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)
...post-traumatic stress disorder may be a psychological sequela of rape.
I agree about the "rape" example
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 (talk • contribs) 14:48, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
