The Assignment (APA format)

(1- to 2-page case study analysis-this does not include title page and reference page)

Develop a 1- to 2-page case study analysis in which you:

Explain why you think the patient presented the symptoms described. (Not a trick question but reflective of a patient on immunosuppressive drugs and a high-risk employment for exposure to Aspergillosis)Identify the genes that may be associated with the development of the disease.Explain the process of immunosuppression and the effect it has on body systems.

Developing answers to these 3 questions, each question 1-2 paragraphs will bring you to the 2-page expected limit. 3 pages will not lose points but learning to synthesize points, provide current references (submissions like this would earn 3 primary references) and citations will garner full credit.
