Henri Legrand du Saulle (April 16, 1830 - May 6, 1886) was a French psychiatrist who was a native of Dijon. In 1856 he earned his medical doctorate from the University of Paris, and was an assistant to Bénédict Morel (1809-1873) at Saint-Yon, and practiced psychiatry under Louis-Florentin Calmeil (1798-1895) at the Charenton Asylum. He also worked at Charles Lasègue's psychiatric emergency ward at the Prefecture of Police. Later he was associated with research done at the Bicêtre (1867) and Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospitals.

Henri du Saulle is remembered for his studies on personality disorders, particularly pioneer work involving phobias and obsessive-compulsive disorders. He also did extensive work in forensic psychiatry, and was concerned with its legal implications as it applied to mental disease.
