Background: India in 1951 became the first country in the world to launch a state sponsored family planning programme with the goal of lowering fertility and lowering growth rate. The Programme lays utmost emphasis on quality of services. The quality of services in turn is dependent upon the training of the medical and para-medical man power. Objective: To analyze the deficiencies in the working of Health workers and the areas requiring training. Study design: The study design was cross-sectional. Participants: 34 Health Workers (15 male&19 female) Material & Method: Block Beri is a field practice area attached to Pt. B.D.S. PGIMS Rohtak. All the 24 sub centers of Block Beri were personally visited by the investigator. The workers employed at the time of the study were interviewed using a pre tested semi-structured Proforma. The activities of the workers were observed, both at the sub center as well as the field. Results: the investigator observed that 93.33% male worker check red blood pressure correctly and 88.66% prepared correctly annual action plan while 89.7% female worker correctly measured Hb and 73.68% female worker conducting deliveries. Conclusion: Updating of knowledge and improvement in skills is associated with the development of favorable attitudes, motivation and feeling of commitment in work. © 2016, Indian Journal of Public Health Research and Development.

Hepatitis B virus is responsible for causing hepatic complications like acute and chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma along with some uncommon immune mediated extrahepatic manifestations. Vasculitis remains an uncommon extrahepatic complication of hepatitis B virus infection. Herein we report a case of hepatitis B infection that presented with leucocytoclastic vasculitis as an initial manifestation and managed successfully with entacavir therapy. © 2016, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research.

Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the utility of the morphometric parameters in cytological aspirates in the categorization of breast lesions. Material and Method: The study was carried out on 50 females presenting with a breast lump for fine needle aspiration cytology. Air-dried smears from the aspirate were stained with Leishman and Giemsa stains while alcohol-fixed preparations were stained with the PAP stain. They were subsequently categorized into benign, borderline and malignant categories on light microscopy. Morphometry was performed on the stained smears. The morphometric parameters studied were mean nuclear area, mean cytoplasmic area, perimeter and nuclear/cytoplasm ratio. Results: Morphometric parameters revealed a progressive and statistically significant increase in values from benign to borderline to malignant cases. On comparing benign with borderline and malignant, all the four parameters were found to be statistically significant with a p-value of less than 0.05 while on comparing borderline with malignant, two of the parameters, i.e. mean nuclear area and mean cytoplasmic area, were statistically significant. Conclusion: This study introduces morphometry as a highly objective tool to supplement the entirely subjective fine needle aspiration cytology in the crucial differentiation of benign from malignant lesions and especially the borderline cases in the gray zone comprising of atypical ductal hyperplasia and ductal carcinoma in situ. © 2015, Federation of Turkish Pathology Societies.
