On March 24, 2015, JAMA reprinted a charming one page article titled Why Physicians Err in Diagnosis.

After reviewing some common examples of diagnostic error, and presenting various types of error (cognitive bias, knowledge deficits and "social errors"), the author noted "mistakes from incomplete examination form the largest class."

The original date of publication was March 27, 1915.
