Pathology Case Study: Acute Onset of Epistaxis

Pathology Case Study: Acute Onset of Epistaxis

This is a case study presented by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology, which describes a 77-year-old white male who presented to the emergency department with persistent nose bleeding. Visitors are given patient history, laboratory findings, treatment data, and are given the opportunity to diagnose the patient. A "Final Diagnosis" section provides a discussion of the findings as well as references. 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 hematopathology.
