I think this is a Meckel diverticulum presentation!

alinton  Agreed-Confused b/c Meckel Diverticulum is legit the classic example of a choristoma (p. 221 FA 2019) Maybe they're thinking gastric mucosa is a more specific answer? Idk +1

Is the decrease in baroreceptor output due to the body adapting to the hypertension?

azibird  Apparently. "Baroreceptor activity is reset during sustained increases in blood pressure so that in patients with essential hypertension, baroreceptor responsiveness is maintained." "It is a universally accepted phenomenon that vascular baroreceptors reset to operate at higher pressure levels in hypertension." Okay, so they can reset to normal levels, but wouldn't this patient already have undergone their reset? Why would the receptors further decrease? I thought that eventually their LV would hypertrophy and fail, leading to decreased stroke work. +1
azibird  From Costanzo Physiology: "The sensitivity of the baroreceptors can be altered by disease. For example, in chronic hypertension (elevated blood pressure), the baroreceptors do not “see” the elevated blood pressure as abnormal. In such cases, the hypertension will be maintained, rather than corrected, by the baroreceptor reflex. The mechanism of this defect is either decreased sensitivity of the baroreceptors to increases in arterial pressure or an increase in the blood pressure set point of the brain stem centers." +6

This question is worded extremely poorly-- Basically I looked at it as if 1) the twin studies showed that it was 50% genetic 2) the other studies only found loci accounting for a small percent of that heritability

Based on 1 & 2 you can get to the answer

The pt has sarcoidosis via the classic demographic association and the b/l hilar adenopathy

in sarcoid you get increased ACE and you also get hypercalcemia due to increased 1-alpha-hydroxylase (via acitvated macrophages) which leads to increased vitamin D

Holosystolic murmur--> think mitral or tricuspid regurg Based on the location (APTM) the murmur is heard over the "T" area

furthermore, murmurs that increase in intensity upon inspiration due to increased venous return to the RH are RIGHT SIDED

late onset CAH w/ 21 hydroxylase defiency--> excess androgens (increased facial hair and irregular menses, etc), salt wasting (low BP), increased 17-hydroxyprogesterone is key

11B problem= HTN and excess androgens 17a problem= HTN and decreased androgens 5a reductase converts testosterone to DHT 3B-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase is involved in steroid synthesis earlier in the pathway

bingcentipede  If you see HYPOtension in a CAH question, it's gotta be 21-hydroxylase! +1
bingcentipede  My special friend just gave me a mnemonic for this that I did not know. If the 1 is the 1st digit (11, 17) = hypertension. If there is a 1 in the 2nd digit (11, 21) = virilization. +1

angelaq11  @hyperfukus I had the same problem at first, marked it and then came back. If you remember, in the spinal cord the white matter and gray matter are "reversed" compared to the brain. That said, if the butterfly shaped region (ie, the gray matter) is colored (in this case) lilac and the rest (ie, white matter) is blackish, the only thing that is actually abnormal, is the region where the dorsal columns are, because it stains just like the normal gray matter. After that, you have to think about which fasciculus is damaged, the gracilis or the cuneatus. The gracilis is medial while the cuneatus is lateral (picture someone with glued legs and open arms). Hope this helped +10
