Biography of Louis Frédéric Wickham
Louis Frédéric Wickham received his education at Paris and obtained his doctorate in 1890. He then turned to the study of dermatology, worked several years at the Hôpital Saint-Louis, and in 1897 became Médecin at the Hôpital Saint Lazare. From 1905 he concerned himself with radium research, and occasioned the establishment of the Laboratoire Biologique du Radium. His work concerns the treatment of angiomas, celoids, carcinomas of the skin, and other dermatoses, and on the effect of radium on visceral carcinoses. In 1888 he was commissioned to report on the methods of teaching dermatology in England. He designed a multibladed knife for scarification treatment of lupus vulgaris.
