Since 1838 — the head of medical department Imperial in-that for deaf-mutes in Paris. Scientific works of P. Menyer are numerous and various. They are devoted to problems of pathology of pregnancy, suppurative processes in a wound, to researches of the hearing aid (1841), questions of training of deaf-mutes (1853), studying of the reasons of an inborn surdomutism (1856). Special popularity to P. Menyer was brought by his work «About the injury of an inner ear giving symptoms of an apoplectic hematencephalon» (the report in the Parisian academy of Sciences in 1861). P. Menyer's merit is that it gave the colourful description a wedge, pictures of this disease and connected it with damage of an inner ear. In the subsequent P. Menyer's assumption was confirmed, and the disease described by it since 1895 began to bear his name (see. Menyera disease ).
