Abdominal pain - acute
In the course of life, many people are affected by abdominal pain at some point. The intensity, location and exact symptoms (pinching, pulling, stabbing) can vary.

Acoustic neuroma (cerebellopontine angle tumor)
Acoustic neuroma is a growth on a cranial nerve responsible for hearing and balance. Although the growth is benign, it nevertheless impairs brain function because it is located in very confined areas of the brain, in the internal auditory canal or at the so-called cerebellopontine angle.
Acoustic trauma (bang trauma)
When deciding whether to preserve hearing or vision at all costs, if both are not possible, many prefer to do without hearing, as it does not seem to be so important. This opinion is also reflected in daily life, where it is noticeable that hearing is insufficiently protected.
Actinic (solar) keratosis
Never go out of the house without appropriate sun protection! Avoid the midday sun!

The diagnosis "acute leukemia" is probably something shocking for everyone. You may know that it has something to do with the blood and that it is a cancer, but how exactly what is not working is usually unclear.
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL)
The blood can be considered one of the most important organs of our body. If the system no longer functions, no substances can be transported, no oxygen can reach the tissues, no germs and pathogens can be fought, the whole organism collapses.
Acute middle ear infections (otitis media acuta)
Especially small children often whine, without you can determine what is really missing. Then they cry, constantly hang on the tail and constantly want attention.
Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML)
Leukemia - a diagnosis that probably shocks everyone at first, even though there have been decisive successes in recent years in the development of more effective treatments against blood cancer. However, the prognosis depends very much on the particular form of leukaemia.
Acute renal failure (Acute renal insufficiency)
The kidneys are probably one of the organs we think about the least. We consume all kinds of food and toxins, and do not think at all that our kidneys have to excrete a large part of the potentially harmful substances again.
ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder)
Especially in elementary school, people like to throw around the term ADHD when it comes to children who require a high level of attention. The children are accused of constantly disrupting lessons, not being able to sit still and being too much of a burden.
AIDS and HIV

Allergy for baby & child
Allergies are serious defensive reactions of the body that occur in humans whenever the immune system feels attacked. In babies and children, such allergies can be very worrying, as their immune system is not yet as robust as that of a full-grown person.
Allergy to animal hair - the allergy to pets
One type of allergy that is particularly troublesome for animal lovers and dog or cat owners is the so-called pet or animal hair allergy. This is a hypersensitivity reaction to various tiny body secretions of our pets.
Allergy to dust mites
The subject of allergies and all the associated health problems are becoming increasingly important, especially in industrialised countries: one of the reasons for this is the high demands placed on the quality of life. People insulate their houses and apartments, electrically controlled heating systems ensure an even room temperature, air conditioning systems take care of the appropriate room climate and comfortable upholstered furniture creates the ideal conditions for feeling good.
Everyone has probably heard of Alzheimer's. But what the disease really means for sufferers and their relatives is unclear to many.
amoebic dysentery (amoebiasis)

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
