Pathology Case Study: Fever and Severe Rigors During Transfusion

Pathology Case Study: Fever and Severe Rigors During Transfusion

This is a case study presented by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology in which a 55-year-old woman with a history of breast cancer developed fever and severe rigors during a blood. Visitors are given the hospital course record and the blood bank laboratory evaluation, 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 transfusion pathology.
