  • Marius Fieschi


Nine contexts have been defined for this application; nine general ‘clinical frameworks’ for promoting diagnostic hypotheses that Pople (1982) calls intermediary pathological specifications which characterize and manipulate the patient’s symptomatology. Each context bears the name of the symptom, the syndrome or the condition which describes the clinical state of the patient as follows:
  1. 1.

    painful context

  2. 2.

    distress context

  3. 3.

    congenital anaemia context

  4. 4.

    chronic anaemia context

  5. 5.

    infectious context

  6. 6.

    encephalopathy context

  7. 7.

    change of general state context

  8. 8.

    iatrogenic context

  9. 9.

    cholestatis context.
