Scarpa Scar·pa (skär'pə), Antonio. 1752-1832.
Italian anatomist and surgeon known for his studies of the ear and nerves and for his description of atherosclerosis.
I have seen them dart forth from another medium precisely as described by scarpa.
No one but scarpa, Galeotti, and Bottazzi knew what it was for.
Sometimes the first manifestation is a hydrops and a fluctuating swelling in the upper part of scarpa's triangle.
