    A. Closure of the venous arteriosus
    B. Increase right vetricular presurre
    C. Closure of the ductus arteriosus
    D. Increased pulmonary pressure from right ventricular pressure

    Normally, functional closure of the ductus arteriosus occurs by about 15 hours of life in healthy infants born at term. This occurs by abrupt contraction of the muscular wall of the ductus arteriosus, which is associated with increases in the partial pressure of oxygen (PO2) coincident with the first breath.
    At birth, placental blood flow ceases and lung respiration begins. The sudden drop in right atrial pressure pushes the septum primum against the septum secundum, closing the foramen ovale. The ductus arteriosus begins to close almost immediately, and may be kept open by the administration of prostaglandins
    A. Circulatory Adjustments at birth:

    Increasing uptake of oxygen by lungs (first and subsequent breaths) induces a vasoconstriction of ductus venosus and ductus arteriosis
    Aeration of the lungs at birth is associated with
    1. a dramatic fall in pulmonary vascular resistance due to lung expansion.
    2. a marked increase in pulmonary blood flow (thus raising the left atrial pressure above that of IVC)
    3. a progressive thinning of the walls of the pulmonary arteries (due to stretching as lungs increase in size with first few breaths)
    The first breath: … the pulmonary alveoli open up:
    … pressure in the pulmonary tissues decreases
    … Blood from the right heart rushes to fill the alveolar capillaries
    … Pressure in the right side of the heart decreases
    … Pressure in the left side of the heart increases as more blood is returned from the well-vascularized pulmonary tissue via the pulmonary veins to the left atrium



    12. Carcinoma of the nasopharynx:

    A. Locally destructive lesion
    B. Presence of EBV antibodis
    C. Not sensitive to radiotherapy
    D. Response well to chemotherapy
    E. Related mostly to lymphoma


    13. 6 year-old boy with progressive flaccid paralysis and a history of immunisation according to his age. What is correct?

    A. Post vaccination poliomylitis
    B. Peripheral myopathy
    Acute flaccid paralysis is the term used in public health programs to identify suspected patients with paralytic disease consistent with acute poliomyelitis. It is characterized by rapid onset of weakness of limbs, often with weakness of respiratory muscles and difficulty in swallowing, progressing to maximum severity within 1- 10 days. In some developing countries the incidence of acute flaccid paralysis remains high despite decrease in the proportion of virologically confirmed poliomyelitis(2). Paralytic disease due to enteroviruses other than poliovirus occurs sporadically and is usually less severe than poliomyelitis. Most cases are due to enterovirus 70 to 71(3) or to coxsackie virus A7. Gullian-Barre syndrome is also associated with entero-virus infections. Polio like illness has been observed in some young adult cases of acute hemorrhagic conjuctivitis caused by enterovirus 70, during epidemics. Mumps virus may occasionally be associated with transverse myelitis and Gullian-Barre syndrome and present with acute flaccid paralysis. In certain circumstances oral polio-vaccine (OPV) can cause acute flaccid paralysis. The risk of developing polio-myelitis after OPV is estimated at 1 case per 2.5 million doses administered.

    A. Reiter’s disease
    B. Behcet’s disease
    C. AIDS
    D. Rheumatoid arthritis
    E. Ankylosing spondylitis

    The symptoms of Behçet's disease are believed to be caused by an over-active immune system which, without any apparent infections, produces recurrent outbreaks of inflammation in small blood vessels. Common symptoms include mouth ulcers, sore genitals and eye inflammation, and arthritis in older patients, mostly painful but not life-threatening conditions
    Symptoms of reiters disease generally appear within 1-3 weeks but can range from 4-35 days from the onset of the inciting episode of the disease.
    The classical presentation is that the first symptom experienced is a urinary symptom such as burning pain on urination (dysuria) or an increased need to urinate (polyuria or frequency). Other urogenital problems may arise such as prostatitis in men, and cervicitis, salpingitis and/or vulvovaginitis in women.


    Diagnosis revealed that the rash on the bottom of this individual’s feet, known as keratoderma blennorrhagica, was due to Reiter's syndrome'-CDC/ Dr. M. F. Rein.
    The arthritis that follows usually affects the large joints such as the knees causing pain and swelling with relative sparing of small joints such as the wrist and hand.
    Eye involvement occurs in about 50% of men with urogenital reactive arthritis and about 75% of men with enteric reactive arthritis. Conjunctivitis and uveitis can cause redness of the eyes, eye pain and irritation, and blurred vision. Eye involvement typically occurs early in the course of reactive arthritis, and symptoms may come and go.
    Roughly 20 to 40 percent of men with reactive arthritis develop penile lesions called balanitis circinata (circinate balanitis) on the end of the penis. A small percentage of men and women develop small hard nodules called keratoderma blennorrhagica on the soles of the feet, and less often on the palms of the hands or elsewhere. In addition, some people with Reactive Arthritis develop mouth ulcers that come and go. In some cases, these ulcers are painless and go unnoticed. Some people suffer serious gastrointestinal problems similar to those of Crohn's Disease

    38.Which one of the following is not associated with malignancy

    A. Actinic keratosis
    B. Dermatomyositis
    C. Acanthosis nigricans
    D. Erythema multiforme
    Erythema multiforme is a skin condition of unknown etiology , but some authors suggest that the disease is mediated by deposition of immune complex ( mostly IgM ) in the superficial microvasculature of the skin and oral mucous membrane that usually follows an antecedent infection or drug exposure. It varies from a mild, self-limited rash (E. multiforme minor) to a severe, life-threatening form (E. multiforme major, or Stevens-Johnson syndrome) that also involves mucous membranes.

    Dermatomyositis is connective-tissue disease that is characterized by inflammation of the muscles and the skin. Its cause is unknown, but it may result from either a viral infection or an autoimmune reaction. Up to 50% of the cases may be a paraneoplastic phenomenon, indicating the presence of cancer.

    Actinic keratosis (also called solar keratosis, or AK) is a premalignant condition of thick, scaly, or crusty patches of skin. It is most common in fair-skinned people who are frequently exposed to the sun, because their pigment isn't very protective. It usually is accompanied by solar damage. Since some of these pre-cancers progress to squamous cell carcinoma, they should be treated.
    When skin is exposed to the sun constantly, thick, scaly, or crusty bumps appear. The scaly or crusty part of the bump is dry and rough. The growths start out as flat scaly areas, and later grow into a tough, wart-like area.

    B. 46XY with mother taking Cyproterone citrate at 8 week pregnancy
    C. 46XX with 17-alpha Hydroxylase
    D. 46XY with androgen resistance

    Cyproterone acetate is an antiandrogen, i.e. it suppresses the actions of testosterone (and its metabolite dihydrotestosterone) on tissues. It acts by blocking androgen receptors which prevents androgens from binding to them and suppresses luteinizing hormone (which in turn reduces testosterone levels). Its main indications are prostate cancer, benign prostatic hyperplasia, priapism, hypersexuality and other conditions in which androgen action maintains the disease process. Due to its anti-androgen effect, it can also be used to treat hirsutism, and is a common component in hormone therapy for male-to-female transgendered people
    17-hydroxylase (17-OH) deficiency syndrome is a rare genetic disorder of steroid biosynthesis causing decreased production of glucocorticoids and sex steroids and increased synthesis of mineralocorticoid precursors. Reduced or absent levels of both gonadal and adrenal sex hormones result in sexual infantilism in 46,XX females and ambiguous genitalia in 46, XY males

    "The serotonin syndrome is a hypersotonergic state which is a very dangerous and a potentially fatal side effect of serotonergic enhancing drugs which can have multiple psychiatric and non-psychiatric symptoms. This is a toxic condition which requires heightened clinical awareness in order to prevent, recognize, and treat the condition promptly. Promptness is vital because, as we just mentioned, the serotonin syndrome can be fatal and death from this side effect can come very rapidly. The suspected cause of that increase is the introduction of the new selective serotonergic enhancing agents in clinical practice - the SSRIs. This disorder, brought on by excessive levels of serotonin, is difficult to distinguish from the neuroleptic malignant syndrome because the symptoms are so similar. The neuroleptic malignant syndrome is a serious condition brought on by the use of the neuroleptic drugs.

    "The symptoms of the serotonin syndrome are: euphoria, drowsiness, sustained rapid eye movement, overreaction of the reflexes, rapid muscle contraction and relaxation in the ankle causing abnormal movements of the foot, clumsiness, restlessness, feeling drunk and dizzy, muscle contraction and relaxation in the jaw, sweating, intoxication, muscle twitching, rigidity, high body temperature, mental status changes were frequent (including confusion and hypomania - a "happy drunk" state), shivering, diarrhea, loss of consciousness and death.
    "The serotonin syndrome is generally caused by a combination of two or more drugs, one of which is often a selective sertonergic medication. The drugs which we know most frequently contribute to this condition are the combining of MAOIs with Prozac (this should also include the other SSRIs) or other drugs that have a powerful effect upon serotonin, ie, clomipramine (Anafranil), trazadone (Deseryl), etc. The combination of lithium with these selective serotonergic agents has been implicated in enhancing the serotonin syndrome. The tricyclic antidepressants, lithium, MAOIs, SSRIs, ECT (electric shock treatment), tryptophan, and the serotonin agonists (fenfluramine) all enhance serotonin neurotransmission and can contribute to this syndrome. Anything which will raise the level of serotonin can bring on this hyperserotonergic condition. The optimal treatment for the serotonin syndrome is discontinuation of the offending medication or medications, offer supportive measures, and wait for the symptoms to resolve. If the offending medication is discontinued, the condition will often resolve on its own within a 24 hour period. If the medication is not discontinued the condition can progress rapidly to a more serious state and become fatal.

    some more questions

    Thanks so much for your thorough response. It is such a big help and reassurance to me Its a great idea to do a Spanish course at the university, because I may be able to gather some inside information on the English department that way. Ive sent an email, and hope theyll have a course to fit my schedule/arrive time...

    Platypus--maybe not a bad place to spend a week. Thanks for that.

    You mentioned that youre more keen to meet locals. Have you found any good places to meet people? Do you salsa? Any particularly good places for that?

    Anyway, thanks again for all your help--it makes my day
