The entries start with a definition section and highlight the basic facts of the disease to explain the causes, symptoms, and treatments. Other sections give a more detailed description, talk about demographics, and discuss the future of the disease, for example, if any new treatments are under development or if the disease is becoming more or less prevalent.The U?X?L Encyclopedia of Diseases and Disorders uses everyday language when possible, and explains medical terms as they arise. Terms are also defined in Words to Know sidebars within entries, and a collected Words to Know section is included in the beginning of each book.
