Abstract

The German Heinrich August Wrisberg made significant contributions to anatomical knowledge during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. However, very little is known of this early European physician and anatomist. Wrisberg was considered an excellent anatomist and wrote several textbooks in the field. Using standard computer search engines, this report reviews the known literature on this historic figure and notes his multiple contributions to the study of human morphology.
