Title: Pathology Case Study: Anemia, Thrombocytopenia and Renal Insufficiency
Url: http://path.upmc.edu/cases/case243.html
Creator: Najjar, Hazim
Publisher: University of Pittsburgh. Dept. of Pathology
Description: This clinical immunology 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 68-year-old female admitted due to “worsening anemia, thrombocytopenia, and renal insufficiency.” Additional information on the patient’s history as well as laboratory results including urine protein electrophoresis, blood tests, and a biopsy 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. It is also a helpful site for educators to use to introduce or test student knowledge of clinical immunology.
