Re: Old Disease Names Frequently Found on Death Certificates: What Would They be Called Today? #general #names


Thanks so much, Phil!  I was surprised that it did not include the diagnoses on my grandfather's death certificate in 1917, "mitral regurgitation, stenosis, auricullar [sic] fibrillation," with pulmonary edema as a contributing factor.  He was between 37 and 39 years old. But it does include many old names of diseases that are helpful.
