Rheumatology, oh joy, rheumatology

Dear Bloggers

Professor Stein joined us for two-days to do his famous teaching through case examples.

Being an expert in rheumatology, he was presented with various difficult cases covering rheumatology and general internal medicine. Cases, that were presented in English by the Japanese 1st, 2nd and 3rd year residents, included:

  • Infective endocarditis due to streptococcus bovis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis-systemic sclerosis overlap syndrome
  • Churg-Strauss syndrome
Professor Stein then instructed the residents how to take a rheumatologic physical examination and how to understand the problems of the history, physical examination, lab data and radiology in order to construct a problem list and assessment to decide on what would be the best way to proceed with further tests and / or treatment.

Here are some photos of his current visit.
