Description: The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine's Department of Pathology has compiled a series of case studies to help both students and instructors. The patient in this particular case is a 64-year-old male with difficulty swallowing anything other than liquids. Patient history and both the gross and microscopic descriptions, which include images, are included in this case study. 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.
