Review the Case Study of Ben, Part 3. Imagine now that you had not seen Part 2 but instead, after Ben Part 1, you read Part 3. For your initial post in this discussion, submit your response to these questions:
- Describe how the new information alters the picture presented in the original case study. Before posting, you might want to review Ben Part 1, the case you discussed last week (u06d2).
- Describe your new diagnostic hypotheses, and justify your conclusions.
- What further diagnostic evaluation do you believe is warranted?
