medical terms...

usually when studying we medical people come across many difficult terms which we have to remember and regurgitate it out in our exams!..here are few of those ultra complex terms which i have come across in the last 31/2 years of my medical training!!!

1) Pneumonoultramicroscopic silicovolcanoconiosis-a lung disease caused by silica


2) Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefrage(AO)-study of internal fixation of bone fractures


3) dysdiadokokinesia-difficulty in performing rapid alternating movements usually seen in cerebellar damage in alcoholics


4) Hepaticocholangiocholecystenterostomies - a surgical creation of a connection between the gall bladder and a hepatic duct[liver] and between the intestine and the gall bladder[organ below the liver].
