NU-664B Week 14 Assignment 2: iHuman Simulation

Annie Wagner SOAP notes


  1. Cervicitis

This refers to the inflammation of the ectocervix and can be caused by non-infectious or infectious agents like Neisseria gonorrhea, trichomonas vaginalis or chlamydia trachomatis. Patient can be symptomatic or asymptomatic. Signs and symptoms includes; mucoid/yellowish discharge, urinary symptoms like dysuria, increased frequency, dyspareunia or abdominal pain, they have history of multiple partners, previous history of STIs, they do not use protection from STIs. Vaginal exam shows purulent mucoid and a friable cervix (Iqbal et al.,2023). Annie presents with dysuria, mucoid vaginal discharge, she has multiple sexual partners, she had recurrent bladder infection and does not use condom. Examination shows mucopurulent vaginal discharge and a friable cervix. Lab test shows Neisseria and this qualifies it to be the most probable diagnosis.

  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)

UTI is an infection involving urinary tract; ureters, bladder, urethra and kidneys. It is mainly caused by E.coli bacteria and patients mainly presents with dysuria, frequency, urgency, back or flank pain, pelvic pain, nausea, vomiting, high fever or chills (Tan et al.,2016). In our case, patient only present with burning when urinating, urgency and increased frequency. She does not present with flank/back pain, nausea, vomiting or high fever and hence not the most probable diagnosis.

  • Candida vaginitis.

This is a vaginal fungal infection caused by candida albican. It is also known as vaginal yeast infection or vulvovaginal candidiasis. Signs and symptoms include; abnormal vaginal discharge which is whitish, thick and cheese like and odorless, dyspareunia, vaginal itchiness and dysuria (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2022). Annie in this case does not vaginal itchiness, has cheese like discharge, the discharge is yellowish and smelly and this rule out Candida vaginitis as the most probable diagnosis.

  • Bacterial Vaginosis

This is a bacterial disease, patients present with fishy-smelling vaginal discharge which recurs around the time of menstruation, dysuria, vaginal itchiness (Hay et al., 2017). Annie does not have a fishy-smelling vaginal discharge and denies vaginal itchiness.

The iHuman platform is an opportunity for you to interact with a simulated patient and gather data. When working in iHuman, practice as if this were a real patient. For example, the platform allows you to ask several questions when taking a patient history. In real life, you likely will be limited in time. Practice setting yourself a patient history time limit and work on being efficient in your clinical interview.

If you require technical support with the iHuman platform, use the iHuman Help Center to contact iHuman Technical Support directly. Technical support only includes a malfunction of the platform; they cannot help with issues involving content!


In this assignment, you will review a patient scenario in iHuman. Please see the course announcement for the case assigned this week. Your deliverable for this assignment is a paper based on the iHuman Soap Note Template (Word).

  • Follow the requirements listed in the iHuman Soap Note Template.
  • When your iHuman Soap Note Template is complete, upload it to this assignment.

All papers must conform to the most recent APA standards.
