Three days prior , patient developed cough and fever. For the past 3 years, patient had suffered from recurrent pains and jaundice. What is the pathophysiologic mechanism responsible for the most serious clinical features of this disease?

An 18 y/o female complained of generalized weakness, lethargy, and light headedness. She revealed she was having excessive bleeding during menstruation from the previous 6 months. Upon examining, she was noted to have pallor, tachycardia, and swollen tongue. Most likely morphology of RBC:

Microcytic, hypochromic anemia (Case of IDA) (TOPNOTCH)

157

Presents signs and symptoms of anemia, thrombocytopenia, and neutropenia. Splenomegaly is characteristically absent. And the red cell are usually macrocytic and normochromic. (+) Reticulocytopenia. Bone marrow is hypocellular. What is the condition described?

160

Most common presenting symptoms of this condition are spontaneous bleeding from mucous membranes, excessive bleeding from wounds, or menorrhagia. Bleeding tendency often goes unnoticed until some hemostatic stress, such as surgery, reveals its presence. Patients may have defects in platelet function despite a normal platelet count, prolonged PTT.

161

Patient with this disease has a tendency toward easy bruising and massive hemorrhage after trauma or operative procedures, and recurrent bleeding into the joints. Petechiae are absent. Patients have a prolonged PTT and normal PT.

A 5 year old male is observed by his mother to have tea-colored urine whenever he has infections. One particular episode of pneumonia required hospital admission, where the child developed jaundice also. A peripheral blood smear showed red cells with Heinz bodies, while other red cells had parts of their cytoplasm "plucked out". The child likely has a deficient enzyme required in the production of reduced glutathione, the gene for which is found on (A) X chromosome (B) Y chromosome (C) chromosome 21 (D) chromosome 22

An 8 year old child from the slums has easy fatigability and pallor. A peripheral blood smear shows large, egg-shaped red cell precursors, and hypersegmented neutrophils. Short of measuring serum folate and vitamin B12 levels, what finding will suggest a vitamin B12 deficiency, rather than a folate deficiency? (A) gastrointestinal symptoms (B) neurologic symptoms (C) development of congestive heart failure (D) megaloblasts on bone marrow aspirate smears

A 33 year old female presents with pallor, easy fatigability, and echymoses. Her spleen is not enlarged. A CBC showed profound anemia and markedly decreased WBC and platelet counts. A bone marrow core biopsy showed marrow that is predominantly replaced by fat, with few lymphocytic and plasma cells. The most common cause of her condition is (A) myelotoxic drugs (B) viral infection (C) bacterial infection (D) idiopathic

A 14 year old male develops fever, sore throat, lymphadenitis, and fatigue. His CBC shows leukocytosis, with a lymphocytic predominance. Peripheral blood smear shows some large leukocytes with abundant cytoplasm occasional azurophilic granules, and indented nuclei with fine chromatin. Monospot test and anti-EBV titers are positive. The large leukocytes seen are (A) monocytes (B) megakaryocytes (C) B cells (D) T cells

Lymph nodes that drain cancers but do not yet harbor metastatic deposits often show (A) follicular hyperplasia (B) paracortical hyperplasia (C) sinus histiocytosis (D) fibrous obliteration

A 55 year old male presents with pallor and easy fatigability. Physical exam showed massive splenomegaly. CBC showed marked leukocytosis, and a peripheral smear showed numerous neutrophils, metamyelocytes, and myelocytes. Basophils are also seen. A bone marrow aspirate shows a similar picture. This man likely has (A) a BCR-ABL fusion gene (B) a JAK2 mutation (C) an 8:22 translocation (D) an 11:22 translocation

A 28 year old female is found to have a mediastinal mass on chest xray during a preemployment medical exam. On history, she is found to have muscle fatigue that worsens as the day progresses. She undergoes surgery where her mediastinal mass is resected. Microscopic examination showed sheets of bland spindle cells with sparse inflammatory infiltrates. Her tumor is (A) a metastasis from an undiagnosed endometrial mass (B) a metastasis from an occult breast malignancy (C) a lymphoma(D) a thymoma
