  22. MRCP2 2011

    the recall for this one was outstandingly poor...

    UKDoc Guest

    Desmopressin is ADH Analogue. Not a good idea to give that in SIADH.
    Demeclocycline's a better choice
  24. Dr albarwari

    Dr albarwari Guest

    Hope all will pass inshaallah,,,although this was a very difficult long tricky exam

    for velocity_girl
    Pt with PD whose co-careldopa got increased recently actually what happened it was visual hallucination after increasing the dose of co-careldopa for dyskinesia,,,I think the question was asking for lewy body and what next step really I do not the correct choice but I chosed donepezil which is given for lewy bot unsure

    Pt with PD who has developed cognitive decline I chose rivastigmine and I think there was no option for donepezil

    Pt develops disinhibited behaviour with dementia and good mental score 29/30 I chose frontotemporal dementia

    Girl with psychiatry and self harm day before after boyfriend argument but now doesn't want to die after all. Has self-harmed before and has bad relations with close freinds when was 16,,,I chose borderline personality

    Young chap who is normally fit and well keeps getting palpitations which he is symptomatic from when they are occurring - few mins to up to 30min intervals to the episodes I think best option was paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia

    for the case of hyponatremia I think best answer is demeclocycline
  25. Dr albarwari

    Dr albarwari Guest

    Asthmatic patient with recurrent left lower lobe pneumonia mild elevation of IgE and Eosinophil 0.45 what is the cause of recurrent pneumonia....I chose endobronchial tumor "carcinoid" what do other say

    dr_aster Guest

    hai shez ,
    im Shahi000 here
    this time i am in a different name ...
  36. Dr albarwari

    Dr albarwari Guest

    Hi Shahi000 I like to continue with this name
    Hi shez
    I am happy you are here
    The exam was very difficult very long tricky and specially paper 3 and for the last questions just I read the options and investigations without history,,,but I feel I answered good in paper 1 and 2 hope from ALLAH to pass us,,,,so dear shahi do not lose the hope and I am ready as I can to discuss although I can not remember most questions
  37. Dr albarwari

    Dr albarwari Guest

    Young male patient with backache jaw pain and left knee joint arithritis he was intolerant to NSAIDs "Ibubrufen" aspiration of joint show increased neutrophils "No microorganism NO crystals" options

    I think the case was Ankylosing and here best choice is Methylprednisolone "intraarticular" as the patient was in pain and you can not give Diclofenac
    I found this recommendations in CKS

    Specific corticosteroids are recommended for different sites according to joint size; the dose depends on the severity of the condition. In general, for:
    Small joints: methylprednisolone or hydrocortisone is recommended.
    Medium-sized joints: methylprednisolone or triamcinolone is recommended.
    Large joints: methylprednisolone or triamcinolone is recommended.

    Please for any other opinion
  38. Dr albarwari

    Dr albarwari Guest

    for anti Tb drugs causing jaundice I did not remember the level of liver enzymes but I chose stop all drugs
    The last questions in paper 3 as only I read the options and investigations I think there was bleeding tendency with DIC lab "Low fibrinogen and high D dimer Prolonged APTT" and I am sure I found normal blood film options
    Acute promyelocytic leukemia
    Dissiminated malignancy
    factor 7 or 8 dificeincy

    could not remember more
  39. Dr albarwari

    Dr albarwari Guest

    for hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism
    there was pituitary mass prolactin normal other hormone normal normal calcium options

    non functioning pituitary tumor
    germ cell tumour
    Langerhans cell histiocytosis

    I think the case was "Partial hypopituitarism and Langerhans cell histiocytosis" as if it was craniopharyngioma or non functioning pituitary tumor there should be increased prolactin and other hormones to be affected and germ cell tumour has no relation sarcoidosis could be but you have normal calcium and no erythema nodosom
    Langerhans cell histiocytosis commonly presented with Diabetes insipidus but was not the case here
    I found this case in BMJ

    Any opinion
  40. Dr albarwari

    Dr albarwari Guest

    for PMLE
    I do not know if this was the case of HIV patient with low CD4 and confusion CT was normal CSF only show increased lymphocyte Cryptococcal antigen was positive so I cose cryptococcosis ,,,,,if this was the case,,,as I can not remember any PMLE
  41. Dr albarwari

    Dr albarwari Guest

  49. r u sure?72 is a lot.
  50. MRCP Part 2

    72 sounds somewhat ridiculous. 3 people will pass at that rate.

    Thanks Dr albarwari - i chose the same answers as you for the ones you have gone over for me though I switched co-careldopa for ropinirole for the PD pt with hallucinations.

    Does anyone also recall a man with HIV and a CD4 count of 3 with widespread lymphadenopathy, night sweats, fevers and 17kg weight loss?

    d)HHV 8
