Traces of Marion B. Sulzberger in the Museum of Wax Moulages in Zurich and their importance for the history of dermatology


Geiges, M L (2009). Traces of Marion B. Sulzberger in the Museum of Wax Moulages in Zurich and their importance for the history of dermatology. Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, 60(6):980-984.

Abstract

Marion B. Sulzberger was one of the most famous American dermatologists. He had received his training in dermatology in Zurich (Switzerland) from 1926 to 1929. The collection of moulages in Zurich still preserves outstanding wax models of Sulzberger's scientific work. They are impressive examples of the purpose and value of moulages at the beginning of the 20th century being used as teaching aids but also as documents and illustrations in scientific articles and textbooks. Today, the wax models of Sulzberger's work belong to the most important examples of moulages used in medical historical research. They also have value for teaching dermatology to medical students.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
