Meaning of Sclerosis
sclerosis (also spelled sclerosus in the names of a few disorders; from Greek σκληρός "hard") is the stiffening of a structure, usually caused by a replacement of the normal organ-specific tissue with connective tissue. - See link


Sclerosis in Spanish is Esclerosis
La esclerosis (del griego sklerós, en español, "duro") es un endurecimiento del órgano o tejido debido a un incremento de los tejidos conjuntivos. La esclerosis es, por lo tanto, una enfermedad que deriva de otra, no es una enfermedad autónoma.
