You’re looking at an interactive case study from Prognosis: Your Diagnosis (one of four distinct learning formats available in Clinical Odyssey). Try it out, and have fun improving your clinical skills.
A 21-year-old woman presents with intermittent pain in her right thigh for six weeks. The pain is present throughout the day, does not disappear at night, is not aggravated by movement or changes in posture, and is not alleviated by paracetamol or NSAIDs.
There is no history of urinary or bowel symptoms. Her medical, surgical, and gynecological histories are unremarkable. She does not smoke, but drinks around 4 to 6 units of alcohol per week, and consumes marijuana occasionally. She denies using hard drugs.
