It is with great sadness that we inform you this morning of his passing after much struggle for life,” reads an excerpt from the publication. The organization also stressed the importance of Marcello’s work in medicine: “We are very, very sad, but sure he was a warrior and will now rest in peace.

Receive, Silvia, Ana and other family members, the affection, comfort, embrace and acknowledgment from the Board of SBEM, from the Editorial Board of the Archives of Endocrinology and Metabolism and from all of Brazilian Endocrinology, for whatever legacy remains.” Silvia has not appeared yet.
