    This forum is not moving at all!! That’s what I feel. What do you guys say? :roll:

    I found the ans for this post empty, have attempted the ans.

    A. Frusemide
    B. Amitryptilline
    C. Spironolactone
    D. Cimetidine
    E. Digoxin

    ANS- B

    Drug AND Percentage*
    Spironolactone16.1
    Cimetidine 11.2
    Famotidine 3.8
    Ranitidine 2.5
    Digoxin 2.4

    Which tumour almost NEVER metastasises to the brain?
    A. Malignant melanoma
    B. Pancreatic carcinoma
    C. Prostate cancer
    D. Breast cancer
    E. Lung Cancer
    F. Renal cell C
    ANS- B (Source: Virtualtrials.com, RCC may have mets in brain)

    Where do mets come from?
    Mets are the most common "tumors" that appear in the brain in adults (about 150,000 yearly in the USA) and are rarer in children. The most common types of cancer that metastasize to the brain originate in the lung, breast, colon and prostate. Malignant melanoma, an aggressive form of skin cancer, also has a high rate of metastasis to the brain. (or Prados, or Kaye).



    A 40y old woman cannot read the telephone book. What is the likely problem?
    A. Glaucoma
    B. Cataract
    C. Presbyopia
    D. Myopia
    E. Hypermetropia

    ANS- C



    CT Scan of liver of a male patient aged 50. The CT showed a circular lesion with lighter, multiple shadows inside, in the right lobe of the liver. What is it?

    A. Secondaries
    B. Hepatoma
    C. Hydatid cyst
    D.
    E.

    ANS- Hydatid Cyst with daughter cysts. Single, circular, on right lobe, multiple shadows D most likely.



    A young female has taken 50 paracetamol tablets, 500mg each. Which of the following will be LEAST effective in the first 8 hours?
    A. Oral NAC
    B. IV NAC
    C. Peritoneal dialysis
    D. Activated charcoal
    E. Methionine

    ANS-C (Dialysis has extremely limited role in acetaminophen poisoning. Antioxidents and AAs may be used)



    A 70y old lady has recurrent superficial thrombophlebitis and DVT. She has been treated with anticoagulants, warfarin AND aspirin, but it still occurs.
    A. She has small cell lung cancer
    B. She has epithelial ovarian carcinoma
    C. She has mucinous carcinoma of the colon
    D. Myeloid leukaemia
    E. Pancreatic cancer ??

    ANS-??

    Pancreatic cancers are known to cause thrombophlebitis and so are other visceral malignancies . Paraneoplastic symptom of lung CA includes the above. Ovarian cancer can cause thrombophlebitis (Ref Oxford textbook of Sx)…Bottom-line, I don’t the answer. If someone does, please tell.



    Tension pneumothorax, treatment:
    A. Wide-bore needle insertion in the 2nd intercostal space anteriorly
    B. Intubation
    C. Chest drain tube insertion in the 4th mid-axillary line

    ANS- A



    Chest x-ray of a 40 year old man who presented with cough of 4 weeks. It started from a runny nose, which lasted for 3 days. Since then he developed cough which has deteriorated over 4 weeks. The cough particularly disturbs him at night and in the early morning and accompanied by small amount of yellowish sputum:

    A. Pulmonary TB
    B. Bronchitis
    C. Pulmonary fibrosis
    D. Bronchiectasis
    E. Sarcoidosis

    ANS- B


    All cause neck stiffness except

    A. Botulism
    B. Tetanus
    C. Phenothiazine toxicity
    D. Upper lobe pneumonia
    E. Meningitis

    ANS- A ??

    Think the ans is A. Bouulism is due to a powerful toxin which even in small amounts (picograms they say) can cause predominantly bulbar and ocular paralysis with progressive limb weakness and resp paralysis.

    Tetanus causes stiff neck and opisthotonus.

    PTZs are known to cause dystonias. Don’t know if that is neck stiffness?

    Pneumonia can cause meningismus and hence stiffneck.

    Meningitis ofcoures will.


    PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG ON THESE.
