Hickam’s Dictum

Lecture no. 17 from the course: Medical School for Everyone: Grand Rounds Cases

Hickam’s Dictum

Taught by Professor Roy Benaroch | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Health,Fitness & Nutrition Courses

Sometimes, a single patient can have more than one disease (a medical “philosophy” called Hickam’s Dictum). This idea is illustrated by a middle-aged woman who can’t stop vomiting. The road to determining her interconnected diagnoses is a harrowing story that illustrates why doctors always need to stay on their toes.
