  1. Male Pseudohermaphroditism Due to 17-Beta-Hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase Deficiency
    17-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase deficiency-3 is a rare disorder of sexual development which affects the biosynthesis of testosterone which can produce male pseudohermaproditism (intersexuality) of genetically male infants and children .This autosomal recessive medical condition can bring about great effects in the primary and/or secondary sex attributes among male and female individuals.

  2. Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma
    Malignant fibrous histiocytoma is a type of malignant cancer that develops in fibrous support tissue or bone. The usual location of tumors is found in extremities; however it can possibly appear in any body part. It is the most common type of soft tissue cancer that appears in later adult life, usually between the ages of 50-70. [read more]

  3. Malignant Hyperthermia
    Malignant hyperthermia is a rare life-threatening condition. It is triggered by exposure to most drugs used in general anesthesia. Vulnerability to malignant hyperthermia is most of the time inherited as an autosomal dominant disorder. It is genetically associated with Central Core Disease, which usually presents malignant hyperthermia manifestations and myopathy, described as a muscle suffering disorder. [read more]

  4. Mallory-Weiss Syndrome
    Mallory-Weiss syndrome is a laceration in the lining of the gastro-esophageal junction (stomach-esophagus), usually due to severe coughing or vomiting. [read more]

  5. Malonic Aciduria
    Malonic aciduria is a rare genetic condition marked by a deficiency of the enzyme Malonyl-CoA decarboxylase bringing about impairment in the body's ability to convert fatty acids into energy, which can be used by muscles like muscles in the heart. Because of this occurrence, fatty acids tend to accumulate in the body since they are not metabolized. The deficiency in Malonyl-CoA decarboxylase interrupts the normal balance of fatty acid breakdown and formation. This condition is also known as Malonyl-CoA decarboxylase deficiency. [read more]

  6. Malonyl-CoA Decarboxylase Deficiency
    Malonyl-CoA decarboxylase deficiency also known as Malonic aciduria is a metabolic disorder disrupting the Malonyl-Coa decarboxylase from breaking down Malonyl-CoA enzyme into Acetyl-CoA and carbon dioxide. [read more]

  7. Malouf Syndrom
    Malouf syndrome is a very rare syndrome primarily characterized by a heart disease in addition to abnormal ovaries. This congenital disorder is also known as congestive cardiomyopathy-hypergonadotropic hypogonadism syndrome. Malouf syndrome is derived from the name of Jean Malouf, who is a famous sideshow performer during the 19th century; she was born in Montreal. [read more]

  8. Malta Fever
    Malta fever, also known as undulant fever or brucellosis, is a contagious disease that affects the central nervous system and can lead to painful joints as well as miscarriage. [read more]

  9. Malveolar Echinococcosis
    Malveolar echinococcosis is a rare medical condition that exhibits a tumor-like growth on the liver and can induce potential serious health complications. Red foxes have been identified to be the primary hosts of this parasite that can be passed on to human beings. Up until today, there have no definitive study with regard to this condition as it is known to be a very rare occurrence. [read more]

  10. Mammary Duct Ectasia
    Mammary duct ectasia happens when a milk duct beneath the nipple becomes dilated and filled with fluid. The milk duct can then become congested or clogged with a thick, sticky substance. [read more]

  11. Manic Depression, Bipolar
    Manic depression, bipolar covers a wide range of mood disorders. It is signified by the presence of one or more abnormally elevated mood episodes. This occurrence is clinically termed as mania, mostly associated with bipolar disorders. It is also referred as “manic-depressive disorder” but now changes into bipolar affective disorder, which involves episodes of alternating manic-depressive symptoms and good overly excited thoughts. There are 3 subdivisions of this disorder: bipolar I & II and cyclothymia depending on the type and gravity of the mood and thought episodes encounters. [read more]

  12. Mannosidosis
    Mannosidosis (alpha-mannosidosis) is a rare inherited metabolic disorder characterized by a deficiency of the alpha mannosidosase. This occurrence results in the accumulation of certain chemicals in the body leading later on to mental and physical deterioration. The enzyme alpha-mannosidosase aids in the breakdown of complex sugars derived from glycoprotein in the organelles that contain digestive enzymes (lysosomes). [read more]

  13. Mansonelliasis
    Mansonelliasis, also known as Mansonellosis is the condition of infection by the nematode or worm-like parasite known as Mansonella. Transmission commonly occurs through the bite of a midge. These worms live in the abdominal cavity [read more]

  14. Mantle Cell Lymphoma
    Mantle cell lymphoma is one of the rarer types of the non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. The lymphoma can spread to other parts of the body including the liver, bone marrow or spleen. This occurrence is prevalent to males rather than females, with the ratio of 4:1. [read more]

  15. Map-Dot-Fingerprint Dystrophy
    Map-dot-fingerprint dystrophy pertains to a condition characterized by an abnormal appearance of the eye cornea, usually with map-like patches or gray outlines resembling continents on a map. This condition is also known as epithelial basement membrane dystrophy. [read more]

  16. Maple Syrup Urine Disease
    Maple syrup urine disease also called branched-chain ketoaciduria, is an autosomal recessive metabolic disorder affecting branched-chain amino acids. This is one type of organic acidemia. Maple syrup urine disease is a metabolism disorder passed down through families in which the body cannot break down certain parts of proteins. [read more]

  17. Marburg Fever
    Marburg fever is a rare and severe type of hemorrhagic fever affecting both human and non-human primates. It is a serious virus related to Ebola. The disease is transmitted through bodily fluids like saliva, blood, excrements (waste products of metabolism), and vomit. [read more]

  18. Marchiafava Bignami Disease
    Marchiafava-Bignami disease is also known as Marchiafava's disease and Marchiafava's syndrome. It is a progressive neurological disorder oftentimes associated with alcohol abuse and/or nutritional disorder. [read more]

  19. Marcus Gunn Phenomenon
    Marcus Gunn phenomenon is a congenital condition where the eyelids of an infant droop but rise up when the mouth is opened. It is an autosomal dominant condition also known as Marcus Gunn Jaw Winking or Trigemino-oculomotor Synkineses. This condition is named after Marcus Gunn characterized by rhythmic upward jerking of the upper eyelid of an infant. [read more]

  20. Marek Disease
    Marek's disease is an extremely contagious viral neoplastic disease in chickens that is characterized especially by proliferation of lymphoid cells and is caused by a herpes virus having several serotypes. It usually affects both commercial and backyard poultry that often results to severe production loss or death. Marek's disease causes multiple nerve changes and aids in the development of tumors in major internal organs. [read more]
