Our PEDS EM Questions

NBME-style, blueprint-based Q&A.
Just like you’ll see on the actual PEM exam.

Positively-stated, Case-based Question Stems

No “negatively phrased” questions, no “A and B”…you know what we mean. Our questions always address important “key point” blueprint-based content in a well structured manner.

A 9 yo male presents to the ED with his mother for evaluation of fatigue and generalized weakness for 2 weeks. He developed a generalized rash after going outside, and complains of epigastric pain and anorexia, even after offering his favorite foods. He has had no fever but has been unable to attend school. On PE, you note a violaceous rash of the eyelids, and the following rash on his hands:

You note proximal muscle weakness as well. Which of the following studies would be most helpful to confirm your diagnosis of this patient?

Clear Answer Options

A question’s difficulty is defined by the choice of distractors. Good distractors determine the difficulty level of a question. Therefore, good distractors are one of the most important features of a high quality question.

Anti-Ro antibody test
Aldolase, AST, ALT
Anti-smooth muscle antibody test
C3 and C4 complement levels
Anti- double stranded DNA antibody test

High-yield Remediation

Understanding why an answer choice is incorrect is just as important as knowing why it is correct. Med-Challenger questions contain detailed explanations for the correct and incorrect answer choices along with integrated media for those that learn best by visual stimuli.

Explanation:

Aldolase, AST, ALT. This patient most likely has juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM), which typically affects young boys between the ages of 5-10 yo presenting with proximal muscular weakness. The muscle weakness can involve the diaphragm and esophageal musculature, causing symptoms of acid reflux. A diffuse photosensitive rash is present in 25% of patients, and in contrast to the malar rash of SLE, the rash of JDM involves the nasolabial folds. An additional classic skin finding in JDM is Gottron papules (as shown in the photo), which are dark red lesions found on the extensor surfaces of the hands, elbows and knees. Laboratory studies that are abnormal in JDM are the muscle-derived varieties: Aldolase, AST, ALT, LDH and CPK. Abnormalities of C3 and C4 are more common with SLE.

Anti-Ro antibodies, anti-smooth muscle antibodies, and anti-double stranded DNA antibodies can be abnormal in various autoimmune conditions, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjögren’s syndrome, and autoimmune hepatitis.
