Pathology Case Study:  Parasites in the Blood

Pathology Case Study: Parasites in the Blood

This is a case study presented by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology in which a 58-year-old presents to emergency care with "fever, malaise and bodyache noted after returning from a two-day trip to Brazil." Visitors are given the patient history and hospital course description, including images, and are given the opportunity to diagnose the patient. This is an excellent resource for students in the health sciences to familiarize themselves with using patient history and laboratory results to diagnose disease. It is also a helpful site for educators to use to introduce or test student learning in pathology and clinical microbiology. [ASC]
