MedTerms Medical Dictionary

Connect to this Database

The Dictionary contains a considerable and constantly changing number of classical and contemporary medical terms. Some of the entries to these terms are longer than regular dictionary entries and are miniature medical essays. Entries in the Dictionary include not only the usual standard medical terms but also pertinent scientific items, abbreviations, acronyms, jargon, institutions, projects, symptoms, syndromes, eponyms, medical history -- all having to do with medicine and the biomedical sciences, particularly anything of value and of interest. The Dictionary was written entirely by physicians.
