Christian Georg Schmorl
Christian Georg Schmorl (May 2, 1861 - August 14, 1932) was a German pathologist who was a native of Mügeln. He studied medicine in Leipzig and for most of his career (1894-1931) he was associated with the city hospital in Dresden.
Additional recommended knowledge
Schmorl is remembered for his work in histology and his studies of the human skeleton. He created an histological stain especially designed to show the canaliculi and lamellae in sections of bone. He also described protrusions of the intervertebral disc into the vertebral body. These protusions are now known as Schmorl's nodes. Shortly before his death, Schmorl published Die Gesunde und Kranke Wirbelsäule (The Healthy and Sick Spine).
