Dutch term or phrase: epitheleum
Hello again, and Happy New Year to everyone - hope y'all had a good festive season.

I'm currently translating an ad for a manufacturer of contact lenses, and am having trouble with the term "epitheleum" - I have come across "epithelium" before. Do these happen to be the same thing?

Context sentence:
Steeds vaker krijgen lensdragers last van geïrriteerde of doge ogen. Bij ca. 30% van de lensdragers vervormt de cornea door het dragen van een lens. Dit kan variëren van lichte tot ernstige beschadigingen aan de cornea, met name aan het epithelium.

All suggestions welcome - KudoZ points will be awarded asap.

Thanks,

Pikey

Explanation:
Hi Pikey,

De beste wensen voor 2001.

Epitheleum is epitheleum in English. According to van Dale it is "de opperste laag van het bekleedsel van organen".

You were right, the English term is identical to the Dutch term.

ephithelium


Explanation:
Pinkhof Geneeskundig Woordenboek only lists epithelium (page 257). My personal editor happens to be an MD (U.S.) and according to her, the two words are used interchangeably - ephithelium and epitheleum - merely two different spellings for the same word.
