Pathology Case Study:  Nausea, Vomiting and Hydrocephalus

Pathology Case Study: Nausea, Vomiting and Hydrocephalus

This is a case study presented by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology in which a 9-year-old girl has nausea, vomiting and hydrocephalus. Visitors are given both the radiologic and microscopic descriptions, 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 neuropathology.
