Did you get the question wrong?
I love how this cant be straight forward. All the other proteins are either subunits of desmosomes or cytoskeletal components. Because I know molecular biology that well on top of the majority of medicine....FML
@seagull: excellent comment, literally loling right now
or sobbing and threatening to hold my breath if they don't make it stop
WHY DIDN'T THEY JUST PUT HEMIDESMOSOMES THE FUCK
Im mad at how simple this question actually is
Incidence is measured from those AT RISK. People with the disease are not considered to be at risk. So 2500 - 500 = 2000 people at-risk. Of those 2000, within one year 200 develop the disease. So 200/2000 of the at-risk population develop the disease. 20/2000 = 10% = incidence
Yup you got it. AIS is a defect with the androgen receptor in target tissues, not with the hormones. AIS has the same presentation: Genotypically XY but has female external genitalia and male internal genitalia. This is most likely 5-alpha reductase deficiency.
Understood, but is there anything in the question that rules out BPH specifically? I honed in on the words "most likely" and saw he was 60. I guess I overthought it but I'd appreciate any insight as to what if anything in the Q makes that definitively wrong.
I think the question stem, with the trauma and fractures, points you in the direction of membranous urethral trauma. Pelvic fractures are more associated with urethra damage than prostate damage, although they're right next to each other, and I can see why someone would choose prostate hypertrophy. Also, I'm not sure if bleeding is associated with BPH.
could someone explain why urethral stricture is incorrect?
The key for this question was recognizing that the pelvis was fractured = unique only to posterior urethral injuries (FA 2020 p. 627), and after was to realize that you'd have an urethral disruption/tear
