And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

John Donne

Dermatology has suffered a great loss, as did all of us, with the passing of Dr Walter H. C. Burgdorf (1943-2015). He was a pioneer in dermatopathology and one of medicine’s finest teachers. Dr Burgdorf published numerous articles on dermatology and edited the English editions of Braun-Falco’s Dermatology and Pantheon of Dermatology,1 among other books.
