This article describes how Dr Ernest Goodpasture's 1919 study of influenza became the basis for his name being attached to pulmonary-renal syndromes by Stanton and Tange in 1958. Dr Goodpasture was an unwilling participant in this naming, and in retrospect, the patient he described who served as the prototypic case probably had a vasculitic syndrome. Finally, Dr Goodpasture's major contributions to virology are summarized.
