One major problem the health sector is facing is the shortage of medical expertise in medical science. They are unable to provide good medical services to their people and patients also find a huge queue in hospitals particularly in government hospitals. It has become of great concern to find a lasting solution to the problem of long queues in hospitals. An A.I knowledge based system has been found to be one of the solutions to the above problems since it help to diagnosis difference types of diseases. One major problem in medical diagnostic is precision and accuracy. The traditional method of medical diagnostic is characterized with the aforementioned problems. The advent of computer has led to the development of several algorithms and technologies to ensure accuracy and precision, one of such technologies is fuzzy logics which is a branch of artificial intelligence. The proposed medical diagnostic system is developed using Visual Prolog Programming language. The proposed system will go a long way in bringing precision and certainty to the overall method of medical diagnose and assist medical personnel in the tedious and complication task of diagnosing and further provide a scheme that will assist medical personnel.
