Sir James Paget (1814-1899) was a British surgeon and pathologist who is best remembered for Paget's disease (referring to bone). His famous works included Lectures on Tumours (1851) and Lectures on Surgical Pathology (1853).

The reality is that there were three diseases named after him - Paget's disease of bone, Paget's disease of the nipple and Paget's disease of the penis.

Bone, nipple and penis .... quite a few medical students come to the (somewhat mistaken but funny) conclusion that this guy was a pervert and that the bone disease was a lucky guess.
