A much-quoted aphorism in medicine is “Listen to your patient and they are telling you the diagnosis”. Most often, the history reveals the diagnosis and sometimes, it is all that is required to make the diagnosis. Unfortunately, in this age of modern technology-based medicine, many busy clinicians fail to get a proper history and miss important dots in the history that connect to the diagnosis. This is clinically relevant, as a specific diagnosis completely alters the nature of treatment and thereby improves prognosis.
