Dec. NaCl - general volume loss Dec. K+ - Diuretic (most diuretics, except K+ sparing ones, cause hypoK+) Inc. HCO3-& pH - Volume loss -> RAAS -> aldosterone causes K+ & H+ wasting -> metabolic alkalosis; She may be vomiting as well, which is another possible cause of met. alk. Inc PaCO2 - respiratory compensation for met. alk.

hello  Patient has normal Na.
hello  Lab data indicates serum bicab not ABG bicarb.

Is this saying there is vesicoureteral reflux? I could have sworm this same image was on form 20 or 21 and the answer was Wilms tumor

hello  Yes, it was. I think in both vignettes, the picture was basically irrelevant. Or another possible clue -- but definitely not needed to answer the Q. +1  
presidentdrmonstermd  My school uses old "retired" NBME questions for exams and I've also seen this exact same picture multiple times...w/ different scenarios I think. I tried remembering what the questions were but I guess it's mostly irrelevant. +1
