What's the best diagnostic evaluation of night sweats?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
There is no single best evidence-based approach to the diagnostic evaluation of night sweats, given the limited number of studies on the subject. A detailed history, however, does appear to be the most important initial diagnostic tool (strength of recommendation [SOR]: C, based on usual practice and clinical opinion). No clinical trials have directly studied symptomatic relief of night sweats alone.
