Answer is D.

I am not too sure, but the person is a diabetic, and most likely to succumb to an infection.

Ahh i was thinking that too, after posting my answer....I think i would like to change it to E, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, although there is 'Restrictive Cardiomyopathy' in hemochromatosis, so not sure.

You know what ? ... Firstly, I chose " E " then ,,, I changed it to " D " ... I don't know whether its right or not ?
I remembered that " Cardiomyopathy is Restrictive in Hemochromatosis " ( Not hypertrophic type ), Besides the fact that Vibrio Vulnificus infection is very possible in Hemochromatosis patient !!
So, I think "D" is more possible answer ....

Default It's hemochromatosis

You guys are right
This is a case of hemochromatosis and they are vulnerable to vibrio vulnificus and yersinia infections

Guys, let's play this game often, it's entertaining and it will help us prepare. If you see an interesting question post it here so that we can discuss it.

Thanks
