DrFungus Case of the Month

Diagnosing and treating unique cases can be challenging.  MSGERC members have established “Case of the Month” as a venue to share interesting case presentations, diagnostic workups, treatment and clinical course.  To provide a Case of the Month, please see the page “Case of the Month” to view current offerings and to obtain the template for cases. We ask that you include images as separate, numbered jpegs.
