Caption

Thomas Hodgkin (1798-1866), British physician. Hodgkin was appointed as a pathologist (Professor of Morbid Anatomy) at Guy's Hospital, London, England in 1825. In 1832, he was the first person to describe lymphadenoma or Hodgkin's disease. In this cancer, unchecked cell growth in the lymph nodes leads to enlargement of the nodes in the armpit, neck and groin, along with a diseased spleen. Hodgkin was curator of the hospital's museum. He also helped to found the Aborigines' Protection Society in 1838. This photograph, by Ernest Edwards (1837-1903), was published in 'Photographs of Eminent Medical Men' (volume 2, 1868).
