Abstract

The preceding discussion is an attempt to stress anatomy in the diagnosis of coma. By localizing the offending lesion, the physician can apply the appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic measures more adeptly. Because physicians are also frequently asked to prognosticate, I have tried to summarize the work of Plum and Posner in their study of the outcome of patients presenting in coma. The primary care physician is encouraged to plan at least for the basics in case he or she is faced with a comatose patient.
