Template:Infobox medical condition/doc

Template:Uses Wikidata

Use this template freely for any medical condition that has an ICD code, OMIM entry, MeSH, GeneReviews英语GeneReviews ID, or other source that you think readers will benefit from seeing. Its use is not limited strictly to diseases.

Usage summary


The template does not at the current time include summary information about the condition itself. Instead, it contains a consistent interface to other sources that provide information about the condition. Don't worry about trying to fill in all the fields -- even if you can only get one or two, that can still be useful.

While editing a condition, copy and paste the following text at the top of the page:

The best place to start is often the 疾病資料庫 searching at DiseasesDB. Click on that link, and type in the name of the condition (for example, "Earache".) Click on the result you were looking for. At this point, you will see on your URL line something like "http://www.diseasesdatabase.com/ddb18027.htm". You can copy the number (in this case, "18027" onto the "DiseasesDB" line in the template, so it looks like this:

| DiseasesDB     = 18027

You will see a label that reads "Code translations and terms via UMLS.". Click on this link. The goal is to find the ICD9 and ICD10 codes. In this case, you can see "388.7" next to "ICD-9-CM, 2006" and "H92.0" next to "German translation of ICD10, 1995". Fill in these two fields:

| ICD10          = {{ICD10|H92.0}}
| ICD9           = {{ICD9|388.7}}

You may find multiple codes listed. In this case, just fill them out as follows:

| ICD10          = {{ICD10|A11}}, {{ICD10|B22}}
| ICD9           = {{ICD9|123}}, {{ICD9|456}}

In some cases, only one of the codes would apply to the current condition, but you may not always be able to determine which is which. Wikipedia:勇于更新页面, and do your best.

In most cases you can skip over the "ICD-O" field, because that only applies to conditions that cause tumors. DiseasesDB does not provide these codes, but there are some resources listed for finding them at ICD-O英语International Classification of Diseases for Oncology.

The final two fields are for OMIM and MedlinePlus. It's perfectly fine to leave these blank, but if you want to fill them out, you can sometimes find the pages by clicking on "specific web sites" in DiseaseDatabase. Alternatively use the following links to directly search OMIM and MedlinePlus.

Don't enter the full URL as this template's parameters, just the number at the end.

It is a little trickier to fill out the infobox if you can't find it listed in DiseaseDatabase. However, you can look up the codes individually if you would like. A good source for ICD9 codes is here, and a good source for ICD10 codes is here. Many more sources for ICD codes are listed at 國際疾病與相關健康問題統計分類. You can look up OMIM codes here.



You can use the |image= and |caption= to provide an illustration. These fields are optional, but it is helpful to provide an image if you can find one. The |alt= field specifies alt text, for readers who cannot see images; see WP:ALT. You can find many images over at the Wikimedia Commons that are all free.

(There is also an optional |width= parameter, which may be used to make the image show up larger or smaller than the default 190px.)


| image          = mypicture.png
| width          = 325
| alt            = A man's neck and shoulders, covered with giant green spots.
| caption        = The picture above illustrates a severe case of this condition.

Multiple-value fields


Sometimes you will find a condition with more than one entry for OMIM, MedlinePlus, or DiseaseDatabase. There are optional "_mult" fields that allow additional parameters to be passed in, with "helper templates" {{DiseasesDB2}}, {{OMIM2}}, and {{MedlinePlus2}} that can be used to form the links.

Note that the "_mult" field should be used in addition to the normal field. The following illustrates the field names and the helper templates.

| OMIM             = number1
| OMIM_mult        = {{OMIM2|number2}} ...
| DiseasesDB       = number1
| DiseasesDB_mult  = {{DiseasesDB2|number2}} ...
| MedlinePlus      = number1
| MedlinePlus_mult = {{MedlinePlus2|number2}} ...

Multiple MeSH values and multiple GeneReviews are handled differently. If there are multiple MeSH fields, just label each consecutive one MeSH2, MeSH3, etc. Likewise, use GeneReviewsNBK2, GeneReviewsName2, GeneReviewsNBK3, GeneReviewsName3, etc., for additional GeneReviews links.

An example of how this is used at is provided below (the values are mostly contrived).

Don't worry about getting all the fields -- just do your best, and if you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to ask at Template talk:Infobox medical condition.

The 医学主题词 (MeSH), formerly known as the Supplement to 医学索引, is a 受控词表 managed by the 美国国家医学图书馆. To find the MeSH code for a disease, go to the MeSH search page and enter the term into the search box. The needed MeSH number is the Unique ID in the MeSH Descriptor Page.

If more than one MeSH topic applies to a given condition (as, for example, in Hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell cancer英语Hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell cancer) you can add additional values in a list, as described above.



GeneReviews英语GeneReviews is an online collection of peer-reviewed articles that describe specific gene-related diseases. To use it, go to its home page on NCBI and in the search box, enter the disease name to see if there is a relevant gene review for this disease. For example, searching for "autism", the first hit is "Autism Spectrum Disorders", at the URL https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK1442/. Note the "NBK" number, which is the ID number of this review. It can be coded as follows:

Infobox medical condition/doc
MeSH Template:Comma separated entries
GeneReviews * Template:NCBIBook2
{{Infobox medical condition
| GeneReviewsNBK  = NBK1442
| GeneReviewsName = Autism Spectrum Disorders

If the condition has more than one relevant GeneReview, then you can enter these as shown in the example above, under "Multiple value fields".

Orphanet 2308

Orphanet is a major database for rare diseases. While each rare disease only affects a small population, the diseases as a group are a major cause of concern. Due to the heterogenicity of the diseases they get less press than larger diseases. Orphanet tries to centralize all the information and links that exist on a disease.

Add a link by using the Orphanet number (without ORPHA-prefix) and it will link to the English entry on their page. For an example see right.
