|Contribution||Reported discovery of a bacillus in unstained tuberculosis tissue.|
|Notes||Paul von Baumgarten was a German physician. Ackernnecht (1968) says he discovered the bacillus "simultaneously" with Koch. According to Brock, he reported his observations a few days earlier (March 18) than Koch. He did not make pure cultures or carry out animal experiments. His work was recorded in print (abstract of meeting?) in the same year.|
