  • Edward Alfred Cockayne (1880 Sheffield – 1956) was an English physician specializing in pediatrics. He spent most of his medical career at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children in London. Cockayne was particularly interested in endocrinology, and rare, genetic diseases of children. In 1946 he recognized a disease that would be named after him, called Cockayne's syndrome. This is a rare multisystem disorder characterized by dwarfism, pigmentary retinopathy, impaired nervous system development, and facial abnormalities. This disease has since been divided into three subtypes: * Cockayne syndrome I, or Classic Cockayne Syndrome: in which facial and somatic abnormalities develop during childhood. Due to progressive neurological degeneration, death occurs in the second or third decade. * Cockayne syndrome II, or Severe Cockayne Syndrome: in which facial and somatic abnormalities are present at birth. Death usually results by the age of seven. * Cockayne syndrome III: milder than Cockayne I & II, and its onset happens later than the other two types. In 1933 he published the "Inherited Abnormalities of the Skin and its Appendages". This was the first book that dealt exclusively with genodermatoses (inherited skin disorders). Besides his medical work, Cockayne was an entomologist. He amassed a large collection of butterflies and moths, which in 1947 was donated to the Walter Rothschild Zoological Museum at Tring, Hertfordshire. In 1943 he became president of the Royal Entomological Society of London. (en)
  • Edward Alfred Cockayne (Sheffield, 1880 — 1956) foi um médico inglês especializado em pediatria. Ele passou a maior parte de sua carreira médica no Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children, em Londres. Cockayne estava particularmente interessado em endocrinologia e doenças genéticas raras, das crianças. Em 1946, ele reconheceu uma doença que seria nomeado após ele, chamado de síndrome de Cockayne. Esta é uma doença multissistêmica rara caracterizada por nanismo, pigmentar retinopatia, deficiente sistema nervoso, desenvolvimento e anomalias faciais. Esta doença já foi dividido em três subtipos: * Cockayne I, ou Classic Síndrome de Cockayne: em que anormalidades faciais e somáticos se desenvolvem durante a infância. Devido à degeneração neurológica progressiva, a morte ocorre na segunda ou terceira década. * Cockayne II, ou Síndrome de Cockayne grave: em que anormalidades faciais e somáticos estão presentes ao nascimento. A morte geralmente acontece por sete anos de idade. * Cockayne III: mais suave do que Cockayne I & II, e seu início ocorre mais tarde do que os outros dois tipos. Em 1933 ele publicou sua obra "Anormalidades hereditárias da pele e seus anexos". Este foi o primeiro livro que tratava exclusivamente com genodermatoses (doenças hereditárias de pele). Além de seu trabalho médico, Cockayne foi um entomologista, que acumulou uma grande coleção de borboletas e mariposas. Esta, em 1947 foi doada ao Museu Zoológico Walter Rothschild, em Tring, Hertfordshire. Em 1943 ele tornou-se presidente da Royal Society of Entomology. (pt)
