There are diseases, syndromes, disorders, etc.

The question may mean something like: Is there a count of pathological configurations?

Well, there is a lower bound, given by a count of all such pathologies published, taking account of potential duplications.

Perhaps surprisingly, there is also an upper bound, given by (a modification of) the product of the number of "pathologically susceptible artifacts", e.g. tissue, genes, cells, etc. and the modes of pathologies, e.g. necrosis, neoplasm, atrophy, etc.

One can, in principle, create a disease whether or not it has been observed: chose a chromosome, then select a locus, replace a constituent, let us say replace a carbon atom (or a larger species, as you like) with, say "nothing". We have a defect described as a missing carbon on the gene in question. The hard part is determining what the signs, symptoms and remediation would be.

So we have an estimate of perhaps 10^34 "diseases" possible in modern homo sapiens, of which on the order of 10^5 have been described (cf. ICD-10), and of which perhaps on 10^7 or 10^8 would be reasonably considered to be "diseases".

What is 10^34 ?? the value? what is the meaning of the symbol ^?

Another approachAccording to scientist Raymond Francis, there is only one disease. However, there are 2 causes (deficiency and toxicity) and 6 pathways.

Scientists working for pharmaceutical companies dream up names of new diseases and lists of symptoms every day of the year. This in no way means there are millions of diseases; only that they can now patent a chemical to be marketed as a panacea or "cure" for that targeted "disease" -- that is, until enough people are harmed or killed by the drug and it is finally taken off the market. More than three out of four Americans have a diagnosable chronic disease.

This is a very good question actually. No one knows how many different Infectious Diseases are in the world because there are tons and tons. There are some that we are learning about now, and there are most likely going to be newer ones as life progresses. Scientists have tried to estimate the amount, but it is very difficult. The only way you could really find out the exact amount is doing research in hospitals around the world and take many years to find out even a quarter of them. So it is unsure, but there are tons that people and animals can get. Hope this helped you.

There are logically an infinite amount of disease since bacteria (such as the one that causes the flu) mutates a couple times every year and will keep doing so unless we kill the entire bacteria which is EXTREMELY unlikely and will probably never happen

the newest one found is called doncalitis more formally known as donkey syndrome

it is usual found in crystals

There are SEVEN MAIN DISEASES.
