Brouzet left a book on children, but concerning his life little can be found in the usual sources. He was born at Béziers early in the eighteenth century, was doubtless educated there and then studied medicine at Montpelier, where he was graduated about 1736. He lived for some time in Paris, possibly at Agde on the coast of Languedoc, for he described an epidemic in children that occurred there. He afterward resided in Fontainebleau where he was physician to the Royal Infirmary and the hospitals. This is learned from the title page of his book, and also the fact that he was a correspondent of l'Académie Royale des Sciences and a member of l'Académie des Sciences and Belles-Lettres of Béziers.

Besides his book on children, Brouzet wrote "Analyse des anciennes eaux minerales de Passy" and an account of an epidemic at Fontainebleau, which was printed in Le Mercure de France
