Medico della Peste- Plague Doctor

Bongiorno from Firenze, Italia.

In my meanderings through the Old Boot, I came across a plague doctor's mask. As an infectious diseases physician I am naturally attracted to all things plague. I have previously blogged about the loimology, or the study of plague and pestilence.

I purchased one such plague doctor's mask for my home office.


I plan not to wear it in the hospital.


  1. I think you should wear it at work.

  2. Perhaps, but only on the general medical service, for greater shock value.
