    Give Today to Stop This Illness!

    There are many disease syndromes related to workplace exposures or work-related injuries. As I have mentioned in the past, the ICD-9 codebook is a great source for names of these illnesses. A few would be:

    Farmers' skin (692.74)
    Brickmakers' anemia (126.9)
    Wool-sorters' disease (022.1)
    Clam diggers' itch (120.3)

    But what could surpass the heartbreak of guitar nipple?
    (I'm guessing this code would be 611.7. Via Medpundit.)
