    pass mark

    dont think it will go above what it was from last few times as the papers were really tough! 58% is a bit too high, at least that`s what I think. 55-56% will be more like it. anyway, when the paper has been given, lets not fret over the marks and pray to the almighty that we pass.

    Guest Guest

    I can't believe that the pass cut-off percentage will go higher this time. I felt the questions to be very difficult and you could argue with the answers of most of them , since the choices were very near and the question stem was extremely important for a perfect answer.

    Anyway, hope all of us pass. Thanks to all who have contributed the questions. If you could remember more please do post, also try to remember the choices/full stem of the questions now.
    I will update as and when I remember more questions.

    Dr Iraq Guest


    Good day every one,
    I think that paper one was the hardest, and paper three was the trickiest

    too many Qs about chronic diarrheas with defferent tricks for the solutions
    low ferritin=celiac dis , travel hx=traveller sprue, lymphocytes infeltrate=celiac(even without villus atrophy)
    Qs about drugs and therapeutics were tricky also, includes effects of fluconazole on cyclosporin, ciprofloxacin on aminophylline, serotonin synd. in venalfexine, methemoglobinemia in dapsone use, a hidden upper GI bleed in pt using asperin presented with postural hypo and low Hb, pt who is liable for azathioprine toxicity due to low purine metabolizing enzyme so you have to choose another option to treat crohn's disease(methotrexate), treatment of hyperthyroid in pregnancy where block and replace strategy is unacceptable(stop thyroxin and reduce carbimazole)

    Qs of cardiology were acceptable, pt with post MI unresolving ST elevation where vetricular aneurysm is suspected presented with fainting attack(possible arrhythmia VT) -two Qs in same case. only one Q on cardiac catheter data(surprisingly), ECGs were easy to interpretate(hypoK, VT, Inf. MI, WPW), again many Qs about studies of drugs affecting prognosis in cardiac disease and c/i of cerain drugs such as flecainide

    picture Qs were tough! many CTs and MRIs that I dont know the hell about, there were pics of: retinitis pigmentosa, central retinal vein thrombosis, hypothyroidism, repture biseps tendon, descoid lupus, dermatomyositis hand, dactylitis hand, RA hand, two bone scan with gamma camera!!, many x-ray pelvis, nephrocalsinosis, CXR:pericardial effusion, pleural mass, cannon balls,mucle biopsy in juvenile polymyositis, alopecia aeriata, onycholysis(dont know the cause)

    ABGs were hard to interpretate:near normal PH with very high HCO3=mixed metabolic acidosis and alkalosis, mild acidosis with very low bicarbs and very low pCO2=mixed metabolic acidosis and resp alkalosis(asperin), there was a normal anion gap resp acidosis, ...etc

    endocrine Qs: many misleading data(why he sends dexa supp test in pt with low cortisol level!!), type 2 amiodarone reaction hyperthyroidism(thyroiditis with low iodine uptake) give potasium perchlorate

    mrcp2 july08

    Most of the questions were tricky. Its Type 1 AIT which is treated with perchlorate; type 2 AIT is treated with steroids.

    Abu kamal Guest

    few explanations

    dear dr sara,
    i agree most of u but few ??
    1)SIADH pt na+ 108,pt was drowsy and sign of fluid over load,so i think it would be hypertonic salaine,pl,comment on it every one,may be i forget the qs.
    2)one qs about pneumonia,pt improving that mean became apyrexial with iv amoxicillin and clarithromycin, culture report shows methicilin resistant staphylococcus what to do,
    my ans was as pt improved clinically( why we look for labratory report as u done in ward,)so change to oral comment..
    Ressult may be available in 22 in web page.
    pl join every one in this discurssion.
    i think around 180 qs already posted come on every one for next 80 to 90 qs.

  26. saara

    saara Guest

    I agree with you dr kamal with regards to MRSA.
    In SIADH Fluid restriction is first step.howeveer in symptomatic pt Hypertonic saline should be given.we should correct only half of the deficit.So I really am not sure about the answer.
    one more question-LEMS is ass with ca channel antibodies

    Dear Dr. Saara & Dr. AbuKamal ,
    As regards ttt of SIADH , confusion is not considered as an indication for giving saline . It is given for more severe symptoms e.g. convulsions . So, the right answer is fluid restriction .
  31. dramr4

    dramr4 Guest

    As regards the Q of an over wt pnt with BP 130/80 , depression & IBS with diarrhea (on Loperamide) , the right choice is SIBUTRAMINE . Orlistat causes diarrhea & Rimonabant may cause depression as a S/E .
  32. 121

    121 Guest

    Sibutramine also causes depression.
    As wt ZLoss was adequate on diet so ans was Nothing
    Also Orlistat is used if more than 10 Kg wt loss occurs during 6 mnths
  33. dramr4

    dramr4 Guest

    Sibutramine does not cause depression , but increase BP , flushing , serotonin syndrome , if given with SSRIs .
  34. drosama

    drosama Guest

    dear dramr4,

    Regarding overwieght mngt... you would not start anti-obesity ttt unless the patient is involved in "supervised wt reduction for 3 months"!! the patient in the exam managed to lose < 2 Kg in 1 month. so I think the correct answer was: None (Check BNF anti-obesity)
  35. drosama

    drosama Guest

    SIADH.. already on fluid restriction... I think one should start demeclocycline
  36. saara

    saara Guest

    thanks for your opinion dr abeed and guest
    75) and 22)I agree with you
    24)This pt has day time sleepiness more during afternoon.symptoms improve after brief nap.cataplexy is muscle weakness leading to partial or complete collapse.main thing is consiousness is not arrythmia ass syncope it may be asss with loss of consoiusness(refer-Q67 Sanjay sharma)
    32) still confused
    49) this pt has low pleural fluid glucose.this was repeat question from onexamination.according to onexamination causes of low glucose on pleural fluid is RA,lupus,malignancy,esophageal rupture and TB.lowest glucose is seen in RA and empyema.hence answer is RA as empyema was not in option
    98)doxapram is no longer used in management of pt was drowsy with ph very low.hence he needs intubation and ventilation(refer-Q370 sanjay sharma and onexamination)
    82)this pt had history which was suggestive of liver abscess.there was no option for USG.hence i chose entameba serology
    122)in glossopharyngeal neuralgia pain originates from throat .in some it may be localised to ear or radiate from throat to ear because of involvemnnt of tympanic branch of IX trigeminal neuralgia pain will be in lips ,gums,cheek and chin.this pt had pain in throat(refer-pg2437 harrison 116th edition)
    119)in onychomycossis pt may have thick nails,pitting with partial loss of nail.this pt had half and half (Half white and half normal)nails seen in CRF and hypoalbuminemia
    regarding epistaxis i could not get any satisfactory answer
    pt who is overweight --do nothing
  37. dramr4

    dramr4 Guest

    Dear Dr. Osama , u r right about the obese pnt , but there were 2 Qs of SIADH , 1 was Demelocycline , as u mentined . The other was fluid restriction as the best choice .

    1)- the q about pregnant lady ....answer acute fatty liver of preg...the platelets were normal BP was nomal
    2)--the q about which factor determines future suicide attempt in male is....the suicidal note he left behind..
  42. saara

    saara Guest

    Dear guest
    Ectopic pergancy may be possible.HELLP unlikely as there is no anemia and usually it occurs during peripartum period.if this pt had fever and hemolysis with normal APTT and FDP we could have thought of HUS .if ass seizures TTP.if APTT prolonged with increased FDP and decreased fibrinogen it may be DIC.
    Male pt with suicidal attempt-I think answer is his suicidal note.
  43. dr abeed

    dr abeed Guest

    The pt with succide attempt ,i choose he actually took a potentially
    lethal dose 32 tabs paracetmol ....succidal note !! may be he change

    young boy with depression age 16 yrs.. options: 3 SSRIs, 1 MAOI and TCA... according to BNF SSRIs are licensed for above 18 of age.. MAOIs is obviously incorrect (not first line) so this leaves TCA as the correct option :lol:
