French surgeon and gynaecologist remembered for his pioneer work with genitourinary diseases such as lymphogranuloma venereum and uterine fibroma, with the latter disorder being formerly referred to as "Huguier's disease." He provided an early description of the anastomosis around the isthmus of the uterus, which is sometimes referred to as "Huguier's circle". His name is also lent to two anatomical structures associated with the ear: "Huguier's canal" (or the "anterior canaliculus of chorda tympani," AKA the "canal of Huguier", or "iter chordae anterius") and "Huguier's sinus" (or the "fossula fenestrae vestibuli," AKA the little fossa of the vestibular window). He is also credited with development of a specialized hysterometer (uterine sound).
In 1834 he received his medical doctorate at Paris, and was later a surgeon at the Hôpital Beaujon. In 1835 he became an associate professor of the faculty of medicine at Paris. He died on 12 January 1873, aged 68.
