If you are an avid reader of medical narratives, you may have come across Dr. Lisa Sanders’ invitation to participate in solving the diagnostic dilemma of a 76-year-old woman suffering from chronic weakness, fatigue and mood swings posted in yesterday’s New York Times.
Over 500 readers, both lay and medically trained, weighed in on the differential diagnosis over the course of the day. I submitted my two cents as comment #358.
The resolution of the case appears in today’s Times at this link.
You can read my final thoughts about the clinical case presentation here.
Hats off to Dr. Lisa Sanders and Times columnist Tara Parker-Pope for putting together this thought-provoking diagnostic exercise!
