Pathology Case Study: Mass in the Left Breast

Pathology Case Study: Mass in the Left Breast

This is a case study presented by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology in which a 71-year-old woman has shown a density in her left breast in a mammogram, which then doubled in size over the course of a year. Visitors are given the microscopic description, including images, and are given 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 gynecologic pathology.
