Glossary of Old Medical Terms #general


Joyaa Antares
 

Hi All,

In trying to decipher a copy of an old English death certificate I received
the other day, I came across this very helpful site,
http://www.thornber.net/medicine/html/medgloss.html

I eventually decided my certificate said "Inanition" and "Asthenia".
"Inanition" was a new term to me. I hope you find this site helpful.

Cheers, Joyaa Antares
