The Department of Pathology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center has compiled a wide range of pathology case studies to aid students and instructors in the medical/health science field. This specific case involves the evaluation of a fifty-seven year old female patient with an anterior mediastinal mass. From the patient's history we are aware of family history of Zollinger Ellison syndrome, and gastrinoma. It is also known that the patient has hyperparathyroidism and a 2 cm prolactin secreting pituitary adenoma. Clinical laboratory data, FNA cytology results, gross and microscopic descriptions, and images are all included to aid in the diagnosis. The official diagnosis is also included, which allows students to check their own conclusions. This is an excellent resource for providing students experience with patient history, lab results and diagnostics.
