    • 1881, author incertain, Lyon Médical[1], page 564:
      Les premiers auteurs qui ont étudié ce phénomène, Taupin, Piorry, Hourmann (Revue médicale française et étrangère, juillet 1839), qui lui a donné le nom d’autophonie, Hornemann, ont eu le tort, d’après l’auteur, de donner à ce signe une signification symptomatique trop étendue, et de créer des variétés purement artificielles, en admettant l’autophonie normale, ægophonique, bronchophonique, etc.
