Abstract

Introduction: Distinguished as an anatomist, pathologist, and clinician, the Frenchman Charles Prosper Ollivier d'Angers dedicated his life to accelerating the forefront of neuroscience. At a young age, he explored the diseases and disorders of the spinal cord during a time when clinical neurological investigation scarcely existed. Ollivier d'Angers coined the term "syringomyelia." Conclusion: The coinage of the term syringomyelia by d'Angers shed light on the disorder causing more practitioners to investigate the spinal cord and its defects.
