Anatomie pathologique du corps humain. 2 vols.Paris: J.-B. Baillière, 1829 – 1842.
The fine hand-colored lithographs of gross pathology make this one of the greatest works of its kind. Cruveilhier, first Professor of Pathological Anatomy in Paris, gave the first description of multiple sclerosis (in vol. 2 above), and an early description of “Cruveilhier’s palsy” (see No. 4734). Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis and ulceration of the stomach due to hyperacidity were also for the first time described in the above work; to each the name “Cruveilhier’s disease” has been attached. From publication in fascicules, 1829-42. See Eugene S. Flamm, "The neurology of Jean Cruveilhier," Medical History, 17 (1973) 343–355. (Available from PubMedCentral at this link.)
The extensive text accompanying many of Cruveilhier's plates was translated into English in John Allard Jeançon (1831-1903), Pathological anatomy, pathological and physical diagnosis. A series of clinical reports comprising the principal diseases of the human body (Cincinnati: Progress Publishing Co., 1884). Jeançon, a French physician who immigrated to the United States and served as a military surgeon during the American Civil War, also provided fine chromolithographed reproductions of many of Cruveilhier's plates, without crediting Cruveilhier either for the text or plates. Jeançon's version remains the only English translation of any part of Cruveilhier's pathological atlas.

Sur la paralysie musculaire, progressive, atrophique.Bull. Acad. Méd. (Paris), 18, 490-502, 546-83, 1852 – 1853.
“Cruveilhier’s palsy”, the progressive muscular atrophy already described by Duchenne and Aran. The slimness of the anterior roots was first noticed by Cruveilhier and was thought to be the essential lesion until Luys (No. 4737) reported degeneration of the anterior horn cells.
