Death of Prof. Dr. S. Ehrmann, Dermatologist
The University of Vienna, and dermatology in particular, have suffered a great loss in the death of Prof. Dr. Salomon Ehrmann. His first researches were in the field of physiology. He then took up dermatology as a specialty, became an assistant to Kaposi and to Neumann, and was later placed in charge of a hospital department of dermatology and syphilology. Some of his chief works are: Studies on Pigmentation, Physiology and Histology of the Skin, Origin of Neoplasms, Differential Diagnosis and Treatment of Skin Diseases, and Atlas of Skin Diseases (masterfully illustrated by the author). In dermatology he introduced many new drugs, medicaments and methods. He developed especially the radiologic treatment of skin disease. He was the first to discovered Spirochaeta pallida in the nerve sheath of syphilitic persons.
