The masterpiece of medicine is the cure, and comes about as a result of the clinician’s skill in applying their knowledge with the aid of diagnostic tools. When the presenting symptoms of two different diseases are similar, this may lead to erroneous diagnoses and treatments to the detriment of the patient’s health.
