Pathology Case Study: Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and Renal Failure

Pathology Case Study: Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and Renal Failure

This is a case study presented by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology in which a 61-year-old man with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is admitted with renal failure. Results from laboratory tests along with a microscopic description and images of test results are provided here. The "Final Diagnosis" section contains the attending doctor's final diagnosis of the patient with commentary, and a detailed pathology. References are also included in this section. 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 knowledge of renal pathology.
