Charles Estienne (1504-1564) was an early exponent of the science of anatomy in France.
Éstienne appears to have been the first to detect valves in the orifice of the hepatic veins. He was ignorant, however, of the researches of the Italian anatomists; and his description of the brain is inferior to that given sixty years before by Alessandro Achillini. His comparison of the cerebral cavities to the human ear has persuaded F. Portal that he knew the inferior cornua, the hippocampus and its prolongations; but this is no reason for giving him that honour to the detriment of the reputation of Achillini, to whom, so far as historical testimony goes, the first knowledge of this fact is due.The researches of Éstienne into the structure of the nervous system are, however, neither useless nor inglorious; and the circumstance of demonstrating a canal through the entire length of the spinal cord, which had neither been suspected by contemporaries nor noticed by successors till Jean-Baptiste de Sénac (1693-1770) made it known, is sufficient to place him high in the rank of anatomical discoverers.
His principal works are:
Praedium Rusticum (1554), a collection of tracts which he had compiled from ancient writers on various branches of agriculture, and which continued to be a favorite book down to the end of the 17th century
Dictionarium historicum ad poeticum (1553), the first French encyclopedia
Thesaurus Ciceronianus (1557)
De dissectione partium corporis humani libri tres, with well-drawn woodcuts (1545)
