Primary intradural extramedullary ependymomas are very rare. They are called primary in this location as they do not have any connection with the central nervous system. They usually develop from an ectopic ependymal cell nest. To the best of our knowledge, only 10 cases have been described in the literature. We report two cases of large sausage-shaped intradural extramedullary ependymoma in the lumbosacral area.

Portal vein branching anomaly occurs due to aberration of normal anastomotic patterns and involution of vitelline veins during development of portal vein. Anatomical knowledge of portal vein and its branching pattern is important for hepatobiliary surgeon and gastrointestinal intervention radiologist. We are reporting a case of absence of portal vein bifurcation showing single main intrahepatic portal vein with gradual decreasing caliber distally, in a young female patient on contrast-enhanced computed tomography study of abdomen. Few cases of absence of portal bifurcation have been reported in literature so far. © 2014. Anatomy&Cell Biology.

The magnitude of the increasing obesity prevalence has become important health problem. The present study was done to correlate obesity with respiratory function in a group of Indian population. A total of 99 cases between age group 15-45 years of both sexes were taken with no history of asthma or any respiratory diseases. Their height, weight, BMI were measured. The persons having BMI 18.5-22.99 were taken as control group for age and sex. The persons with BMI 25kg/m2 to 40kg/m2 were taken as study(obese) group. Then Spirometry (both static & dynamic lung volumes) was performed in all subjects. FVC, FEV1, FEV1/FVC, ERV, MVV were used as measures of ventilatory function. FVC, FEV1, ERV & MVV were decreased in obese group. These results indicate that obesity had negative correlation with pulmonary function.

Primary amyloidosis of the larynx is a rare benign disease of unknown aetiology. Isolated epiglottic involvement with amyloidosis is an extremely uncommon benign laryngeal pathology and can present with a foreign body sensation in the throat. This lesion should be kept in mind in cases with a long-standing foreign body sensation in the throat. Observation and endoscopic carbon dioxide laser excision are the main methods of treatment. Long-term follow-up is also required because of the slow progressive nature of this disease. © 2015 The Authors. Production and hosting by Elsevier Ltd on behalf of Taibah University.

Pregnancy induced hypertension is one of the most common and challenging medical complication of pregnancy as this complex disease continues to defeat all efforts to bring about satisfactory and rewarding policy of management because of its poor understanding of pathological basics. It is the hypertension that results from direct gravid state and is one of the critical obstetric complications attributing to high incidence of fetal and maternal morbidity and mortality. This complication of pregnancy though responsible for large number of maternal and perinatal deaths, can be easily prevented and controlled by early detection of disease and proper management. In this study, we assessed the extent to which liver function tests can be used to predict the adverse maternal outcomes.

Nevus depigmentosus is a congenital hypomelanotic condition for which no effective treatments are available. The hypopigmentation is permanent and enlarges in proportion with growth in the person. Here, I report a patient of nevus depigmentosus on whom we performed suction blister grafting and the resultant pigmentation was satisfactory even at a follow-up after 10 years.

Objective:The objective of this study was to evaluate and compare the efficacy of combined sucrose and non-nutritive sucking (NNS) for analgesia in newborn infants undergoing heel-stick procedures.Study Design:This randomized control trial was conducted in the neonatal intensive care unit of a tertiary care hospital over a period of 1 year. One hundred and eighty full-term neonates with birth weight >2200 g and age >24 h were randomized to one of four interventions administered 2 min before the procedure: 2 ml of 30% sucrose (group I, n=45) or NNS (group II, n=45) or both (group III, n=45) or none (group IV, n=45). Primary outcome was composite score based on Premature Infant Pain Profile (PIPP) score.Result:Baseline variables were comparable among the groups. Median (interquartile range) PIPP score was 3 (2 to 4) in group III as compared with 7 (6.5 to 8) in group I, 9 (7 to 11) in group II and 13 (10.5 to 15) in group IV. Group III had significant decrease in the median PIPP score compared with other groups (P=0.000). Median PIPP score also decreased significantly with any intervention as compared with no intervention (P=0.000).Conclusion:Sucrose and/or NNS are effective in providing analgesia in full-term neonates undergoing heel-stick procedures, with the combined intervention being more effective compared with any single intervention. © 2016 Nature America, Inc.

An association of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease with insulin resistant metabolic syndrome and hypothyroidism has been suggested. Aim of the present study was to explore the above association and also to establish the correlation between hypothyroidism and insulin resistance in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Study group comprised 40 cases of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and 30 healthy controls. Serum samples were analysed for fasting glucose, insulin, lipid profile and thyroid hormones. Insulin resistance was assessed by homeostatic model of assessment calculation. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease patients demonstrated significantly higher insulin resistance, TSH values and significantly lower FT4 values as compared to controls, which illustrates the prevalence of insulin resistance and hypothyroidism in patients. A significant positive correlation between TSH and insulin resistance (r=0.87, p<0.001) and a significant negative correlation between FT4 and insulin resistance (r= -0.14, p<0.001) were established in the cases. Moreover TSH was significantly related to low density lipoprotein cholesterol, independent of insulin resistance. There have been some doubts over the clinical correlation between insulin resistance and hypothyroidism to delineate increased risk of cardiovascular disease. So earlier detection and treatment of risk factors may have a significant impact on progression of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

Issue of childhood overweight and obesity has become a serious public health concern throughout the world. Overweight and obesity are encountered in clinical practice and have major public health implications. These are complex conditions, with serious social and psychological dimensions. Some socio demographic characteristics and unhealthy dietary habits are responsible for childhood overweight and obesity. According to World Health Organization (WHO) obesity is measured as global epidemic in developed and also in developing countries. Some studies shows association between childhood overweight, obesity and the long term increase in mortality and morbidity. Few studies determined several risk factors that can affect childhood overweight and obesity and strongly associated with chronic health problems persisting into adulthood. Regular assessment of weight of child, healthy dietary habits and physical activity can reduce childhood overweight and obesity and increase the health quality.

An association between psoriasis and metabolic syndrome has been established in previous studies. Lichen Planus (LP) is also a chronic inflammatory disease morphologically related to psoriasis and few studies have shown association of metabolic derangements in LP.To study the association of metabolic derangements in LP.A prospective case control study was undertaken for a period of one year. Age and sex matched patients of LP and other non-inflammatory diseases were taken as cases and controls respectively. Data on height, weight, lipid profile and fasting blood glucose levels were collected for all the patients. Body Mass Index (BMI) was calculated.A total of 80 patients were recruited, 40 cases and 40 controls. The mean values for all the lipid and glucose parameters were high in cases as compared to controls with significant p-values.In the present study metabolic derangements were seen in patients with LP.
