Belgian professor at Ghent university and liberal politician.

Deneffe studied medicine at Ghent University, and completed additional studies at the universities of London and Paris. As a doctor in the surgical sciences, he studied in Ghent at the department of folk science, where he became professor in 1873. From 1875 to his emeritus in 1905 he led the operative surgery department in the Bijloke.

He served as a liberal city councillor in Ghent from 1881 to 1907, and engaged in the improvement of public health care.

In addition, he also had an interest in history. Thus he was involved in the rescue of the Gravensteen. Part of his collection is exhibited in the Museum of History of Medicine.

He died in Ghent on 10 June 1908, aged 72.
