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.)
