Then we get a gross and microscopic description and have three to five multiple choice questions about their condition.

An x-ray reveals multiple 1-5mm nodules disseminated through the liver, lungs, and spleen. What do you think is the primary cause of the disease? What type of co-infection would you most likely expect?
