I appreciate Dr. Cheng’s comments,1 and I agree with his point that, historically speaking, the first description of the symptomatology of Adamantiades-Behçet disease was reported by Hippocrates in the fifth century BC. Should the complete eponym for the disease be Hippocrates-Adamantiades-Behçet disease? The more carefully we read the Hippocratic Corpus, the more often we discover the genius of Hippocrates. Symptoms of many diseases were first reported by Hippocrates. He not only carefully observed the clinical features of diseases, but he thoughtfully interpreted their pathologic and physiologic aspects, and treated diseases by natural means. He developed medicine as a science. Therefore, to be historically correct, probably many of the eponyms of diseases should be renamed and called Hippocrates-… disease or syndrome. However, eponyms for diseases mostly have been attributed to contemporary scientists. Hippocrates has an outstanding position in medicine, but he is out of the competition for eponyms. His outstanding position is not only indicated by the importance of the Hippocratic Oath in the medical ethics of physicians all around the world, but Hippocrates is, without any contradiction, the father of medicine.
