Resources for Dr. Brandhagen's case-study course assignment.

Introduction

Dr. Brandhagen has assigned you to write a case study or case report on a patient.  To quote from her syllabus:

"The patient may have an unusual condition or disease, abnormal or unusual laboratory results, or just simply be a case that interests you.

Examples of interesting topics might include patients with diseases such as various infections, cancer, chronic diseases such as emphysema or cirrhosis, unexpected antibodies or genetic disorders."
