" One of the foremost doctors of his time, Paiva was exiled from Portugal in 1809 and took up residence in Bahia, where he was affiliated with the medical-surgical college. In addition to his own prolific contributions to medical literature, he was responsible for introducing, popularizing, and translating the theories of his European contemporaries among Brazilians."
