Pathology Case Study: Left Flank Mass

Pathology Case Study: Left Flank Mass

This is a case study presented by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology in which a man complained of a mildly painful mass in his left flank that had been present for six years. Visitors can view both microscopic and gross descriptions, including images, and have 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 introduce or test students of soft tissue pathology.
