Terminal ileum
- Chron's dz (MC location)

Zenker's diverticulum
- Outpouching in the esophagus, food gets stuck causing halitosis
- Dx w/ barium esophagram

Pylorus hypertrophy
- Pyloric stenosis, initial dx test with US

Meckel's diverticulum
- A persistent portion of the embryonic vitelline duct, leading to formation of a true diverticulum of the small intestine
- MC congenital GI malformation

- Presents with N/V, abdominal pain

Celiac disease
- AI disorder that causes malabsorption d/t villous atrophy, triggered by gluten-containing wheat products. CM: steatorrhea, low muscle mass, low subq fat, low iron (pallor, fatigue), low calcium & vitamin D (bone pain, fracture), low vitamin K (easy bruising), low vitamin A (hyperkeratosis)

- esophageal motility disorder, absence of esophageal peristalsis in the distal esophagus & incomplete relaxation of a hypertonic LES. All d/t immune-mediated destruction of inhibitory ganglion cells in the esophageal wall. Neurons in the myenteric plexus responsible for esophageal smooth muscle relaxation are destroyed, whereas excitatory cholinergic neurons responsible for smooth muscle relaxation are relatively spared. Chronic dysphagia to both liquids and solids. Botulinum toxin into the LES causes cholinergic blockade, leading to sphincter relaxation.

Hirschsprung disease
- aganglionic colon, results from failed neural crest cell migration during intestinal development, the affected colonic segment cannot relax. CM- fail to pass meconium (newborns first poop, sticky green), poor feeding, abdominal distention
Parathyroid hormone
- increase Ca reabsorption in the distal tubule

Metabolic alkalosis
- Involves total body chloride depletion are characterized by hypovolemia and demonstrate low urine chloride (<20mEq) b/c adequate Chloride delivery to the distal renal tubules is needed for HCO3 excretion
-- NG suctional, severe vomiting, loop or thiazide diuretic overuse
--- Saline responsive

- In the absence of chloride depletion include conditions of mineralocorticoid excess, such as primary hyperaldosteronism
-- Patients are typically hypervolemic and the metabolic alkalosis is primarily driven by aldosterone-mediated H+ loss from the kidney
--- High urine chloride (>20mEq) is present.
---- Not saline responsive

Renal tubular acidosis
- Causes of non-AG metabolic acidosis. Low pH with low HCO3

Continuous OCP
- provide constant E&P levels, which exert negative feedback on the hypothalamus and the anterior pituitary gland to decrease gonadotropins (FSH, LH) and prevent the mid-cycle LH surge, thereby suppressing ovulation.

Discontinuing OCP
- rising estrogen levels during the follicular phase results in increase in quantity of cervical mucus, which facilitates the transfer and maturation of sperm for fertilization

- common during the first few years of menarche, leading to irregular & heavy menstrual periods. The endometrium builds up under the influence of estrogen but lacks of influence of progesterone to slough off the endometrium.
-- Tx is w/ combo OCP and high-dose estrogen

Imperforate hymen
- on pelvic exam typically reveals a blue, bulging vaginal mass or membrane that swells with Valsalva. Common anatomic cause of primary amenorrhea, patients present with cyclic lower abdominal pain in the absence of apparent vaginal bleeding
