First Edition. Ahlfeld, a gynecologist and obstetrician, was one of several medical researchers who helped to put teratology on a scientific footing in the latter half of the nineteenth century. His Die Missbildung des Menschen gives a systematic presentation of congenital malformations in humans and explains their modes of origin. The plates reproduce images of important specimens from otherwise inaccessible sources. Garrison-Morton.com 534.66.
