Resident Wins Case Presentation Contest at Wisconsin Psychiatric Association Meeting

One of the University of Wisconsin Psychiatry residents, Michelle Hume, won a case presentation contest at the Wisconsin Psychiatric Association’s annual meeting last March.  It is a friendly competition between UW and MCW, with the prize being possession of a bust of Sigmund Freud for a year. Hume writes, “My case presentation title was “An Atypical Alcoholic,” which is a case presentation of a patient who was admitted with presumed Wernicke’s encephalophathy who actually had sporadic CJD. So the presentation was not only the case, but some things early on that ought to have clued the teams into the misdiagnosis.”
