Henle Hen·le (hěn'lə), Friedrich Gustav Jacob. 1809-1885.
German anatomist whose works, including Handbuch der Rationellen Pathologie (1846-1852), integrated the study of pathology and physiology. He is also known for advancing histology with his microscopic anatomical examinations.

henle, who had very little sympathy for Schwann's religious views, speaks most kindly of him as a man and a comrade.
