There has been growing interest and activity in the area of medical decision making, especially in the last 20 years. As it has been pointed out by many authors [Adl86, Hay90, San92, Wan91], fuzzy set theory and neural nets have a number of properties that make them suitable for formalizing the uncertain information upon which medical diagnosis and treatment is usually based.
Generalizing the earlier results of the ﬁrst author [Ekl92], we provide a formal model of this process using the neuro-fuzzy theory, and illustrate our approach on a two-symptom artiﬁcial disease.
