See Categories of disorders

In medicine, a disorder is a functional abnormality or disturbance.[1][2]

In many cases, the terms "disorder", "disease" and "illness" are used interchangeably.[3] However, because the term "disorder" is often considered more value-neutral than the term "disease", and is the preferred term within the discipline of psychology.

Medical disorders can be categorized into mental disorders or physical disorders. Mental disorder is the far more common term and physical disorder is mostly used just for distinction purposes.
