Description: This is a case study presented by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology in which a 21-year-old man experienced an episode of seizures. The patient’s medical history and detailed description of her symptoms after admittance to the hospital are included in the “Patient History” section. Results from a cranial MRI along with microscopic description and images from a frontal lobectomy are provided here to help aid in understanding the diagnosis. The “Final Diagnosis” section contains the attending doctor’s final diagnosis of the patient with commentary, and a detailed pathology. References are also included in this section. 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 knowledge of neuropathology.
