I read about charcot and who knows the conditions, name of diseases starting with charcot?

Charcot Leyden crystals - Eosinophils in sputum of patients with allergic diseases.

Then charcot joint too.. In diabetes, syphilis. Neuropathic joints, basically.

Charcot triad is of which condition?

One is of infection of gallbladder - Jaundice, fever, right hypochondriac region pain.
