Pathology Case Study:  Mental Status Changes and a Severe Occipital Headache

Pathology Case Study: Mental Status Changes and a Severe Occipital Headache

This is a case study presented by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology in which a 32-year-old man with symptoms of an upper respiratory infection presented himself to the hospital with mental status changes and a severe occipital headache of two days duration. Visitors are given both the microscopic description and radiology results, 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.
