enucleation 1640s, from verb enucleate (1540s), from L. enucleatus "pure, clean," pp. of enucleare "to lay open, explain in detail," lit. “to remove the kernel of” (see EX- (Cf. ex-) + NUCLEUS (Cf. nucleus)). Mostly figurative in Latin (the notion is of getting at the "core" of some matter); until mid-19c. advances in science and medicine, usually figurative in English.
