Abstract

This is an interesting sketch of the life, personal characteristics and medical career of one of the outstanding figures in the history of dermatology. It is of interest to note that Alibert's dissertation on pernicious or intermittent ataxic fevers, for the doctor's degree, passed through five editions and was translated into English by Charles Caldwell in Philadelphia in 1808. His main work on skin diseases is the large atlas, which appeared in 1806 and which is a classical contribution. Alibert's clinics on skin diseases, which in the summer time were conducted under the trees on the hospital grounds, attracted a large number of students from all countries. The book is of special interest to dermatologists who wish to study the historical growth of their specialty.
