Medical - Medical (general) / discharge report
Italian term or phrase: Distimico
from a discharge report

"Lo stato clinico attuale in nesso di causalità con l'errato trattamento sanitario è infatti rappresentato da una grave disfunzionalità algica dell'anca sinistra con notevole difficoltà nella deambulazione ed elevato rischio di necessità di un altro reimpianto, e da un Disturbo Distimico di tipo reattivo di grado Moderato"

I gather the patient is upset. What about the wording?

I actually agree that "the patient is upset" is an excellent description of a normal reaction to a botched medical procedure. Psychiatrists have to justify their existence, however, and so they give this reaction a professional-sounding diagnostic label.

Asker: Yes, the patient is looking for damages, so I suppose they have to "beef-up" he deal.
