Click here to find the latest Student Discussion Document for February’s Clinical Case Study from Siba P. Paul, Bryony A. Smith, Timothy M. Taylor, and Joanna Walker.

Dr. Paul provided us with four exclusive questions that will not appear in the published version of the Case. We'd love to hear your answers to these questions in the comments section.

  1. What blood biochemistry would you expect when a neonate presents with weight loss?
  2. What is the most likely diagnosis in light of the above blood biochemistry?
  3. How would you explain a low urinary osmolality in this case?
  4. Was urine culture indicated in light of the abnormal blood analyte?
