Alphabetic Listings of Tests, Signs, Symptoms and Syndromes

Capitalize only the proper name, but not the word “test,” or “sign.” AAMT rules show no apostrophe, though dictators often use the possessive form. You will find alphabetic listings of tests, signs, symptoms, syndromes, and procedures under those headings in a medical dictionary.
