Building Differential in VisualDx Guides Wart Diagnosis

plantar_wart_85684.jpgA student at the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University shares how he used VisualDx to build and narrow the differential for his elderly patient with a foot issue.

"Elderly man with exophytic scaly nodule on plantar foot for 6 months. Lesion is painful, not itchy. On closer inspection, there were small black dots, consistent with a common wart. Visualdx dermatology differential builder helped narrow the differential diagnosis."
