A lot of questions i see while doing q bank's concern HOMELESS person being brought in to hospital. So let's discuss all the catch phrases or words which should come to our mind when we see the word homeless.

like for me I think of that he may be having one or more of following-

1-alcoholic
2-thiamine deficiency-wernicke's and korsakoff's
3-risk of inducing central pontine myelinosis while rapidly correcting hyponatremia
4-possibly HIV positive
5-drug addict
6-schizophrenic

pls continue the list guyz!! :)

I think it is 1) cellular proliferation in an inguinal lymph node.

Because pt has an infected wound.... which is causing reactive hyperplasia of the draining the area.
