It's a small change, but we wanted to let you know that when you click on a Case on one of the 4 Case of the Week pages (by clinical history, by diagnosis, by category/subspecialty with diagnosis, by category/subspecialty without diagnosis), the Case will now appear in a new window.  We made this change to improve consistency across our website.

19 June 2017: Joke of the Month

Joke of the Month, submitted by Dr. Ruiz:
---------------------------------------------------
Steve (someone i just met): So you're a doctor?

Me: Yes, I'm a pathologist.

Steve: And what's that?

Me: I examine cells with a microscope, mostly from tissue samples but also from needle aspirations or frozen sections. I give a diagnosis of a tumor or inflammation, so the attending doctor can provide proper treatment. I also interpret special studies that give prognostic information for cancer, and helps choose specific therapies for some illnesses. I also do autopsies.

Steve: So, you do autopsies...
