A.G. Maurice Raynaud ( 1834 - 1881 )  Category ( Medical_Doctors ) [suggest a correction]
 

When one revisits medical history, it isn’t possible to ignore the French doctor who discovered Raynaud’s Disease. The disease that can and will affect the blood flow to extremities, Raynaud’s Disease was named after AG Maurice Raynaud.

A.G. Maurice Raynaud was born in 1834. His father was a university professor. With the help of his uncle, who was a very well known doctor in Paris, A.G. Maurice Raynaud was able to gain his medical degree in 1862.

While A.G. Maurice Raynaud would never go on to secure a medical position in any of the hospitals of Paris, his discovery of the Raynaud Disease perhaps made up for it. The disease which is one that is known to affect the ears, nose, and extremities, was something that Raynaud tried to explain when he discovered it in 1862.

Raynaud’s Disease goes through various stages which is something that Dr. Raynaud tried to describe. This included three color changes as well as the obvious appearance of flat nails.

The disease is thought to be hereditary and at the time that Raynaud discovered the disease that would later carry his name, there was very little to go on as far as prevention or treatment. The one recommendation that seemed to continue into the future was that patients should try to stay warm and avoid consuming anything that would constrict blood vessels.

Dr. A.G. Maurice Raynaud discovered the disease that was one that needed to be discovered and researched because of the complications involved with the more severe cases. In severe cases, patients were forced to face amputation.

Raynaud would never achieve his desire to work in a hospital but he was a wonderful teacher and mentor to others. He lectured at universities and was well respected. He also wrote a book on the research he performed.

Dr. A.G. Maurice Raynaud died in 1881.
