    Boards and Wards 3rd Edition - MISTAKES/ERRORS

    Advertisements



    MISTAKES FOUND WHILE READING BOARDS AND WARDS, 3RD EDITION BY AYALA/SPELLBERG.

    PLEASE POST YOUR FINDINGS with Table/Figure/Page info!!!


    Here are some I found posted on the web:

    1. Table 1-33, Bart's is an abnormal hemoglobin composed of 4 gamma chains (not 4 Beta).

    2. Table 1-37, IVIG is NOT a treatment for TTP but it IS a treatment for ITP.

    3. Table 3-13, a benign tumor of the ovary is a cystadenOMA, NOT a cystadenoCARCINOMA.

    4. Table 5-13, Dog bites that are "provoked" are LESS likely to be associated with rabies while unprovoked bites are more associated with rabies.

    5. Table 1-15, Squamous cell carcinoma (not small cell as the book claims) is associated with hypercalcemia due to secretion of PTHrp.

    P. 344 - Bereavement

    States that if depressive "symptoms persist >2 months, then Dx is MDD rather than normal bereavement".

    I thought normal grief after the loss of a partner is normal up to one year, unless there are significant thoughts of suicide, poor insight to hallucinations, or grave disability to function?

    p. 254 on the graph of FSH vs. LH.

    The LH surge should be greater than the FSH surge around ovulation.
