The way we classify somatic diseases changes rapidly. Whereas at one time examination by the naked eye was used as a guide and then microscopy was used to view a tissue's properties, diseases are increasingly being classified according to their molecular properties. Due to this 'molecular revolution' the diagnostic classification is increasingly predictive. Parallel to this development the boundaries between clinical disciplines are disappearing.
