Renal arteries are a pair of lateral branches which arise from abdominal aorta, just below the origin of the superior mesenteric artery (sma), at L2 level. The right one is longer, on account of position of aorta and left is a little higher in its origin. Variations in renal arteries are highly common and such variations may differ in number, mode of origin, branching, course and termination. Extra renal arteries (ERA) are broadly divided into two types- The aberrant (polar) ones are those which supply the kidney (poles) without passing through hilum, whereas the accessory (hilar) ones are those which supply the kidney after passing through hilum. The renal veins are of large size, which are located anterior to arteries and they open into inferior vena cava at right angles. The left is thrice in length than right one and it passes in front of abdominal aorta to join inferior vena cava (IVC). In view of constantly increasing renal transplantations and kidney retrieval surgeries, the variations in renal vasculature are valuable. Anomalies of renal veins are rarely encountered. Abnormal renal vessels are of interest to the medical and surgical personnel, because of the wide spectrum of diseases which are associated with kidney, like hydronephrosis, left renal vein hypertension, retro peritoneal tumours and surgeries, particularly renal transplantations.

The "main classic branches" of the coeliac trunk are hepatic, splenic and left gastric arteries. The present variation was observed during the abdomen dissection classes for the medical under graduates, in the Department of Anatomy at Dr. Pinnamaneni Siddhartha Institute of Medical Sciences & Research Foundation, Gannavaram Mandal, Krishna District (AP), (INDIA), and a 52 year old male cadaver showed the coeliac trunk and superior mesenteric artery arose as common trunk from the ventral surface of the abdominal aorta at the level of the L1 vertebra. The coeliacomesenteric trunk is the rare variation. The incidence of coeliacomesenteric trunk variation was reported to be 2.7% by Parnanen and 1% by both Munger and Eaton. Complications in abdominal surgeries could be avoided with the accurate knowledge of the anatomical variations of coeliac trunk and superior mesenteric artery. Source

Objectives 1. To find out the prevalence of multidisciplinary disabilities. 2. To assess the relationship between the disabilities & socio economic and cultural factors. Methodology The study area comprises of 8 villages under rural field practice area of Rural Medical College, Loni. 7300 children of the age group of 0-14 yrs from the total population of 20,533 were studied by Community based Cross Sectional study. House to house survey was conducted to identify disabled children using a pre tested questionnaire by interview technique. Results The overall prevalence rate of disabilities in children was 2.25%. The prevalence rate for Hearing & Speech impairment was more(1.34%) followed by locomotor disability(0.32%), Visual impairment(0.23%), Mental retardation(0.19%) and Multiple & Miscellaneous disability(0.17%). The disability was more in boys, in higher age groups, among Muslims, children of laborers, family size of four and above and in the lower socio economic class. Source

Melanotic neuroectodermal tumor of infancy (MNTI) is a relatively uncommon osteolytic-pigmented neoplasm that primarily affects the jaws of newborn infants. Here, we are reporting a case of MNTI presented at the age of 12 years. The objective of this report is to review the incidence, presentation, investigation protocols, management options and outcomes. Source
