I'm relatively sure that most people were 50:50 between bleach and drain cleaner.

letsdothis  Yeah, I spent maybe like 20 seconds on this question. I knew I wouldn't be able to reason this one out. +1
lilmonkey  Same thing. But then I remembered myself using bleach wipes with no gloves - didn't get any ulcers or even irritation. But drain cleaner is really strong shit as it can dissolve ("ulcerate") all this solid gunk. +4
charcot_bouchard  At least those chores paid off finally +5

I was desperately looking for cellulitis. I never did see it. Some say I'm still looking for it to this day.

welpdedelp  Same lol. A question I had was I thought lymphangitis was supposed to precede some sort of injury, obv not lol but was the lymph node the main giveaway? +1
keyseph  I think the key distinguishing features are the red streaks leading to an area of local lymphadenopathy. Otherwise, cellulitis would be a viable option if given. +6
charcot_bouchard  Cellulitis can lead to lymphangitis +1
notyasupreme  I thought lymphangitis is seen more with erysipelas +

"No bruits are heard over the neck"

I swear I cannot bang my face hard enough against a wall.

letsdothis  Me too. Un-friggin-believable +1
cinnapie  Yo @seagull I am a huge fan. I am a huge fan. I think we gave step 1 around the same time and now Step 2 CK. Anyway, keep up the good work, we need someone like you to add some humor to this fucking shit. Not all heroes wear capes!!!! +6
sheska  if no bruits then why should we do a carotid duplex goddd +
tinylilron  bruits probably are not sensitive or specific enough... duplex is probably a better test +3
lindasmith462  "everything is in the question for a reason" I tell myself "not everything is a trap. how many questions have you gotten wrong because you thought something was a trap? go based whats on the question for once self!" NBME going Admiral Ackbar on my butt over here. +2

(E) Pneumothorax

Benzo overdose --> intubation --> airway trauma --> pneumothorax


Wrong answers

(A) Aspiration PNA is possible with individuals prone to loss of consciousness, but would not be so acute! She was intubated then crashed 20 minutes later.

(B) Kerley B lines are indicative of pulmonary edema

(C) Pericardial effusion is characterized by Beck's Triad of hypotension, distended neck veins, and muffled heart sounds. And would not explain unilateral diminished breath sounds.

(D) pleural-based hump-shaped density probably describes a Hampton hump, which a wedge-shaped opacity in peripheral lung with its base at a thoracic wall. Caused by pulmonary infarction.
