Anatomische Beiträge zur Lehre von den Pocken. 2 pts.

Wroclaw (Vratislava, Breslau): M. Cohn & Weigert, 18741875.

In the course of his important studies on smallpox, Weigert carried out the first successful staining of bacteria (see No. 2482). His fine description of the destructive effects of the smallpox virus on the skin led to the coining of the term “coagulation necrosis” as a name for the process causing the development of the lesions.

Ueber die pathologische Gerinnungs-Vorgänge.

Virchows Arch. path. Anat., 79, 87-123, 1880.

First description (p. 106) of myocardial infarction. Leibowitz called this "the most significant contribution by a pathologist to the history of coronary heart disease." He also wrote, "This work not only provides a general description of myocardial changes following a coronary thrombosis, but also includes a very important detail, namely that of the destruction of cell nuclei. Likewise it stresses also the clinical history, since pathological findings largely depend upon the time factor" (Leibowitz, History of coronary heart disease).
