Galen often gives no information about the patient when he tells a story. It is usually possible to determine the sex grammatically, and it is almost always male, although Galen does tell about twenty-five stories about women. It is also my impression that when the patient is a child Galen usually says so, and he tells about twenty-five stories about children.
