Frederick William Pavy

Frederick William Pavy

William Frederick Pavy (1829-1911) was a British physician and physiologist and the discoverer of Pavy's disease, a cyclic or recurrent physiologic albuminuria.

Pavy worked with Richard Bright at Guy's Hospital in London, England, in the study of Bright's disease or kidney failure. He was also a leading expert in diabetes, and spent almost 20 years trying to disprove Claude Bernard's theory of the glycogen-glucose metabolic cycle.

He was a president of the Medical and Chirurgical Society of London (1900).
