Long Case with Prof. How

Patient 1

35-year-old intravenous drug user with underlying Hepatitis C, presented with 3 days history of high-grade fever associated with lethargy. Last heroine injection was two days prior admission. Patient had history of needle sharing.

Physical examination revealed a medium build man lying in 45' propped up position. Clubbing was noted. There was no stigmata of IE and no sign of heart failure. Vital signs normal. On cardiovascular examination, JVP was not raised. Pansystolic murmur was heard at left sternal edge, grade 3/6, no radiation, prominent on inspiration, presence of pulsatile liver. Other systemic examinations were normal.

1. Provisional diagnosis?
Infective Endocarditis without complication

2. Complications of IE?

  • Cardiac lesions eg. aortic root abscess leads to complete AV block and left ventricular failure
  • Immune complex deposition eg. vasculitis, glomerulonephritis
  • Embolic phenomenon eg. abscesses in brain, heart, kidney, spleen, gut, lung


3. HIV symptoms and signs?


Taken from this website

4. Investigations?

  • Blood C&S taken 3 sets at different time and site 
  • FBC to check for anemia and leukocytosis
  • UFEME for microscopic haematuria
  • LFT because this patient has Hep C, look at liver enzymes, albumin
  • HIV/VDRL screening
  • ESR/CRP will be raised
  • ECHO to look for any valve vegetations
  • CXR to look for cardiomegaly
  • ECG to look for long PR interval

5. If this patient's albumin is low in LFT, what test do you want to do next?
Do PT/APTT to look at coagulopathy, because low albumin may indicate liver cirrhosis.

6. If this patient's AST and ALT raised, do you want to treat?
Yes, we treat hepatitis by giving PEGinterferon alpha 2a/2b and Ribavirin.

7. Duke criteria for IE?


Taken from this website

8. Which antibiotics you give?

  • For right-sided Staph aureus : Gentamicin + Cloxacillin

Patient 2

75-year-old female with underlying COPD, bronchiectasis and pulmonary TB on maintenance phase, presented with 3 days history of fever and 2 days history of shortness of breath and haemoptysis.

Physical examination revealed a cachexic elderly female, looked pale and lethargic, on nasal prong. Patient afebrile, RR 30, BP 120/70, HR 84, SpO2 95% under NP. BCG scar present. No leg edema. 

On respiratory examination, trachea shifted to the right. Chest expansion reduced at lower zone of right lung, with reduced air entry, dullness on percussion. Bibasal crepitations present.

On cardiovascular examination, JVP was not raised. Pansystolic murmur was heard at lower left sternal edge.

  • Isoniazid : hepatitis, neuropathy, pyridoxine deficit, agranulocytosis
  • Rifampicin : hepatitis, orange discolouration of urine and tears, flu-like syndrome
  • Ethambutol : optic neuritis

Night 'Revisionn'

Studying can be boring sometimes. It's just too much to read and revise.


I never meant to break your heart
I won't let this plane go down
I never meant to make you cry
I'll do what it takes to make this fly

You gotta hold on
Hold on to what you're feeling
That feeling is the best thing
The best thing, alright
I'm gonna place my bet on us
I know this love is heading in the same direction
That's up

These two are my favs! :D
G'dnight y'all!

Long Case with Dr. Nik Fatnoon

Patient 1

A 23-year-old female presented with worsening shortness of breath for two days duration and progressive bilateral leg swelling for one day duration. She has Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, hypertension and chronic kidney disease. No evidence of liver or heart failure.

Physical examination revealed a morbidly obese patient, pale but not jaundiced. Edema was noted up to mid thigh bilaterally. Patient afebrile, BP 138/84, HR 84, RR 14, SpO2 96 under room air. Urine dipstick was not done. All systemic examinations were normal.

1. Provisional diagnosis?
Fluid overload secondary to chronic kidney disease

2. Investigations?
ABG first, because patient might die of respiratory fatigue. Then do ECG to look for acute coronary event, rule out heart failure. If ECG has acute changes and ABG has acidosis, then you cannot dialyse patient! Third, do RP to look at increase level of urea and creatinine. Others: CXR, FBC, 24h urinary protein, LFT.

3. Management?
Since this patient presented with SOB, resuscitate first. Based on ABG and SpO2 result, give oxygen. Monitor and adjust accordingly. 

For leg swelling, give oral or IV Frusemide. Insert branula. Dose depends on response. Monitor urine output. If patient's condition does not improve, consider peritoneal dialysis. Put patient on restriction of fluid, depends on this patient's previous ROF.

Manage the cause of fluid overload. Does the patient has sepsis? Any drugs given? Patient non-compliant? Manage precipitating factors. 

Manage complications of worsening renal failure like uremia, uremic encephalopathy or sepsis. Manage risk factors: DM and HPT.


Patient 2

58-year-old female presented with jaundice and tea-coloured urine for three weeks duration. She had history of taking herbal medications one month prior to the symptoms. She had history of left breast carcinoma 10 years ago, mastectomy done and 6 cycles of chemotherapy completed in HTAA.

Physical examination revealed a thin build female who looked lethargic and dehydrated. She was on IV hydration and urinary catheter. She had generalised jaundice of body and eyes. Patient afebrile, BP 130/90. 

On abdomen examination, tenderness noted at epigastric area. Liver was palpable 3cm below costal margin. Shifting dullness was positive. No stigmata of chronic liver diseases or metastasis. Breast examination revealed 6cm scar at left breast from mastectomy. Right breast was normal. Other systemic examination was normal.

1. Provisional diagnosis?
Hepatitis secondary to taking herbal medications

2. Investigations?
LFT, PT/APTT, Hep B/C viral screening, FBC, RP, US HBS, LDH.

3. Management?
No need to resuscitate because she was well! The jaundice was caused by herbal medications, so stop the medications and monitor patient. Anticipate all the complications of jaundice like hepatic encephalopathy, acute bleeding secondary to coagulopathy, acute renal failure secondary to hepatorenal syndrome and hypoglycemia.
