French urologist and gynecologist who specialized in genitourinary disorders. In 1913 he described a procedure for the closure of a vesicovaginal fistula, an abnormal passageway between the bladder and the vagina. That operation, today called the "Dittel-Forgue-Legueu operation", is also named after Drs. Leopold von Dittel (1815–1898) and Émile Forgue (1860–1943).
A few surgical instruments bear Legueu's name, such as the "Legueu bladder retractor" and the "Legueu bladder spatula".
Legueu died in his home from carbon monoxide poisoning on 2 October 1939, aged 76.
