Frerichs, professor of pathology at Berlin, is particularly remembered for his extensive investigations into diseases of the liver. ?He published two quite distinct monographs under the title Klinik der Leberkrankheiten, which summarized the history and existing knowledge with respect to this organ and added Frerichs? own brilliant conclusions. The degenerative condition known as acute yellow atrophy was treated at length, Frerichs calling attention to the excretion of excessive quantities of leucine and tyrosine and their presence in the urine in crystalline form as pathognomonic for the disease. His most important experimental investigations were on jaundice, [and].he was much interested in the fatty liver, and demonstrated a partial relationship between the diet and its origin? (Long, History of pathology, 268?269). In this book Frerichs also gave a classic description of progressive familial hepatolenticular degeneration (?Wilson?s disease?), which Kinnear Wilson himself described in 1912.
