English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Noun[edit]

pruritis (uncountable)

  1. Misspelling of pruritus.

Usage notes[edit]

The word pruritus does not contain the suffix -itis (which denotes inflammation), but owing to the similar sound (with a reduced vowel in either case), many writers misspell pruritus, even in the medical literature. Careful writers avoid the censure of discerning readers by using the correct spelling.
