62. Yeuk

Yeuk is a 15th century Middle English word used by the Scots meaning "to itch". When not used as a verb, it is may be used to identify a particular sensation, i.e. the irritation of nerve endings in skin or mucous membrane that provokes the desire to scratch oneself silly if alone or look for a speedy exit if one is in mixed company. It's also a popular name for the parasitic disorder "scabies".

66. Smellie-Veit Syndrome

An actual syndrome or more commonly an obstetric maneuver used for a breech delivery of an infant. One of my co-workers years ago typed "smelly feet syndrome" in the report (she thought that is what she heard dictated) and the OB doc came by to enlighten her (as well as the rest of us), and not too nicely. He felt she should have asked or at least correlated it with the type of report she was typing. It is funny though, isn't it? I still kind of like "smelly feet syndrome", even to this day.

70. Wandering Womb

Seriously, the ancient Greeks believed that women's health issues were due to their womb wandering freely around their body. Disorders caused by the womb were remedied by making the woman smell a foul smell or applying a pleasant fragrance to the vagina. See also Body, Women.
