  7. Mitochondrial Disease

    Mitochondrial disorders are disorders that affect the skeletal muscles as well as the heart muscles causing problems in the body's organs such as the nervous system, visual system, renal system and, digestive and circulatory systems. [read more]

  9. Mitochondrial Trifunctional Protein Deficiency

  10. Mitral Atresia
    Mitral atresia is a congenital defect wherein the mitral valve is closed prohibiting the flow of blood between the two heart chambers. [read more]

  11. Mitral valve prolapse
    A valvular heart disease, 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]

  12. Mitral Valve Prolapse, Familial, Autosomal Dominant
    Mitral valve prolapse is a heart disease in which during systole, the mitral valve leaflet is displaced into the left atrium. An individual with this disease has an abnormally thick mitral valve leaflet. [read more]

  13. Mitral valve prolapse, familial, x-linked
    This heart disease is congenital where an abnormal heart valve (mitral valve) fails to close properly and allows some blood to leak through. [read more]

  14. Mitral Valve Regurgitation
    Mitral valve regurgitation otherwise known as the mitral regurgitation or the mitral insufficiency, or the mitral incompetence, is a medical condition where the heart's mitral valve does not close tightly causing the blood to flow back in the heart causing fatigue and shortness of breathing. [read more]

  15. Mitral Valve Stenosis
    Mitral valve stenosis otherwise known as the mitral stenosis is a condition whereby the heart mitral valve is narrowed which thereby prevents the valve from opening fully and causes obstruction of blood flow between the left chamber of the heart. [read more]

  16. Mittelschmerz
    Mittelschmerz, a German word to refer middle pain, is condition where there is pain on one side of the lower abdomen that usually occurs in women midway or 14 days before their menstrual period. [read more]

  17. Mixed connective tissue disease
    A disease also known as Sharp syndrome, mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) is a term used by some experts to describe a collection of symptoms similar to those of systemic lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, polymyositis, and dermatomyositis. MCTD is a serious autoimmune disease in which the body's defense system attacks itself. [read more]

  18. Mobius syndrome
    Named after German neurologist Paul Julius Mobius, Mobius/Moebius syndrome is an extremely neurological disorder. [read more]

  19. Mody Diabetes
    MODY diabetes is short for Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young, and pertains to a rare type of diabetes mellitus types that is genetically inherited. [read more]

  20. MODY syndrome
    Referring to any several rare hereditary forms of diabetes mellitus due to dominantly inherited defects of insulin secretion, maturity onset diabetes of the young or MODY acts like a mild version of type 1 diabetes. the continued partial insulin production and normal insulin sensitivity however mean it is not type 2 diabetes in a young person. The most common forms of the disease are MODY 2 and MODY 3 but as of 2004, six more types have been named and more are likely to be added. [read more]
