Example text

Indeed, while Morgagni demonstrated that a specific organ was often the seat of a disease, Bichat went further and showed that the disease might be associated with a specific tissue or structure within the organ. During the course of his research he identified and described no fewer than twenty-one different tissues. His book Anatomie Génerale Appliquée [91] is unusual in that it does not contain a single illustration. The German, Samuel Thomas von Sömmering (1755– 1830) was one of the most eminent anatomists of his day.
