I just started facilitating a group of medical students in their final basic science block, block 6–covering neurology, neuropathology, and psychiatry. They decided to call themselves the “Cranial Nerds”. They went through the first case slowly and thoroughly, we ran out of time sort of for the second case, but the differential diagnoses were similar.
In putting together a list of differential diagnoses, it is wise to lump them into aetological categories. Musculoskeletal, Neurological, Infectious, Neoplastic, Metabolic, Congenital, Developmental. etc.
