Looking at child referrals from many of our country programs can be interesting. Sometimes it seems that the English translations are still in some form of a foreign language. The most interesting place we see this is in the medicals from some countries. Here are some interesting terms and their more easily understood definitions!
Defectology- children who may be considered "defective" adults
Neuro-reflex-hyperexcitability syndrome - a high strung infant
Intestinal Dysbacteriosis - a disruption of the normal gut bacteria
Hypotrophy - slow growth
