“Sl.-m.”, “slight to medium” – sounds like an evaluation of severity and/or volume, thus fitting the context.


By the way:
“M. haemorrhoidalis” is “Melitta haemorrhoidalis” is a species of the bee.Кочёвки

Example sentence(s):
  • slight-to-medium myopia (Google Books)
  • slight to medium headache, slight to medium irreversible dementia, slight to medium facial paralysis, slight to medium tremors (all Google/Web)

Why would you think that "M. haemorrhoidalis" is hemorrhoids? It doesn't make sense. It could be middle rectal artery (from Latin arteria haemorrhoidalis media). Not sure what SI means. Might have to do something with sigmoid and together indicating the area covered or reviewed.
