Klinische und anatomische Beobachtungen über die Krankheiten von Aegypten.

Arch. physiol. Heilk., 13, 528-75, 1854.

Griesinger connected the worm of ankylostomiasis with Egyptian chlorosis, a condition in which the worm had previously been noted without its being considered the causal agent (pp. 555-61). Apparently Bilharz in 1853 came to the same conclusion. The disease was for a time called “Griesinger’s disease”. Partial English translation in Kean (No. 2268.1).
