Survived by his wife, Dr. Eva Andermann, 3 children and 6 grandchildren. “For over 60 years, Dr. Andermann showed a remarkable ability to identify rare neurological syndromes and assemble multidisciplinary teams of researchers to better understand these unusual presentations and to provide patients and families with hope for treatment. The results of his inquiries have been published in 9 books and over 500 scientific papers. The Andermanns were also credited with having described a rare genetically-inherited neurological condition associated with agenesis of the corpus callosum and peripheral neuropathy that is now known as Andermann syndrome. Dr. Andermann was a generous and enthusiastic teacher, providing training and inspiration to generations of future epilepsy experts from all over the world.”
