Idiopathic is a medical term which pertains to a condition or illness with no apparent cause. Such cases spontaneously manifest and available tests were already exhausted regarding their reasons. Idiopathic is based on the Greek words “idios” which translates to “one’s own” and “pathos” which means “disease”. Hence, it is a disease on its own as it is not related to a certain condition. For instance, idiopathic chronic pelvic pain refers to the patient’s disease which has no identifiable cause.
