Neuropathology Cases from the DHMC Files

The following cases are modelled after the great collection of cases reported online at Brain Pathology ( Displayed on this site are interesting neuropathology cases presented for teaching purposes from the Dartmouth Medical School Department of Pathology. I'd also like to acknowledge Dr. John Woosley from UNC for showing me how to put together the interactive format cases and for providing the template. For Dartmouth folks that would like to contribute a case just contact Dr. Brent Harris to discuss the case.
