Case History Taking and Differential Diagnosis

Case History taking forms the first major component in the process of arriving at a diagnosis. Taking a concise and focused case history requires good listening, interpersonal and analytical skills. In most cases the clinician would have developed their differential diagnosis on case history alone. Subsequent clinical examination and further diagnostic procedures must be based on the identification of emerging themes that will eventually give rise to the most probable diagnosis(es). The process of focused case history inquiry and the development of differential diagnosis is demonstrated in a unique and innovative approach by analyzing the progress of real clinical encounters.
