And so, a happy ending.
It always makes me smile to see things work out.

A Place for Autism
I’ve been having a difficult time logging into ‘Blackboard’ today to post the questions for chapter 10 of Autism’s False Prophets. Although I don’t like posting any required material here, I’d rather get it out there, so if you are in my pathology class, please spread the word to other students to check in here.
Before you start, check out this video mentioned towards the back of the chapter…

“For many parents, the advice given by heathcare professionals about vaccines is just one more opinion in a sea of opinions offered by the internet.”
-Offit, chapter 10
A 25 yo man presents at the ER with abrupt, intense pain in the right flank and ipsilateral lower abdomen. In addition to abdominal pains, he also feels pain in the right testicle and has had to urinate frequently and always with pain. Imaging was done to aid in assessment.
Given this information, what diagnosis might you suggest? Explain the symptoms and what is revealed by the imaging. What treatment do you suggest?
As always, I invite students and non-students to submit multiple choice questions appropriate for the upcoming exam on the Renal System (Physiology and Pathophysiology questions). Post questions with answers (three wrong and one right) in the comments section below.
Also, here’s an opportunity for two points of extra credit on the upcoming exam:
Submit your answer quick – only the first correct response (also posted in comments) earns points. I will try to post several more questions over the weekend – note, these extra credit vignettes may come from any of the chapters we studied this semester)
A 62 year old man presented at the ER with sudden sensation of food being caught in his throat while swallowing. The patient is highly agitated and convinced he is choking although he appears to be getting air.
What is the diagnosis?
As I’ve been doing lately, I wanted to offer the opportunity to my students (and anyone else who would like to) to submit questions for the Respiratory Unit Exam of my Pathophysiology class. Topics covered on this exam will focus primarily on the outline below. However, I wish to remind students that they are responsible for all the material covered in chapters 21-23 of Porth’s Essentials of Pathophysiology.
To submit questions, please provide a fully worked out multiple choice question in the comments section below. Also indicate the correct answer.
Respiratory Pathophysiology Outline (Please, forgive the formatting below, I’m having trouble fixing this appropriately in the browser):
*The distinction between Typical and Atypical pneumonia appears to be more historic than clinically valuable. For this reason, on our exam we will continue to call S. pneumoniae the most common form of ‘Typical’ pneumonia, but otherwise not use these terms.
