    The suffix “-itis” is derived originally from the Greek and refers to an inflammation of sorts or disease of some kind

    Good Luck!

    itis: Suffix meaning inflammation. For example, colitis is literally colon inflammation or figuratively inflammation of the colon. The ending -itis is one of the building blocks derived from Greek (in this case) or Latin used to construct medical terms.

    C. Inflammation.

    This is a non-specific ending that simply means irritated.
