Case 3: A 44-Year-Old with Unusual Changes in Physical Appearance

You answered:

C Adrenal insufficiency caused by an interaction between fluticasone and dapsone.

This answer is incorrect. Dapsone is not known to have a significant interaction with fluticasone. In addition, the patient’s symptoms are not consistent with adrenal insufficiency.

Choose another answer:

A Worsening lipodystrophy caused by stavudine, fosamprenavir, and ritonavir.
B Cushing’s syndrome caused by an interaction between fluticasone and ritonavir.
D Weight gain caused by an interaction between risperidone and ritonavir.
