Abstract

This paper presents an expert system for differential diagnosis of erythemato-squamous diseases incorporating decisions made by three classification algorithms: nearest neighbor classifier, naive Bayesian classifier and voting feature intervals-5. This tool enables doctors to differentiate six types of erythemato-squamous diseases using clinical and histopathological parameters obtained from a patient. The program also gives explanations for the classifications of each classifier. The patient records are also maintained in a database for further references. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
