A man with a Hx of EtOH dependence and chronic abd pain as well as X-ray findings of "calcifications in the mid-upper abdomen" is most likely referring to a chronic pancreatitis.
This leads to a lack of lipase secretion hence, pale, foul-smelling stools with oil droplets per pt Hx. This pt's pancreas also doesn't secrete other enzymes, such as amylases, proteases, nor trypsinogen (to activate other enzymes), so the answer is "generalized malabsorption".
F**K this question!
Know exactly what the disease is without knowing what the f**king "generalized malabsorption" means!!
