A comparison and contrast assignment’s focus is to identify and explore similarities and differences between two similar diseases. The goal of this exploration is to bring about a better understanding of both diseases.

You will research the two areas of content assigned to you and compare and contrast them in a discussion post. NOTE: A comparison and contrast assignment is not about listing the info regarding each disease separately but rather looking at each disease side by side and discussing the similarities and differences given the categories below. Consider how each patient would actually present to the office. Paint a picture of how that patient would look, act, what story they would tell. Consider how their history would affect their diagnosis, etc. Evaluation of mastery is focused on the student’s ability to demonstrate a specific understanding of how the diagnoses differ and relate to one another. Address the following topics below in your own words:

Presentation
Pathophysiology
Assessment
Diagnosis
Treatment

Compare and contrast the following diagnoses as assigned: Trigeminal Neuralgia and Giant Cell Arteritis
