French pediatrician and gynecologist remembered for his systematic research of neonatal jaundice. In 1847 he published a major work on the disease called De l'ictère de nouveau-nés.

In 1838 he received his licence ès lettres in Rouen, afterwards obtaining a degree in science in Paris (1841), where he later studied medicine. From 1844 to 1848 he worked as a hospital intern in Paris, followed by many years as a hospital physician. In 1892 he became an officer of the Légion d'Honneur, and in 1896 was appointed president of the Académie Nationale de Médecine.
