Pathology Case Study: Cushing's Syndrome

Pathology Case Study: Cushing's Syndrome

The Department of Pathology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center has compiled a wide range of pathology case studies to aid students and instructors in the medical/health science field. This particular case involves a 41 year-old woman experiencing the following symptoms for a period of 18 months: fatigue, weakness, lethargy, and decreased concentration. The patient's history, description of CT scans, and images from histological examinations, which contributed to the conclusive diagnosis, are all provided here for your review. The contributing doctors provide a detailed discussion of the patient's condition in the "Final Diagnosis" section. Students will find this resource especially helpful, as it provides experience with patient history, lab results, and diagnostics.
