​"When you hear hoofbeats look for horses not zebras" --- Dr Theodore Woodward. Medical students have been taught for decades to look for the common ailment when a patient presents with symptoms. After all, rare diseases are rarely seen and the patient probably has a common problem.
However, in the world of rare diseases, many patients are overlooked and consequently spend years in consults before finally being diagnosed. For this reason, we asks that zebras always be considered.
