dr_conference #Repost from @medicalboardreview with @repostapp --- Answer is B. This patient is suffering from Cushing’s disease, which is caused by hypersecretion of ACTH from a pituitary adenoma. These benign tumors are generally small (< 5 mm), 98% are located on the anterior pituitary, and are more common in women than men. Rarely these benign tumors can grow enough to place pressure on the optic chiasm causing visual disturbances (most commonly bitemporal hemianopia) that can be found during physical examination. Other key history and physical exam findings of Cushing’s disease are: truncal adiposity, muscle wasting, hirsutism, hypertension, thin skin, poor wound healing, purple striae, and psychological changes. Imaging and lab findings include: pituitary lesion, osteoporosis, hyperglycemia, glycosuria, elevated serum and urinary free cortisol, and lack of normal suppression by dexamethasone. Cushing’s disease is best treated by transsphenoidal selective resection of the pituitary adenoma. Other treatments include: stereotactic pituitary radiosurgery (gamma knife) or conventional radiation therapy. If these and medical therapies fail, the final definitive cure is bilateral total adrenalectomy. Patients that undergo this procedure require lifelong daily glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid replacement.
Cushing’s disease causes Cushing’s syndrome. Cushing’s syndrome refers to the manifestations of excessive corticosteroids (listed above). The most common cause of Cushing’s syndrome is iatrogenic excessive administration of exogenous corticosteroids. Other causes include: ectopic ACTH syndrome (from non-pituitary ACTH-secreting neoplasms), Cushing’s disease, and adrenal tumors.

The other cranial nerve choices are not likely to be effected by suprasellar extension of the adenoma.

masterbaxter8 Ever wonder why an "Epiphany" would be considered such an amazing event? Divine understanding that cannot be acquired by force or study but through luck. Usually an epiphany can happen to someone who is going through struggle or someone who has a particular set of strong values one believes are correct, just to be awakened the true realization of self and all that is past present future. In the past you will hear about oracles and prophets. Even today the Matrix movies are based on oracles and prophecies of which is fact based. Ever wonder why in old pictures / ancient paintings it shows a golden circle around heads of holy people and their hearts at times in paintings? This circle is all the artist can do to show what the real reality of the situation at hand. This is because we at our best and healthiest are biomagnetic we have a highly functioning frequency and electrical current flowing through us. This shows up as a sphere around your head, a circle of extended consciousness that has both been lost and concealed. This is basic and fundamental but we are not taught this in school or even advanced teaching of this in medical school, it's forbidden. However people like Tesla knew the truth and saw no reason to patent this. Ever wonder about your pineal gland or the moon and it's place on your physiology? Actually at night your pineal gland acts a receiver to moon radiation, these strands start in the back of your eye ball and connect at your pineal gland. The pineal gland enhances your pituitary gland to create a third eye of consciousness. #pinealgland #thirdeye #frequency #moon #matrix #pituitary #epiphany #divinity #divine #higherself #health #wellness #truth 1w
  •   masterbaxter8 Even the fight between Edison and Tesla about DC and AC current was won by Tesla. Edison went further to show hatred for Tesla invention by showing AC current would be good for an invention called the electric chair. Wow serious hatred. Tesla still won in the end but never got to revel in as did Edison on his basic invention while he was still alive. 1w
