Diseases With Awesome Sounding Names

A week or two ago when I was waiting at Quest Diagnostics to give my million vials of blood, I looked on the Diagnostic Test order form the reproductive endocrinologist gave me and noticed the coolest sounding disease ever:

Maple Syrup Urine Disease.

How cool is that? I mean the name, not the disease. I'm sure that part sucks.

I think all diseases/medical conditions should be named after pancake toppings.
