Explain why you think the patient presented the symptoms described.

To prepare:

By Day 1 of this week, you will be assigned to a specific case study for this Case Study Assignment. Please see the “Announcements” section of the classroom for your assignment from your Instructor.

The Assignment

Develop a 1- to 2-page case study analysis in which you:

  • Explain why you think the patient presented the symptoms described.
  • Identify the genes that may be associated with the development of the disease.
  • Explain the process of immunosuppression and the effect it has on body systems.

 

Hello students! 

Please note the assignment for week 2 and make sure to follow the rubric.  If you have a high matching please email me the reason and I will review. 

WEEK 2: 

(No more than 2-3 pages of content are allowed for your case study which does not include you cover page and resources) 

Scenario 2:  A 30-year-old male presents to the clinic with a chief complaint of abdominal pain and cramping with mucus in his stool worsening over the last few weeks.  He denies any fever but has had an increase in fatigue.  He reports a weight loss of 10 pounds in the last month.  His family history reveals his brother was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease.  His labs reveal an elevated ESR, normal B12, and negative stool testing.  He is sent for a plain abdominal x-ray which was normal.  

Develop a 1- to 2-page case study analysis in which you:

  • Explain why you think the patient presented the symptoms described.
  • Identify the genes that may be associated with the development of the disease.
  • Explain the process of immunosuppression and the effect it has on body systems.

THOUGHTS TO CONSIDER IN WORKING WITH YOUR CASE:

  • *Remember when you think of genes do not just think of congenital anomalies. Think environment, disease that would or could specifically modify the gene and cause mutation. 
  • *When you have an injury to a gene why or how does this cause immunosuppression? If one is immunocompromised what as a provider should you do? Consider?
