Found at site of the problem.
General indicators of illness.
Objective indicators of disease that are obvious to someone other than the affected individual.

When manifestations of disease subside.
When signs of disease increase. (Flare-ups)
A collection of signs and symptoms that usually occur together in response to a certain condition.
Condition that triggers an acute episode.
New secondary or additional problems that arise after the original disease begins.
Period of recovery and return to the normal healthy state.
Defines the probability for recovery or for other outcomes.
Indicates the disease rates within a group.
Indicate the relative number of deaths resulting from a particular disease.
Science of tracking the pattern or occurrence of disease.
