The “creeping” skin lesions are diagnostic of CLM

The pustular rash across the patient’s buttocks & back is likely secondary to CLM folliculitis—a rarer, but well-described skin manifestation of CLM

#Doctor #MedEd ImageImage
The patient’s cough and chest radiograph findings are characteristic of Loeffler syndrome, a recognized but rare complication of CLM.

CLM is caused by the infective stage larvae of animal hookworms from the family Ancylostomidae.

2/ police station, complaints filed in criminal courts, summons by court to private doctors to appear as a witness with medical record of a patient, cases in civil court for damages, steps a doctor can take if he perceives threats from a patient, etc.

3/ First basic principles : An error in diagnosis (or Judgement) is not by itself a negligence. If a patient dies during an operation or immediately after surgery, is by itself not a medical negligence.

Exactly 7 years ago, I spent #StrokeAwarenessDay undergoing emergency #thrombectomy for #basilar artery occlusion. #BAO

Today, I'm still in awe and celebrating how #modern #medicine saved me from locked-in syndrome and enabled me to live a normal life, against all odds.

1/ 🧵
2/ So far, I have avoided sharing this information as part of my professional life, fearing it would somehow disqualify me as a credible clinician-scientist. Finally, I realize that the experience only strengthened my resolve to give future patients the second chance I was given.
3/ What happened in brief:

I was a healthy, 25yo medical student, all excited to have finished the first 10K run of my life not even 5 hours before my family reacted #FAST and called 911.

Duration of Antibiotic Therapy
Deciding on the duration of antimicrobial therapy for an infection is neither straightforward nor simple. 👇
#MedTwitter #MedEd #USMLE #FOAMed #hospitalist #mbbs #medicine #doctor
#medschool #MedStudentTwitter #medstudent #TwitterRx

Most ID guidelines are based- either expert opinions or evidence-based medicine. Historically, duration of ABX Rx were based on arbitrary extension of days(magic numbers like 7, 10 & 14 days) rather than on reliable evidence with the main aim to ⬇️ failures & avoid underRx.

There is growing evidence to support for shorter courses. It is important for prescribers to be up to date with best practices. Duration of therapy plays a pivotal role in antimicrobial stewardship programme within the global effort to optimize antibiotic use &⬇️resistance.

4-chloro-N-(2-furyl-methyl)-5-sulfamoyl-anthranilic acid, member of the sulfa’s. Potent natriuretic drug, inhibits Na+-K+-2Cl− cotransporter in the ascending limb of the loop of Henle.
Direct Vd effects results in its therapeutic effectiveness in the Rx of acute pulm edema.

Vasodilation leads to reduced responsiveness to vasoconstrictors, such as angiotensin II and noradrenaline, and decreased production of endogenous natriuretic hormones with vasoconstricting properties.

Edema of the deep dermis & subcutaneous tissues.

Etiology, types and treatments👇👇👇👇⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️👇👇👇👇


#MedTwitter #MedEd #USMLE #FOAMed #hospitalist #mbbs #medicine #doctor
Mast cell–derived mediators tend to affect layers superficial to subcutaneous tissue, including the dermal-epidermal junction. These mediators cause urticaria & pruritus.

In bradykinin-mediated angioedema, the dermis is usually spared, so urticaria & pruritus are absent.

Primary AI results from destruction or replacement of the adrenal cortex. Addison’s disease (autoimmune destruction of the adrenal cortex) accounts for 80% to 90% of primary AI. Image

So, I’m getting ready for work today, tying up the ol’ scrubs and peek at my phone - I see a message, sent last night from the ER doc stating that one of my patients, a young Black man admitted for Sickle cell pain crisis...

..., wanted to leave and the doc was okay with discharging because the patient’s pain seemed to have resolved. Ok, I get to the 🏥and my team informs me the patient is still in-house (in the ED – No beds on the floors.

The ED is overflowing, so we have patients admitted and waiting in the ED for a bed for daaaays on end. Coupled with the ED being short-staffed - yeah…not good) and didn’t leave, after my wonderful senior resident convinced him to stay and receive more analgesia (pain meds)
