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 63-year-old woman presents with melena for 3 weeks, and fatigue and malaise for 2 weeks. No other symptoms are present. Her medical, surgical and drug histories are unremarkable, and there is no family history of bleeding disorders or gastrointestinal malignancies. She does not smoke, and only drinks socially.
