NEJM-CPC case studies

The New England Journal of Medicine [NEJM] publishes interesting presentations of common diseases and unusual cases in the Clinical pathology Conference [CPC] series. These cases are educational and can pose diagnostic challenges even to the expert physicians at the Massachusetts General Hospital [MGH].

Using the clinical features of these cases you can evaluate your own diagnostic skills, compare and calibrate your diagnostic performance to that of the physicians at MGH. If you are registered with Isabel, you can use the diagnosis reminder system and expand the list of likely suspects. Click through to the synoptic and/or detailed diagnosis specific and up to date knowledge from Isabel's database of textbooks and journals.
