Week 9 case study
CASE STUDY 1: Headaches A 20-year-old male complains of experiencing intermittent headaches. The headaches diffuse all over the head, but the greatest intensity and pressure occur above the eyes and spreads through the nose, cheekbones, and jaw.
The Case Study Assignment should be in the Episodic/Focused SOAP Note format rather than the traditional narrative style format. (attached)
· Consider what history would be necessary to collect from the patient in the case study you were assigned.
· Consider what physical exams and diagnostic tests would be appropriate to gather more information about the patient’s condition. How would the results be used to make a diagnosis?
at least five
possible conditions that may be considered in a differential diagnosis for the patient.
· Use APA format and validate the diagnosis with references (updated on the last 5 years)
· Acute Sinusitis
For the differential diagnosis I want you to consider:
· Common cold
· Allergy rhinitis
· Migraine without aura
· Tensional headache.
· temporomandibular joint or jaw pain
