REYES B, Humberto. Raúl B. Etcheverry, M.D. (1909-2014). Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2014, vol.142, n.3, pp.395-397. ISSN 0034-9887.

Professor Raúl B. Etcheverry, M.D., was a founder of Chilean Hematology back in the 1940's and a practicing physician and teacher until an advanced age. Being a superb clinician, he was admired by his ability to unveil from the most common to the most difficult diagnosis of blood disorders and neoplasms by examining blood smears and cytology samples. He trained in Hematology a large number of physicians and technicians coming from several countries in Latin America as well as from Chile. Besides medicine, he conducted seminal studies to unveil ethnic characteristics of the original inhabitants of Chile identifying blood groups and other genetic markers in mummies and in current living descendants, from Northern and Southern Chile and from Easter Island. He was a prominent scholar that was awarded high titles and distinctions from the University of Chile, the Chilean Academy of Medicine, the Chilean Government, and several hematological societies from Chile and other countries. After 104 years of fruitful life, he passed away leaving a vast number of disciples and admirers.
