Recklinghausen Friedrich Daniel von (1833-1910)
German pathologist. A professor of pathology at the universities of Königsberg, Würzburg, and Strasbourg, Recklinghausen is best known for his descriptions of two disorders: neurofibromatosis, sometimes called Recklinghausen's disease, in 1882; and osteitis fibrosa in 1891. He also rendered classic descriptions of the smallest lymph channels in connective tissue (1862) and of calculi found in the pancreas in cases of diabetes (1864).
