isnt increased alk phos consistent with increased osteoblastic activity?
@pakimd Yes ! ALK phos is a measure of osteoblast work, if the are not working is LOW as in thix px.
Above is obviously incorrect because the answer is Meningeal lol.
Here is a link to a good picture:
Obviously thomas is disagreeing with the presentation of the question, and I agreed with him! This absolutely sounds like GBM, with rapid onset leading to death, and the symptoms. The question stem leads you to GBM, and the gross image to meningioma (I guess).
Furthermore, where are the meninges on the gross image form which this (meningioma) grew?! It should at least show the tissue from whence it came!
Had the same problem, got confused since it appeared that the growth was malignant :(
FA 2019 pg 514, also agree with everyone. weird presentation. Glios are malignant death within 1 year, meningioma are often asymptomatic or have focal signs.
just a gross pathology question at this point
I believe this question was stating that AchE activity was abnormal = it was not lowering the Ach activity. Which suggests that another ligand like Ach was being used.
