Description: This “Transfusion Medicine” case study provided by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology is an excellent resource for students and instructors in the health science fields. This particular case involves the diagnosis of a 36-year-old male admitted to the hospital’s emergency room “in an altered state of consciousness.” Laboratory results including drug/alcohol screens, an MRI, CT scan and EEG were used to diagnose the patient in this case. The official diagnosis of this patient is provided in the “Final Diagnosis” section, and is accompanied by a discussion of the case and a short list of references. 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.
