Url: http://path.upmc.edu/cases/case147.html
Creator: Johnson, Douglas R.
Publisher: University of Pittsburgh. Dept. of Pathology
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 in the health sciences field. The patient in this case is a 24 year-old man “admitted for acute worsening of his respiratory status and liver failure.” The patient’s history includes end-stage restrictive lung disease and end-stage liver disease. The “Gross Description” and “Microscopic Description” sections provide key information and images that contributed to the patient’s diagnosis. Clicking on the “Final Diagnosis” provides a thorough explanation of the diagnosis and illness from the contributing doctors.
