Patients with granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's) have involvement of what organ systems?
Upper resp tract: sinusitis, nasal ulceration
Lower resp tract: hemoptysis
Antibodies against what proteins mediates rheumatic heart disease? Clinical signs?
Anti-M proteins of streptococci crossreact with glycoproteins of heart and joints. Presents with joint pain and cardiac murmur
What is deficient in Glanzmann thrombasthenia?
Gp IIb/IIIa receptor blocker
Transmural inflammation of the arterial wall with fibrinoid necrosis is characteristic of what disease?
In addition to the erythema with silvery scales, what else is seen in psoriasis?
Nails: yellow/brown discoloration with pitting, thickening or crumbling
Joints: arthritis with market deformities, like in RA
The "pterion" is where the frontal, parietal, temporal, and sphenoid bones meet in the skill. What artery is at risk here?
Middle MENINGEAL artery, a branch of the Maxillary. Can cause epidural hematomas
Differentiation of osteoclasts by what signal molecules?
RANK-ligand and Monocyte-CSF (both released by osteoblasts)
What protein dilutes the interaction between RANK and RANK-L?
Osteoprotegerin (OPG), a decoy receptor secreted by osteoblasts
How does PTH stimulate bone resorption?
PTH receptors are NOT on osteoclasts, but on osteoblasts, stimulating release of M-CSF and RANK-L
What is the effect of Low estrogen on bone vasularity?
Increase, due to increased VEGF
