John Langdon Down was a progressive liberal Victorian doctor who first described the constellation of features that we now know as ‘Down syndrome’ in 1862. In 1959, almost 100 years after Down published this description, Jerome Lejeune discovered that people with Down syndrome have an extra copy of chromosome number 21. Instead of the usual 46 chromosomes, they have 47.
