All content is based on the medical literature and our personal experience which started with a first patient in 1983. Later in 1993 our Arbeitsgruppe Tropheryma whippelii was established at the University of Heidelberg (Germany) which was operative until May 2004. Since then, our interest continues - now on a more international level. Until present, we have studied more than 190 patients with a documented Whipple´s disease .
