Eponymous medical signs are those that are named after a person or persons, usually the physicians who first described them, as a tribute to the pioneers in the field who have significantly contributed toward the present understanding of the subject. They also help in providing an easy milieu for remembering the particulars of disease with their diagnostic significance including signs, tests, criteria, laws, or reflexes.
