"On p. 295 is a classic description of laryngitis sicca – Türck’s trachoma." [Garrison-Morton]. "In the summer of 1857 Professor Ludwig Türck of Vienna… began to use small long-handled mirrors for the examination of patients in hospital. In his treatise published in 1866 he stated: ‘Half through accident, without knowing of my predecessors, I came to the idea of using a small mirror for the investigation of laryngeal disease…’ He trusted, however, to the sunlight for illumination and by the autumn had put aside his mirrors as useless… Professor Johann Nepomuk Czermak… borrowed Türck’s mirrors… and, with the aid of artificial light, achieved success with them… Both Czermak and Türck published pamphlets on the use of the laryngoscope… and each went to Paris, where they gave rival public demonstrations and lessons in the art of laryngoscopy… Ludwig Türck was the first to apply the laryngoscope to medicine… or at least the first to describe the clinical appearance of laryngeal diseases" [Stevenson & Guthrie].
