Johann Lukas Schönlein (November 30, 1793 - January 23, 1864) was a German professor of medicine, born in Bamberg. He studied medicine at Landshut, Jena, Göttingen, and Würzburg. After teaching at Würzburg and Zurich, he was called to Berlin in 1839, where he taught therapeutics and pathology.[1] He served as physician to Frederick William IV.
He was one of the first German medical professors to lecture in the native tongue instead of Latin. Schönlein described purpura rheumatica (Schönlein's disease) an allergic non-thrombopenic purpura rash that is known today as Henoch-Schönlein purpura.[2] He also discovered the parasitic cause of ringworm or favus (Achorion Schönleinii).[3]
