Medical Definition of His

1. 1. Belonging or pertaining to him; used as a pronominal adjective or adjective pronoun; as, tell John his papers are ready; formerly used also for its, but this use is now obsolete. "No comfortable star did lend his light." (Shak) "Who can impress the forest, bid the tree Unfix his earth-bound root?" (Shak) Also formerly used in connection with a noun simply as a sign of the possessive. "The king his son." Shak. "By young Telemachus his blooming years." Pope. This his is probably a corruption of the old possessive ending -is or -es, which, being written as a separate word, was at length confounded with the pronoun his. 2.
