is goljan enough guys?????i m doing 300 pages goljan,is this enough?????should i have to give kaplan a reading????


Yes answer is D.

I couldn't find the explanation in other book, so QBank said:

hemosiderosis is due to increased total body iron content and is associated with the intracellular storage of excess iron as ferritin and hemosiderin. Iron may be found not only in the organs in which it is usually found but also in the pancreas, heart, kidney, endocrine organs and skin. This iron excess may be due to high levels of dietary iron or blood transfusion.Hemosiderin, a denatured form of ferrintin, appears microscopically as yellow- granules in cytoplasm.


sorry D=4


dont worry Kar' Goljan is more than enough ; but no book will teach you every possible Q you are taught concepts to figure them out. more you get the hang of the stuff more you begin to ans "unseen" Qs
