Histology

HISTOLOGY [Greek: histos, tissue + logos,  treatise] Marcello Malpighi (1628–1694) founded the field of histology with his discoveries and description of several microscopic structures including capillaries and the epidermis. The term was coined by A.F.J.H. Meyer in 1819. The earliest histo-pathological study of the tissues was done (without the benefit of a microscope) by Marie François Xavier Bichat  (1771–1802) of Paris in 1800. Histology was defined as ‘the science of the minute structure of the organs of the animals and plants’ by John Thomas Quekett(1815–1861) in 1852. The earliest book on the subject Allgemeine Anatomia was published by Friedrich Jacob Henley (1809–1885) in 1841. The first textbook in English was The Microscopic Anatomy of the Human Body in Health and Disease, published by Arthur Hill Hassall(1817–1894) in 1846. Rudolph Albert von Kollicker (1817–1905) published a further textbook,  Manual of Human Histology, in 1852. A Czech professor of physiology at Breslau, Jan E. Purkinje (1787–1869) made his laboratory ‘a cradle of histology’ with several important contributions. Other notable pioneers include: Theodor Schwann(1810–1882); William Bowman(1816–1892); Edward Sharpey-Schafer(1850–1935); Salomon Stricker(1834–1898); Karl Wilhelm von Kupffer (1829–1902);Domenico Majocchi (1849–1929) and Ludwig Aschoff (1866–1942).
