arlenieeweenie  He also has seizures and pink-yellow papules, which I think they're trying to describe one of the characteristic ash-leaf or shagreen patches (doesn't sound like either of them to me lol) but that all points to tuberous sclerosis +
pg32  @arlenieeweenie I think they are actually trying to describe angiofibromas that appear on the face in tuberous sclerosis, though I still think their description is pretty bad haha +5

johnthurtjr  I think it may actually be a keloid, not a hypertrophic scar, as it expands beyond the borders of the original incision. +4
thepacksurvives  I believe this is a keloid; a hypertrophic scar does not extend past the borders of it's original incision, while a keloid does. regardless, the answer to this question is the same :) +

charcot_bouchard  They give granulation tissue is a option which is type 3 collagen. so if it was hypertrophic scar it would be ap problem since its only excessive growth of Type 3. while keloid is excessive growth of both 1 and 3 +3
bharatpillai  I literally ruled put collagen synthesis defect since this is not a collagen synthesis defect at all ( EDS, Scurvy) :/ hate these kind of questions +

medschul  Wouldn't Fanconi syndrome also cause hypokalemia though? +3
yotsubato  Especially considering the fact that the DCT will be working in overdrive to compensate for lost solutes??? +1
nala_ula  This question did not make sense to me at all. I knew it was Fanconi syndrome yet didn't select the obvious answer because it said "follow up examination 1 week after diagnosis". I thought it would already be in treatment... I searched (now) and it says that treatment is basically replenishing was is lost in the urine. So definitely the wording is like wtf to me +1
sugaplum  I was thinking since it affected the PCT that Na resorption would be affected as well? But I guess the other segments will pick up the slack? +
