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 22-year-old woman presents with the inability to smile or frown since waking up around 6 hours ago. She has difficulty in moving her eyes, complains of double vision, and finds it difficult to walk.
Close questioning reveals a mild diarrheal episode about 2 weeks ago, which resolved spontaneously. Her surgical and family histories are unremarkable.
She does not smoke, only drinks socially, and denies using recreational drugs. She is sexually active, with a single stable partner.
