 Synonyms & Historicals
/epidemiology .
/endemics .
/epidemics .
/frequency .
/incidence .
/morbidity .
/occurrence .
/outbreaks .
/prevalence .
/surveillance .
Used with human and veterinary diseases for the distribution of disease, factors which cause disease, and the attributes of disease in defined populations; includes incidence, frequency, prevalence, endemic and epidemic outbreaks; also surveys and estimates of morbidity in geographic areas and in specified populations. Used also with geographical headings for the location of epidemiologic aspects of a disease. Excludes mortality for which "mortality" is used. .
Disease .
Diseases .
Illness .
Disease Concept Evolution .
A definite pathologic process with a characteristic set of signs and symptoms. It may affect the whole body or any of its parts, and its etiology, pathology, and prognosis may be known or unknown. .
Disease Progression .
Disease Exacerbation .
Disease Progressions .
Progression, Disease .
Progressions, Disease .
The worsening of a disease over time. This concept is most often used for chronic and incurable diseases where the stage of the disease is an important determinant of therapy and prognosis. .
Epidemiology .
Field of medicine concerned with the determination of causes, incidence, and characteristic behavior of disease outbreaks affecting human populations. It includes the interrelationships of host, agent, and environment as related to the distribution and control of disease. .
/diet therapy .
/dietary management .
/nutritional management .
Used with disease headings for dietary and nutritional management of the disease. The concept does not include vitamin or mineral supplements, for which "drug therapy" may be used. .
Endemic Diseases .
Disease, Endemic .
Diseases, Endemic .
Endemic Disease .
The constant presence of diseases or infectious agents within a given geographic area or population group. It may also refer to the usual prevalence of a given disease with such area or group. It includes holoendemic and hyperendemic diseases. A holoendemic disease is one for which a high prevalent level of infection begins early in life and affects most of the child population, leading to a state of equilibrium such that the adult population shows evidence of the disease much less commonly than do children (malaria in many communities is a holoendemic disease). A hyperendemic disease is one that is constantly present at a high incidence and/or prevalence rate and affects all groups equally. (Last, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 3d ed, p53, 78, 80) .
/physiopathology .
/dysfunction .
/pathophysiology .
/functional pathology .
/pathologic physiology .
Used with organs and diseases for disordered function in disease states. .

Andersen Disease .
Brancher Deficiency .
Glycogenosis 4 .
An autosomal recessive metabolic disorder due to a deficiency in expression of glycogen branching enzyme 1 (alpha-1,4-glucan-6-alpha-glucosyltransferase), resulting in an accumulation of abnormal GLYCOGEN with long outer branches. Clinical features are MUSCLE HYPOTONIA and CIRRHOSIS. Death from liver disease usually occurs before age 2. .
