THE IMPORTANCE OF THE INDIVIDUAL APPROACH TO THE PATIENT ON THE EXAMPLE OF CLINICAL CASE
Any disease is the result of the interaction of pathologic process and the patient's personality, so the basis of optimal treatment strategy is physician and patient partnership in the fight for recovery and/or the most beneficial progress of chronic diseases with the highest possible quality and life expectancy. The implementation of this postulate is only possible with correct diagnosis, which presents some difficulties in this case. Due to individual approach we were able to find the optimal treatment and not to harm the patient. We recommend for all who works in practical medicine to put into the basis of the treatment, first of all, the patient's personality.
