JAAPA CME Post-Test March 2021
Early Pregnancy Loss
Previously called spontaneous abortion, early pregnancy loss (EPL) is the preferred term encompassing threatened abortion, incomplete abortion, complete abortion, and anembryonic pregnancy. EPL has many causes, including chromosomal abnormalities, immunologic and infectious causes, and underlying maternal risk factors. Because many patients present with first-trimester bleeding, clinicians must know the appropriate evaluation and management techniques.
Tuberous Sclerosis Complex: A Multisystem Disorder
Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a genetic disorder that affects multiple organ systems but often goes unrecognized, and a delay in diagnosis can lead to multiple complications. Healthcare professionals should be educated on the many signs and symptoms associated with the disorder, know how to treat them symptomatically, and recommend routine screening to assess for complications. Correctly identifying, diagnosing, and treating TSC can give patients a better quality of life and prevent further complications associated with the disorder.
