Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles Mantoux (1877 - 1947) was a French physician, the developer of the eponymous serological test for tuberculosis. He graduated from the University of Paris where he studied under Broca. For health reasons he relocated to Cannes but continued to work in Paris during the long vacation periods granted to patients in sanatoriums. In 1908 he presented his first study of intradermal injections to the French Academy of Sciences and published this work in 1910, and in the following years the intradermal test replaced the subcutaneous test (Pirquet test). This, and other contributions to Public health and radiology, was done away from major universities and institutions.show more
