Frank W. Crowe
Frank Wilkinson Crowe (July 2, 1919 – April 29, 1987) was an American physician, who practiced Dermatology in Boise, Idaho and was a world-renowned authority for the Crowe sign or Crowe's sign in neurofibromatosis.
In 1956 Crowe et al. recognised the autosomal dominant heredity of neurofibromatosis and the use of 6 or more café au lait spots to diagnose the condition. In 1964 Crowe published work on the use of axillary freckling in its diagnosis, which is now referred to as the Crowe sign.
