Flashcards in test #49 5.6 Deck (78):
phagocyte dysfxn immunodeficiency present with..
(can't kill what they phagocytose)
candida skin test
tests for cell-mediated immunity, since we have all been exposed to candida, we should mount a response to it
via macrophages, CD4+, CD8+, NK cells
absence of response suggests SCID
type 4 HSR
most common causes of spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (3)
1. arteriovenous malformations
2. ruptured cerebral aneursyms
3. abuse of sympthatomimetic drugs (cocaine)
cause of death in adult-type coarctation of aorta
left ventricle failure, ruptured dissecting aortic aneursym, intracranial hemorrhage (bc increased blood flow tere)
typical site of pathology w/ crohn's disease
why may crohn's have increased gallstones?
bc loss of bile acid reabsorption in terminal ileum
sharp pull on outstretched hand while forearm is pronated and elbow is extended
radial head subluxation (nursemaid elbow)
most common elbow injury in children
tear annular ligament that holds radius to ulna at elbow
will hold in that position
which antipsychotics help treat negative symptoms of schizophrenia
emotional range, poverty of speech, loss of interest, loss of drive
rx for prevention of GBS meningitis in neonate
(rx earlier still leaves mom susceptible at time of birth)
V2 vasopressin increases CD permeability to (2)
1. water (aquaporins)
two ways of regulating lac operon expression
negatively: bind repressor protein to operon locus
positive: cAMP-CAP binding upstream promoter
receptors w/ Gq activation
a1, m1, m3
V1 ADH (vascular)
adh V2, ang II, histamine
calcipotriene, calcitriol, tacalcitol
topical vitamin D analog
used to treat psoriasis
activate vitamin D receptor nuclear transcription factor, inhibits keratinocyte proliferation & stimulates differentiation

inhibits differentation and activation of CD4+ Th1 and Th17 cells
aortic regurg murmur
VERY EARLY diastole.
listen carefully, might sound like systole
hypertrophic cardiomyopathy murmur
can ALSO have mitral regurg bc of impaired valve closure
both systolic murmurs
alcoholic w/ megaloblastic anemia
likely folate deficiency
1. poor intake
2. poor absorption, utilization, enterohepatic recycling
rx for acute coronary syndrome, angina
clopidogrel (irreversible ADP block)
considerations before giving metformin
worry about lactic acidosis
contraindicate in any condition that might raise lactic acid levels: liver dysfunction, heart failure, alcoholism, sepsis
where does inferior mesenteric vein drain?
into SPLENIC vein, which joins SMA --> portal vein
note: different from arterial supply
what component of meningococcus correlates w/ patient morbidity & mortality
LPS equivalent: outer membrane lipooligosaccharide
leads to sepsis, petechiae, waterhouse-friederichson
[note: not the capsule]
how do nitrates cause vasodilation
NO, stimulate guanylate cyclase, convert GTP -> cGMP

acanthosis (increased spinosum)
elongation of rete ridges
mitotic activity above epidermal basal cell layer
reduced/absent stratum granulosum
epidermal layer above dermal papillae = thinned & contained dilated vessels --> pinpoint bleeding-- AUSPITZ sign
neutrophils may form clusters in superficial dermis & parakeratotic stratum corneum --> MUNRO MICROABSCESSES
signs of portal HTN w/ normal liver biopsy suggests
presinusoidal process (aka not budd chiari)
must be portal vein thrombosis
unlikely to see ascites bc obstruction is presinusoidal
differentiating portal HTN due to budd chiari vs portal vein thrombosis
if it was budd-chiari (occlusion of hepatic vein, which drains hepatic & portal circulation into systemic circulation), would see centrilogular congestion & fibrosis in liver.
see nothing w/ portal vein thrombosis
acetaminophen overdoses causes what type of liver histology
centrilobular hepatic necrosis and failure in 24-48 hrs after ingestion
paradoxical increase in JVP with insipiration
suggests constrictive pericarditis
causes of constrictive pericarditis
-cardiac surgery/radiation therapy
-tuberculosis (in endemic areas)
hemodynamic signs of constrictive pericarditis
pericardial knock vs. S3
S3: sudden deceleration of incoming blood as it reaches an elastic limit (reduced INSTRINSIC) ventricular compliance
pericardial knock: reduced ventricular compliance via an EXTERNAL force. sharper, more accentuate sound heard earlier in diastole
most common liver neoplasm
if see multiple hypodense masses in liver
causes of hepatic adenoma
uncommon, benign epithelial tumors
associated w/ oral contraceptives, or anabolic steroid use
presentation: upper abdominal pain, or incidental
can rupture and cause intraabdominal hemorrhage
hepatic angiosarcoma associated w.
exposure to vinyl chloride, thorotrast, or arsenic
aggressive and associated w/ poor prognosis. most die within 1 year.
most common liver neoplasm in kids.
associated with FAP and beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome
fatal within a few years if not surgically resected.
rare, from intra / extrahepatic bile ducts.
intrahepatic: grossly like tree-like mass along biliary system. typically resulting in extensive intrahepatic metastasis.
risk: primary sclerosing cholangiitis, fibropolycystic liver disease, infxn w/ liver flukes in endemic areas.

breast cancer associated w/ peau de orange?
inflammatory breast cancer
lymphatic obstruction and tissue swelling --> collections of neoplastic cells plugging dermal lymphatic channels
presentation of inflammatory breast cancer
(pale pink to deep red brown to purple)
-rapidly progressive underlying mass
peau d;orange: putting edema in subcutaneous break tissue w/ skin thickening around exaggerated follicles.
plugging of lymphatic channels
3 phases of wound healing
-within 1 day: neutrophils
-3-5days: fibroblasts and endothelial vascular cells -> vascular granulation tissue
3. maturation phase:
-after 1 wk: active fibroblasts make collagen, elastin, etc. replace type III w/ type I collagen.
6-8 wks: scar complete, 30-40% of tensile strength. mature for several months, increasing tensile
70-80% in 3 months
keloid vs. hypertrophic scar
excessive collagen formation during tissue repair.
-extend beyond borders,
-recur after resection
- collagen fibers DISORGANIZED
-limited to area of wound,

drop in PaO2 below 80mmHg
normal A-a gradient
causes of hypoxemia with normal A-a gradient (2)
2. low pO2 (high altitude)
hypoventilation: suppressed respiratory drive, i.e. sedative overdose, sleep apnea, or decreased inspiratory capacity: myasthenia, obesity
how does decreased alveolar ventillation affect PaO2
will have LOWER alveolar gas
normal A-a gradient
how does a right-to-left shunt affected PaO2
will have increased A-a gradient (>15-20)
alveolar gas = normal
how does V/Q mismatch affect PaO2?
poor ventilation of perfused alveoli -> physiologic right-left shunt.
increased A-a gradient
pneumonia, obstructive pulmonary disease, PE
