Diseases, Illnesses & Ailments Starting from Letter M

  1. Morquio disease, type B
    Also referred to as mucopolysaccharidosis IV or Morquio, the disease is known to be an autosomal recessive mucopolysaccharide disease that is more often than not inherited. It is also considered a relatively unusual case of dwarfism with serious consequences. This happens when the body cannot process certain types of mucopplysaccharides, they just build up or are eliminated causing a range of symptoms. The type A form is a deficiency of the enzyme N-acetylgalactosamine-6-sulfate sulfatase. [read more]

  2. Morquio syndrome
    Referred to as mucopolysaccharidosis IV or Morquio, the disorder is known to be an autosomal recessive mucopolysaccharide disease that is usually inherited. It is also considered a relatively rare case of dwarfism with serious consequences. This happens when the body cannot process certain types of mucopplysaccharides, then they just build up or are eliminated causing a range of symptoms. The type A form is a deficiency of the enzyme N-acetylgalactosamine-6-sulfate sulfatase. [read more]

  3. Morton's Neuroma
    Morton's Neuroma, also called the plantar neuoma or the intermetatarsak neuroma, is a noncancerous growth of the nerve tissue in the foot, usually between the third and the fourth toes. It is not necessarily considered as a tumor but a mere thickening of the tissue around the digital nerves leading to the toes. [read more]

  4. Morvan Disease
    Morvan disease is a rare autoimmune disorder characterized by muscle abnormalities, cramping, weakness, delirium and insomnia. There are only about 14 recorded cases of the disease throughout medical history. [read more]

  5. Mother To Baby Infections
    Mother-to-baby infections are diseases that are transmitted when a mother's amniotic membranes rupture. In the stage where her ?water bag breaks?, microbes such as viruses and bacteria can enter the womb. Other harmful microbes can also enter the womb during labor, which can affect the baby's growth and overall health. Some diseases meanwhile can be passed from skin contact. The diseases that are considered mother-to-baby-infections are E. coli infection and staphylococcus aureus infections. There are also diseases that come from body fluids. There are some illnesses carried by a woman during pregnancy, and they can be passed on to the baby through body fluids. These diseases include gonorrhea, HIV, herpes virus infection, and hepatitis B and C. [read more]

  6. Motion Sickness
    Motion sickness (also known as car sickness, sea sickness, air sickness) occurs when two "motion messages" to the brain conflict. One "motion message" comes from the inner ear that controls balance and another "motion message" is from the eyes. During this changes in position caused by travel, these two "motion messages" conflict thereby causing motion sickness. [read more]

  7. Motor neurone disease
    MND or motor neurone diseases are a group of progressive neurological disorders that destroy the cells that control voluntary muscle activity such as speaking, walking, breathing, and swallowing. Those cells are called motor neurons. The disease has several forms including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS, primary lateral sclerosis (PLS), progressive muscular atrophy (PMA), and bulbar. Spinal muscular atrophy is sometimes considered a form of MND. [read more]

  8. Motor sensory neuropathy type 1 cutis congenital
    Known as Hereditary Motor and Sensory Neuropathy (HMSN) or Peroneal Muscular Atrophy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is characterized by loss of muscle tissue and touch sensation, primarily in the feet and legs but also in the hands and arms in the advanced stages of disease. The disease is presently incurable and is one of the most common inherited neurological disorders, with 37 in 100,000 affected. [read more]

  9. Mounier-Kuhn syndrome
    Mounier-Kuhn's syndrome, also called tracheobronchomegaly is a rare lung disorder characterized by marked widening or dilation of the trachea and sometimes the larger bronchial tubes. When this happens the ability to clear mucus from the lungs is impaired. [read more]

  10. Mount reback syndrome
    Mount-Reback syndrome or Mount' syndrome was named after the doctors who classified it namely Lester Adrian Mount and S. Reback. The disease is a form of Huntington's Chorea, a rare hereditary disease affecting various muscular and nervous systems in the body. Mount's syndrome passes to roughly 50% of the offspring and shares many of the same symptoms of Chorea. Chorea however is more severe and the shared symptoms may be caused by different factors. Persons with the disease experience attacks lasting for a few minutes to several hours when they are awake. Said attacks are most severe at an early or young ages and the symptom tend to lessen as the person grows. The reason for this is unknown. [read more]

  11. Mouth Cancer
    Mouth Cancer or Oral and throat cancers are pale lumps inside the mouth which does not in itself heal. [read more]

  12. Mouth Ulcer
    Mouth ulcer is a condition characterized by the appearance of an open sore inside the oral cavity. It is also alternatively known as oral ulcer. [read more]

  13. Moyamoya disease
    In most parts of the world, except Japan, Moyamoya is considered an extremely rare disease. Characterized by progressive intracranial vascular stenoses of the circle of Willis, the condition may result to ischemic events as well as hemorrhagic events. It may also lead to irreversible blockage of the carotid arteries to the brain as they enter into the skull. [read more]

  14. MPO deficiency
    Myeloperoxidse deficiency or MPO is a common genetic disorder featuring deficiency, in either quantity or function of the enzyme myeloperxidase. Said enzyme can be found in certain phagocytic immune cells, particularly polymorphonuclear leukocytes. [read more]

  15. MRKH
    Also called Mullerian agenesis, MRKH is the condition in a female where the mullerian ducts fail to develop and a uterus will not be present. MRKH stands for Mayer-Rokitansky-K?ster-Hauser Syndrome, derived from the names Augsut Franz Joseph Karl Mayer, Carl Freiherr von Rokitansky, Herman K?ster, and G.A. Hauser. [read more]

  16. Muckle-wells syndrome
    First described in 1962 by Thomas James Muckle and Michael Vernon Wells, Muckle-Wells syndrome is also known as Urticaria-deafness-amyloidosis (UDA). It is a rare autosomal disease, which causes sensorineural deafness, recurrent hives, and can lead to amyloidosis. MWS happens when a mutation in the CIAS1 gene leads to increased activity of the cryopyrin protein. The disorder is closely related to two other syndromes, familial cold urticaria and neonatal onset multisystem inflammatory disease. [read more]

  17. Mucocele, Oral
    A harmless, fluid-containing (cyst-like) swelling of the mouth or lip lining (mucosa) due to mucus from the small salivary glands of the mouth leaking into the soft tissue, usually from injury (trauma) or blockage of the gland is called oral mucocele. [read more]

  18. Mucocutaneous Lymph Node Syndrome
    Mucocutaneous Lymph Node Syndrome otherwise known as the Kawasaki disease is a medical condition where there is an inflammation of the walls of the arteries throughout the body which may include the coronary arteries affecting the lymph nodes, skin and mucous membrane inside the throa, nose and mouth of the person. [read more]

  19. Mucopolysaccharidosis
    A group of autosomal recessive metabolic disorders, Mucopolysaccharidosis is caused to the absence or malfunctioning of lyosomal enzymes. Said enzymes are needed to break down the molecules called glycosaminoglycans. [read more]

  20. Mucopolysaccharidosis type 3
    Mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) type III or Sanfilippo syndrome can result from the deficiency of one of four enzymes that are necessary to degrade heparan sulfate. MPS III also has 3 subgroups namely A, B, C, and D. [read more]
