More People Who Aren't the Same

I would like to clear up what I can only assume is a very common misconception.  Courvoisier's Sign (you know, an enlarged but non-tender gallbladder) is in no way related to the cognac (or even Busta Rhymes)!!  I know!  Mind-blowing, right?!

Ludwig Georg Courvoisier was a biliary surgeon from Switzerland while Emmanuel and Felix Courvoisier were a father and son from France who supposedly served their delicious cognac to one of the Napoleons.  Try to keep them straight in your head - you never know what will show up on test day.
