Description - Top 100 Diagnoses in Neurology by Ilya Kister
In arriving at a clinical diagnosis, think of the five most common findings (either historical, physical findings, or laboratory) found in a given disorder. If at least three of these five are not present in a given patient, the diagnosis is likely to be wrong. C. Miller Fisher Building on this precept from the great 20th-century neurologist C.
