Introducing a Series of Notable Notes About Historical FiguresComment on “Take Your Pick”

JAMA Dermatol. 2013;149(6):767. doi:10.1001/jamadermatol.2013.454

As the oldest English-language dermatology journal in continuous publication, it is appropriate for JAMA Dermatology to acknowledge the English-language publication of a landmark text of dermatologic medical history: Pantheon of Dermatology: Outstanding Historical Figures by Christoph Löser, Gerd Plewig, and Walter Burgdorf, published by Springer in 2013. The text and over 2200 illustrations provide insight into the lives of 209 outstanding dermatologists who developed dermatology over 6 centuries. Since the founding of JAMA Dermatology in 1882 as the Journal of Cutaneous and Venereal Disease, the journal has published definitive manuscripts by the leaders in our field. It is a privilege to be able to give a glimpse into the lives of some of these leaders with Notable Notes derived from the Pantheon of Dermatology.
