Dx? Rectal prolapse patient
Hi, I am a pre-medical student writing about an experience in the Emergency Room. The patient was formally given the dx of "rectal prolapse", however, upon research I realize this does not cover the scope of what I saw. The patient also had hep c, alcohol induced cirrhosis, and massive rectal bleeding. If you have any advice on how I could better phrase this for my essay I would sincerely appreciate it!! Thank you (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Light's Criteria Calculator
by shilpamary (Posted Thu Jun 16, 2016 10:44 am)Recently, I have checked in https://www.easycalculation.com/medical ... ulator.php calculator about the calculation of light's criteria based on protein and LDH parameters. Also I have studied about light's criteria in biology in which pleural effusion is a type of fluid, built in the space of lungs and chest cavity. The main causes for Pleural effusion are Congestive heart failure, kidney failure, infection, malignancy, pulmonary embolism, hypoalbuminemia, cirrhosis, trauma and so on.Do we have treatment for this type of exudates and will it get cure completely?

Hyponatremia in Cirrhosis
I was thinking that since there is kidney hypo perfusion due to splanchnic vasodilation (hepatorenal syndrome), reduced filtration coupled with activation of the RAAS would lead to increased sodium concentration.. So how is there hyponatremia ? (Source: Student Doctor Network)

What else could go wrong
Hello my fellow cfers. Im just going to jump right in, I'm 25 and I just finished my evaluation for transplant and found out I will be getting listed for both lung and liver. However, when I got a ct scan of my abdomen they saw some of the nodules on my liver do something called "washing out" which they said could be a sign of cancer. So about a week ago I had an MRI of my liver done and it is a small cancer.
