High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Rudolf Robert Maier
(April 9, 1824 - November 7, 1888) was a German pathologist who was
a native of Freiburg im Breisgau. He studied medicine at the
University of Freiburg, where one of his instructors was
orthopedist Louis Georg Friedrich Stromeyer (1804-1876). He
furthered his medical training in Vienna with Carl Rokitansky
(1804-1878), Joseph Hyrtl (1810-1894) and Josef Skoda (1805-1881),
and in Wurzburg under Rudolf Virchow (1821-1902). Afterwards, he
returned to Freiburg where he became an associate professor in
1859. Later he became a full professor, and in 1864 founded the
first institute of pathological anatomy at Freiburg. With Adolf
Kussmaul (1822-1902), Maier provided the first comprehensive
description of periarteritis nodosa, which is sometimes referred to
as Kussmaul-Maier disease. The two doctors described their findings
in the inaugural edition of the journal Deutsches Archiv fur
klinische Medicin, which was co-founded by Friedrich Albert von
Zenker (1825-1898) and Hugo Wilhelm von Ziemssen (1829-1902).
