Abstract

INTRODUCTION: During the last quarter of the XIX century, Paris, France, particularly the Salpêtrière Hospital was the most important centre of reference of Clinical Neurology in the world. The group based on the Salpêtrière Hospital, led by Professor Charcot, who was arguably the most celebrated neurologist in Europe. OBJECTIVE: In this historical review, we present and locate the addresses of the houses of these famous Parisian neurologists from the late XIX century. DISCUSSION: At that time, Charcot and the triumvirate of his most famous pupils, Pierre Marie, Joseph Babinski and Gilles de la Tourette, lived in different streets of Paris, predominantly in a small cluster in the districts known as 7éme and 8émearrondissements (7th and 8th neighbourhoods). Professor Charcot lived in different streets and arrondissements of Paris, including the Rue du Faubourg Poissonnière, Paris IX; Cité de Trévise, Paris IX; Avenue du Coq, Paris IX; l'Hôtel de Chimay, Quai Malaquais Paris; and finally his most famous address at the Boulevard Saint-Germain, 217 (previously l'Hôtel de Varangeville), in the Faubourg Saint-Germain, Paris VII. (1884). CONCLUSION: The best urban organization in Paris provided an interaction between Charcot and other privileged minds of his day. We were remembering and visiting, as a "Flaneur Neurologique in Paris", the addresses of the houses of these famous and outstanding Parisian neurologists from the late XIX century.
