FRANCE - JUNE 28:  Engraving by Langlois after an original work by Laederick of Dupuytren (1777-1835) who gave his name to various medical complaints including Dupuytren's contracture, a contraction of the fascia of the palm of the hand, which cripples the fingers. He also devised an operation to cure the condition. Dupuytren was a keen advocate of dissection and post mortems for the purposes of research, and was also one of the richest physicians in his time. He was head of surgery at the Hôtel-Dieu in Paris for 20 years, and the first to distinguish between Delirium nervosum and Delirium tremens.   (Photo by SSPL/Getty Images)
