Is it really the odor of a mouse? Am I supposed to know what a mouse smells like?
doesn't matter, it's PKU!
apparently mousy = musty, because I had one with a mousy odor and didn't know that mousy = musty, so I ruled out PKU. WRONG.
Also, maple syrup and burnt sugar smell the same too apparently.
And I got burnt caramel on a MSUD question... re-burnt sugar?
I guess mold smell in carpets, clothings etc
Luckily for us, I think the NBME is years from incorporating the smell section into Step 1. I think they're appeased enough right now with new opportunities to mess with us through the A/V section. Which is much better than the first administration of Step 1, which had the taste test for diabetes. It's a trade-off, though, since the pharm section consisted solely of penicillin back then...
Who in the hell knows what burnt caramel smells like? Maybe the carnival worker in charge of the caramel apples.
yes... you should know. (I worked in a lab and often went to the "mouse room") There were over 1000 mice. yikes!
Just walk into a pet store, especially on a hot day. It's the absolute definition of a musty/mousy odor.
Just be happy that we don't have to taste urine like in the pre-dipstick ages.
Hopefully all of this stuff we're memorizing is actually helpful in real practice.
Same question 7 years later...thanks for the answer!
