    This sounds like exam to me, I would not give credit for ROS based on this.

    Using 97 DG, I would credit "general appearance of patient" under constitutional (1 bullet)

    Default 1995 exam guidelines

    Under 1995 guidelines you would also get "constitutional" for this statement on exam.

    I agree the statement, as you have listed it, is not ROS but exam.
