Welcome to these unique case reports that provide
not only the medical record but also image files that allow a fluent discussion
among world high altitude experts that show the complexity of medical diagnosis and treatment at high altitude.
The first message sent to a high altitude list
gives the medical history and the results of the tests. After the comments
we then publish the follow ups with the comments. This way all experts participate by learning from the colleagues and providing
themselves their highly valuable opinions.
The list welcomes any physician that wants to
participate so please send us an e-mail
stating your interest and we will include you
in the forthcoming cases.
