My short case was of pleural effusion.Dr Khuwaja asked every single detail given in book.
My short case was of nephrotic syndrome.The pt. had C/O generalized edema.
Sir asked everything from D/D ,investigations and treatment.he asked the doses of steroids specifically
My short case was of facial palsy. I took a round of the ward on the morning of the ward test so I knew the pt. has signs of facial palsy.Sir simple asked me to start the GPE. Positive findings were loss of naso-labial fold,inability to close eyes completely, and to wrinkle the forehead  and cervical swelling ( likely to be cervical Lymph nodes,matted so the diagnosis was T.B).He asked for causes of facial palsy.I said he probably has tuberculous meningitis that caused facial palsy.

 Myth number 1:Do not appear for USMLE Step 1 within your graduation

 Verdict: Baseless, illogical reasoning

Explanation: This is so prevalent in Pakistan it’s almost pathetic. One of the biggest concerns surrounding our students is that Step 1 is a huge risk to be taken before graduation. Let me put it in another way: Step1 would always remain a risk whenever it is taken, …
