STANLEY CROSBIE, M.D.
Although the clinical-pathologic features of this syndrome are said to have been described by Flemming in 1872 and by Pfeiffer in 1892, the disease takes its proper name from Weber,1 who published his paper in 1925, and from Christian,2 whose paper in 1928 added the word "febrile" to its descriptive title. The first case reported in this country was by Gilchrist and Ketron14 in 1916 under the title, "A Unique Case of Atrophy of the Fatty Layer of the Skin Preceded by the Ingestion of the Fat by Large Phagocytic Cells— Macrophages."
Shuman3 reviewed the literature in his paper published
