Click here to find the latest Student Discussion Document for March's Clinical Case Study from JoDell E. Whittington, Hoai D. Pham, Melinda Procter, David G. Grenache, and Rong Mao.

Dr. Mao provided us with three exclusive questions that will not appear in the published version of the Case. We'd love to hear your answers to these questions in the comments section.

  • What laboratory tests should be considered for this patient?
  • In the case of an affected patient, what should be considered when collecting the specimen for testing?
  • What is the molecular basis of the condition?
