We present a method for a knowledge-base compression, restricted to rules of specific form, which uses a learning from examples facility. A large medical knowledge-base, which was a source of more than 5000 training examples, was compressed to 3% of its original size. Most of the extracted rules turned out to be quite meaningful from the medical point of view.
