Title: Pathology Case Study: Severe Abdominal Pain
Url: http://path.upmc.edu/cases/case190.html
Creator: Davie, James
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 16 year old boy returns after a diagnosis of presumptive gastroenteritis. During his return visit he complained of unremitting severe sharp, crampy pain in the lower abdomen, with occasional radiation in the back. Visitors are given admission data, surgical notes, gross and microscopic descriptions, 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 gastrointestinal pathology.
