PEREZ ALBACETE, Mariano. Archivos Españoles de Urología: Enrique Pérez Castro’s direction (1944-1980).. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.6, pp.673-684. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objectives: With the occasion of the centenary of the birth of Dr. Enrique Pérez Castro, founder, first director and editor of the journal Archivos Españoles de Urología, at this time when the issue No. 61 comes out, we performed a historic study of the evolution of the journal throughout the 36 years it was ruled by him, between April 1944 and December 1980. Methods/Results: Complete review of the 158 issues, together with three extraordinary issues, included in the 31 volumes edited in the period Dr. Perez Castro directed it. Conclusions: The journal, senior journal in Spanish Urology, developed its main objective of being the communication and knowledge exchange media, with the exposition of scientific works, among the members of the Spanish urological community who admitted it with interest and complete acceptation. The work and devotion of Dr. Pérez Castro as director conferred the journal a great quality and achieved to join it to the Spanish Association of Urology, which demonstrated its category and reinforced its diffusion, acceptation and continuity. It is by itself an exceptional document and splendid historic synopsis of our urology over the second half of the 20th century.
