  • "In medicine, comorbidity (literally "additional morbidity") is either:

    --The presence of one or more disorders (or diseases) in addition to a primary disease or disorder; or

    --The effect of such additional disorders or diseases.

    The term dual diagnosis is often applied to the comorbid existence of both a mental disorder and a developmental disability." --Wikipedia
