    Diagnose:V.a. Enterotoxin bedingte Gastroenteritis
    Comment
    Von einem patientenentlassungsbrief.

    I'm really bad with abbreviations. Is this a well-known German abbreviation or a medically specific one?

    Can anyone tell me with it is? And even better, what the English equivalent is?

    v.a. is the usual abbreviation of "vor allem", which means "first of all, particularly, mainly". So the main cause for the Gastroenteritis is Enterotoxin, but there are/may be other causes too.

    OK, I'm not a medecine-man... What to learn: Usual abbreviations are not for everyone! :)

    It's definitely "Verdacht auf" = "suspected"

    Womit auch die zweite Frage beantwortet wäre:
    v.a. im täglichen Leben ist "vor allem",
    im medizinischen Bereich "Verdacht auf" - letzteres ist aber nicht allgemein bekannt.
