diarrhea, diarrhoia or diarrhoea

Is it 'diarrhea', 'diarrhoia' or 'diarrhoea'?

In medicine, diarrhea (from the Greek, "diarrhoia" meaning "a flowing through"), also spelled diarrhoea (see ‘Spelling Differences’ below) is characterized by frequent loose or liquid bowel movements.

Spelling Differences

diarrhea (American)
diarrhoea (British)
diarrhoia (Greek)

Simplification of 'ae' (æ) and 'oe' (œ). Many words are written with 'ae'/'æ' or 'oe'/'œ' in British English, but a single 'e' in American English. Examples (with non-American letter in bold): diarrhoea, anaemia, anaesthesia, caesium, gynaecology, haemophilia, leukaemia, oesophagus, oestrogen, orthopaedic, paediatric.

Words where British usage varies include encyclopaedia, foetus (though the British medical community deems this variant unacceptable for the purposes of journal articles and the like, since the Latin spelling is actually fetus), homoeopathy, mediaeval.

In American usage, aesthetics and archaeology prevail over esthetics and archeology, while oenology is a minor variant of enology. The Encyclopædia Britannica retained the traditional spelling even after relocating to the U.S.

Rhinitis (Runny Nose) & Post-Nasal Drip

Learn something new as often as you can...

Rhinitis, commonly known as a runny nose, is the medical term describing irritation and inflammation of some internal areas of the nose. The primary symptom of rhinitis is nasal dripping. It is caused by chronic or acute inflammation of the mucous membrane of the nose due to viruses, bacteria or irritants. The inflammation results in the generating of excessive amounts of mucus, commonly producing the aforementioned runny nose, as well as nasal congestion and post-nasal drip (PND) --- {Does 'PND' equal 'Dried Mucus'?} Rhinitis has also been found to adversely affect more than just the nose, throat, and eyes. It has been associated with sleeping problems, ear conditions, and even learning problems. Rhinitis is caused by an increase in histamine. This increase is most often caused by airborne allergens. These allergens may affect an individual's nose, throat, or eyes and cause an increase in fluid production within these areas.

Post-nasal drip (PND) occurs when excessive mucus is produced by the sinuses. The excess mucus accumulates in the throat or back of the nose. {Ok, maybe 'PND' does NOT exactly equal 'Dried Mucus', or does it? Hmm...} It can be caused by rhinitis (allergic or non-allergic), sinusitis (acute or chronic), laryngopharyngeal acid reflux (with or without heartburn), or by a disorder of swallowing (such as an esophageal motility disorder). It is frequently caused by allergies, which may be seasonal or persistent through the year, depending on the allergen(s) involved. Birth control pills or pregnancy can also cause post-nasal drip because of the elevated levels of estrogen hormones.

Found this in Singapore's TODAY Newspaper, Tuesday May 19, 2009, Page 4. I love this drawing by FAIZAL. Their official online website is at http://www.todayonline.com/.

Here's a paraphrase of the drawing...
