In majority of the Mortuaries there are no proper rooms for basic necessities and staff. Some of the mortuaries have attained the status of historical monument, which have no caretaker and present a deserted look. At many places, the mortuaries are in the dirtiest corner and neglected part of the hospital. Facilities for autopsy like dissection table, instruments, and water supply, lighting and sterilization facilities are lacking at many places and if present, are in worst and rusted condition, in spite of the guidelines of Medical Council of India and judiciary. In this paper, some problems are highlighted and their planed solutions for modernized mortuaries are discussed. © 2014, Indian Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology. All rights reserved.

Spina bifida is a developmental anomaly characterized by defective closure of the bony encasement of the spinal cord through which the spinal cord and meninges may or may not protrude. We report a rare case of a very long faun tail, which was in the form of a 20 inch long tail originating from the lumbosacral area in a rhomboidal pattern, measuring 10 x 8 inches. The case is being reported for its rare presentation of a 20 inch long faun tail with underlying spina bifida occulta. Source

The main cause of acute puerperal inversion is mismanagement of third stage of labour. Only immediate diagnosis and treatment can decrease mortality. Since majority of Indians live in resource poor settings where traditional birth attendants (TBAs) provide basic obstetrics care. Mismanagement of third stage of labour in such settings may not be unusual with the attendant complications. This study reports three cases of acute uterine inversion managed at a tertiary care centre. Their labour was managed by TBAs and a nurse; one died while the others were successfully managed. Hence, prevalence of uterine inversion may not be rare in resource poor areas of India. Therefore, there is an urgent need for re-training of TBA's and primary health care nurses, in the act of labour management so as to prevent uterine inversion and other life threatening complications. © 2014, Indian Journal of Public Health Research and Development.

A vast majority of people believes that doctors are a negligent lot. This often implies that doctors are not courteous enough, are brusque to the point of being rude, are not available when needed, and prescribe unnecessary laboratory tests, scans and medicines. At a function organised by the Indian Medical Association on medical negligence, a veteran politician, otherwise very articulate, was at a loss to define it. Finally, he said, "Don't you people leave your scissors or gauze pieces in the stomachs of patients?" The usual complaints of being rude and unsympathetic pertain more to a lack of professional courtesy, which is our national trait. Doctors are no exception, though this national trait only explains their conduct and does not excuse or justify it. Source

The anatomical variations of the brachial plexus in humans have clinical significance for surgeons, radiologists, and anatomists. In a study of 60 brachial plexuses, four trunked brachial plexuses were encountered in three limbs (two female and one male), all of them being post fixed and on left side of cadavers. The third trunk in all these limbs gave rise to two anterior divisions (upper and lower) and one posterior division. In two limbs belonging to the female sex, the upper anterior division joined with the anterior division of the second trunk to form the lateral cord while its lower anterior division joined with the anterior division of the fourth trunk to form the medial cord. In the sole male limb, along with the third trunk, the fourth trunk also divided into upper and lower anterior divisions. Upper anterior divisions of the third and fourth trunks joined to form the medial root of the median nerve while lower anterior divisions joined to form the ulnar nerve. No medial cord was formed as such. Further, it is inferred that in postfixed brachial plexus, there is a tendency to failure on part of T1 and T2 to join C8 which continues as the third trunk while T1 and T2 continue as the fourth trunk. Since it was seen in all postfixed brachial plexuses of the present study, it is emphasized to be given a place in the textbooks of anatomy or to conduct a study on a larger database.
