Example text

Jan Janský (1873–1921) Jan Janský was born in Prague. He studied medicine at the Charles University in Prague, where he won his medical degree on 14 May 1898. After graduation, he worked as a nonresident physician—first at the First Medical Clinic and then, from November 1899, at the Psychiatry Department, now with the rank of assistant professor. In 1907, he defended his habilitation thesis entitled ‘Hematological Study of Psychotics’, and in 1914 was appointed Professeur Extraordinaire and deputy head physician of the Psychiatry Department.

He was later also appointed as pathologist to the National Hospital for the Paralysed and Epileptic in Queen Square, London. At the time of his death in 1918 from infection following a routine prostatectomy, he was Dean of the Medical School at the National Hospital. He was author of some 106 articles in the short time between 1892 and his untimely death in 1918. His first publication in St Bart Hospital Reports (1892) was on progressive muscular atrophy just after Werdnig (1891) but before Hoffmann (1893) had made a more complete description of what is known as Werdnig–Hoffmann disease.

This was the first then known publication on what is now CLN3 disease, juvenile although it is predated by the more recently discovered article in Norwegian by Stengel in 1826 in the journal Eyr (Stengel, 1826a). Mayou (1904) and others described further cases in the period to 1914 when Batten published the neuropathological findings in the Quarterly Journal of Medicine (Batten, 1914). Batten was well aware of the German literature and, being fluent in German, knew of the works of Vogt (Vogt, 1905, Vogt, 1907), and Bielschowsky (Bielschowsky, 1913) as well as those of Spielmeyer (Spielmeyer, 1906) and Stock (Stock, 1908).
