1. True (A) or false (B):
In diplegia (bilateral spastic cerebral palsy) the lower limbs are more affected than the upper limbs and fine motor function is usually impaired.
2. True (A) or false (B):
Periventricular leucomalacia (PVL) is only found in preterm infants.
3. True (A) or false (B):
In the Elsies River emergency centre (EC), 70% of trauma cases were caused by violence and 47% of these patients were suspected of being under the influence of alcohol.
4. True (A) or false (B):
Most trauma patients reporting to the Elsies River EC were males aged between 19 and 35 years.
5. True (A) or false (B):
The lifetime prevalence of major depression in South Africa is 9.7%.
6. True (A) or false (B):
Factors predisposing to suicide attempts include female gender, physical illness, occupation and marital status.
7. True (A) or false (B):
In the study of tricyclic antidepressant overdose carried out at Tygerberg Academic Hospital, the mortality rate was particularly high.
8. True (A) or false (B):
Low doses of systemic isotretinoin rarely cure even minor degrees of acne vulgaris.
9. True (A) or false (B):
Potential adverse effects of systemic isotretinoin include depression and suicidal ideation.
10. True (A) or false (B):
Globally, the only drugs recommended for maintenance treatment of acne, after initial clearance, are topical retinoids and hormonal treatment in females, which may be combined.
11. True (A) or false (B):
Topical retinoids seem to have no teratogenic effect when used in pregnancy, but have not been cleared for use in pregnant women.
12. True (A) or false (B):
Carotid artery intima-media thickness (CIMT) serves as a marker of preclinical atherosclerosis.
13. True (A) or false (B):
Most women with fragility fractures have osteopenia and not osteoporosis.
14. True (A) or false (B):
Prediction of fracture risk is claimed not to be improved by using multiple sites for the measurement of bone mineral density.
15. True (A) or false (B):
Bone mineral density accounts for only 50% of bone strength, which means that many factors related to BMD and independent of BMD affect both bone strength and fracture risk.
16. True (A) or false (B):
Only 30-40% of post-exercise respiratory tract symptoms are caused by infections.
17. True (A) or false (B):
Athletes experience lower rates of allergic disease than the general population.

Medical co-morbidity was the cause of death in over half of deaths in patients with bleeding peptic ulcers who underwent successful primary endotherapy.
19. True (A) or false (B):
Rebleeding after primary endotherapy was a risk factor for death by day 3 after a bleeding peptic ulcer.
20. True (A) or false (B):
The need for surgical intervention in bleeding peptic ulcer was a direct predictor of mortality.
