epicrisis

epicrisis
a) A critical or analytical summing-up, especially of a medical case history.

It would be well if every practitioner would go over his list of patients from time to time and attempt an epicrisis in each one. He will often be surprised at what he finds, and his clinical judgment should be greatly improved...

b) Something that follows a crisis; a secondary crisis.
