Natalia Zylberlast-Zand (born. 1883 or 27 March 1884 in Warsaw - died 23 or 24 September 1942 ) was a Polish Jewish neurologist.[1]

She was the daughter of David and Emilia née Batawia. Zand conducted research and was a regular contributor to French medical journals. She worked closely with Edward Flatau, considered the founder of modern neurology. In 1930, she published her book Les plexus choroïdes: Anatomie, physiologie, pathologie on the choroid plexus.[2] Before World War II she worked at the Jewish Hospital in Czyste in Warsaw.

During the war she was imprisoned in the Warsaw ghetto, where she continued to work as a doctor. On the night of 23 to 24 September 1942, she was deported to Pawiak prison, where she was probably executed.[3]
