From time to time, a question is asked on medical discussion lists about
the meaning of medical acronyms. A very extensive website source for
medically related acronyms is Pharma Lexica. Pharma Lexica is now,
however, a fee based subscription service with access only to paid
subscribers. For any who subscribe to Harrison's online, this extensive
medical information resource and instructional resource includes a
dictionary of medical acronyms online. Below my signature lines, you will
find a list of websites with dictionaries or glossaries of acronyms
related to the medical field, lists of medical acronym and other
dictionaries and a brief list of published print acronym dictionaries. I
hope that this information will be useful to the members of this
discussion group.

Sincerely,
