As the question is stated, there is no simple list.

As an offhanded answer - there are a large number of pathologies that could prevent someone from attending school. The list varies from locale to locale, and population to population. "Population" as defined in the biological sense as a group of interbreeding people. What exactly are you trying to find out?

- PS: the answer is almost certainly not a list of 1500 diseases.

i am not asking for all the diseases or causes , just the most common ones , a list of 5 or less could be enough .
they must make someone unable to participate in school sports for long terms like for more than a year or even for all the years of school .

thank you .

North africa .
the student must also be fully able to normally study at school and have a normal body build , he is just incapable to exercise physical activities .
maybe breathing problems ? are there any illnesses related to breathing and lungs that would make one unable to do large efforts ?

thank you .

Hmm. Sounds like a you are writing a novel. This is not my area.

But McArdle's disease is characterized by an extreme intolerance of running. The body cannot break down glycogen in muscles because of an inherited recessive gene. McArdles Syndome sufferers are usually very sedentary.

Kearns-Sayre syndrome is also a genetic disease. It manifests with all kinds of symptoms, usually with extremely poor depth perception and hand-eye coordination, such that catching a ball is impossible. Running results in bad falls. This is due to abnormal eye muscle control. These folks would never pass a drivers license exam in most places.

This would be a decent guess - I assume you want a malady that when managed is not fatal, but is persistent.

Anemia, though that usually occurs as a symptom and could have different causes. It certainly prevents the body from using oxygen efficiently. There is also sickle-cell disease that may fit your requirements as well.

@Evo - great point.
I took the question to mean an esoteric condition, since the OP was clearly looking for something totally contrived. If I could have found a

'Farkleberry's Rhabdomyolitic Disease'

with physical debilitation as a primary symptom in my ancient pathology text I would have gone for that. The name matters a lot, I think.

My wife wrote professionally and was always asking me questions like this, because she always liked to add offbeat details to her stories. Longer (correct) names for things seemed to be a plus in her book.

To your point:
Pediatric asthma and adult asthma is "prevalent" in Tunisia for example:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20122625
.... so I kinda overlooked it.
And apparently the impact of pediatric asthma on patients and families is more substantial there than in other parts of the world. So it really is a better choice in that sense.
