Good morning, my crunchy, little intern nuggets. Today’s patient is a 26 year old woman who is presenting with the following symptoms:
-After spending a few hours out in the sun the patient noticed a rash not typical with a sunburn that was spreading across her face. The rash started out with an acne-like appearance and then became more scaly.
-Has been experiencing cramping and swelling in her hands.
-Frothy and tea colored urine
-Swelling in the ankles
-Chronic headaches resulting in dizziness and poor vision.
-episodes of shortness of breath and chest pains.
-ongoing, extreme exhaustion.
-sores and ulcers in the mouth.
-abdominal discomfort, nausea and vomiting resulting in weight loss.
Whoa. This chick is all screwed up and it’s up to the interns to figure out what is going on so that she may be treated effectively.
As usual, leave your diagnosis in the comments section… wrong answers will be posted, correct answers will not until the end of the day.
Interns who correctly diagnose the patient will be rewarded with THIS sexy moustache:
