Symptoms - disseases


(alexander) #1

hi. are there mappings between vocabularies for symptoms and those for disseases? I have looked into the dissease ontology but such mappings are not there. all they have is just the class symptoms but no relation to specific disseases.

@alexgarciac: We do not make a distinction between diseases, symptoms, signs and diagnoses. These are all descriptions of conditions of the human organism, even though they differ in detail and independent diagnostic support.

And I am not aware of a class “Symptom”. All these concepts are of the Domain “Condition”.

Does that help?
