Thanks for sharing. This is a powerful story but a very negative ending as it gives the impression that the poor clinician is destined to miss these cases over and over again. It would be more beneficial/positive if it ended with something he could do to avoid making this mistake again such as using a diagnosis check list, for example, which would put Aortic Aneurysm/Dissection high on its list of suggestions. The way this is portrayed is likely to scare anybody witless!
Regards
Jason

Subject: Annals of Internal Medicine Cartoon on Misdiagnosis

Some on this list may be more familiar than others with the use of cartoons in medical training. I’ve just loaded a powerful story, told in cartoon form, concerning a misdiagnosis. The cartoon originally appeared in the March 5, 2013, Annals of Internal Medicine.

It is being used on the SIDM website with permissions of both AIM and the author.

The end notes also point the reader toward other material and information on the use of cartoons in this field.
