The book "De Arte Gymnastica" brought Mercuriale fame. He was called to occupy the chair of practical medicine in Padua in 1569. During this time, he translated the works of Hippocrates, and, armed with this knowledge, wrote "De morbis cutaneis" (1572), considered the first scientific tract on skin diseases; "De morbis muliebribus" ("On the diseases of women") (1582); "De morbis puerorum" ("On the diseases of children") (1583); "De oculorum et
affectibus" ("The eys and ears and emotions"); and "Censura e dispositio operum Hippocratis" (Venice, 1583). In "De morbis puerorum", Mercuriali observed contemporary trends in child-rearing.

The convulsive symptoms from ergot-tainted rye may have been the source of accusations of bewitchment that spurred the Salem witch trials. This medical explanation for the theory of “bewitchment” was first propounded by Linnda R. Caporael in 1976 in an article in "Science". In her article, Caporael argues that the convulsive symptoms, such as crawling sensations in the skin, tingling in the fingers, vertigo, "tinnitus
", headaches, disturbances in sensation, hallucination, painful muscular contractions, vomiting, and diarrhea, as well as psychological symptoms, such as mania, melancholia, psychosis, and delirium, were all symptoms reported in the Salem witchcraft records. Caporael also states there was an abundance of rye in the region as well as climate conditions that could support the tainting of rye. In 1982, historian Mary Matossian raised Caporael’s theory in an article in "American Scientist" in which she argued that symptoms of “bewitchment” resemble the ones exhibited in those afflicted with ergot poisoning.
