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 45 year old man presents with excruciating pain, redness and swelling of his right big toe. There is no history of trauma.
His medical history is unremarkable, and he is not on any drugs. He smokes 1 to 2 cigarettes each day and drinks around 10 to 12 units of alcohol each week.
