Caption: Jacques Forestier (1890-1978), French physician. Forestier qualified as a doctor in Paris, where he worked with rheumatology patients. He pioneered the use of gold salts as a remedy for rheumatoid arthritis, still considered to be an effective treatment for the condition. Conditions described by or named for him include Forestier's disease (diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis), and Forestier-Certonciny syndrome (polymyalgia rheumatica), described in 1953. This photograph is from the Bain News Service, one of the USA's earliest news picture libraries. Most of the Bain images date from the period from the 1890s to the 1930s.
