So basically, "sequela" is fancy Latin for "consequence", right? —Nahum Reduta 10:21, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

It appears that here "sequela" is defined as a complication that is chronic. In that sense, a sequela is distinct from a late effect, which can be acute. --Una Smith (talk) 04:34, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Poor Example[edit] stress disorder may be a psychological sequela of rape.

Need to cite a reference to this or use a better example. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:29, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

I agree about the "rape" example[edit]

While the example given is certainly accurate, and such statements are often made; the term "sequela" is mainly used to describe the consequences of medical illnesses/diseases. Rape is not an illness or disease.

How about giving a strictly-medical example, such as, "Infertility is often a sequela of cystic fibrosis"? Or, "Rheumatic heart disease is a potentially deadly sequela of rheumatic fever"? These sound better to me. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Eztidun (talkcontribs) 14:48, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Sequelae are not necessarily medical; the content of this article does not yet fulfill the scope implied by its title. --Una Smith (talk) 23:39, 10 September 2008 (UTC)


Seems to me that this article belongs in wiktionary, rather than wikipedia. It's not am encyclopaedic entry or concept. (talk) 10:08, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
