While the lifetime risk in the general population is just below 1%, it is 6.5% in first-degree relatives of patients and it rises to more than 40% in monozygotic twins of affected people. Analyzing classic studies of the genetics of schizophrenia done as early as in 1930s, Fischer concludes that a concordance rate for psychosis of about 50% in monozygotic twins seems to be a realistic estimate, which is significantly higher than that in dizygotic twins of about 10–19% (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4623659/#ref3)

imnotarobotbut  How is one supposed to know this before having read this article? +3  
imgdoc  This question falls under the either you know it or you dont category. It isnt in FA or Uworld +  
jaxx  So why would these A-holes put it on there as if prepping for this exam isn't stressful enough :-| +  
doodimoodi  Lol just why seriously +  
champagnesupernova3  This was mentioned in the Kaplan behavioral videos +  

"she feels happier and more relaxed" after starting kickboxing: this is a MATURE defense mechanism (classic textbook sublimation, as has been said). This question is just plain wrong. It's not displacement, because it's a healthy, socially acceptable outlet that improves her emotional state; punching bags are meant to be punched (thus it is actually NOT neutral). Displacement to an object would be punching a hole in her wall, or breaking her vase (I just like that imagery). Both of those would be better than punching her family, or breaking their car window, which is why it's displacement (unconscious redirection of an emotion to a safer object). However, kickboxing is LITERALLY an example in several psych textbooks for sublimation. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.

jaxx  Meanwhile, I thought everything was wrong so I went with another Mature defense mechanism. +

Patient has BPH. Give alpha one antagonist to reduce smooth muscle contraction and relieve difficulty urinating.

d_holles  lol i thought it was some kind of urinary retention problem and put H. +4  
sbryant6  How is H wrong? Oxybutinin or tolterodine treat urinary incontinence by blocking M3 muscarinic acetylcholine receptors --> urinary retention. We're just supposed to assume they are talking about BPH here because he is old? +  
jaxx  I agree. I picked "H" for that same logic. Does anyone know where we should have come to the conclusion that this was BPH? +  
forerofore  they are telling you he's having "difficulty urinating", one of the clinical criteria for BPH is reduced urinary flow rate. this is not incontinence because they are not telling you he leaks at all, just that he pees "a lot" +1
