Matthew Baillie (born 27 October 1761, Shots Manse, Lanarkshire, Scot. died 23 September 1823, Duntisbourne, Gloucestershire, England) was a Scottish physician and pathologist.



The brother of poetess Joanna Baillie, he was a pupil of his anatomist John Hunter, his uncle; and his father-in-law, Dr. Thomas Denman, a preeminent obstetrician in London at the turn of the nineteenth century, whose textbook on childbirth had been first published in 1788. Baillie was educated at the Old Grammar School of Hamilton (renamed the Hamilton Academy in 1848), the University of Glasgow, and obtained his MD from the University of Oxford in 1789, having been named Snell Exhibitioner in 1779. He became Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in 1790, and specialised in morbid anatomy.

Baillie died of tuberculosis in 1823 at the age of 62. He is buried in Duntisbourne, Gloucestershire.


His 1793 book, The Morbid Anatomy of Some of the Most Important Parts of the Human Body, is considered the first systematic study of pathology, and the first publication in English on pathology as a separate subject.[1] He is credited with first identifying transposition of the great vessels (TGV) and situs inversus.
