“When you hear a gallop, you should think about a horse, not a zebra”. Sometimes, however, physicians are confronted with rare diseases (the zebras). FindZebra.com is a tool for generating hypotheses about rare disease diagnosis. It uses freely available high quality curated information on rare diseases and open source information retrieval software (Apache Lucene Solr) tailored to the problem.
FindZebra is intended primarily for physicians and other professionals concerned with diagnosis of rare diseases. Users seeking information related to personal conditions are urged to consult with a qualified physician. FindZebra cannot be held responsible for any consequences following its use.
