Krok 2. Medicine – 2009

 1 A 27 year old man complains of pains in epigastrium which are relieved by food intake. EGDFS shows antral erosive gastritis,  biopsy of antral mucous presents Hеlicobacter Pylori. Diagnosis is:   

A. Gastritis of type A   

B. Menetrier’s gastritis    

C. Reflux-gastritis   

D. Gastritis of type B*   

E. Rigid antral gastritis 


NB! Type A gastritis primarily affects the body/fundus of the stomach, and is more common with pernicious anemia.It is also sometimes called auto-immune gastritis. In this type of gastritis, the parietal cells which are responsible for the production of acid are attacked, which can in advanced cases lead to complete deterioration of the stomach lining. A particular form of anaemia can also result due to an interruption in the absorption of vitamin B12.

Type B gastritis (most common overall) primarily affects the antrum.This gastritis accounts for 80% of all gastritis cases. It is primarily caused by pathogens like bacteria, viruses or alcohol. In 90% of cases of type B gastritis, there is one primary cause: theHelicobacter pylori bacteria.


Helicobacter pylori.

Helicobacter pylori.


 2 Examination of placenta revealed a defect. An obstetrician performed manual investigation of uterine cavity, uterine massage.  Prophylaxis of endometritis in the postpartum period should involve following actions:    

A. Instrumental revision of uterine cavity   

B. Antibacterial therapy*   

C. Haemostatic therapy   

D. Contracting agents   

E. Intrauterine instillation of dioxine 







 3 A 67 year old female patient complains about edemata of face and legs, pain in the lumbar area that is getting worse at moving;  great weakness, sometimes nasal haemorrhages, rise of body temperature up to 38,4oC. Objectively: painfulness of vertebral  column and ribs on palpation. Laboratorial study revealed daily proteinuria of 4,2 g, ESR- 52 mm/h. What changes of laboratory  indices are to be expected?    

A. Haemoglobin – 165 g/l   

B. g-globulins – 14%   

C. Albumins – 65%   

D. Leukocytes – 15,3 g/l    

E. Whole protein of blood serum – 101 g/l*    

 NB! Serum total protein, also called plasma total protein or total protein, is a Biochemical test for measuring the total amount of protein in blood plasma or serum. Protein in the plasma is made up of albumin and globulin. The globulin in turn is made up of α1, α2, β, and γ globulins. The reference range for total protein is 60-85g/L. (It is also sometimes reported as “6-8.5g/dl”.).

  • Concentrations below the reference range usually reflect low albumin concentration, for instance in liver disease or acute infection.
  • Concentrations above the reference range are found in paraproteinaemia, Hodgkin’s lymphoma or leukaemia.



4 A 43 year old female patient was delivered to the hospital in grave condition. She suffers from Addison’s disease. The patient had  been regularly taking prednisolone but a week before she stopped taking this drug. Objectively: sopor, skin and visible mucous  membranes are pigmented, skin and muscle turgor is lowered. Heart sounds are muffled, rapid. AP- 60/40 mm Hg, heart rate –  96/min. In blood: Na- 120 millimole/l, K- 5,8 micromole/l. Development of this complication is primarily caused by the deficit of the  following hormone:    

A. Adrostendion   

B. Noradrenaline   

C. Adrenaline    

D. Cortisol*    

E. Corticotropin (ACTH)

 NB! Addison’s disease (also chronic adrenal insufficiency, hypocortisolism, and hypoadrenalism) is a rare, chronic endocrine disorder in which the adrenal glands do not produce sufficient steroid hormones (glucocorticoids and often mineralocorticoids). It is characterised by a number of relatively nonspecific symptoms, such as abdominal pain and weakness, but under certain circumstances, these may progress to Addisonian crisis, a severe illness which may include very low blood pressure and coma.In most cases Addison’s disease is an idiopathic autoimmune disease.

 5 A 52 year old patient was admitted to a hospital because of high hemorrhagic diathesis of mucous membranes, massive skin  haemorrhages in form of ecchymoses and spots, nasal and stomachal haemorrhages. After clinical examinations her illness was  diagnosed as thrombocytopenic purpura. What is the most probable cause of this disease?    

A. Iron deficit in blood serum, bone marrow and depot   

B. Deficit of the VIII factor of blood coagulation   

C. Generation of antithrombocytic antibodies*   

D. Disturbed hemostasis   

E. Inherited insufficiency of plasm factors of blood coagulation   

NB!  Bleeding diathesis (or bleeding tendency or predisposition or ha(e)morrhagic diathesis) is an unusual susceptibility to bleeding (hemorrhage) mostly due to hypocoagulability.

Inflammatory lesions occur most commonly in the fallopian tubes and ovaries and uterus are less damaged.

Statistical studies show that one in four women suffers from adnexistis and in 60% of cases the infection becomes chronic.
