Eponyms are a long-standing tradition in medicine. Eponyms usually involve honoring a prominent physician scientist who played a major role in the identification of the disease. Under the right circumstances, a disease becomes well known through the name of this individual. There are no rules on eponym development. It may take an extraordinary period of time, be different in different languages and cultures, and evolve as more is known about the physician or the disease.
It is often easier to remember a disease by its eponym than by the more scientific pathologic description; for example, which name is better known, Hodgkin’s disease or any of its five types, to wit, nodular sclerosing, mixed cellularity, lymphocyte depleted, lymphocyte rich, and nodular lymphocyte-predominant?
The naming process usually begins when popular attention is drawn to an entity, not necessarily for the first time. In fact, the physician scientist whose name becomes the eponym is often distinguishable from other parallel observers for reasons other than being first. It may be the individual’s reputation, standing, accuracy, details contained in the report or publication, or a fortuitous rediscovery often decades later by someone who then associates the disease with one or more of the earlier physician scientists. Sometimes luck plays a major role. There are no rules on eponym development. It may take an extraordinary period of time, be different in different languages and cultures, and evolve as more is known about the physician or the disease.
How many medical eponyms are there? There are medical eponyms for physical signs, tendons, reflexes, palsies, cysts, choreas, aneurisms, contractures, and many others. Some have estimated more than 8,000 (Citation1). There are single name eponyms and multiple individual eponyms. There are possessive and non-possessive forms. When there are multiple names to the eponym, it is often interesting to assess how the order was adopted. It may be individual prestige, departmental seniority and, no doubt, could involve some bullying. Or it may be as simple as drawing straws or the famous Watson–Crick coin flip – won by Watson.
