Troltsch was an otologist who studied at the University of Berlin and the the University of Wurzburg. He was a student of both Albrecht von Graefe (1828–1870), and in Prague with ophthalmologist Carl Ferdinand von Arlt (1812–1887). In Britain he studied under two other physicians: Joseph Toynbee (1815–1866) and William Wilde (1815–1876). "Troltsch was a pioneer of modern otology, and made improvements regarding diagnostics and pathological-anatomical research in the study of the ear. He is credited for popularizing the "reflecting aural mirror" (a device consisting of a concave mirror with an aperture in the center) for use in otoscopy. In 1864 with Adam Politzer (1835–1920) and Hermann Schwartze (1837–1910), he founded the first journal dedicated to ear disorders, called Archiv fur Ohrenheilkunde (Archive for Otology). His name is lent to "Troltsch's recesses", or singularly called the "anterior and posterior pouches of Troltsch", which are anatomical spaces between the malleolar folds and the tympanic membrane. Today in Germany, the "Anton von Troltsch Prize" is an annual award given to the best published work in the field of ENT, (Ear, Nose and Throat)." – Wikip.
