ally123  The flame hemmorhages are also a good buzz word for recognizing he has hypertensive retinopathy 2e chronic, uncontrolled HTN. Pt's with hypertensive retinopathy can also present with "cotton wool spots" and "macular star". Pics on FA 2019, p. 299 +2

"Postpartum cardiomyopathy, also known as peripartum cardiomyopathy, is defined as the new onset of heart failure between the last month of pregnancy and 5 months post-delivery with no determinable cause" - NCBI

ally123  In peripartum/postpartum cardiomyopathy, "Although the LV may NOT be dilated, the ejection fraction is nearly always reduced below 45%", so it doesn't always cause dilated cardiomyopathy, but always a decreased EF. https://emedicine.medscape.com/article/153153-overview +

passfail  I also just thoughtL: failure to secrete GH = tumor affecting anterior pituitary hormone --> anterior pituitary is derived from Rathke's pouch +  
ally123  "Due to the proximity of the tumor to the hormone-producing cells of the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland, there is significant endocrine dysfunction in most children and adolescents presenting with craniopharyngioma...Among the hormone deficiencies, growth hormone deficiency is the most common and is seen in approximately 75% of children with craniopharyngioma."

hello  As the poster indicates, the described patient has a defect in the urea cycle, specifically an ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency. Added for clarity to future readers. +  
ally123  For orotic aciduria, From FA 2019 p. 412, "Orotic acidura is inability to convert orotic acid to UMP (de novo pyrimidine synthesis pathway) because of defect in UMP synthase. Aut recessive. Presents in children as failure to thrive, developmental delay, and megaloblastic anemia refractory to folate and B12 (supplementation). NO hyperammonemia (vs. ornithine transcarbamylase def. which as increased orotic acid with hyperammonemia." +  
fataldose  Also it's not Carbamoylphosphate synthetase (I) deficiency because there would be only hyperammonemia, increased glutamine and decreased BUN but no orotic acid increase since carbamoyl phosphate isn't getting made and then shunted to pyrimidine synthesis pathway to get acted on by carbamoyl phosphate synthetase II as is the cause of increased orotic acid seen in OTC deficiency. +  
fataldose  If there is isolated elevated orotic acid and no urea defects or hyperammonemia then it's Orotic aciduria due to UMP synthase deficiency. If there if hyperammonemia and orotic acid increase then OTC deficiency. If there is hyperammonemia with no orotic acid increase then carbamoyl phosphate synthetase I deficiency. +2

whossayin  how can you differentiate the symptoms of cretinism from Down syndrome? +  
step1soon  @whossayin Down Syndrome: upslanting palpebral fissures, atlantoaxial instability, bent little finger, congenital heart disease, displacement of the tongue, excess skin on the back of the neck, flaccid muscles, hearing loss, immune deficiency, low-set ears, mouth breathing, obesity, obstructive sleep apnea, polycythemia, seborrheic dermatitis, single line on palm, thickening of the skin of the palms and soles, thyroid disease, or vision disorder +3  
ally123  I was confused about why the infant was jaundiced, and found this: "Hypothyroidism causes decreased rate of bilirubin conjugation, slows gut motility and impairs feeding, all contributing to jaundice." Source: http://www.pathophys.org/neonatal-hyperbilirubinemia/ +6
