Hutchinson and Nettleship, nettlerash and albinism
Abstract:With specialization still in its infancy, Victorian surgeons were often concerned with the diagnosis and care of skin disorders. The careers of three London surgeons from successive generations, Sir James Paget, Sir Jonathan Hutchinson and Edward Nettleship are discussed with emphasis on their mutual influence and contributions to dermatology. Nettleship’s original description of urticaria pigmentosa and his research into the inheritance of albinism are reviewed in more detail.
