Dear Mr.John and Dr.Jagesh,
Thank you so much for reading through my blog.I am more than certain that there must be many more such occurrences and many other “unsung” heroes.I only hope this post will stimulate readers to come forward with more such examples. It may be one small way in which we, in the medical fraternity can pay our tributes to individuals who are genuinely responsible for all the collective knowledge in Medical science, that we learn, practice and teach today.
Dear Dr. Kamath,
This article is not only fascinating from a historical standpoint but in certain instances (such as Morton’s neuralgia)may well help clarify a medical confusion for some practitioners. Very interesting learning how these wrongly attributed terms originated!
