Death of Prof. Otto Heubner
Prof. Otto Heubner died, October 17, in Dresden-Loschwitz, at the age of 83. He was a pupil of the internist Professor Wunderlich. At the age of 25, he became a privatdozent in internal medicine, at the University of Leipzig. In 1871 he published his observations as contributions to internal medicine, laying the chief emphasis on the manifestations of dysentery. In 1873, he was appointed professor extraordinarius. The following year, he published his monograph on syphilitic involvement of the cerebral arteries, on which he based the clinical, anatomic and pathologic aspects of endarteritis. About 1883, Heubner began to devote his chief energies to researches in pediatrics. In 1894, he responded to a call from the University of Berlin, where he became the successor of the pediatrician Henoch and the occupant of the chair of pediatrics. Here he developed great activity as an investigator, teacher and consultant.
