From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In medicine, a sequence refers to a series of ordered consequences due to a single cause.[1]

It differs from a syndrome in that seriality is more predictable: if A causes B, and B causes C, and C causes D, then D would not be seen if C is not seen. However, in less formal contexts, the term "syndrome" is sometimes used instead of sequence.
