Abstract

The authors present Jean-Gaspard-Blaise Goyrand, from Aix, who is not simply remembered for his description of the wrist fracture which has retained his name. His theses concerning permanent retraction of the fingers, presented to the Royal Academy of Medicine in 1833 and 1834, were contrary to those proposed by Dupuytren and proved to be completely accurate. All of Goyrand's work was edited by Masson in 1870, including a superb case report of giant elephantiasis of the penis and scrotum, a study on cleft lip and the technique of using collodion bands to close large wounds [corrected].
