We are deeply saddened that Professor Otto Braun-Falco passed away on 9 April 2018.

He was chair of dermatology at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich from 1967 until his retirement in 1990. Prof Braun-Falco held four honorary doctorates, was honoured with numerous medals and prizes, and many honorary memberships of national dermatological societies around the world. Among his more than 700 scientific publications, his textbook "Dermatology and Venereology" became the standard work worldwide.
