Default FA case 37

can we put differential Dx based only on Hx with no physical findings as present in FA case 37 of blood in stool ???
ALSO IN WORK UP SHOULD WE WRIGHT PROCTOSIGMOIDSCOPY WHILE WE WROTE COLONSCOPY ??

Yes you can write differential without physical exam in this case cause you cant do any physical exam to confirm your diagnosis(like rectal exam ).about colonoscopy..i dont think in real life u gonna offer colonoscopy and proctosygmoidoscopy cause only colonoscopy is enough..but on cs exam u need to write all possible diagnostic work up to show your knowledges..and for diiferent diagnosis..like if pateint has rectal cr u dont need to do colonoscopy right?so on your work up u need to write both for differ.diagnosis..am i make sens?

for blood in the stools you have to order Ct abd to rule out diverticulosis then order colonoscopy if negative, order Fe studies to confirm AOCD
