thepacksurvives  Yeah, this was my issue. I got it wrong because of this-- still don't understand the logic bc you can get chlamydia multiple times +5  
hungrybox  FUCK you're right. Damn I didn't even think about that. That's fucking dumb. I guess this is why nobody gets perfect scores on this exam lol. Once you get smart enough, the errors in the questions start tripping you up. Lucky for me I'm lightyears behind that stage lmao +9  
usmile1  to make it even more poorly written, it says they are doing a screening program for FIRST YEAR women college students. So one year later, are they following this same group of students, or would they be screening the incoming first years? +5  
dashou19  I think the same at first, but after a second read, the question stem said "additional" 200 students, which means the first 500 students don't count. +  
santal  @hungrybox You are me. +2  
neovanilla  @usmile1 I was thinking the exact same thing... +1  
happyhib_  I agree this is a trash question; I was like well if this is done yearly for new freshman the following year would be of the new class (but the word additional made me go against this). Also you could assume that they were treated and no longer have the disease... I dont like it honestly but know for incidence they want you to not include those with disease so i just went with dogma questions on incidence to get to 10% +

priapism  Best I can guess is that both S. aureus and E. faecalis can cause UTI, but S. aureus is described as having clusters where as the other Gm+ cocci are in chains +6  
nala_ula  My doubt here in this question is the fact that Enterococcus faecalis is a normal gut microorganism that causes these different symptoms of sickness after genitoruinary or gastrointestinal procedures... but in this question there is no mention of any procedures. +  
fez_karim  its says chains, so not staph. only other is entero +  
temmy  according to first aid, staph aureus is not one of the high yield bugs for UTIs +1  
temmy  uti bugs are E.Coli Staph saprophyticus Klebsiella pneumonia Serratia Marcescens Enterococcus Proteus mirabilis Pseudomonad aeruginosa +  
privatejoker  Where in FA 2019 does it list that C.coccus is specifically in chains? +  
privatejoker  E.Coccus* i mean +

jennybones  @privatejoker Enterococcus is Group-D STREP. Streps are arranged in chains. +2  
santal  FA 2019 Page 639, too. +  
backwardsprogress  Enteroccocus is also a pretty common cause of chronic prostatitis, which was the give away in the prompt if you didnt know the characteristics of entero: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3715713/ +
