Note
Most of the definitions of diseases in the glossary that follows are from medical dictionaries or medical texts compiled at different points in the nineteenth century. While I have tried to submit the best-possible interpretation of these terms, there are certainly other interpretations which may be valid. I don't guarantee that all definitions are 100% correct.
