Case Study Response Format 1. Introduce the Patient Symptoms, important information needed to analyze/discuss to determine a correct diagnosis. 2. Diagnose the Patient Using the information from the introduction, determine anatomical and physiological explanations for the symptoms that occurred and list a probable diagnosis noting any alternative explanations—make sure if you make a diagnosis you EXPLAIN your answer fully as well as why you belive this is the right diagnosis and what further information you may need to determine if it is a secondary diagnosis. Points awarded for logical reasoning, accuracy, ability to explain the anatomical condition/concepts. 3. Prognosis of the Patient Any illness or disease can have a long-lasting effect on the body. The prognosis is how that patient will need to proceed after diagnosis. This could mean the immediate future (until the disease resolves itself) or long term detriments from the illness (will their lifestyle, longevity change?). You must address the necessary steps the patient and his/her doctors must take to relieve the illness (medications, medical treatments, life-style changes).
