Pathology Case Study: Right Flank Pain

Pathology Case Study: Right Flank Pain

This is a case study presented by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology in which a 74-year-old male smoker presents with a month-long history of right flank pain. Visitors are given both microscopic and gross descriptions, immunohistochemistry, including images, and 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 genitourinary pathology.
