LEON-BARUA, Raúl. Proposal to improve the nomenclature, classification and diagnosis of diseases, taking into account their symptoms and signs, syndromes and determinant factors. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2011, vol.22, n.2, pp. 89-92. ISSN 1018-130X.
The disorder that has been produced, through time, in the nomenclature and classification of diseases is considered, at international level, a clinical problem that should be solved. On the other hand, to diagnose does not only consist in giving a conventional name to the disease that affects a patient, and also not only in differentiating it from similar ones. In this paper, we present a proposal to improve the nomenclature, classification and diagnosis of diseases, taking into account their symptoms and syndromes, signs, and determinant factors. (Rev Med Hered 2011;22: 89-92).
