    Here's this week's sample CME board review question on hypertension:

    A 47-year-old woman with long-standing lupus nephritis presents to her physician for her biannual checkup. She is currently taking no medication and she feels generally well.

    On physical examination, her blood pressure is 160/98 mm Hg. Pressures were equal in both arms. Previous blood pressures have been in the range of 130/70 mm Hg.

    Her physician asked her to return a week later for a recheck of the pressure. At that time, repeat blood pressure was 158/100 mmHg. The remainder of the physical examination was normal.

    Laboratory studies:
    Serum creatinine: 4.3 mg/dL
    Blood urea nitrogen: 38 mg/dL
    Serum potassium: 5.1 mEq/L
    Urinary protein: 1 g/24 hrs.

    These laboratory results were only slightly higher than those taken 6 months earlier. This patient is presumed to have hypertension as the result of her lupus nephritis.


    What is the first-line anti-hypertensive agent for this patient?

    Answer Options:

    Thiazide diuretic

    Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor

    Sympathetic blocker such as aldomet
