Template:Stb (pronunciation: /ˈtɛmplɪt ˈɛstbi:/) is a commonly used medical term in the field of medicine. The term originates from the Latin word 'templum', meaning 'pattern', and the abbreviation 'Stb', which stands for 'stub'.
In the context of medicine, a 'stub' refers to a short, incomplete article or section that needs expansion. A 'template', on the other hand, is a pre-defined pattern or structure that serves as a guide for creating new pages or sections. Therefore, 'Template:Stb' is a guide used by editors to create and expand short, incomplete medical articles or sections.
