NEUROLOGY YR2012 1
LE BATCH 20151.
The course, Neurology 1, aims to accomplish all of the following EXCEPT:A. Bridge the gap between neuroanatomy and neurologic diseasesB. Teach neuro examC. Teach the basic principles of localization
D. Teach the major categories of neurologic disease
The basic steps in arriving at a neurologic diagnosis includes all of the following, EXCEPT:A. Data gatheringB. Anatomic localizationC. Etiologic diagnosis
D. None of the above
Answer: D (None of the above)
Remember that you are arriving at a neurologic diagnosis, this is not anatomic localization. So it should end at the etiologic diagnosis.
Data gathering involves all of the following, EXCEPT:
A. Anatomic localization
B. History takingC. General physical examD. Neurologic exam4.
The strategy adopted by the Department of Clinical Neurosciences in teaching the course, Neurology 1 is:A. Teach localization on a regional basisB. Teach localization from data gathered from the neuro examC. Correlate signs and symptoms with the pathology of diseaseD. None of the above5.
Anatomic localization involves:A. Listing all abnormal neurologic signsB.
C. Finding the intersectionD.
All of the above
All of the following are benefits of localization, EXCEPT:
A. Establishes the etiologic diagnosis
B. Direct diagnostic work-upC. Estimates the size of the lesionD. Limits the differential diagnosis
Finding the intersection establishes the:
A. Anatomic Diagnosis
C. BothD. Neither8.
Infratentorial means:A. The lesion is in the brainstem
B.C. The lesion is lower motor neuron in typeD. Lesion is below the neck
