niboonsh  the question is asking what would happen to the URINARY ph, bicarb, and volume. dont worry, i misread the question too -_- +12  
link981  Also misread the question, thought about the lab volumes of the BLOOD smh +5  
hyperfukus  yooooo me too!!! this is the second NBME i did this on they purposely don't write urine on the arrow categories to mess u up i swear!!! AHHHHHH +2  
medulla  missed this question for the same reason .. still pissed +2  
osler_weber_rendu  I DID NOT READ "URINARY" OH NOOOOOO. Im so dumb. +2

liverdietrying  It's lupus, all the symptoms listed are classic especially the serositis. Anterior chamber of the eye = uveitis. Choroid plexus = cerebritis. For a great overview, check out this (free) video: +5  
in_a_pass_life  I think this was reactive arthritis, not lupus. Choroid plexus not just in the brain, also in eye (can’t see, can’t pee, can’t climb a tree). Mechanism of reactive arthritis is immune complex deposition, per UWorld, which was correct answer. +5  
trichotillomaniac  The inside of the eye is divided into two chambers: the anterior chamber and the posterior chamber. Both chambers contain fluid, and when there’s inflammation in the eye, a specialist can often see inflammatory cells in the fluid. +  
trichotillomaniac  I agree that this is Lupus after doing some more research! +1  
nwinkelmann  I find this article describing the SLE ocular manifestations, including uveitis and cerebritis. Also this talks about the lupus cerebritis (choroid plexus inflammation): +  
medulla  every time I read about Lupus there is something new!! +1

bubbles  Thanks for the explanation! Do you know why Mg would not be a potential answer? Phosphate also accumulates in those with undialyzed renal failure, so I was thinking that maybe magnesium as a divalent cation would complex with PO3 (in a mechanism similar to Ca). +  
nwinkelmann  From the little bit of research I just did (because I didn't learn anything about dialysis at my medical school), ESRD can be associated with either low or high Mg levels, so the dialysate can cause either increased or decreased Mg levels depending on the patient's serum content, therefore I don't think based on this question, would could determine if removal of dialysis would lead to elevated or decreased magnesium. The end of the first article seems to favor ESRD leading to hypermagnesemia, so if that's the case, then removal of dialysis would cause Mg to increase as well. and +1  
hyperfukus  why is it that we aren't learning this stuff and they r just throwing it on step there's barely a blurb in FA about ckd/eskd +1  
hyperfukus  does uremia potentially have to do with this? +  
medulla  ESRD and not getting dialysis -> he is uremic -> met acidosis -> dec bic +11  
angelaq11  @medulla this is the best and simplest explanation. I got it wrong and chose Mg, wish I had made that connection. +
