Friedrich Daniel von Recklinghausen (IPA2|ˈʁɛklɪŋhaʊzən;
December 2, 1833– August 26, 1910) was a German pathologistwho practiced medicine in Würzburg(1866-1872) and Strassburg (1872-1906). Born in Gütersloh, Westphalia, he was the father of physiologist Heinrich von Recklinghausen(1867-1942).
In 1882 Recklinghausen released a monograph which reviewed previous literature and characterized the tumors of
Neurofibromatosis type 1or NF-1 as neurofibromas, consisting of an intense commingling of nerve cells and fibrous tissue. NF-1 is sometimes referred to as von Recklinghausen syndrome.
In 1889 Recklinghausen coined the term
haemochromatosis, and was the first to provide the link between haemochromatosis and iron accumulation in body tissue. This disease was initially described in 1865 by Armand Trousseau. Recklinghausen published his findings in "Hämochromatose, Tageblatt der Naturforschenden Versammlung". He also established a method of staining the lines of cell junctions with silver, a procedure that led to Julius Friedrich Cohnheim’s research on leukocytemigration and inflammation. Recklinghausen died in Strassburg.
