Surgical Sieve goes Underground

This image has been doing the social media rounds recently. It was published in the BMJ 2009 Christmas edition, and presents a complex differential diagnosis, well, in a complex way. Not entirely useful as a day-to-day aide-memoire, but a good way to categorise and approach abdominal pain. I especially liked the "Medical/Surgical Dividing Waters (changes with tide)".
