In the spirit of fairness, the syndrome was named for the first three scientists on their published paper, but here is a complete list of those who worked to identify this autosomal recessive series of disorders: Albert E. Chudley, Bhoday Rozdilsky, C. Stuart Houston, Lawrence E. Becker, and Joan H. Knoll. You can read their fascinating paper here.

It’s interesting to note that, to date, there have been no new cases of the syndrome. But I’m sure research is continuing because of the severe affects, including skeletal abnormalities, tissue abnormalities, and brain-function abnormalities.
