Buhl-Dittrich law

Buhl-Dittrich law

An obsolete term that eponymously dignifies the clinical “rule” that miliary tuberculosis is always preceded by a focus of caseating infection; linked to Ludwig von Buhl (1816–1880) and Franz Dittrich (1815–1859), both German pathologists. It is no longer used in the working medical parlance.
