Charles Bouchard


French pathologist and an esperantist, remembered for his work with infectious and nutritional diseases. He was a student of Jean Charcot at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital, and with Charcot described a disorder that would later be known as a "Charcot-Bouchard aneurysm". It is described as a small aneurysm on cerebral perforated vessels that could be the cause of intracranial hemorrhages.

His name is also lent to the eponymous "Bouchard's nodes", which are bony outgrowths of the proximal interphalangeal joints, and are a sign of osteoarthritis.

He was the author of Traité de Pathologie Générale, a compendium of medical pathology, and also of other noted writings on the subject.

He died on 28 October 1915, aged 78, in Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon.
