Francois Henri Hallopeau (1842-1919) completed his medical education in Paris in 1871. After practicing neurology for several years he turned to dermatology. He contributed to the description of various diseases, from cutaneous tuberculosis to the compulsive pulling out of hair (trichotillomania) which he described in 1889. He was a cofounder of the French Society of Dermatology and Syphilology. He practiced at l’Hôpital Saint Louis in Paris from 1884 until his retirement in 1907, but continued to be a consultant for the rest of his life.
