Free Medical Terminology Practice Test: Pathological Skin Conditions

Pathological skin conditions are often quite challenging for those who are studying these medical terms. Some familiar words appear among the list, particularly those that we have seen or experienced. For example, someone who has experienced third degree burns is likely to remember identifying characteristics. Some conditions have very similar names while some lesions with similar symptoms might have names that vary widely.

Some folks might find unusual ways to remember a term, such as Willy Wonka's line in the 2005 film about Veruca being the name for a wart or remembering that a callous person might have thick skin! A knowledge of prefixes and suffixes can be helpful. For example, leukoplakia involves white patches.
