Malignant proliferating trichilemmal cyst is a very rare adnexal tumor, usually arising on the head and neck region of elderly women. We describe a case of a 45-year-old lady presenting with right cervical region swelling since 6 months. Fine needle aspiration cytology and subsequent excisional biopsy was performed. Histopathology revealed lobules of atypical squamoid cells with high mitotic activity, trichilemmal keratinisation and focal invasion. A diagnosis of malignant proliferating trichilemmal cyst was made. It closely mimics squamous cell carcinoma and therefore, pose diagnostic dilemma for the pathologists. © 2016, Indian Journal of Public Health Research and Development. All rights reserved.

Multiple lymphomatous polyposis is considered to be a rare condition, with most of the cases being extranodal counterpart of mantle cell lymphomas. We report a rare case of multiple lymphomatous polyposis of the gastrointestinal tract in which the patient presented with abdominal pain and bloody diarrhea. Computer tomography of the abdomen showed circumferential wall thickening with intramural mass involving caecum & ascending colon with enlarged pericolonic lymph nodes. The patient underwent right hemicolectomy. Immunohistologic findings were characteristic of MALT lymphoma. Microscopic examination of polypoidal masses and mesenteric lymph nodes revealed infiltration by pleomorphic, atypical lymphoid cells which were CD20 positive and negative for CD3, CD10, Cyclin D1. Lymphoepithelial lesions were also noted. Careful endoscopic evaluation and histopathological review along with an immunohistochemical panel is extremely useful for accurately diagnosing such cases and avoiding unnecessary surgery and inappropriate therapy. © 2016, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research.

Background: Amoebic liver abscess presents with severe pain and high grade fever and if not diagnosed and treated promptly, may lead to complications and mortality.Aim and objectives: The objective of the present study was to estimate the incidence, need for aspiration and prognosis. The diagnosis was based on clinical features, positive Elisa test, ultrasonography, aspiration of anchovy sauce from the liver lesion, isolation of E. Histolytica (cyst/trophozoite) from the stool of the patient.Result: We had 65 cases in the study. There were 52 males & 13 females with a ratio of 4:1. Solitary abscess was found in 48 (73.8%) patients which are located as follows; right lobe(43), left lobe(2) and in both lobe(3). 9% were aspirated at presentation due to their size or position. Only 4 (2%) were aspirated at first follow-up on third day due to non resolution of pain or fever or increase in size. All the patients are responded to standard treatment of metronidazole. Amoebic liver abscess is a common diagnosis in our setup.Conclusion: Clinical background and sonogram give a reasonable suggestion about amoebic etiology. If initial aspiration is not indicated due to size larger than 10 cm or proximity to surface, conservative treatment with oral or intravenous metronidazole is successful. © 2015. Ibn Sina Trust.

The Hindu formula concerns three types of prints: the Shankh which resembles the ulnar and radial loop; the Chakra or whorl; and the Shakti resembling the composite. The scientific study of papillary ridges of hands and feet is credited as beginning with the work of Joannes Evangelista Purkinje, a Chech psychologist and biologist in 1823. A dermtoglyphic survey on frequency of patterns and related personal attributes in medical students of MIMS medical college has been attempted. 212 students of MIMS admitted during 2004-2005 and 2005-2006 academic year were selected as the subjects for the study. One student has a tented arch, indicates student is enthusiastic. Ulnar loop incidence is 97%, which indicates conventional type of personality of students.

Potter's Syndrome is a rare congenital disorder which is diagnosed at birth. It refers to a group of findings which are associated with the lack of amniotic fluid due to renal failure in an unborn infant. It is characterized by the typical physical appearance of a foetus, which is associated with pulmonary hypoplasia. In oligohydramnios, the foetus is not cushioned from the walls of the uterus. The pressure of the uterine wall leads to an unusual facial appearance, abnormal limbs, or limbs that are held in abnormal positions or contractures. The foetus will die soon after the birth due to respiratory insufficiency.
