Frederic Lewy

Frederic Henry Leweya (born Friedrich Heinrich Lewy, January 28, 1885 in Berlin[1] - October 5, 1950 in Haverford, Pennsylvania) was a prominent neurologist. He is perhaps best known for the discovery of Lewy bodies, which are a characteristic indicator of Parkinson's disease and Dementia with Lewy bodies.


  • Note a: He is consistently referred to as "Lewy", although he changed his names during the US years, ending up with "Lewey".[citation needed]
