This is the quotation from China social activities Mr Fang Zhouzi who is one of vocal voice in China against the traditional Chinese medicine in China.

He said : “TDM theories are not scientific.”
“They are just amalgam of superstition, metaphysics, philosophy and WITCHCRAFT.”
He has a website which contains many articles n the issue of TDM.


The misdiagnosed of a patient condution cause the delay of management and do harm to the patient.

As the first rule of being a doctor is ” DO NO HARM”, so misdiagnosis the illness of a patient is a CRIME.

We should strive to avoid misdiagnosis and my advice is if we are in doubt, we should order more test to confirm or to rule the diagnosis.

BUT first, it’s is vital to get a proper history from the patient. Then a thorough clinical examination and to arrive a diagnoses of a set of differential diagnosis and follow with the appropriate investigations to conform or to rule out investigation.

MIS-DIAGNOSIS a condition often arise from inadequate history taking, clinical examination and investigation.

Let take this case

55 year-old INDIAN man complain of epigastric pain a/w left arm pain.

The initial diagnosis by the GP is gastritis and gouty arthritis.

Careful history taking reveal that he is a smoker and do not have any previous history of gouty arthritis nor history of indigestion.

Symptoms of the pain is sudden, severe associated with sweating and nausea.

THIS GP obviously failed to get a proper history, given his age, his race  and risk factor, the GP could have entertained other important diagnosis such as Heart attack.

The patient had sought treatment at A&E department 1 day later after the pain remain unresolved.

At A&E, a ECG reveal ST elevation at V1 to V4 with the deep Q being formed.

THE MAN IS HAVING a HEART ATTACK – acute anterior-septal STEMI.

AND because the misdiagnosis by the GP, the patient can’t received a dose of thrombolytic therapy and thus he missed the opportunity of effective treatment



I don’t know what is happening to the doctors in Malaysia, and these day, everyone is taking about Houseman problems.

For outsiders (non doctors) may be confuse with the current trend.

It’s make them wonder, is houseman a doctor or not? Are the housemen part of the team ?

Apparently, housemen bashing is a favourite pastime of doctors which surprising some very junior MOs also joining the force of criticising.

Well, IMHO, it is just a trend showing the senior doctors are worrying about their jobs and they are being threaten by the influx of junior doctors (HOs)

Sure, they are definitely some bad apples (HOs)  and it’s the one that really give the Hos a bad name.

While every one pointing fingers toward the poor HOs,  we should asking ourself, are we a very good doctor?

Are we the super efficient and very knowledge HOs  in our housemanship day?

Are we have not making errors during my HOs ?

I DO, I still recollected that when I was a HO in medical, a young man who is a TB patient is in respiratory distress and I failed to put the patient in the acute bed and do the necessary things. My ass only saved by my specialist who managed to spot him when she doing her round. And she did remind me when I work with her.

Well, that is nothing really embarrassed about the blunders/mistakes that we make. The important thing is not to repeat it.

The juniors are really need to be taught and spoon feed. THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT  THE STUFF THAT THEY ARE REALLY NEED TO KNOW!!!

It’s definitely easier  to poke fun at your juniors and to certain extend, insult and be little their ignorance, but does it help you and the Ho in the long run.

Would it be easier just to point and guide their to the right direction?

HAVE WE FORGOTTEN THAT WE ONCE MET SOME GOOD MOs/SPECIALISTS which provide guidance to us during the dark days of Housemanship?

Love you you  (  LOVE U U )
