Abstract

Holger Werfel Scheuermann (1877–1960) a Danish surgeon serving in Copenhagen published this report in 1921, during the period before the osteochondroses—then know as osteochondritis—were considered similar pathological entities. It appeared near the end of an era when orthopedic disease or surgical eponyms were a mark of distinction. “Scheuermann's disease” entered the list immediately.E.M.B.
