ABSTRACT
The article presents information about the website www.simulconsult.com, which describes itself as a "medical decision support software" that allows doctors and other medical professionals to combine clinical and laboratory findings and get a simultaneous consult about diagnosis. The searching is reasonably intuitive. One enters the age and sex, and then can add clinical feature and test results, either having searched for them or from an alphabetical or category based pick list. The package available is "neurological syndromes," which is described as a beta version of inherited and congenital problems.
