Biol 107 Case Study Assignment
(Worth 60 points)
In this exercise, you will be given the opportunity to solve a medical mystery.
Below are three descriptions of three different illnesses. Each illness is caused by a type of bacteria (they are NOT caused by viruses).
Choose ONE of the three cases described below. Then determine which type of bacteria caused that illness and complete the assignment (sections A, B, and C) by following the outlined guidelines:
A. (4 points) Write a typed, well-constructed (complete sentences, proper grammar) report of not more than three double spaced pages.
B. (8 points each) Answer each of the 6 questions below- make sure you devote at least one paragraph to answering each one.
1. What microorganism causes this disease?
2. What is your diagnosis, and what features of the case were critical to your diagnosis?
3. How is this disease transmitted?
4. How is the disease treated?
5. What symptoms might the patient develop if the disease is not treated?
6. What is the prognosis with treatment?
C. (8 points) Include a reference section with at least 4 citations including at least one published reference. Use resources such as microbiology text books, encyclopedias, HCC Library databases (e.g. Pro Quest Biology, Pro Quest Nursing) journals and online medical and government (ie CDC) sites to research these questions.
Indicate the source of information you found in ACS or MLA format.
Do not forget to include in-text citations every time you borrow someone’s idea, even if you paraphrased it. Be sure to include the publication date.
Comment on the reliability of the source (why you think this source is reliable) under each reference in a bibliography at the end of your document.
All references must be cited, and direct quotes from the references must be indicated as such, using quotation marks. However, in science writing, direct quotes are seldom used. Instead, paraphrase the information in the reference, and supply the citation. In the case of plagiarism, all students involved will receive a “0” on this assignment. Thereafter, plagiarism will be handled according to the College’s Academic Honesty Policy, with possible failure of the course and suspension from the College.
