Jean-Louis-Marc Alibert (1768–1837) was a French dermatologist and one of the great pioneers. In 1802 he began his career at the Hôtel-Dieu in Paris, where he administered to patients with leprosy, syphilis, and other skin disorders. However, during this period in time, dermatology was unknown as a specific branch of medicine. Alibert believed that when diagnosing skin disorders, that several criteria needed to be used. He devised a system of classifying skin diseases, similar to the method Antoine Laurent de Jussieu used in botany. Alibert first classified dermatological disorders according to outer appearance, then he divided them into what he called families, generations and species. This system of classification was represented pictorially as the "Tree of Dermatoses".
Alibert was a prodiguous writer; his best known work being the illustrated Descriptions des maladies de la peau. Also a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma known as Mycosis Fungoides was formerly referred to as Alibert-Bazin syndrome, and another term for "barber's itch" was once referred to asAlibert's mentagra.

As a medical student in Paris, he studied with renowned physicians that included Pierre-Joseph Desault (1744–1795), Jean-Nicolas Corvisart (1755-1821), Xavier Bichat (1771–1802) and Philippe Pinel (1745–1826). In 1801 he was appointed médecin adjoint to the Hôpital Saint-Louis (then known as the Hospice du Nord), where he administered to patients with skin disorders, syphilis and leprosy. Following the Restoration of the French monarchy, Alibert became a personal physician to Louis XVIII. Later he was a personal physician to Charles X, and was awarded with the title of "baron". Being that there was no chair of dermatology in Paris, Alibert was appointed professor of materia medica and therapeutics in 1823.

The ‘Nouveaux élémens’ is an important work of his, dealing with skin diseases of course, but also covering:

• Therapies
• Medical Innovations.
• Medicine — Formulae, receipts, prescriptions.
• Materia Medica.
• Therapeutics.
• Mineral waters.
