  1. Relapsing Fever
    Relapsing fever is a type of fever that keeps recurring. It is often joined by headaches, muscle pain, joint aches and nausea. There are two kinds: tick-borne (TBRF) and louse-borne relapsing fever (LBRF). [read more]

  2. Relapsing Polychondritis
    Relapsing Polychondritis is a rare and chronic condition where the cartilage of different tissues become inflamed. Part of the body affect may include the ears, the nose, windpipe, spine and joints. Because the heat, eyes and blood vessels have similar make-ups, these can also be affected. [read more]

  3. Renal Agenesis
    Renal agenesis is an inborn condition in which an infant is born without one or both kidneys. The absence of one kidney at birth is called unilateral renal agenesis; while the absence of both kidneys is called bilateral renal agenesis. [read more]

  4. Renal Artery Stenosis
    Renal artery stenosis is a condition characterized by the narrowing of the renal artery, often as a result of atherosclerosis or fibromuscular dysplasia. The narrowing of the renal artery obstructs the blood flow to the target kidney, which leads to hypertension and atrophy of the affected kidney, which in turn causes renal artery stenosis, and ultimately to renal failure if untreated. [read more]

  5. Renal Calculi
    Renal Calculi, more commonly known as kidney stones, refer to crystal aggregations or solid secretions of dissolved minerals in urine. Stones or calculi often form inside the kidneys or bladder. The presence of calculi in kidneys is known as nephrolithiasis; whereas the presence of calculi in the urinary tract is known as urolithiasis. [read more]

  6. Renal Cancer
    Renal cancer means cancer of the kidney; renal being the Latin word for kidney. The most common form of renal cancer is renal cell carcinoma, which starts in the renal tubule. [read more]

  7. Renal Carbuncle
    Renal carbuncle is the medical term for abscess of the kidney, or a localized collection of pus in the kidney. [read more]

  8. Renal Carcinoma, Familial
    [read more]

  9. Renal Cell Carcinoma
    Renal cell carcinoma (acronym: RCC) is the most common type of renal or kidney cancer. It starts in the renal tubule and may spread to other parts of the body if undiagnosed early. [read more]

  10. Renal Colic
    Renal colic is a painful urinary system condition commonly due to kidney stones. Colic is a misnomer since the pain in this type of disorder is chronic, not intermittent. There are 2 varieties: dull and acute. [read more]

  11. Renal Dysplasia Limb Defects
    [read more]

  12. Renal Dysplasia Mesomelia Radiohumeral Fusion
    Renal dysplasia mesomelia radiohumeral fusion, also called Ulbright Hodes, is an extremely rare syndrome characterized by abnormalities in kidney development and various defects in the arm bone. [read more]

  13. Renal Failure
    [read more]

  14. Renal Glycosuria
    Renal glycosuria is also referred to as renal glucosuria. It is a rare genetic syndrome characterized by the excretion of simple sugar glucose in the urine despite low or normal blood glucose levels. When the kidneys function normally, glucose is eliminated in the urine only when glucose in the blood is abnormally high. However, in patients with renal glycosuria, glucose is abnormally excreted in the urine as a consequence of a malfunction in the renal tubules. [read more]

  15. Renal Osteodystrophy
    Renal osteodystrophy is described as a bone pathology marked by defective mineralization as a consequence of kidney disease. Renal oseodystrophy has two distinct forms, namely high bone turnover and low bone turnover. [read more]

  16. Renal Tuberculosis
    Simply put, renal tuberculosis is the kidney affected by tuberculosis. This is normally because of some haematogenous seeding from pulmonary diseases, although it is secondary to a tuberculous infection of the gastrointestinal tract or bone. By the time this condition is diagnosed, the primary laceration in the lungs might be calcified. [read more]

  17. Renal Tubular Acidosis
    Renal tubular acidosis (RTA) is characterized by the accumulation of acid in the body as a consequence of the failure of the kidney to adequately acidify urine. The term renal tubular acidosis is attributed mostly to defective urinary acidification in otherwise well-functioning kidneys. There are different forms of renal tubular acidosis, each of which has different causes and symptoms. [read more]

  18. Repetitive Strain Injury
    Repetitive strain injury (RSI) pertains to a range of conditions that result from the overuse of certain tools such as a computer, guitar, or knife, or other activities that require movement repetition. RSI commonly affects the muscles, tendons, and nerves of the hands, arms, and upper back. RSI is also alternatively known as occupational overuse syndrome, cumulative trauma disorder (CTD), or work related upper limb disorder (WRULD). [read more]

  19. Respiratory Acidosis
    Respiratory acidosis is the abnormal increase of acidity in the blood as a consequence of decreased ventilation of the pulmonary alveoli, which leads to an increase in carbon dioxide concentration (PaCO2). Respiratory acidosis can be either acute or chronic. [read more]

  20. Respiratory Diphtheria
    Respiratory diphtheria pertains to an acute bacterial illness infecting the throat. [read more]
