An annual meeting favorite, the Clinical Case Puzzlers sessions feature difficult patient cases presented to a panel of master clinicians, pathologists, and radiologists who then dissect the case, share their strategies for understanding it, and arrive at a diagnosis. This year’s program includes three sessions covering pulmonary infections, airways disease, and diffuse lung disease.
“The Clinical Case Puzzlers are an opportunity for the presenters—who may be experienced practicing clinicians or young fellows in training—to share their cases and gauge their decisions against a panel of renowned authorities in their fields,” said Anthony G. Saleh, MD, FCCP, Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine, Weill Cornell Medical College, and Director of the Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship at New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital who will serve as chair and moderator for all three sessions.
After each case is presented, Dr. Saleh said the panel will discuss differential diagnoses, suggested testing, and outcomes of the cases, touching along the way on topics such as disease mimickers, overlapping syndromes, and rare presentations.
“As the panel dissects each case, it’s also a chance for people in the audience to think about what they would have done in each case and to see if they agree or disagree with the choices and conclusions of the panelists,” Dr. Saleh said. “Not everybody has instant access to consult with world-class experts—it’s one thing to read a case study in textbooks or journals, but watching in real time as the panel interacts and evaluates cases is priceless.”
