Pneumothorax = Pneumotórax; Color blind = Acromatopsia


Explanation:
Pneumothorax does NOT mean "collapsed lung." A pneumothorax CAN lead to a collapsed lung in some instances, and only means accumulation of air in the pleural space.
Color blind should NOT be translated as "daltonismo," since this is a problem to distinguish between colors (usually red, brown, and green). A more accurate translation is "acromatopsia."
