François Henri Hallopeau


French dermatologist who coined the medical term "trichotillomania" in 1889. He also coined the word "antibiotique" in 1871 to describe a substance opposed to the development of life. Selman Waksman would later be credited with coining the word "antibiotic" to describe such compounds that were derived from other living organisms such as penicillin.

He died on 20 March 1919, aged 77, in Paris.
