Charles Travis Drennen Jr (born July 2, 1864 in Blount County; died April 26, 1932) was a physician and noted expert on syphilis.

Drennen was the son of Charles and Elizabeth Wilson Drennen of Arkadelphia. He lost an arm in an accident at the age of 16, and began studying medicine with his father the following year.

Drennen pursued his studies at the Louisville Medical College, Ohio Medical College, and the Rush Medical College in Chicago, Illinois, where he graduated in 1885. He practiced with his father and brother Daniel in Birmingham for the next several years, taking a year off to pursue general studies in New York.

In 1894 Drennen moved to Hot Springs, Arkansas and built up a sizable practice there while developing a specialty in syphilology. He contributed to several journals in the United States and abroad and delivered lectures to numerous medical societies.

Drennen died in 1932 and is buried at Greenwood Cemetery in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
