discontinuity / lack of continuity


Explanation:
I'd use one of those.

"SOLUTION OF CONTINUITY" is highly unusual in Medicine. I ran a Medline search of all the articles published between 1995 & 2002. Only 2 articles turned up with the phrase "solution of continuity": both were written by Italian authors.

Good luck
