Lucien-Marie Pautrier, recognized during his life as a world-renowned dermatologist and venereologist, also wrote prolifically, established and headed a leading department at the medical school of Strasbourg, built an imposing structure to house the department, traveled widely in both Europe and the United States and founded the Société des Amis de la Musique at Strasbourg. He did all this while and between the two tragic World Wars that engulfed his beloved France. In the United States, his name is eponymically associated with Pautrier's microabscesses in mycosis fungoides despite the fact that he did not first describe them.
