Iatrogenesis - Definition


Definition


Iatrogenesis is derived from the Greek for "originating from a physician". This therefore relates to a clinical manifestation caused by a medical professional who administers treatment to a patient, unintentionally inducing harmful effects, which medical parlance defines as side effects. Iatrogenesis can manifest as a change in a patient's condition or the appearance of a new disease. The patient can, for example, be administered anti-inflammatory drugs for joint pain, then develop medical iatrogenesis causing severe digestive disorder.
