Look at the normal side first

 

We are blessed with two of many aspects of our anatomy – legs, eyes, nostrils and nipples to name the four most important. (maybe not…)

This comes in very handy when trying to identify anomalies, as one can simply compare the pathological side with the normal one. Look at the normal side first in order to get a reference – what’s normal for the patient – and to steady your nerves a little in exams, then examine the side of interest and see how it compares.
