Gail, a 16 year old adolescent female accompanied by her mother is arriving at the pediatrician’s office with complaints of nausea, once or twice recent vomiting, lack of appetite, weight reduction of about 12 lbs the last eight months,  lack of menstrual cycle for the last 2  months, and moderate to high anxiety regarding her situation. Upon being interviewed alone by the physician, she discloses that for the last 4 months, she has been involved in sexual relations with her 17 year old boyfriend, information that her mother is not aware off. Her mother shared that her 11 yo son has had a version of the flu about 3weeks ago, and had to stay home from school for a few days due to nausea and vomiting. She is wondering if Gail has been also exposed to the flu virus…

Answer 1: option 4.  Rationale: Although Gail has not disclosed to her mother her sexual involvement, there is no indication that they are having family problems, thus option 1 is not correct.  It might be possible that Gail is using substances to cope with her anxiety, but there is no indication in the vignette that this is a problem. We also do not have enough information to consider Anorexia Nervosa(due to weight loss)  or Bulimia (due to vomiting), thus option #2 is wrong. Gail might be experiencing some mild feelings of depression, but her anxiety whether she is pregnant or not, dominates the picture, making option #3 not the correct answer.

 

 Answer -2 : option 1.  Rationale: Interviewing the boyfriend, his parents and the brother  make options 2,3, and 4 weak. The physician will rule out pregnancy in order to alleviate anxiety, and through the medical exam will assess  the causes of amenorrhea.

 

Answer -3: option 3  Rationale: Option 3 summarizes some of the logical suggestions the pediatrician will discuss with Gail to prevent future problems.
