Honoring George Whipple

George H. Whipple performed an autopsy on a physician, 37 yrs of age. The patient had died of a condition which had not been described up to that point in time. Whipple named it, ‘lipodystrophia intestinalis’. In the walls of the small intestine and lymph nodes, he found granular material. The material stained for fatty acids. The condition was later named Whipple’s Disease by others who described his original description as “a classic of clarity, objectivity and completeness.”
