49) pantothenic acid defeciency can cause confabulation

False

Pantothenic acid deficiency in humans is rare. Symptoms of pantothenic acid deficiency, which has occurred under conditions of severe malnutrition, include numbness in the toes and painful burning in the feet (melalgia). Experimentally-induced pantothenic acid deficiency in humans, produced headache, fatigue, insomnia, intestinal disturbances, paresthesias of the hands and feet, impaired antibody production, an elevated sedimentation rate and an impaired eosinopenic response to ACTH. Most of these symptoms and signs resolved with administration of pantothenic acid.

Just wondering...when I sat Part 1's in Aut '04, I recognised about 80% mcq questions - mainly thanks to superego and Manchester course notes.

Is it the same for Part 2's. Anyone know? Much appreciated.

In the meantime, here are some more MCQs

1. The MRCPsych exam is a good test of a candidates knowledge.

2. Those that pass first time are lucky.

3. The exam fee represents good value for money.

Please post your answers with references!
