Quick: who’s the ‘Alstrom-Olson Syndrome’ named for?

Give up? Of course you do. Then check out Who Named It?, a would-be haven for medical eponyms. This biographical dictionary of sorts contains 7079 eponyms, and has plans to eventually describe a total of 15,000.

(FYI, the aforementioned syndrome is “autosomal recessive cone-rod dystrophy of the retina,” named for/by Carl-Henry Alström and Olof Olson)
