Clinical presentation (article structure)

Clinical presentation is one of the main subheadings in a standard article


The "Clinical presentation" subheading is located after "Epidemiology" and before "Pathology".


Information regarding typical clinical presentation for the entity described in the heading should be included by briefly (one sentence or short paragraph) stating relevant symptoms and signs. Basic pathology results can also be included.  

Complications intrinsic to the condition and complications that can lead to presentation (e.g. rupture of a berry aneurysm or pathological fracture through a bone lesion) usually fit best into this section. By contrast, complications that occur in relation to treatment should be placed in the treatment and prognosis section.
