We wished to recall the Francois Moutier's surprising biography, a master of French aphasiology. After his thesis's defense, Pierre Marie, his master, demanded he forgot neurology and he became a gastro-enterologist. In this new specialty he was a famous innovator. We analysed Moutier's thesis about Broca aphasia, a very important contribution, with many figures, to history of language pathology.
