     Medical terms either take a descriptive function or honor those who first diagnosed a disease. Eponyms don't provide any useful information about a condition, but simply link it to a particular person's research. They are also sometimes used to describe body parts. Parkinson's disease is more well-known than paralysis agitans, even though they are the same condition. Descriptive terms are sometimes replaced by eponyms to avoid a particular stigma, but the medical trend is away from eponyms.
