Creator: DeFrances, Marie C.
Martinez, A. Julio (Augusto Julio)
Publisher: University of Pittsburgh. Dept. of Pathology
Description: This is a case study presented by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology in which 48-year-old Caucasian woman, with previous bill of good health, presents with a headache, neck stiffness and diplopia. Aside from the physical symptoms, the patient was also confused and appeared to have symptoms of short-term memory loss. Lab results, images from a CT scan of the patient’s brain, and microscopic images of a stereotactic biopsy are included in the case study. The “Final Diagnosis” section includes a detailed description of the condition from the contributing doctors. This is an excellent resource for students in the health sciences to familiarize themselves with using patient history and laboratory results to diagnose patient’s conditions.
