The Rosh Reveal: EPISODE 34

What Is the Diagnosis & Treatment for This Patient’s Cough?

February 23, 2020
Welcome to the next episode of The Reveal where we take you inside the mind of a test-taker to deconstruct and connect the dots of a board-style question so you can become a better student, transform how you learn, and excel not only on high-stakes exams, but also in your general medical knowledge. Let’s get started.

A 6-year-old boy with a past medical history of glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency presents to the Emergency Department for a cough associated with vomiting. His parents state that he has been coughing every day for the last week. He is unimmunized but otherwise healthy. He appears well on exam with a dry cough and occasional wheezes. His laboratory workup reveals a leukocytosis with lymphocytic predominance and a chest X-ray with peribronchial thickening. Based on the suspected diagnosis, which of the following is the most appropriate therapy at this time?

A) Ampicillin-sulbactam

B) Azithromycin

C) Ertapenem

D) Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole
