The Anatomical terminology is used internationally as a reference of the specific terms of morphology, in which no eponyms are used, because they make no reference to any relevant anatomical or functional detail, but it does bring to mind the names of people, making the learning and communication more difficult. The aim of this work was to study the prevalence of eponyms used during the 18th Congress of International Federation of Associations of Anatomists, held in Beijing in 2014. -China-: five oral presentations were analyzed randomly and the three hundred formal presentations in the poster modality during the congress, seeking the use of eponyms. Although there was a very low percentage of use of eponyms during 18th Congress of International Federation of Associations of Anatomists, is not justified that the scientific committee of the event has accepted such works. Perhaps this could be seen as an obstacle to the role of the Federal International Committee on Anatomical Terminology.
