Approach to History Taking and Physical Examination in Liver and Biliary Disease

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The cause of jaundice can be identified in approximately 85% of patients after careful history and physical examination and review of standard laboratory data. Although detailed and specific data is available through the laboratory and imaging, the art of history taking and a physical examination which includes inspection, percussion, auscultation, and palpation, can give the experienced clinician a probable cause of jaundice at the time of the patient's visit.
