In order to get an impression on the opinion of the use of neurological eponyms we sent questionnaires on 205 eponyms to 850 members of the Netherlands Association for Neurology.
The responses by 256 (30%) were analyzed.
A positive correlation was found between age and the knowledge of eponyms.
The best known eponyms belong to category II (tests and manoeuvres).
Surprisingly, many of the responding colleagues did not prefer descriptive terms to eponyms : 57% of the eponyms were preferred by more than 50% of the respondents. 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
