Explanation: ... putting it the other way round.
There are quite a number of examples of use in a medical context, such as http://www.revoptom.com/archive/OGS/ogs_1205v6.htm
"Although this patient had no demographic or systemic risk factors for primary open angle glaucoma development, he exhibited all the diagnostic requirements for primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) as follows; (1) gonioscopically open anterior chamber angles; (2) elevated IOPs; (3) glaucomatous optic nerve head appearances; and (4) visual field defects consistent with a loss of retinal ganglion cells. Many classification schemes exist for grouping cases of glaucoma, and POAG is from the ***cause-based approach*** to glaucoma development, whereby the term ‘primary’ means that no known ocular or systemic disease appear to contribute to the disease process. Classification purists may argue that ***cause-based*** classification relates to IOP elevation rather than glaucoma development. Ideally, diagnostic confusion between cases with and without elevated presentation IOPs may be avoided by noting ‘high pressure type POAG’ where appropriate."
