Pathology Case Study: Headaches, Lethargy and a Sellar/Suprasellar Mass

This neuropathology case study, provided by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology, is an excellent learning tool for students and instructors in the health science fields. In this case, a 16-year-old female presents with headaches, lethargy and visual disturbances. Visitors are shown MRI images of the patient's brain, along with the pathological findings and microscopic images. The "Final Diagnosis" section is accompanied by a discussion of the contributing doctor's findings and a list of references. This is an excellent resource for students in the health sciences to familiarize themselves with using patient history and laboratory results to diagnose patient's conditions.
