Hide Profile

"Julius Arnold (1835-1910), a famous pathologist, was the son of anatomist Friedrich Arnold. He studied medicine at Heidelberg, Prague, Vienna and Berlin, where he was a student of Rudolf Virchow. He was professor of pathology and head of the department at Heidelberg. During his lifetime Arnold published more than 120 articles on pathological anatomy and histology. His lectures were of great importance to the schools of pathology and cell division where he was well known for his contributions on the fine anatomy of the miliary tubercle and on the effects caused by inhalation of dust and metal particles. However, he is most famous for his discovery of the disorder known as Arnold-Chiari malformation of the brain, which he discovered separately from Hans Chiari. His students coined the eponym 'Arnold-Chiari malformation' in honor of both men."--Antiquarian bookseller's description.
