Abnormalities, Drug-Induced definition: Congenital abnormalities caused by medicinal substances or drugs of abuse given to or taken by the mother, or to which she is inadvertently exposed during the manufacture of such substances. The concept excludes abnormalities resulting from exposure to non-medicinal chemicals in the environment.
Abnormalities, Radiation-Induced definition: Congenital changes in the morphology of organs produced by exposure to ionizing or non-ionizing radiation.
Radiation-Related Disorder definition: A non-neoplastic or neoplastic disorder which results from exposure to radiation. Examples of non-neoplastic disorders include dermatitis, enteritis, stomatitis, pneumonitis, and cerebritis. Examples of neoplastic disorders include myelodysplastic syndromes, leukemias, and sarcomas.
Alcohol Amnestic Disorder definition: A mental disorder associated with chronic ethanol abuse (ALCOHOLISM) and nutritional deficiencies characterized by short term memory loss, confabulations, and disturbances of attention. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1139)
chemically induced definition: Used for biological phenomena, diseases, syndromes, congenital abnormalities, or symptoms caused by endogenous or exogenous substances.
Fatty Liver, Alcoholic definition: Lipid infiltration of the hepatic parenchymal cells that is due to ALCOHOL ABUSE. The fatty changes in the alcoholic fatty liver may be reversible, depending on the amounts of TRIGLYCERIDES accumulated.
alcoholic fatty liver definition: lipid infiltration and fatty degeneration of liver parenchymal cells due to alcohol abuse; may be associated with alcohol hepatitis or cirrhosis.
Hyperthermia, Induced definition: Abnormally high temperature intentionally induced in living things regionally or whole body. It is most often induced by radiation (heat waves, infra-red), ultrasound, or drugs.
Hypothermia, Induced definition: Abnormally low BODY TEMPERATURE that is intentionally induced in warm-blooded animals by artificial means. In humans, mild or moderate hypothermia has been used to reduce tissue damages, particularly after cardiac or spinal cord injuries and during subsequent surgeries.
induced hypothermia definition: abnormally low body temperature intentionally induced in warm-blooded animals by artificial means.
Liver Diseases, Alcoholic definition: Liver diseases associated with ALCOHOLISM. It usually refers to the coexistence of two or more subentities, i.e., ALCOHOLIC FATTY LIVER; ALCOHOLIC HEPATITIS; and ALCOHOLIC CIRRHOSIS.
Shared Paranoid Disorder definition: A condition in which closely related persons, usually in the same family, share the same delusions.
Alcoholic Neuropathy definition: A condition where damage to the peripheral nervous system (including the peripheral elements of the autonomic nervous system) is associated with chronic ingestion of alcoholic beverages. The disorder may be caused by a direct effect of alcohol, an associated nutritional deficiency, or a combination of factors. Clinical manifestations include variable degrees of weakness; ATROPHY; PARESTHESIAS; pain; loss of reflexes; sensory loss; diaphoresis; and postural hypotension. (From Arch Neurol 1995;52(1):45-51; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1146)
Akathisia, Drug-Induced definition: A condition associated with the use of certain medications and characterized by an internal sense of motor restlessness often described as an inability to resist the urge to move.
Induction definition: The act of bringing about something.
Alcohol-Induced Disorders definition: Disorders stemming from the misuse and abuse of alcohol.
Labor, Induced definition: Artificially induced UTERINE CONTRACTION. Generally, LABOR, OBSTETRIC is induced with the intent to cause delivery of the fetus and termination of pregnancy.
induced labor definition: artificially induced uterine contractions intended to cause delivery of the fetus.
Korsakoff Syndrome definition: An acquired cognitive disorder characterized by inattentiveness and the inability to form short term memories. This disorder is frequently associated with chronic ALCOHOLISM; but it may also result from dietary deficiencies; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; NEOPLASMS; CEREBROVASCULAR DISORDERS; ENCEPHALITIS; EPILEPSY; and other conditions. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1139)
Wernicke Korsakoff syndrome definition: behavior disorder caused by thiamine deficiency, most commonly due to chronic alcohol abuse; Wernicke's encephalopathy involves confusion, ataxia, nystagmus and ophthalmoplegia and is generally reversible by thiamine administration; Korsakoff's syndrome, involving severe anterograde and retrograde amnesia, may appear later and complete recovery is less frequent.
Abortion, Induced definition: Intentional removal of a fetus from the uterus by any of a number of techniques. (POPLINE, 1978)
induced abortion definition: deliberate termination of pregnancy, generally through the use of surgical procedures or drugs.
Alcohol Withdrawal Seizures definition: A condition where seizures occur in association with ethanol abuse (ALCOHOLISM) without other identifiable causes. Seizures usually occur within the first 6-48 hours after the cessation of alcohol intake, but may occur during periods of alcohol intoxication. Single generalized tonic-clonic motor seizures are the most common subtype, however, STATUS EPILEPTICUS may occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1174)
Induced Mutation definition: A mutation triggered by outside influences (e.g., radiation, chemicals or other means) as opposed to those created by the inherent infidelity of DNA polymerase.
Induced Abortion definition: Abortion brought on intentionally.
Abortion, Induced definition: Abortion brought on intentionally.
Cataract, Induced definition: A cataract that has been produced artificially or by induction, e.g. as a result of device use, medication, trauma, tears, falls, accidental injury, etc.
