greater than expected for injury not relieved by analgesics increase with passive stretch of compartment muscles pallor palpable tense, swollen compartment late paralysis (inability to move limb - late) pulses are usually still present paresthesias NOT pulslessness most important feature found on physical exam is PAIN out of proportion to injury (the other signs are late signs) 4.a lady with sore throat, a week later developed a swelling which moves with deglutition 1 2 3 4 solitary thyroid nodule MNG thyroglossal cyst cervical lymph node

The diagnosis is usually established by observing a 1- to 2-cm, smooth, well-defined midline neck mass that moves upward with protrusion of the tongue. Routine thyroid imaging is not necessary, although thyroid scintigraphy and ultrasound have been performed to document the presence of normal thyroid tissue in the neck. Treatment involves the "Sistrunk operation," which consists of en bloc cystectomy and excision of the central hyoid bone to minimize recurrence.1 Approximately 1% of cysts are found to contain cancer that is usually papillary (85%). Squamous, Hrthle cell, and anaplastic cancers also have been reported, but are rare. Medullary thyroid cancers are, however, not found in thyroglossal duct cysts. I forgot to mention the relation to infection ... Thyroglossal duct cysts present as midline masses of the anterior neck (Figure 254. ). Like branchial cleft cysts, they may be asymptomatic and only appear when they become infected in the setting of an upper respiratory tract infection...Current thats a good was of practicing but ur getting most questions statments wrong ,like there was never written a mass in midline moved with deglutition, and i dont think there is connection bw thyroglossal cyst and throat infection, anyways maybe it was written midline i dnt remember exactly may be ur rite and one of the choice for the other question was pilonidal sinus tract and it was at 3 o clock position or it was the other question i dnt remember exactly

For the MCQ, No need to memorize the doses, but of course know the common drugs used. Also it is good to know antidotes, though not the dosages. One has to memorize the following values (according to the AMC specifications handbook): in SI units FBC (blood count) Common serum electrolytes ABGs glucose CSF Microurine mircroscopy and culture The other reference values will be given for a particular SEX /age. Best source of pictures will be Anthology of Medical Conditions as they get most of their pictures from there. Try to get any ECG book for ECGs, but I would suggest Basic Electrocardiography in Ten Days by David Ferry, cos it has lots of ECG pictures, and they are well explained. Readings for any subject even if just once is alright, provided that you understand it. Remember quality is more important than quantity. IMPORTANT TOPICS: Medicine=> ECG of MI, Heart Blocks, Afib, VT & VF Management of Acute MI & it's complications Endocarditis PE Pneumothorax Pneumonias Sub arachnoid h'ge Meningitis CT scans of SDH & EDH Myasthenia gravis GB Syndrome stroke artery & territory identification Acromegaly diagnostic test, Hypopituitarism, Hypo & Hyperthyroidism management in relation with Carbimazol Renal Colic UTI Reflux nephropathy Biliary colic Hepatitis (viral & Alcohalic)

NASH Cirhosis Rheumatiod, Osteo, Spondylo & Psoriatic arthropathies Anemias including Sickle cell A. Leukemias Myelofibrosis Peptic ulcer Pancreatitis GI BLeed Bleeding diathesis Alcohal & Paracetamol Poisoning Surgery=> Colonic Cancer & D/D Few fractures were there I can't recall now SORRY! Median & Peroneal nerve palsy Few trauma cases where u may be asked about management as per standard management (ABCDE) here u 've to be conscious about steps in management so that u dont jump to higher level of managemnet. OB/GY=> APH, PPH, Polyhydrioamnios, Cholestasis of pregnancy, HELLP, Acute fatty liver in pregnancy, DVT, Pre-eclampsia management, Tetralogic drugs & Varicella infection in pregnancy management. Dermo=> Erythma nodosum, Erythma margnatum, Sq.C.Ca, Basal Ca, Melanoma Pemhigus v/s Pemphigoid & Erythma multiformis--> these were pictures in exam which may fetch u cash marks therefore I would suggest to see these pics on net frequently esp one day prior to exam.
