A 10 year old female consulted for weakness and respiratory distress. She had fever 2 weeks ago with associated knee pains. 1 week ago, she had body malaise, palpitation and pallor. 3 days ago, she had poor appetite with dyspnea. PE on admission: HR 140, RR 24, T 37.8C. Pale, mild cardiorespiratory distress, adynamic precordium, muffled heart sounds, tachycardic, regulatr rhythm, soft systolic murmur at the apex, no hepatomegaly, good pulses and fair perfusion, inflamed right knee. What is your diagnosis?
a. acute rheumatic fever with carditis
b. acute rheumatic fever with carditis and arthritis

9 month old girl with tachypnea, excessive sweating, and feeding intolerance was found to have 45 XO chromosomes. Her BP was 130/80 on the R arm and she had a grade 3/6 systolic ejection murmur at the left parasternal border. Her popliteal pulses were weak. An echocardiogram would most likely reveal:
5/M was brought to the emergency room for respiratory distress. She had high grade fever for 4 days with cough, colds, and progressive dyspnea. PE on admission: HR 160, RR 42, awake but weak, harsh breath sounds, adynamic precordium, no heave or thrill, soft heart sounds but tachycardic, no murmur, liver 5cm below right costal margin.
