There are some rather strange medical conditions in this list!

pilimiction n 1847 -1874
passing of hair-like bodies in the urine
His doctor was particularly concerned about his pilimiction, for obvious reasons.

siagonology n 1895 -1895
study of jaw-bones
Reliance on siagonology alone led to the proliferation of the Piltdown Man hoax.

sireniform adj 1849 -1852
having the lower legs abnormally joined into a single limb
When they learned that their child had a sireniform deformity, they were devastated.

tussicate v 1598 -1890
to cough
He tussicated throughout the opera, annoying nearby audience members.

visotactile adj 1652 -1652
involving both touch and vision
The deaf man learned to make better use of visotactile input in his daily life.

My sentence: As his patient tussicated, the doctor siagonogy for irregular movement. Continuing with visotactile examination he was concerned at his patients admission of pilimiction. To ease his patients worry, the doctor related his investigations into sireniform.

Did you write a sentence with the words?
