Pseudohypoparathyroidism: an autosomal recessive disorder, cararcterised be renal end-organ unresponsiveness of the kidney to PTH and by shortened fourth and fifth metacarpals and metatarsals, short stature, and other skeletal abnormalities.
Similar skeletal abnormalities, without parathyroid hormone dysfunction, characterise a rare entity termed pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism.
Dear God. Pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism?
NMS Medicine book is here. It's fucking huge. 696 pages to learn. But I have the question breakdown for the 173-question final, so I'll take that into account (20 questions on Cardiology, 1 on urology means why worry about urology?).
Also just-arrived: Cane Toads: An Unnatural History. Yay, my very own copy. Must inflict on Ayoyo at earliest convenience.
Chapter count: 20. Three completed this morning, despite my distraction.
Four chapters to do this afternoon, including skin, CNS, musculoskeletal, and the it-bit (yay for Jeff-isms!) one on medical statistics. I'm on target. I'm also starving. Time for lunch.
