Yentl syndrome
 n.— «Although a series of high profile publications in the early 1990’s documenting less invasive investigation and treatment in women generated intense interest in the arena of gender bias, some more recent reports assert that there is “No evidence for the Yentl Syndrome.” The Yentl syndrome being the term coined to describe the practice of treating women equally only when they were identified as being the same as men.» —“Women at heart: Stop the bias” in Stockholm, Sweden EurakAlert Sept. 9, 2005.
