Latest Cases

You are a third year medical student working in the pediatric emergency room when you are asked to see a 10 day old infant with a fever.

You arrive to meet Carole and her new daughter Lucy. Carole explains that for the last couple of days, Lucy has been very sleepy and hasn’t been breast-feeding as much. This morning, Lucy woke with a fever of 39.3°C at which point, Carole got concerned and brought Lucy to the emergency room.

This case was written by Dr. Baylee Webster and Dr. Sarah Forgie. Baylee Webster is a rural family medicine resident from the University of Alberta. Sarah Fogie is a pediatric infectious disease specialist at the Stollery Children’s Hospital and University of Alberta


A mother brings her 7-month old infant to the emergency room with 3 days of high fever that has persisted despite regular tylenol (acetaminophen). She has no cough, rhinorrhea or other symptoms of an upper respiratory tract infection. She has also not had any vomiting or diarrhea. She has been acting quite fussy for the past few days and was breastfeeding normally until today where she has not wanted to eat anything. Her temperature is 39°C in the ED. The rest of her vital signs were within the normal range.


You are a third year medical student on an emergency medicine rotation. The triage nurse tells you that a young mother has brought in her 2 and 1/2 month old baby boy because he “won’t wake up” and has been “shaking”. You quickly enter the room and find Latisha, a 17 year old first time mom and her son Jamal. Jamal is unresponsive.


You are a student intern completing an elective in pediatrics when you meet Mrs. O’Neil and her daughter, Katie, in clinic. Mrs. O’Neil states 7 year old Katie has poor attention, school difficulties and stomachaches which started about the same time as the receipt of this year’s fall report card. It is now spring.
