Ludwig Pick

Aged unknown

Ludwig Pick (31 August 1868 – 3 February 1944) was a German pathologist born in Landsberg an der Warthe. In 1893 he earned his medical doctorate in Leipzig, and subsequently practiced medicine at Leopold Landau's private Frauenklinik, where he remained until 1906. That same year he became director of the department of pathological anatomy at the city hospital Friedrichshain-Berlin. Later on, he was imprisoned by the Nazis, and died on 3 February 1944 at the Theresienstadt Concentration Camp. Ludwig Pick made several contributions to academic pathology, particularly in the field of genitourinary diseases, and also in the study of melanotic pigmentation. In 1912 he coined the term pheochromocytoma to describe the chromaffin color change in tumor cells associated with adrenal medullary tumors.
