The anatomy of the underlying organ system or structures associated with this entity.
cause MedicalCause An underlying cause. More specifically, one of the causative agent(s) that are most directly responsible for the pathophysiologic process that eventually results in the occurrence.
differentialDiagnosis DDxElement One of a set of differential diagnoses for the condition. Specifically, a closely-related or competing diagnosis typically considered later in the cognitive process whereby this medical condition is distinguished from others most likely responsible for a similar collection of signs and symptoms to reach the most parsimonious diagnosis or diagnoses in a patient.
epidemiology Text The characteristics of associated patients, such as age, gender, race etc.
expectedPrognosis Text The likely outcome in either the short term or long term of the medical condition.
naturalProgression Text The expected progression of the condition if it is not treated and allowed to progress naturally.
pathophysiology Text Changes in the normal mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions that are associated with this activity or condition.
possibleComplication Text A possible unexpected and unfavorable evolution of a medical condition. Complications may include worsening of the signs or symptoms of the disease, extension of the condition to other organ systems, etc.
possibleTreatment MedicalTherapy A possible treatment to address this condition, sign or symptom.
primaryPrevention MedicalTherapy A preventative therapy used to prevent an initial occurrence of the medical condition, such as vaccination.
riskFactor MedicalRiskFactor A modifiable or non-modifiable factor that increases the risk of a patient contracting this condition, e.g. age, coexisting condition.
secondaryPrevention MedicalTherapy A preventative therapy used to prevent reoccurrence of the medical condition after an initial episode of the condition.
signOrSymptom MedicalSignOrSymptom A sign or symptom of this condition. Signs are objective or physically observable manifestations of the medical condition while symptoms are the subjective experience of the medical condition.

Properties from Thing
additionalType URL An additional type for the item, typically used for adding more specific types from external vocabularies in microdata syntax. This is a relationship between something and a class that the thing is in. In RDFa syntax, it is better to use the native RDFa syntax - the 'typeof' attribute - for multiple types. Schema.org tools may have only weaker understanding of extra types, in particular those defined externally.
alternateName Text An alias for the item.

    Examples

    <h1>Stable angina (angina pectoris)</h1>
    Stable angina is a medical condition that affects the heart. The
    most common causes are atherosclerosis and spasms of the
    epicardial artery. Typical symptoms include:
    <ul>
      <li>chest discomfort</li>
      <li>feeling of tightness, heaviness, or pain in the chest</li>
    </ul>
    Both stable angina and a heart attack result in chest pain, but
    a heart attack will have chest pain lasting at least
    10 minutes at rest, repeated episodes of chest pain at rest
    lasting 5 or more minutes, or an accelerating pattern of chest
    discomfort (episodes that are more frequent, severe,
    longer in duration, and precipitated by minimal exertion).
    <br>
    Risk factors for stable angina include:
    <ul>
      <li>Age</li>
      <li>Gender</li>
      <li>Systolic blood pressure</li>
      <li>Smoking</li>
      <li>Total cholesterol and/or cholesterol:HDL ratio</li>
      <li>Coronary artery disease</li>
    </ul>
    The initial treatment for stable angina is usually drug therapy
    with aspirin, beta blockers, ACE inhibitors, and/or nitroglycerine.
    Future episodes of stable angina can sometimes be prevented by
    stopping smoking, weight management, and increased physical activity.
