Hugo Rühle

Hugo Ernst Heinrich Rühle (September 12, 1824 – July 11, 1888) was a German physician born in Liegnitz (today Legnica, Poland).

From 1842 to 1848 he studied medicine in Berlin, where he came under the influence of Rudolf Virchow (1821–1902) Benno Reinhardt (1819-1852) and Ludwig Traube (1818–1876). After graduation he worked at the Allerheiligenhospital in Breslau, and in 1852 remained in Breslau as an assistant at the medical clinic of Friedrich Theodor von Frerichs (1819–1885). In 1859 he became director of the polyclinic and a professor at the University of Breslau.

From 1860 to 1864 he was director of the clinical medicine department at the University of Greifswald, afterwards holding down the same position at the University of Bonn. Two of his better known assistants were physician Hugo von Ziemssen (1829–1902) at Greifswald and physiologist Nathan Zuntz (1847–1920) at Bonn.
