DELGADO-MATALLANA, Gustavo Ernesto. Daniel Alcides Carrión García in the Crypt of the Heroes of the War of 1879. Acta méd. peruana [online]. 2015, vol.32, n.2, pp.118-124. ISSN 1728-5917.

Daniel Alcides Carrion Garcia is officially considered a martyr of Medicine, a national hero, master of the Peruvian Medicine, patron of the National Medicine. Since March 24, 2015, his name is in the Crypt of Heroes. After twenty-one years of tenacious and unflagging work and process, finally the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Peru perform a ceremony in which the name Carrion enrolled in a wall plate in the Crypt of Heroes of the "Pacific War", as a tribute in perpetuity for his paradigmatic heroism. Only the name plaque was placed, because it has not been possible to identify and locate the mortal remains of our hero. In the historiographical exegesis of Daniel A. Carrion two historical events that exalt him as a patriot and scientist are set, which I remind.

Palabras clave : Carrion's disease; Daniel A. Carrion; patriot; scientific; Crypt of Heroes; tribute.
