c) There is presence of smoke puff sign on angiography


Q55)  Which of the following is true about reno vascular hypertension

a) Seen in young age group

b) Both kidneys are of same size

c) It is familial



51. b , Technetium labelled colloid sulfur

Sentinel lymph node is the first lymph node draining the tumor area of the region. If the 1st lymph node in axilla is negative on HPE report, it spares excessive lymph node dissection in the entire axilla.

Dye is injected in the subdermal plexus of breast. Dye is radioisotope labelled albumin and patent blue dye. The lymph node takes up the dye and can be seen by a haand held gamma camera.

Uses, dosages and timings of Technetium labelled colloid sulfur

Gastric emptying scan

Liver /Spleen scan

GI bleed

52. b 

5-7 lymph nodes

53. b

N2a ipsilateral between 3-6 cm

Cervical lymph nodes are divided into (i) Submandibular (II) Upper jugular, (iii) Middle  jugular (iv) Lower jugular and (v) Posterior triangle

Cancer of oral cavity and lips mainly go to lymph nodes I, II, and III

Tongue skip metastasis to level III and IV is common 

Oropharynx - II, III, IV and contralateral

TNM Staging

NX Regional lymph nodes cannot be assessed
N0 No regional lymph node metastasis
N1 : Metastasis in a single ipsilateral lymph node <3 cm in greatest dimension
N2a:  Metastasis in a single ipsilateral lymph node >3 cm but not more than 6 cm
N2b:  Metastasis in multiple ipsilateral lymph nodes, none >6 cm in greatest dimension
N2c : Metastasis in bilateral or contralateral lymph nodes, none >6 cm in greatest dimension
N3 Metastasis in any lymph node >6 cm

54) c

Moya Moya disease is a progressive obstructive disease of the vascular system of the brain affecting the internal carotid arteries.

It is Autoimmune and seen  in young age 

"Puff of smoke" is produced due to development of collateral circulation of external carotid system

Moya Moya disease angiographic picture
Angiography MOYA MOYA Disease

Treatment options include bypassing the blocked artery

55. a

Renal artery occlusion creates ischemia of the kidney which releases renin. Hypereninemia leads to secondary hypertension. This further leads to conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II and vasocontriction and eventually release of aldosterone.

It is a disease of young adults and children

Size of the kidneys vary and diuretics do not control hypertension because the mechanism is high renin secretion which is unresponsive to diuretics.
