Claude François Lallemand

Claude François Lallemand (26 January 1790 in Metz, France – 25 August 1854 in Marseille, France) was a French physician.

Circumcision promotion

In 1836, Lallemand circumcised a patient to cure him from nocturnal seminal emissions (i.e. wet dreams). So he recommended circumcision as a treatment for spermatorrhea (excessive, involuntary ejaculation), which was then believed to be a disease. Lallemand influenced later English physicians such as William Acton.[1]
