Hi;

The Answer #1102 is correct too. Excellent, bobbym!

#1103. Name the medical term / phrase - (also known as trisomy 18 [T18]) It is a chromosomal abnormality caused by the presence of all, or part of, an extra 18th chromosome. This genetic condition almost always results from nondisjunction during meiosis. It is named after a physician, who first described the syndrome in 1960. It is the second-most common autosomal trisomy, after Down syndrome, that carries to term.

Hi;

#1107. Name the medical term / phrase - (also known as tardive cyanosis) It is defined as the process in which a long-standing left-to-right cardiac shunt caused by a congenital heart defect (typically by a ventricular septal defect, atrial septal defect, or less commonly, patent ductus arteriosus) causes pulmonary hypertension and eventual reversal of the shunt into a cyanotic right-to-left shunt. Because of the advent of fetal screening with echocardiography early in life, the incidence of heart defects progressing to it has decreased.

Hi Chris2, bobbym, and Agnishom,

The Answer 'glaucoma' is correct. Splendid, Chris2 and bobbym! I haven't come across any problem/puzzle/teaser/paradox in Medicine, as far as I know. Only Questions/Answers, Agnishom.

I came across one puzzle in medicine. I have regular levels of T3 and T4 hormones, but a low level of Thyroid Simulating Hormone. Why should that be?
