Discussion: Abnormal findings on examinations

Ted is a 38 yo male (established patient) who presents to your office due to 9-month history of fatigue, weight loss of approximately 10lbs in the last 3-6 months, and night sweats. His only significant previous medical history was the repair of a ventricular septal defect and patent ductus arteriosus as an infant. He took no prescribed or over-the-counter medications, had never smoked cigarettes, ETOH use: 2-3 drinks per week and pt mentions that he had a twin brother that died 3 years ago.

Abnormal findings on examination were hepatosplenomegaly and supraclavicular, axillary, and inguinal lymphadenopathy.

Question 1

What other questions would you ask the patient?

Question 2

What systems should be included in his exam and why? (I have already given you a few hints)

Question 3

After asking more questions Ted admits that he has abdominal pain, vomiting with large meals occasionally, and noticed he has trouble with swallowing during meals unless he has “lots of water”. Based on the information you have be given, what are at least 3 differential diagnoses you may consider?

Question 4

What further investigation/work-up would a provider consider (labs, scans, referrals)?

Question 5

What type of follow-up would you schedule for this patient and why?

 

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
