Being in love with diseases, being enamoured by diseases. Different from hypochondira in that it stems not from a fear or false preceptions of having a diseases but from a genuine interest.
My grandma thinks she's always sick and loves going to the hospital. Everyone calls her a hypochondriac, but when I see the sparkle in her eyes when she starts on about her diseases, I've come to realize that she's an ameobaphiliac.
