This story makes a very good case for the use of computer-based diagnostic
decision support systems. I entered the findings into the one with which I
work, DXplain, and Schnitzler's came in ranked #1 I did not try Isabel, but
would not be surprised if it also had the correct diagnosis near the top.
Much easier than spending the reported "hours" in PubMed that the hero
expended to arrive at the correct diagnosis.
