Younger Szabó Jenő (1915-1975) graduated medicine in 1938. He worked as a gynecologist at Pestszenterzsébet, Kolozsvár, and then Kézdivásárhely, where he started a maternity nurse school. He was in Russian captivity. After returning, he was placed to Szentgyörgy, Kézdivásárhely, and Kovászna, where he organized an obstetrics and gynecology ward. He worked there until his death.

He had 425 publications. We reveal those which are about the history of medicine. Older Szabó Zoltán (1924-) graduated medicine in 1950. He was an assistant-lecturer next to professor Putnoky, when on political grounds he was transferred to the Public Sanitation Authority of Marosvásárhely, and then arrested.
