Eugen von Bamberger (5 September 1858 - October 1921) was an Austrian internist born in Würzburg, Germany. He was the son of pathologist Heinrich von Bamberger (1822-1888).

He studied medicine at the Universities of Vienna and Würzburg, receiving his doctorate in 1882. Afterwards he worked as an assistant to Hermann Nothnagel (1841-1905) at the Allgemeines Krankenhaus in Vienna. From 1891, he was a director of internal medicine at the Rudolfsspital.

In 1889, he provided a detailed description of a condition that has become known as hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathy. During the following year, French neurologist Pierre Marie (1853-1940) was able to differentiate the syndrome from acromegaly. The term "Bamberger-Marie disease" is sometimes used for hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathy.
