Figure 1: A pathway from disease description to cure. The first recognition of a distinct disease process often begins with clinical observations in single or small groups of patients. These case descriptions are then recognized as a new disease process, triggering a positive feedback loop of modes of establishing diagnosis and treatment attempts with refinements of a pathophysiologic understanding of the disease. With critical analysis of long-term outcomes based on treatment strategies, the ability to recognize, diagnose and treat the disease evolves. With optimal outcomes, cure is achieved
