Carl Toldt (May 3, 1840 – November 13, 1920) was an Austrian anatomist who was a native of Bruneck, Tyrol.

In 1864 he earned his medical doctorate in Vienna, and was later a professor of anatomy in Prague and Vienna. He was the author of the popular "Anatomischer Atlas für Studirende und Ärzte" ("An atlas of human anatomy for students and physicians"), a work that was later translated into English.

His name is lent to the following four anatomical eponyms:

  • Toldt's fascia: Continuation of Treitz's fascia behind the body of the pancreas.
  • "Toldt's fascia flap": A recent technique for repairing large diaphragmatic hernias.
  • "Toldt's membrane": The anterior layer of the renal fascia.
  • "White line of Toldt": Lateral reflection of posterior parietal peritoneum of abdomen over the mesentery of the ascending and descending colon.
  • In 1932 Karl-Toldt-Weg in Vienna's District 14 (Penzing) was named in his honor.
