Url: http://path.upmc.edu/cases/case181.html
Creator: Graur, Octavia
Lee, Robert E.
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 39-year-old man has died from lung abscess after treatment failed, and an autopsy was authorized. Visitors are given the microscopic and gross descriptions, including images, and are given the opportunity to identify the cause of death. 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 autopsy pathology.
