Dr Wenceslao López Albo dedicated three articles to his master, Dr Nicolás Achúcarro. The second article was published in 1923 in Gaceta Médica del Norte, the official publication of the Bilbao Academy of Medical Sciences, and has been completely overlooked. It has not been cited in any of the numerous scientific articles or biographies dedicated to the Basque neuroscientist. This work presents and discusses that article, the longest of the three, in which Dr López Albo put the greatest effort into describing the extraordinary personality of Dr Achúcarro. The other two articles by Dr López Albo and the commemorative sessions that the Bilbao Academy of Medical Sciences dedicated to Achúcarro in 1918 and 1968 are also briefly discussed.
