Andral was an outstanding French physician, perhaps best known for his research on blood pathology. In 1815, he entered La Faculté de Médecine in Paris, where he met Lerminier at his clinic in 1818. "Rising daily at 0500h and with great single-mindedness and diligence, Andral set about recording and collating his own succinct observations, made…both on patients in the hospital wards, and at the subsequent postmortem examinations…. This amassed material was the source of his first publication: Clinique Médicale…. In general, the four volumes [of the first edition] comprised clear, precise, clinical case reports, relevant postmortem findings and a summary no most of these cases also, there were general reviews on the medical conditions recorded in the same volume" (Doyle, p. 491).
