Pathology Case Study: Acute Leukemia, Nodular Skin Lesions and Splenomegaly

The Department of Pathology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center has compiled a wide range of pathology case studies to aid students and instructors in learning. In this case, a 22-year-old patient was diagnosed with lymphoblastic leukemia after receiving treatment for a rib injury. Gross and microscopic descriptions and images are provided along with molecular and immunohistologic information to aid in understanding the final diagnosis. In addition to the official findings in the "Final Diagnosis" section, the patient's treatment plan is also included in the section titled "Therapy." Students entering health sciences fields will find this resource very helpful, as it provides experience with patient history, lab results and diagnostics.
