Albert Touraine (11 November 1883 – 3 May 1961)[1] was a French dermatologist.[2]

He studied medicine at the University of Paris as a pupil of Eugène Apert and Émile Achard.[2] In 1912 he received his doctorate with the thesis Les anticorps syphilitiques : essais de séro-agglutination de la syphilis.[3] In 1932 he was named senior physician at the Hôpital Saint-Louis.[2]

Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (or "Christ-Siemens-Touraine syndrome") is named for him. Touraine-Solente-Gole syndrome is also named for him.[4][5]

For eighteen years he was editor of the journal Annales de dermatologie et de syphiligraphie.[2] In 1945 he was elected as a member of the Académie de médecine.[6]
