Creating an efficacious management plan for a patient with an undiagnosed disorder requires vigilance to presenting symptoms while attempting to predict future complications. This requires apt attention by both the clinician and the patient, which is often challenging to achieve. In this final segment of our case report, we present a theoretical treatment approach for our 26-year-old patient with an undiagnosed systemic disorder. Under the premise that, he is afflicted with some sort of connective tissue disease, we formulate a management plan targeting the best prophylactic measures for each of his symptoms. Only with a definitive diagnosis, however, will we be able to best focus our efforts to offsetting his disease progression. The following core competencies are addressed in this article: Patient care, Medical knowledge.
