PEM Questions

A 16yo boy just returned from a vacation to the U.S. Virgin Islands. On the flight, he developed abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, which he initially attributed to airsickness. He came straight from the airport to the ED, and now he also complains of lingual and circumoral paresthesias, painful paresthesias of his hands and feet, feeling as though his teeth feel “loose”, and generalized weakness. Another classic symptom of this entity is: A. Urticaria and flushing B. Tachycardia C. Profuse watery diarrhea D. Paralysis E. Temperature reversal Also, if you’re interested in the Peds ID Antibiotics Question of the Week, you can find it here
