Review the HematologyCaseStudy-1.docx

Create a list of three to five differential diagnosis (or you may develop a VINDICATE differential list) based on the patient’s presentation, HPI, and PE.

Explain, for each differential diagnosis, what in the presentation, HPI, or PE led to your decision to select the differential diagnosis that you chose.

Select the most likely diagnosis you think the patient could have and select a second possible diagnosis.

Create a pathophysiology flow chart (you may use either an image format or written words). In that flow chart compare and contrast these two diagnoses documenting how the two diagnoses are similar in looking at their symptoms, physical examination and labs, and document how the two diagnoses are different.

Also answer these additional questions:

Analyze and write a brief paragraph or list indicating what your differential diagnoses list could include (list all other possible diagnoses) if your patient is (1) 79 years old or if the patient were (2) a 25 year old patient who is pregnant. Use evidence based information with citations to support your answers.

Save your flow chart to a file type that can be opened and viewed by your course instructor, that links the case patient’s symptom presentation and your chosen diagnosis.
