Duhring’s best work in dermatology. He brought together, under the name of “dermatitis herpetiformis” (“Duhring’s disease”) the group of eruptions which morphologically lay between urticaria and the toxic erythemas on the one hand and pemphigus on the other. Duhring wrote the first American textbook on dermatology.
