Core conditions

A ‘Core condition/presentation’ tag has been added to around 100 different diseases and 100 common presentations. We chose which to badge based on appearance in usually at least two of the following:


This leads to us flagging around 10% of entries as core. Of course many people have diseases that are not on this list, but often we have flagged parent conditions while leaving details of many ‘children’: so Glomerulonephritis is flagged, but not IgA nephropathy; Heart Failure is flagged, but not HOCM or Takotsubo cardiomyopathy.
