	abstract     = {The medical domain is blessed with a magnitude of terminological resources of various
characteristics, sizes, structure, depth and breadth of descriptive power, granularity etc.
In this domain a particularly interesting and difficult entity type are signs, symptoms and
findings which to a large extend are expressed in a periphrastic manner, sometimes by the use
of figurative or metaphorical language, or contextualized
using a wealth of vague variant expressions. We hypothesize therefore that no
major official terminology source alone can accommodate for the variation and complexity
present in real text data, such as electronic medical records, notes or health related documents.
In this paper we evaluate the content of the three largest medical control vocabularies available for Swedish on extracted reference symptom lists and initiate a discussion on how
we should proceed in order to accommodate for increased coverage on similar genres.
