Abstract: Symptoms and signs are the backbone of diagnosis and central in the assessment of success of treatment. Prior to the development of techniques of investigation, the physician relied solely on symptoms and signs. Even today, symptoms and signs still play an important part in the family doctor's practice, more so than for the hospital-based physician. Symptoms and signs are also the reason why the patient consults his doctor in the first place (barring in the practice of preventive medicine).
