PACES MRCP UK - Where MRCPians Meet Since 2006

MRCP is well establised as an entry exam for advanced specialist training in many countries including Malaysia. It consists of 3 paper i.e. Part1, Part2(written tests) and PACES. PACES in full means Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills. It is the third part and the candidate is assessed by fellows of RCP. I passed my PACES in 2005. I am glad that many seniors had guided me throughout my preparation for PACES and I wish to share my experiences with PACES candidates via this blog.

"Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome"

I just returned to work yesterday after CNY holidays. The moment I entered my ward, there was one case that struck my attention. Surely, I will put up this case in the coming mock exam!This a Caucasian gentleman that has telangiectases over the face and lips with history of multiple epistaxis. He has a strong family history of similar skin lesions and his father died of gastrointestinal hemorrhage.

What is the mode of inheritance?
What are the other complications?
What are the other conditions in which telangiectases are seen?

Yes, the telangiectasia is similar in morphology. However, there is no other features to suggest systemic sclerosis
