Second week


Dear colleagues,

Thank you for sending the completed tests. Compare sent answers and tasks with correct solution.

The questions related to infectious mononucleosis and lacunar tonsillitis (topic 5) were not difficult. Leading signs of the infectious mononucleosis are:

  1. exsudative tonsillitis
  2. (cervical) adenopathy
  3. hepatosplenomegaly
Main laboratory findings include

There are many less specific or less often syndromes and signs.

I did not request a written answer related to the second case study. Due to the severity of the described illness, it is necessary to choose a parenteral antibiotic. The use of aqueous penicillin and parenteral clindamycin is equivalent/ similar. Penicillin is more efficacious due to its pharmacokinetics profile and bactericidal mechanism of action. It rapidly suppresses infection and blocks spread of microbes. In opposite, lincosamides act bacteriostatically. Mechanism of action is slower, however it has better penetration into the inflammatory focus. Lincosamides (clindamycin, lincomycin) are better useful for subacute processes.

You have solved the image quiz on processes in the oral cavity, except for details, successfully. The correct answers are here:

From the physical finding it is practically impossible to determine the diagnosis of syphilitic angina, which was be serologically confirmed. Pseudomembranous angina with coatings on the soft palate tend to the diagnosis of ..........., ........... was not probable and ........... was confirmed by sore throat culture. If you solved the task as a crossword puzzle with exclusion method, you could be 100% successful.

The correct diagnosis of a case report No 8.1 is ........... . Serological markers of hepatitis showed a condition ........... . ........... must be confirmed by a serological test. The problem with this infection is the late onset of antibody production.

Here you will find the tasks for the 2nd week of the distance course. During the next week, you will learn other topics. At the beginning of the week, you will complete the preparation of topic of viral hepatitis. Then you will discuss lower respiratory tract infection, urinary tract infections, soft tissue infections, and infective endocarditis (topic 6, 9, 12 and 17) so that you can complete case reports and answer the questions correctly by Friday, March 5, 2021.

On Monday you will log in to MS Teams to discuss about respiratory tract infections. We will add case reports to the website. On Tuesday, March 2, 2021, you have the opportunity to attend ward round in person. Please respect a maximum number of 10 students to attend the ward rounds. On Wednesday, March 3, 2021, you will log in to MS Teams to get acquainted with parasitology. By the end of the week, prepare more topics so that you can send answers to topics by Friday, March 5, 2021:

We hope you will find the course interesting.

Thank you for your exemplary cooperation. Further case studies and next instructions will follow.
