i think asymptomatic is really the key here -- good catch
sorry my bad this was the wrong question i responded to but i still got this one (ED one) and the gynecomastia one wrong
i think it's liver for this one because they say it has regenerative potential and because even though the small intestine has regenerative potential, it can apparently fibrose? i have no idea, i put small bowel
@bigbootycorgi : I put small intestine too. From what I've searched after, it says that liver fibrosis reversible -> no evidence of fibrous scarring
Just to add to that, a cirrhotic liver is a small shrunken liver so you wont be able to find hepatomegaly anyways. The other signs are the stigmata of Liver disease
When the answer is so obvious that you pick a stupid answer instead of it. DOH
Funny thing I noticed is "he is alert and cooperative. He appears to be in pain" So he was so high that he was alert and cooperative during the basal ganglia hemorrhage
@sympathetikey That fucking guy who drinks 2 six packs a day with liver failure got me like that.
probably the "drug" have to be a stimulant or a hallucinogen which causes HTN & Tachycardia.
Lol. I got the right answer but took long time
The patient's B.P. and pulse are raised + Bilateral dilated pupils = Most likely use of a stimulant
Thats how I reasoned it anyways
Bilateraly messed up pupils = Drugs (most of the time)
why is there basal ganglia hemorrhage?
Wait! doesn't it take like a week or two to get the results back!?!? i chose to measure catecholamine levels because that may be more timely. but clearly i'm wrong
basal ganglia hemorrhage is an intraparenchymal hemorrhage secondary to hypertension. according to FA, this occurs most commonly at the Basal Ganglia (FA19 pg 501)
