Description

Claude Lallemand was an early 19th-century French surgeon who served in the armies of the Empire. He also trained under the famous French surgeon Guillaume Dupuytren. In this work, Lallemand describes in great detail a facial reconstruction of a young female, who had lost part of her cheek and lower lip from a spreading, malignant pustule.
