Abstract

Albert Döderlein and his son Gustav had as professors in Munich and Jena a formative influence on the German gynecology in the first half of the 20(th) century. Albert Döderlein discovered the lactobacillus named after him and its function, he was one of the first who employed radiotherapeutics in cancer therapy and introduced the rubber glove in obstetrics and gynecology. But he also wrote the gynecologic text to the "Bill for prevention of progeny suffering from an inherited disease dated 14(th) June 1933". After his time at the university hospital Charité, between 1936 and 1945 he was medical superintendent of the department of gynecology and obstetrics at the Police Hospital in Berlin. He can be regarded as the founder of antenatal care in Germany. Both scientific and historic aspects of the biographies of these two professors are critically looked right past.
