Pathology Case Study: Fevers

Pathology Case Study: Fevers

The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine's Department of Pathology has compiled a series of case studies to help both students and instructors in the health sciences field. In this case, a 68-year-old male patient experiencing fevers, chills, an associated non-productive cough, and weight loss was admitted to the hospital for examination. The "Gross Description," "Microscopic Description," and " Microbiology" sections provide key information and images that contributed to the patient's diagnosis. Clicking on the "Final Diagnosis" provides a thorough explanation of the diagnosis and treatment from the contributing doctors.
