WTF is "weakness of plantar dorsiflexion" ????? it's like saying "extension flexion" This is not the only obvious technical mistake in the new NBMEs ...

The way I approached this problem was, schizophrenia doesn't have a clear pattern of inheritance. Among the option choices, only Type 1 DM doesn't have a clear inheritance pattern (eg: CF is auto recessive, Fragile X is XD, and so on).

PCA stroke can cause "prosopagnosia" which is the inability to recognize familiar faces. Caused by bilateral lesions of visual association areas, which are situated in the inferior occipitotemporal cortex (fusiform gyrus). The ability to name parts of the face (e.g., nose, mouth) or identify individuals by other cues (e.g., clothing, voices) is left intact.

Without knowing that, remembering occipital lobe is involved in 'visual stuff' broadly, including image processing and this patient is having issues with understanding images should be enough to get to the answer.

gonyyong  Lol I guessed it exactly because of that +1  
sympathetikey  Never heard of that one before. Thanks! +1  
karthvee  This is not prosopagnosia, but instead a case of apperceptive agnosia. Wiki: "...patients are more effective at naming two attributes from a single object than they are able to name one attribute on each of the two superimposed objects. In addition they are still able to describe objects in detail and recognize objects by touch." Although, lesions tend to be in the occipito-parietal area so PCA again is the answer! +1
