Walter Marget and a brief history of paediatric infectious diseases in Munich, Germany.

Infection 2023 April 5
Theodor Escherich (1857-1911) was one of the key players in early paediatric infectious diseases (PID). In fact, he can be regarded as the first paediatric infectious diseases physician and the founder of this subspecialty. During his long years in service for children, he spent 6 years at the Dr von Hauner children's hospital (1884-1890), laying the foundations for PID clinical care and research in Munich. Walter Marget, founder of this journal and co-founder of the German Society for Infectious Diseases (DGI) graduated from medical school in 1946 and practised in Munich since 1967. His tireless efforts went into establishing close links between clinical paediatrics and microbiological diagnostics culminating in the foundation of the Department of Antimicrobial Therapy and Infection Epidemiology at the Dr von Hauner children's hospital. Walter Marget was a key figure for PID in Germany having trained and supported many clinician scientists who followed in his footsteps. This article gives a brief overview of the history of PID in Munich while commemorating Walter Marget and his achievements in this field and for INFECTION.
