The authors of September's Clinical Case Study provided us with two 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.

  1. When is obtaining stool cultures in previously healthy children warranted?
  2. Would this patient benefit from a platelet transfusion?
