Example of a Specialty Heading
Note the See Also terms that refer to the related disease terms
- A few headings marked as SPEC, such as Pediatrics and Geriatrics, have no corresponding disease terms
- In these cases, the SPEC term must be used as a synonym for general works on "pediatric diseases" and "geriatric diseases"
