[ash] 2 months old baby with obstructive hydroceph.he was born prematurely after 26 wks of gestation and developed seizures and hypoxia soon after birth.most likely diagnosis?1)arnold chiari malformation 2)germinal matrix hemorrhage 3)kernicterus 4)periventricular leukomalacia 5)ulegyria
[dua_frank] dunno ash could be 1
[dua_frank] or 5
[megs] arnold chgiari 2
[samantha] agree
[samantha] megs
[lanny] megs their IQ is borderline about 50
[dua_frank] lanny megs wanted us to calculate the boys IQ based on the q
[ash] the trick here is that its a premature baby so what could be the most likely cause?
[megs] lanny...i will cq...
[dua_frank] ash tell us
[lanny] ok megs cause many do function
[megs] there is a point

[megs] can u explain it ash???
[lanny] key here is premature
[ash] sure megs after someone tells what is germinal matrix
[ash] right lanny
[ash] so what is germinal matrix?
[dua_frank] dunno
[ash] it is neuroectodermal precursors lining the ventricles
[ash] seen between weeks 22 and 30 of iul
[megs] oh thanx ash
[lanny] its some tissue left in the brain that did not regress in premies since they born premature that tissue bleeds
[dua_frank] oh nice q
heelshmeel has left the chat.
[ash] well i saw this germinal matrix in 3 questions today so i had to ask
[lanny] it is tissue from neroectoderm
[ash] very good lanny
[dua_frank] which q bank ash?
[lanny] UW
[ash] kaplan bank and book and i think medrevu

[lanny] what accumulates is ceramide trihexos...
[lanny] no ash
[dua_frank] Fabry disease is a lipid storage disorder caused by the deficiency of an enzyme involved in the biodegradation of fats. The enzyme is known as ceramidetrihexosidase, also called alpha-galactosidase A.

[dua_frank] arnold chairi is herniation of cerebellar vermis
[megs] yes dua
[dua_frank] why apnea and stridor?
[dua_frank] pressure effects due to HC?
[dua_frank] The symptoms of both types of tumors generally relate to an increase in intracranial pressure (the pressure within the skull). These symptoms can include headache, nausea/vomiting, enlargement of the head and seizures. There can also be hemorrhaging in the carcinoma. Local invasion of the brain can cause weakness or paralysis on the side of the body opposite to the side of the tumor.

[dua_frank] didn't know that
[dua_frank] good point
[dua_frank] any specific reason why megs?
[dua_frank] why doesn't nerve conduction study help here?
[dua_frank] would show no conduction here too
[dua_frank] so whats so special about electromyogram?
[megs] sammy right for MG
[lanny] actually i knew only MG for EMG studies didnt know the others
[dua_frank] sammy's just showing off :P
[megs] i just wanted to ask dua..when we do electromyography and when nerve conduction??
[samantha] repeated stimulation causes fatigue rt?
[samantha] so diagnostic?
[lanny] riht samm
[dua_frank] oh ok thats electromyogram?
[dua_frank] repeated stimulations
[megs] yeah sammy
[lanny] isnt EMG shows the 3 mm spike and wave???
[samantha] no...dua
[samantha] :p
[lanny] oh thats EEG?
