Wilhelm Meyer (physician)
The Danish physician Wilhelm Meyer (1824-1895) was the first to describe the clinical condition of nasal obstruction (blocked nose) with chronic mouth breathing, snoring, dull facial expression, and hearing impairment due to adenoid hypertrophy.
Additional recommended knowledge
Likewise he suggested how to treat the condition surgically by removing the adenoids with an adenotome. Adenoidectomy is still one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in children.
