Pathology Case Study:  New Brain Lesion

Pathology Case Study: New Brain Lesion

This is a case study presented by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology in which a woman had a rapidly progressing left hemiparesis and a brain lesion. Visitors are given both the microscopic description, images, and patient history to provide the users with 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 neuropathology.
