Cardiology AGAIN YOU CANNOT SKIP STUDYING CARDIO q) A 25-year-old female whose name is Meryl Streep comes with complaints of chest pain with exertion. The symptoms began 6 months ago and have been accompanied by dyspnea. On several occasions, she became lightheaded and felt faint while exercising. She has no prior medical history. She does not smoke or drink. On physical examination, her blood pressure is 160/90 mm Hg, pulse is 80/min, and respirations are 15/min. She is afebrile. A head and neck examination is normal. There is no jugulovenous distention. Her lungs are clear. Her carotid upstrokes are delayed and diminished in amplitude. On cardiac examination, there is a harsh S2. There is a harsh, late-peaking, crescendo-decrescendo systolic murmur that is heard best at the right second intercostal space and radiates to the carotids.

Cardiology AGAIN YOU CANNOT SKIP STUDYING CARDIO
q) A 25-year-old female whose name is Meryl Streep comes with complaints of chest pain with exertion. The symptoms began 6 months ago and have been accompanied by dyspnea. On several occasions, she became lightheaded and felt faint while exercising. She has no prior medical history. She does not smoke or drink. On physical examination, her blood pressure is 160/90 mm Hg, pulse is 80/min, and respirations are 15/min. She is afebrile. A head and neck examination is normal. There is no jugulovenous distention. Her lungs are clear. Her carotid upstrokes are delayed and diminished in amplitude. On cardiac examination, there is a harsh S2. There is a harsh, late-peaking, crescendo-decrescendo systolic murmur that is heard best at the right second intercostal space and radiates to the carotids. The remainder of the physical examination is unremarkable. An ECG reveals a normal sinus rhythm and left ventricular hypertrophy by voltage criteria. There is NO history of dyslipidemia in her family. Which of the following is the most likely diagnosis? What is the OVERlying disease?
1-Mitral regurg
2-Aortic stenosis
3-Mitral stenosis
4-Mitral valve prolapse
5-Ischemic attack of Left coronary artery
6-Ischemic attack of the Right sinus artery
7-Ischemic attack of the Left anterior descending artery
8-Mitral insufficiency
