English term or phrase: jaundice, seizure
I am looking for the most common translation of these words.
For example, what would you see on a prescription label.
kelsa
Spanish translation:ictericia, convulsión
Explanation:
These are the best terms to use if you are going to put them on a prescription label. "Piel amarilla" is sometimes used instead of "ictericia" but usually only when speaking.

Explanation:
Hola hola. That's what Collins says. Ictericia and derrame cerebral are quite popula; ataque de apoplejía a little more technical. Cheers :)

Paul, I must respectfully beg to differ


Explanation:
"Derrame cerebral" and "apoplejía" are actually the correct terms for stroke.
A stroke is not the same thing as a convulsion.

Ictericia


Explanation:
Jaundice = Ictericia (disorder caused by excesive bilirubin in the blood). Seizure = Ataque repentino, convulsión. Seizure activity = Actividad convulsiva. Ref. Medical Dictionary EN<>ES by Onyria Herrera McElroy. Espero sea de ayuda.

ictericia, ataque (epiléptica)


Explanation:
Some seizures, in petit mal epilepsy for example, are not accompanied by convulsions. I would therefore use for "seizure" the word "ataque" qualified by an adjective denoting the causative condition.
