On the name of Harada's disease

Prof. Shinobu Ishihara, famous for his color blind charts, wrote in 1937 [3]since Harada wrote on this condition in 1926, there had been no mention of "Harada's" disease. It appeared very abruptly in 1929 by Dr. Takahashi of Kyoto University. Since then, this name had become in use naturally, and I have no objection to this use.
