Helpful Hints

  • Some syndromes may have variations in spelling, like "shenjing shuairo" and "shenjing shuairuo." Try using the variants in different searches, or add the spelling variants to your search box by using "or" to connect the phrases, like "amok" OR "amuk" OR "ngamuk".
  • Depending on the syndrome, sometimes the location is helpful, and sometimes it limits what you will find. Try searching both ways to evaluate the results.
