I actually think he might have iron-deficiency anemia that can be described as pallor or "yellowing of the skin." He does not have jaundice (anicteric sclera) Patients who are strict vegans can develop iron deficiency. The best way to correct this is to encourage a dietary change

bethune  Why is pulmonary hypertension incorrect? +  
samsam3711  PEEP allows the alveoli to remain slightly open with exhalation to prevent atelectasis. Pulmonary Hypertension is going to be related to vascular changes (instead you might see shunting of blood in areas of poor ventilation) +1  
drzed  Pulmonary HTN occurs because of pulmonary vessel vasoconstriction. This can occur d/t multiple factors, but one of the most important ones is hypoxic vasoconstriction that the lungs will undergo (for example, at altitude). In the setting of PEEP, you are ventilating the lungs perfectly; this allows for the pulmonary vessels to open up and not undergo vasoconstriction. Thus, you prevent pulmonary hypertension via hypoxia. +  
peridot  @drzed by your logic, you're arguing for D to be the answer but the correct answer was about preventing atelectasis +  
medstudent  The question is what’s key. The purpose of PEEP is to keep the airway open. The purpose of ventilation with supplemental oxygen can help with preventing pulm HTN. Could be wrong, but that’s what makes sense to me. +

drachenx  Chancroid is described as an ulcer.. whilst in this question they mentioned "vesicles". Pretty much only herpes is vesicular +6  
whoissaad  They mentioned ulcers too. I chose chancroid as well, couldn't find a clue to rule it out. Also thought "discharge" was pointing you towards a bacterial infection. But guess I'm wrong :) +  
emmy2k21  I think NBME/USMLE writers make the assumption the patient is in America unless specified otherwise. Chancroid is not common in the US. If the question stem mentions a developing country, then chancroid can make your differential list. +1  
selectuw  for chancroid, there may be a mention of inguinal lymphadenopathy +2  
samsam3711  Also with chancroid questions they want you to differentiate it between chancroid and syphilis, (eg. Painful vs. painless) and is usually described as a much larger ulcer that is painful (not vesicular as in this question) +  
suckitnbme  Also believe that chancroid does not presents with systemic symptoms like in this vignette. +

readit  *same goes for saccular aneurysm, which also is usually 2/2 trauma +  
samsam3711  In the question stem there is no indication of trauma so it would be hard to just assume that +  
almondbreeze  see my comment above for marfan syndrome. might help +  
drzed  This is because a pseudoaneurysm is between the media and adventitia, and is incited by trauma; a dissection is between the intima and the media and is a result of hypertension causing an intimal tear. The history points toward cocaine -> hypertension rather than penetrating trauma. +

notadoctor  COPII* proteins are needed to coat vesicles from the RER to Golgi. "Two(COPII) steps forward; one(COPI) step back." Anterograde goes RER -> Golgi -> Lysosomes/Secretory Vesicles -> Plasma membrane +23  
titanesxvi  why not small lysosomes? +3  
varunmehru  and I thought large lysosomes due to lack of enzymes to degrade +  
samsam3711  The size of the lysosome is not affected by the presence or absence of protein, but its function is compromised (eg. protein is getting stuck in the RER) +  
fattyacid  I hope this helps to whomever was lost like me Null mutation: A mutation (a change) in a gene that leads to its not being transcribed into RNA and/or translated into a functional protein product. For example, a null mutation in a gene that usually encodes a specific enzyme leads to the production of a nonfunctional enzyme or no enzyme at all. +2  
pingra  I think you made a typo: COPII (RER -> cis-Golgi); COPI (trans-golgi -> cis-golgi and cis-golgi -> RER), clathrin (endocytosis and trans-golgi -> lysosome) +  
kevin  So my thought process was if there is no COP signal then instead of going to Golgi it would be sent astray into cytoplasm, akin to how in I-cell Dx the enzymes get sent out of the cell since there is no trafficking signal (therefore I presumed large lysosome due to eating the aggregated protein). Are we saying without COP or Clathrin that the vesicle will simply stay put where it is? If I can get a reply before my exam (2 weeks) that'd be much appreciated +
