Objective: The aim of this study was to know the effect of cigarette smoking and tobacco chewing on cardiac status and lipid profile in young asymptomatic adults and to compare the findings with socioeconomically and age matched controls. Also we compared the cardiac status and lipid profile between smokers and tobacco chewers. Method: Cardiac status parameters like Systolic BP (Blood Pressure), Diastolic BP, Mean BP and Lipid profile parameters like HDL, LDL, VLDL, Triglycerides and Total cholesterol were studied on 30 young asymptomatic smokers, 30 young tobacco chewers and 30 nonsmokers and non tobacco chewers. Results: The means of our studied parameters SBP, DBP, MAP, HDL, LDL, VLDL, Triglycerides and Total Cholesterol in smokers are 135.4 mmHg, 85.3 mm Hg, 102 mmHg, 29.4mg/dl, 161.8 mg/dl, 33.6 mg/dl, 167.8 mg/dl and 224.8 mg/dl respectively. For the tobacco chewers the means for above parameters respectively are 135.7 mmHg, 83.1 mm Hg, 100.6 mmHg, 31.7mg/dl, 158.9 mg/dl, 33.5 mg/dl, 167.6 mg/dl and 224.1 mg/dl and for the non smoker non tobacco chewers the means are 127.1 mmHg, 81.1 mm Hg, 97 mmHg, 41.2mg/dl, 112.6 mg/dl, 21.6 mg/dl, 107.9 mg/dl and 175.4 mg/dl respectively. Conclusion: The young asymptomatic smokers and tobacco chewers had consistently higher blood pressure values and higher lipid profile values except for HDL levels which were lower as compared to the non smokers and non tobacco chewers. The smokers showed relatively more adverse effect on cardiac status and lipid profile when compared to tobacco chewers.

Tuberculosis of skeletal muscle is extremely rare (0.017%) 7. We report a case with an extremely unusual and atypical presentation of the disease wherein diagnosis of isolated tuberculosis of sternocleidomastoid muscle was done incidentally on histopathological examination and confirmed on Ziehl-Neelson (ZN) staining in a case with high index of clinical suspicion of soft tissue neoplasm.
