Pathology Case Study: Two Weeks in Africa

Pathology Case Study: Two Weeks in Africa

The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine's Department of Pathology has compiled a series of case studies to help both students and instructors. In this clinical microbiology case, a 16-year-old male developed symptoms of fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting after returning to the United States from a two-week trip to Sudan. Laboratory test results and information from a microscopic examination are included in the case study. Clicking on the "Final Diagnosis" section will take you to a detailed discussion of the patient's condition from the contributing doctor. A list of references, which students could use to get more background information, is also included at the bottom of the section.
