Hi Chase,

I just ran a search in the bundled UMLS dictionary and the full term and cui does existfrom
SnomedCT and NCI, with tui T007.

The Dictionary Lookup that you are using filters out terms that don't have tui codes registered
in the resources/org/apache/ctakes/dictionary/lookup/LookupDesc_Db.xml file.  Edit that file
and add "T007" to the value list for "disorderTuis" property as below:
<property key="disorderTuis" value="T019,T020,T037,T046,T047,T048,T049,T050,T190,T191,T007"/>
For <lookupConsumer className="org.apache.ctakes.dictionary.lookup.ae.UmlsToSnomedDbConsumerImpl">

One will probably either need a custom dictionary or some additional code that will consume
only the more specific matches.

I hope that helps.
