Eponyms brings a short description of more than 1'700 common and obscure medical eponyms (e.g., Rovsing's sign, Virchow's node) to your Mac. A perfect tool to quickly look up the meaning of any eponym.

It uses the beautiful eponym database of Andrew J. Yee ( who still maintains the database, updates can be installed right from within Eponyms.

• More than 1'700 eponyms, updates can be downloaded right from within the App
• Full text search
• 28 categories
• Customizable "starred" list to keep track of the eponyms you tend to forget
• List of recently accessed eponyms
• Learn mode
• Print the currently active list of eponyms

Learn mode randomly displays eponyms from the category you're currently visiting. This way you can either learn eponyms from a given category, only the ones that you've starred, the ones matching a given search term or just all of them.

What's New in Version 1.1

• You can now print eponyms
• Made the bigger/smaller buttons work

Love this simple medical app! Answers those questions we all have….you know, "I just can't think of it/It's on the tip of my tongue"…
This conveniently saves me a few minutes by providing a thorough definition/concise answer, making it unnecessary to look up my question
in the index of some 7 lb medical text. Thank you!!


It is wery nice app, helpfull, but it misses some of diseases, if it would be possible to interact with creators to add those diseases would be grate, I give 5 stars to it
