d_holles  Yeah the negative EtOH screen threw me off +3  
dr_jan_itor  Why cant it be early alzheimers and hippocampus? She could easily have been a former prominent physician and member of city council. Am i supposed to assume that simply because shes disheveled and poor hygeine that she must be an alcoholic homeless person? It also mentions no symptoms of nystagmus, ataxia, etc. +2  
kimcharito  it said broad based gait and nystagmus +9  
lilmonkey  She is/was an alcoholic and appears pretty much homeless, just not drunk at this moment. +  
fatboyslim  @ dr janitor. The question says "physical exam shows a broad-based gait and nystagmus." +  
suckitnbme  NBME questions also stereotype the shit out of their patients +5

Anyone find it strange that the NBME loves to write questions where physicians are alcoholics?

athenathefirst  Their job is to find our flaws haha +  
tadki38097  this patient isn't actually a physician, they are trying to show that the patient has confabulation (making up stuff but truly believing it) +  
sarahs  good point...negative alcohol screening threw me off +

Ppl remember that if you get shit face drunk, wait a day and then take a ETOH screen, its not going to be positive. Don't necessarily rule out alcoholism if an ETOH screen is negative
