Julius Arnold

Julius Arnold (August 19, 1835 – February 3, 1915) was a German pathologist born in Zurich. He was the son of anatomist Friedrich Arnold (1803–1890).

He studied medicine at the Universities of Heidelberg, Prague, Vienna and Berlin, where he was a student of Rudolf Virchow (1821–1902). In 1859 he became a doctor of medicine, and in 1866 he became a professor of pathological anatomy and director of the institute of pathology at Heidelberg. Arnold was the author of 120 articles in the fields of histology and pathological anatomy.

His name is lent to a disorder known as Arnold–Chiari malformation, which occurs when the cerebellar tonsils and the medulla oblongata protrude through the foramen magnum into the spinal canal. Arnold described this malformation in an infant who died shortly after delivery, and published his account in an 1894 paper titled Myelocyste, Transposition von Gewebskeimen und Sympodie. In 1891, Austrian pathologist Hans Chiari (1851–1916) also described this disorder, three years prior to Arnold's findings. In 1907, two of Dr. Arnold's students coined the eponym of "Arnold-Chiari malformation" in honor of both men.

Arnold died in 1915 in Heidelberg.

Famous quotes containing the words arnold and/or julius:

    The working-class ... is now issuing from its hiding-place to assert an Englishman’s heaven-born privilege of doing as he likes, and is beginning to perplex us by marching where it likes, meeting where it likes, bawling what it likes, breaking what it likes.
    —Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)

    Michelangelo said to Pope Julius II, “Self negation is noble, self-culture is beneficent, self-possession is manly, but to the truly great and inspiring soul they are poor and tame compared to self-abuse.” Mr. Brown, here, in one of his latest and most graceful poems refers to it in an eloquent line which is destined to live to the end of time—”None know it but to love it, None name it but to praise.”
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
