A young woman lies dying in the ICU bleeding, jaundiced, incoherent and none of her doctors know what is killing her. And yet mistakes are made, diagnoses missed, symptoms or tests misunderstood. Through dramatic stories of patients with baffling symptoms, Sanders portrays the absolute necessity and surprising difficulties of getting the patient s story, the challenges of the physical exam, the pitfalls of doctor-to-doctor communication, the vagaries of tests, and the near calamity of diagnostic errors.
