Abstract

In 1978, he became Assistant Professor at the University of Basel, and led the Institute there from 1988 until 2007. Mihatsch made Basel a center for prospective renal pathologists.His most significant achievement is the description of the connection between phenacetin administration and nephropathy with renal atrophy and the concomitant occurrence of urothelial carcinoma. His campaign against phenacetin finally contributed to a ban on the medication.His textbook Renal Pathology in Biopsy is a classic of medical literature.As a leading nephropathologist worldwide, Prof. Dr. Med. Michael J. Mihatsch received the Rudolf Virchow Medal of the German Society of Pathologists in 2019.
