Answer: History: The first case of infantile-onset Niemann-Pick disease was described in 1914 by the German neurologist Albert Niemann. Niemann described a young child with an enlarged liver and spleen, enlarged lymph glands, swelling and a darkening of the skin of the face. The child had brain and nervous system impairment and died before the age of two. Later, in the 1920's, Luddwick Pick studied tissues after the death of such children and provided evidence of the new disorder. Problem in assignments? Homeworks?
