nosology

The science of the classification of diseases. There have been suggestions that nosology may sometimes be influenced by factors other than the purely terminological and the need for accurate description. If, for instance, most mood disorders are actually a combination of anxiety and depression (see COTHYMIA), it is unsatisfactory to assert that these are two different diseases requiring different drug treatments. From the Greek nosos , disease.
