Multiple disorders are a daily problem in medical diagnosis and treatment, while most expert systems make an implicit assumption that only single disorder occurs in a single patient. In our paper, we show the need for performing multiple disorders diagnosis, and investigate a way of using inductive rules in our Case-based Reasoning System for diagnosing multiple disorder cases. We applied our approach to two medical casebases taken from real world applications demonstrating the promise of the research. The method also has the potential to be applied to other multiple fault domains, e.g. car failure diagnosis.
