Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic disorder characterized by chronic hyperglycemia and disturbances of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism associated with absolute or relative insulin deficiency. The present study was carried out to establish a correlationship between hyperglycemia of varying intensity with hyperlipidemia in NIDDM patients taking oral hypoglycemic drugs. The objective of the work was to find out whether hyperlipidemia was affected due to administration of a particular group of hypoglycemic drug. The total numbers of patients under study were 36 and control group consisted of 15 persons. All the 36 cases were divided according to age groups, sex, socio-economic status and dietary habits. Patients were divided into three groups i) patients taking Sulfonylurea ii) patients taking Biguanides and iii) patients taking Thiazolidinedione group of oral hypoglycemic. A morning blood sample after overnight fast was collected and serum total cholesterol, HDL and LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and plasma glucose were estimated. From the present study it is clear that Biguanides are more effective than Sulphonylureas in improving lipid profile in NIDDM cases. Also, the study suggests that NIDDM patients on oral hypoglycemic drugs are not susceptible to develop coronary artery disease.

Status epilepticus (SE) is a common, life threatening neurologic disorder that is essentially an acute, prolonged epileptic crisis. SE can represent an exacerbation of a pre-existing seizure disorder, the initial manifestation of a seizure disorder, or an insult other than a seizure disorder.To study the aetiology, clinical profile, and outcome of SE in pediatric age group. Setting and study design: Prospective study at a tertiary care medical college hospital in Bihar, India.Study was carried out for a period of one year (from April 2008 to March 2009). Seventy patients of SE in the age group of six month to 12 years were included in the study. Clinical history, general and systemic examination and relevant investigations along with pretested questionnaire were used to categorise different variables. Independent t-test was used for continuous variables and chi-square test for categorical variables.Mean age for the study population was found to be 5.94 years (SD=3.152). Preponderance of male (60%) over female (40%) was observed. Aetiology included Idiopathic (27.14%), remote symptomatic (20%), acute symptomatic (47.14%), febrile (2.86%) and progressive encephalopathy (2.86%) groups. Generalised tonic clonic convulsion (GTC) convulsion was observed in 91.4% of SE patients while 8.6% had partial SE. Eighteen patients (25.7%) had prior history of convulsion whereas 52 patients (74.3%) presented with SE as first episode of convulsion. In our study, mortality rate was found to be 31.4% and acute symptomatic causes were responsible for most of the deaths.SE is a severe life threatening emergency with substantial morbidity and mortality. Patients with younger age and male sex are slightly more vulnerable to develop SE. Longer duration of SE and acute symptomatic aetiologies are independent predictors for poor outcome.

Microfilariae in bone marrow aspirates have been reported occasionally, but until now no case has been reported in association with acute leukaemia. This is a unique finding, not mentioned in literature. Microfilariae are seen mainly in peripheral blood smears (PBS) and rarely in bone marrow aspirate, but this surprisingly did not show any parasite in PBS. Meticulous examination of bone marrow smears revealed acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and a few interspersed microfilariae. This rare combination, reported for the first time, definitely needs a space in literature. © Indian Society of Haematology & Transfusion Medicine 2011.

Malignant Melanoma of nasal cavity is an extremely rare tumour and is more aggressive than its cutaneous counterpart. Primary malignant melanoma of nasal cavity arise from melanocytes located in the mucous membrane. Only 0.5% of malignant melanoma arises in nasal cavity. We report a case of malignant melanoma of the nasal cavity in a 51-year-old male who presented with swelling of nose, nasal block and epistaxis. By brush cytology and CT scan imaging, the pre operative diagnosis of malignant melanoma was made which was later confirmed by histopathology examination along with immunohistochemistry by using S100 and HMB 45. Malignant melanoma of nose is rare tumour, with aggressive behavior and poor prognosis. Rarity of this lesion warrants its mention and emphasizes the importance of considering malignant melanoma among the differential diagnosis of tumours of nose and paranasal sinuses. © 2015, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research.

Among all type of accidents, those caused by motor vehicle claims the largest toll of life and tend to be the most serious. The present prospective study was conducted in the Department of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology, Patna Medical College and Hospital Patna from September, 2007 to April, 2009 on 100 cases. The primary aim of this study was to find out nature and types of cranio-cerebral injuries (CCI) sustained in fatal road traffic accidents (RTA) and make an attempt to establish various causative factors, patterns and distribution of CCI and thereby to plan successful measures against it. Our study shows that 30% victims were of middle age group, male: female ratio was 4.5:1. Maximum number of cases was during the summer season. 66% victims were pedestrians; in 47% cases heavy vehicles were involved. In 86% cases the death was due to fatal cranio-cerebral injuries alone. In 30% cases the death was instantaneous, 65% cases died within 48 hours after the injury and were able to obtain only minor surgical aid and only 9% cases died after 48 hours of the injury receiving definitive surgical treatment.

Wandering spleen is a rare occurrence. Torsion of the splenic pedicle is the major life-threatening complication of this entity. Preoperative diagnosis is based on radiological investigation. We report two consecutive cases, one adult and one child, in whom torsion in a wandering spleen was diagnosed based on a typical whirled appearance of the splenic vessels on computed tomography. We present a review of computed tomographic appearance of splenic torsion, and emphasize the "whirled appearance" as a specific sign for splenic torsion in wandering spleen. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.

A stampede is a disastrous event in which a crowd of people collectively begins running with no clear direction causing large number of casualties. This usually occurs during religious pilgrimages, professional sporting or in times of panic, as in fire or explosion when large number of people try to get away from a close space like theatre, fair etc. On 3rd October 2014, during Dussahera celebration at Gandhi Maidan Patna, when people were returning back after watching the "Ravan Vadh" on the rumor of fall of live electric wire in the ground, crowd started running to get away and some of them were fallen and crushed by the unruly mob leading to heavy casualty. In this accident 33 deaths occur and most of them (81.82%) were females and of younger age group. Multiple blunt force injuries especially on chest and abdomen were seen in most of the cases. Cause of death was Traumatic Asphyxia (54.55%) and Shock and hemorrhage (39.39%) in most of the cases. The cases of head injury were few, seen in only in 6.06% cases.

Background Cervical dilatation documented on partogram indicates expected rate of progress of labour and deviations from alert line indicates abnormal progress of labour. Its early detection and timely intervention can reduce fetomaternal morbidity. Purpose To study the role of partogram in the management of labouring mothers with high risk pregnancies at a tertiary care centre. Method Four hundred primigravidas with high risk pregnancies in active labour (with cervical dilatation ≥ 4 cm) were studied, divided into two groups as Partogram and no Partogram group and each group consisted of 200 patients. In Partogram group, progress of labour was documented on modified WHO partograph along with the notes on progress sheet of case record file while by standard notes only in no Partogram group. Cases included were pregnancy-induced hypertension, gestational diabetes mellitus, cholestasis, hypothyroidism, history of previous one LSCS for trial of labour, postdated pregnancy. Management of labour was standardised using set protocols of intrapartum care followed by analysis of duration of labour, rate of intervention, maternal and perinatal outcomes in both group. Result Though percentage of normal vaginal delivery was higher in Partogram group (71.5 %) than no Partogram group (68 %), no statistically significant difference was found between two groups regarding mean duration of active phase of first and second stage of labour, rate of operative vaginal deliveries (partogram 12 % and no partogram 12.5 %) and of caesarean section (Partogram 16.5 %, no Partogram 18.5 %) and perinatal outcome. Conclusion In this study, partogram had no significant impact on duration of labour, rate of operative interventions and perinatal outcome following its use in the labour management of high risk pregnancies. © 2014 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Cases of post-Hansen’s deformities are still prevalent in our country. They do report for reconstructive surgeries at tertiary level hospitals for surgery. Most patients were in the age group 11-30 years. Males were in higher proportions. In cases of hand deformities, Lasso procedure was the commonest operation. Among postoperative complications, fusion of proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joints and stiffness followed by infection were the commonest complications. © 2016, Indian Medical Association.
