Pathology Case Study: Dyspnea and Malaise

Pathology Case Study: Dyspnea and Malaise

This is a case study presented by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology, which describes a 78-year-old man who was hospitalized 4 weeks before his death with a history of over 3 months of increasing dyspnea and malaise. Visitors are given clinical history, postmortem examination data, and histology, including images, and are also given the opportunity to diagnose the patient. A "Final Diagnosis" section provides a discussion of the findings as well as references. 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 neuropathology.
