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 50 year old postmenopausal woman presents with a red, swollen left knee which is painful to touch.
