German gynaecologist who published two papers in 1899 on a certain type of ovarian tumour that would later become known as a "Brenner tumour". In 1932 pathologist Robert Meyer coined the term in honour of Fritz Brenner, who described the tumour in a 1907 article titled "Das Oophoroma folliculare."

Orthmann studied medicine at the universities of Berlin, Tübingen and Göttingen, receiving his doctorate in 1882. After graduation, he worked at the University of Marburg as an assistant under surgeon Wilhelm Roser and pathologist Felix Jacob Marchand. Later on, he worked at the city hospital in Wiesbaden and at August Eduard Martin's private gynaecological clinic in Berlin. In 1899 he took charge of the private clinic in Berlin when Martin was chosen as a professor at the University of Greifswald.

He died on 18 August 1922 in Berlin, aged 63.
