Title: Pathology Case Study: Shortness of Breath Presenting as Atypical Pneumonia
Url: http://path.upmc.edu/cases/case194.html
Creator: Callahan, Debra L.
Publisher: University of Pittsburgh. Dept. of Pathology
Description: This is a case study presented by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology in which a 35-year-old African American woman with a history of diabetes, hypertension, and obesity presents with shortness of breath. Visitors are given admission and treatment data along with gross and microscopic description, including images in order to give them 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.
