The diagnosis for this case is "dermatomyositis" as evidenced by "Gottron's papules"....
So, I will choose stem "E" as she will benefit from steroids

I guess this is dermatomyositis. The signs and symptoms are almost similar.

MCQ based tests provide the students with the details on the neurology,cardiology and other subjects. The questions are based on the diseases affected for the patients. The disease can be detected based on the symptoms caused to the patients and also through the MRI scan of the internal parts.
