Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 354076044X, Hardcover)

This book comes a decade after the publication of "The Man behind the Syndrome" and continues the presentation of people who have given their names to disorders or syndromes which are thought to have a significant genetic or chromosomal component. Each entry contains a brief review of the evolution of the nomenclature, together with key historical references. The first section contains portraits, biographical data, accounts of the evolution of the nomenclature and relevant references for 100 eponymous persons who are deceased or retired. The second section contains brief biographical sketches of further physicians, the majority of whom are still active in their careers. Anyone interested in clinical, medical and human genetics and the history of medicine and its personalities will derive information and enjoyment from The Person behind the Syndrome.
