5 A. The patella deviates to the lateral side due to unopposed constraction of the vastus lateralis.

6A 7A 8A

9 D. The lateral cutaneous nerve of thigh, a branch of lumbar plexus gets contribution from L1 and L2
segments of the spinal cord. It innervates the lateral aspect of thigh. It descends along the lateral
border of the psoas major muscle and enters the thigh after passing deep to the fascia iliaca and the
inguinal ligament. Sometimes the nerve is incorporated within the substance of the fascia iliaca and
placed in a fibrous tunnel of the inguinal ligament. Irritation of this nerve in the fibrous tunnel produces
pain along the lateral aspect of thigh. This is known as Meralgia parasthetica. Freeing the nerve from
the fibrous tunnel will relieve the symptoms. While doing laproscopic surgery for inguinal hernia,
accidental damage to the nerve in the triangle of pain (a non-anatomical triangle described by the
laproscopic surgeons) can cause pain and tingling sensation in the area of its innervation.


11A. This is a condition known as "foot drop" and indicates that the muscles in the anterior
compartment of the leg, that dorsiflex the foot at the ankle joint, have lost their nerve supply. The
nerve supplying this compartment is the superficial fibular nerve, which is a branch of the common
fibular nerve.

12.D. The valves in the perforating veins ensure unidirectional blood flow from the superficial veins to
the deep veins. Following damage to the valves, the direction of blood flow is reversed resulting in
engorgement of superficial veins.

13C. The dorsalis pedis artery is the continuation of the anterior tibial artery distal to the extensor
retinaculum. The dorsal midline of the foot is a routine location at which to evaluate the quality of
blood flow by compressing the dorsalis pedis artery against the tarsal bones.

14A 15C 16.E 17.D 18.C 19.D

20.D From the supraspinous fossa of scapula, the tendon of the supraspinatus muscle passes
laterally under the acromion to be attached to the greater tubercle of humerus. Therefore, an injury to
this tendon could cause pain during abduction of the arm. Note that the supraspinatus abducts the
arm mainly in the initial stage of abduction. It is commonly involved in rotator cuff injury. The tendon is
separated from the arch and the deltoid muscle by the subacromial bursa. Therefore, inflammation of
this bursa (subacromial bursitis) also makes abduction of the arm painful.

21.B Injury to the upper trunk of brachial plexus usually results from excessive separation of the neck
and shoulder, which may be seen in violent stretching of an infants neck during delivery. B, C & D
can produce injury to the lower part of brachial plexus due to sudden upward pulling of the upper limb
(B & C) and compression of the lower trunk by a cervical rib.
22.A 23.B

24.E Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by the compression of the median nerve as it passes through
the carpal tunnel in the wrist. This patient's history is classic for this problem. As the median nerve
innervates the thenar muscles in the hand, opposition of the thumb would be impaired or absent. All
other movements listed can be produced by muscles in the forearm (abduction, flexion, and
extension) or by muscles innervated by other nerves (adduction).


26.E The posterior circumflex humeral artery is a branch of the third part of the axillary artery. It
accompanies the axillary nerve through the quadrangular space. The artery contributes to the
collateral blood supply around the shoulder. The artery and nerve are often damaged by fracture of
the surgical neck of the humerus.

27.B The serratus anterior muscle is responsible for holding the scapula against the posterior thoracic
wall. Loss of function of this muscle causes the scapula to "wing," or move away from the posterior
thoracic wall. The serratus anterior muscle is innervated by the long thoracic nerve. This nerve
passes through the axilla on the lateral thoracic wall, superficial to the serratus anterior muscle.
Surgery in the axilla can damage this nerve


29.D The inability to extend the fingers indicates an injury to the radial nerve.

30.A The thoracodorsal nerve innervates the latissimus dorsi muscle. This muscle extends, medially
rotates, and adducts the arm.

In individuals with AIDS, majority of cases of toxoplasma infections are believed to be a reactivation
of old or pre existing infection. Hence routine quantitative tests for IgM antibody are usually negative

may reveal an acute response.

Clinical findings, nonmicrobiologic laboratory tests, and chest radiography are not useful for
differentiating M. pneumoniae pneumonia from other types of community-acquired pneumonia. They
lack cell wall, hence Gram staining not useful.Culture not recommended for routine diagnosis as it
takes several weeks. PCR allows rapid, specific diagnosis earlier in the course of clinical illness. The
diagnosis can also be established by serologic tests for IgM and IgG antibodies to M. pneumoniae in
paired (acute- and convalescent-phase) serum samples; enzyme-linked immunoassay is the
recommended serologic method.

The combination of PCR of respiratory tract secretions and serologic testing constitutes the most
sensitive and rapid approach to the diagnosis of M. pneumoniaeinfection
