This is a complete list of the diseases you can catch in Morrowind. Yellow Entries appear only in Tribunal, and Blue only in Bloodmoon.

[edit] Common Diseases

These are the most common diseases in Morrowind. They can all be cured with the Cure Common Disease effect, or you can protect yourself with the Resist Common Disease or Resist Magicka effects. Some races are naturally resistant to diseases. Altmer, Argonians, Bosmer and Redguards each have 75% resistance. You can achieve 100% resistance after a point in the Main Quest.

Note: The numbers listed for effects are the maximum a disease can damage you; the minimum is always 10.

[edit] Blight Diseases

There are also other diseases called Blight Diseases in Morrowind. These are more serious, and slightly harder to cure. You will probably need a Cure Blight Disease spell if you venture into the Ashlands, Molag Amur, or Red Mountain areas, where these diseases are prevalent. The use of Resist Blight Disease or Resist Magicka effects to protect yourself from catching them in the first place is recommended.

Note: As with the common diseases the values are the maximum it can affect you. The minimum is 20 for all blight diseases.

[edit] Corprus Disease

Worst of all the afflictions is the dreaded Corprus disease, also known as The Divine Disease. While technically a type of blight disease, it has no known cure, although Divayth Fyr in Tel Fyr spends his days researching one in the Corprusarium.

There are only two ways to get this disease: during the Sixth House Base mission during the Main Quest (this is completely unavoidable) and during the Disease Carrier quest in the Tribunal Temple quest line (this is a game breaking bug). Corprus is sometimes called the "divine disease" by followers of Dagoth Ur, and it is not truly a disease at all, but the physical effects of the deity's power on mortal flesh. Corprus metastasization are often eaten by the inflicted, negating any need for other food. It may play some role in the creation of Ash Creatures.
