  1. Finger Fracture
    Finger fracture, broken wrist, or broken hand is a condition that needs immediate medical attention since it can affect one's ability to perform everyday activities. [read more]

  2. Fish Tank Granuloma
    Fish tank granuloma is an infectious skin disease caused by the Mycobacterium marinum. In this disease, lesions grow on the skin and result to infections as well as tearing of the skin. The bacteria are commonly found in waters, particularly in swimming pools, and people exposed to salt or fresh water are more susceptible to the disease. Fish tank granuloma can be treated with antibiotics such as doxycyclin, and rifampin. [read more]

  3. Fissured tongue
    Fissured tongue characterized as a benign medical condition that often referred to as plicated or scrotal tongue. It is distinguished as a tongue with deep or shallow furrows or grooves causing a rather wrinkled appearance of the tongue. This condition may be congenital and may gradually increase with age.

  6. Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome
    Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome is characterized by pain that is typically felt on the right upper quadrant that is a result of an ascending infection of the pelvis and inflammation of the diaphragm or liver capsule. This medical condition is typically associated with another disease called acute salpingitis and usually mimics typical abdominal emergencies. Since there are a number of possibilities that may be associated with the symptoms of this disease, proper diagnosis is required to rule out other possibilities. [read more]

  7. Fitzsimmons-Guilbert syndrome
    Fitzsimmons-Guilbert syndrome is considered as an extremely rare genetic disease that is characterized by a considerably slow progressive spastic paraplegia, along with skeletal anomalies of the feet and hand with brachydactyly type E. This also comes with cone-shaped epiphyses, sternal anomaly, abnormal metaphyseal–phalangeal pattern profile, mild intellectual deficit and dysarthria. To date, there are only three reported cases of this disease, two of which suffered from severe mental retardation. [read more]

  8. Flaky Scalp
    A flaky scalp is usually a result of dandruff, a chronic condition wherein the skin on the scalp flakes off in unusually large amounts. A flaky scalp may be due to fungal development on the skin, or excess secretion from the scalp's sebaceous glands. Flaky scalps can be treated with a medicated shampoo. [read more]

  9. Flatfeet
    Flatfeet or also known as Pes planovalgus, is a condition where the arch or instep of the foot collapses and comes in contact with the ground. This arch never develops in some individuals. [read more]

  10. Flatulence
    Flatulence or flatus is passing of intestinal gas which generally everyone passes gas at least 12 times or more. Flatus usually isn't serious, but sometimes unexpelled gas can cause intense, intermittent pain in the abdominal region. [read more]

  11. Flavimonas oryzihabitans
    Flavimonas oryzihabitans is considered to be a very uncommon bacterial infection that typically occurs in immunocompromised patients or those who are required to use catheters. Flavimonas oryzihabitans was previously named Pseudomonas oryzihabitans. Pseudomonas is a non-fermenting, ixidase-negative and gram negative bacillus which is normally found in sink drains, rice paddies and constantly damp environments. [read more]

  12. Flea Bites
    Flea bits are itchy spots that occur on the skin due to bites of parasitic insects called fleas. [read more]

  13. Flesh eating bacteria
    Flesh eating bacteria is a very rare but very serious bacterial infection medically known as necrotizing fasciitis. This type of infection typically starts in the body tissues that are just below the skin and gradually spreads along the different layers of body tissues such as fat and muscle. This is considered as a highly dangerous infection and is usually found on the legs, arms and abdominal wall, making it a very fatal medical condition. [read more]

  14. Floating Harbor Syndrome
    Floating-Harbor syndrome is a rare genetic disease that usually features a short stature among infants. Affected children suffer from delayed bone age, slow development of expressive language abilities, and a triangular shaped face. It is an autosomal dominant disorder that was first described in 1973. [read more]

  15. Floppy Valve Syndrome
    Floppy valve syndrome or also known as Mitral valve prolapse is characterized by the displacement of an abnormally thickened mitral valve leaflet into the left atrium during systole. MVP, in its nonclassis form, carries a low risk of complications. Severe cases of MVP though may include complications such as infective endocarditis, regurgitation and in rare circumstances, cardiac arrest that usually results to sudden death. The term for the disease was coined by J. Michael Criley in 1966. It gained acceptance over JB Barlow's ?billowing? of the mitral valve description. MVP has different subtypes namely classic, nonclassic, symmetric, asymmetric, flail or non-flail. The subtypes are based on the leaflet thickness, convacity and type of connection to the mitral annulus. [read more]

  16. Flourosis
    Flourosis is actually not a medical disorder, not more of a cosmetic condition. Quite often, the condition is so mild, only professional dentists are able to detect it. This is largely brought about by the excessive fluoride in the body that can become a disruptive agent in enamel formation of the teeth. This can cause some minor discoloration or teeth surface irregularities. [read more]
