WHAT DOES IDIOPATHIC MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Idiopathic

An idiopathic disease or condition is one whose cause is not known or one that arises spontaneously. From Greek ἴδιος idios "one's own" and πάθος pathos "suffering", it means approximately "a disease of its own kind". It is technically a term from nosology, the classification of disease. For some medical conditions, one or more causes are somewhat understood, but in a certain percentage of people with the condition, the cause may not be readily apparent or characterized. In these cases, the origin of the condition is said to be idiopathic. With some medical conditions, the root cause for a large percentage of all cases has not been established—for example, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis or ankylosing spondylitis; the majority of these cases are deemed idiopathic. With other conditions, idiopathic cases account for only a small percentage. Regarding a particular condition or disease, as more root causes are discovered the percentage of cases designated "idiopathic" decreases. The word essential is sometimes synonymous with idiopathic, and the same is true of primary.
