Efficacy The extent to which a particular treatment produces the desired effect.
Epistaxis Frequent and prolonged nosebleeds. Commonly a symptom of bleeding disorders, especially von Willebrand's Disease.
Erythroblastosis fetalis Also known as Hemolytic Disease of the Newborn (HDN). This is a potentially severe condition affecting newborns. If a mother has developed antibodies to her fetus' blood type, the mother's blood attacks the fetus' blood, causing the red blood cells to burst. The baby is born anemic, jaundiced, and with an enlarged liver and spleen. This condition is most easily prevented by careful prenatal care in which the mother's blood is prevented from forming the antibodies against the fetus' blood.
Etiology The cause of a disease.
