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.

Bilateral LMN 7th CN alsy

I still remember one of the readers asked me about the causes of bilateral LMN 7th CN palsy when I posted a topic on 7th CN palsy in April.
I would say it is not uncommon in practice and I had seen one case before i.e. relapsed lymphoma patient with bilateral LMN 7th CN palsy.


The other possible causes would include:
• Guillain-Barre syndrome
• Sarcoidosis
• Bilateral parotid disease
• Lyme disease
• Mononeuritis multiplex (eg diabetes, PAN)
