Charles Foix (circa 1905)


French internist and neurologist whose main contribution to neurology was to relate thrombosis of specific arteries at autopsies with symptoms and signs that he had established in his patients. He wrote a book on the blood supply and anatomy of the brain. With Ion Niculescu he published an imposing treatise on the anatomy and blood supply of the midbrain and interbrain.

A most impressive teacher and clinician, Foix was almost as much at home with general medicine as he was with neurology. He was an accomplished poet, but even a better lyricist.

He died on 22 March 1927, aged 45.
