Alternate names

STEVENS-JOHNSON SYNDROME Is also known as dermatostomatitis, stevens johnson type


Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a limited form of toxic epidermal necrolysis (see this term) characterized by destruction and detachment of the skin epithelium and mucous membranes involving less than 10% of the body surface area.

Most common symptoms of STEVENS-JOHNSON SYNDROME

  • Anemia
  • Visual impairment
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Dysphagia




Alternate names

HYPERTENSION, ESSENTIAL Is also known as eht


The Pickering school held that blood pressure has a continuous distribution, that multiple genes and multiple environmental factors determine the level of one's blood pressure just as the determination of stature and intelligence is multifactorial, and that 'essential hypertension' is merely the upper end of the distribution (Pickering, 1978). In this view the person with essential hypertension is one who happens to inherit an aggregate of genes determining hypertension (and also is exposed to exogenous factors that favor hypertension). The Platt school took the view that essential hypertension is a simple mendelian dominant trait (Platt, 1963). McDonough et al. (1964) defended the monogenic idea. See McKusick (1960) and Kurtz and Spence (1993) for reviews. Swales (1985) reviewed the Platt-Pickering controversy as an 'episode in recent medical history.' The Pickering point of view appears to be more consistent with the observations.

Most common symptoms of HYPERTENSION, ESSENTIAL

  • Hypertension
  • Hypertonia
  • Small for gestational age
  • Hypotension
  • Malnutrition





Malaria is a preventable life-threatening parasitic disease caused by Plasmodium (P. ) parasites that are transmitted by Anophles mosquito bites to humans and is typically clinically characterized by attacks of fever, headache, chills and vomiting.

Most common symptoms of MALARIA

  • Cognitive impairment
  • Anemia
  • Fever
  • Respiratory distress
