The older traditional Human Anatomical Textbooks included numerous
anatomical eponyms. This was a desire to perpetuate the memory of
original investigators by associating their names with the
anatomical structures that they had discovered. The current trends
in most medical school curricula have reduced the subject matter in
Human Anatomy to its barest essentials with the elimination of all
eponyms. Both students and teachers are now deprived of learning
the history associated with many of the former great anatomists.
The objective of this book is therefore to introduce eponyms with
pictures or plates depicting the investigator for which the
anatomical structure is named. Only the more common eponyms
associated with the various anatomical systems of the human body
