RESUMEN CLINICO:

Se trata de paciente femenino de 45 años diagnosticada como cistadenoma papilar linfomatoso y ademas linfadenitis crónica inespecíficada reportado en (fecha).

En (fecha) se realiza una excisión-biopsia de región parotidea derecha y esta reporta CARCINOMA MUCOEPIDERMOIDE DE BAJO GRADO DE MALIGNIDAD. El paciente fue tratado con radioterapia en la Clinica CTR. Presentó 2 recidivas después de la RT.
--------------------
Estoy un poco dudosa, pues inicialmente empecé traduciendo el término como discharge summary lo cual correspondería a epicrisis en español, sin embargo hasta después me percaté que el término que usan es resumen médico.

Ahora considerando que en el documento se relata el avance de la enfermedad, el medicamento suministrado y examenes (tomografias) hechos a la paciente me gustaria saber si estaría correcto traducirlo como:

i) Medical summary/report, o
ii) Discharge summary
iii) o ???
