Last Reviewed on March 5, 2009

  • What a name! Diagnosaurus: a mixture of diagnosis (what the program is
    about) and thesaurus (implying an encyclopedic nature) and a dinosaur  
    (giving a sense of power) and the icon/logo is a dinosaur!
  • This is essentially an ebook that lists the differential diagnosis for a given
    single symptom.
  • The great thing about it is that it is absolutely free.
  • The book is published by Mcgraw-Hill and made available for the PDA by
    Unbound Medicine.

You can search for symptom,
diseases, and by organ system.

Each condition is having a
DDx list and some diseases
coupled with etiology list.

The problem is that it is
designed for medicine not
pediatrics so you get things
such as temporal arteritis and dementia and
malignancy as
a cause of failure to thrive!

Some lists could have been
better and cross linking
is not thorough.
