Alsatian otolarynologist and one of a handful of professors in Germany who specialized in the field of otology. Much of his scientific research dealt with comparative anatomy of the ear, in particular the inner ear's labyrinth. He also made significant contributions involving diagnosis and treatment of ear tumours.
He studied under Anton von Tröltsch (1829–1890) at the University of Würzburg, then continued his education at the École de Médecine in Strasbourg. In 1870 he published Traité pratique des maladies de l'oreille, a French translation of Tröltsch's Lehrbuch der Ohrenheilkunde.
During the Franco-Prussian War he served with the Croix-Rouge (French Red Cross) on the battlefields of Wissembourg and Wörth. Later on he became a lecturer (from 1873) at the renamed Kaiser-Wilhelm-Universität in Strassburg, where in 1881 he was appointed associate professor of otolaryngology and director at the clinic of ear diseases. After his death he was succeeded at Strassburg by Paul Manasse.
He died on 15 September 1900 in Strasbourg, aged 62.
