Objective: : This study aims to assess the intern's beliefs about mental illness, their attitude towards psychiatry and psychiatry as a career choice. Methods: : In a cross-sectional design, one hundred and seventy six interns from the two medical colleges completed the Belief about Mental illness scale and Attitudes Towards Psychiatry (ATP-29) scale. Results: : Majority of the interns considered mentally ill patients as dangerous, unpredictable, cannot take up major responsibilities, cannot be a good parent, have poor interpersonal or social skills. The attitude towards psychiatry overall, functioning of a psychiatrist, efficacy of psychiatry treatment was found to be good in over 90% of the interns. The attitude towards career and reward aspect of psychiatry was not favorable in about 40%. About 13% considered psychiatry as a career choice. Conclusions: : Beliefs about mental illness continue to be negative. Though the attitude towards psychiatry, psychiatrist and treatment efficacy is good, the social and reward aspects of psychiatry are not encouraging. Steps for changes in undergraduate medical education policies are required. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.

Copper plays an important role in inflammation and tumors. Breast tumor cells can readily take up copper from the blood. Copper is an important angiogenic factor for tumors. The present study was undertaken to determine the serum levels of copper in different stages of breast cancer and to compare with normal individuals. 99 participants (30 women healthy females as controls and 69 women with histologically proven breast cancer as cases) were included in the study after obtaining written informed consent. Total serum copper levels were determined in different stages of cancer from early to advance. SPSS 20.0 was used for statistical analysis. Data were analyzed by Student't' test. P-value less than 0.05 were considered significant. Copper levels were significantly increased (p < 0.0001) as the disease progressed from stage 1 to stage 3 advanced breast cancer in postmenopausal women. Lowering Copper in diet of breast cancer patients may also be useful in delaying the progress of the disease and making treatment more effective.

We report a patient with Downs syndrome and neurofibromatosis who presented with a keloid, sebaceous cyst and acanthosis nigricans, along with dental and ophthalmological defects. The coexistence of neurofibromatosis type 1 and Downs syndrome which are two unrelated genetic conditions is itself a rarity.

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is a condition in which non-native bacteria and/or native bacteria are present in increased numbers in the small bowel, resulting in excessive fermentation, inflammation or malabsorption. Patients with SIBO vary in presentation, from being only mildly symptomatic to suffering from chronic diarrhoea, weight loss and malabsorption. A number of diagnostic tests are currently available, with aspiration of the small intestinal fluid being the gold standard. Treatment encompasses a multimodal approach including treatment of the underlying disease, nutritional support and antibiotic therapy. In this review, we discuss the risk factors, clinical manifestations, diagnosis and treatment of SIBO in older people. Copyright © 2015 Cambridge University Press.

Cortical pathways for perception of sensory input are believed to be modulated by signals from other modalities. It is responsible for the fine tuning of the ability to perceive in the absence of a particular sense. In blind individuals associative visual areas of occipital cortex are polymodal in nature involved in processing of somatosensory and auditory signals in the absence of visual stimuli. Objectives – To study and compare the somatosensory evoked individuals in congenitally blind individuals. Materials & Methods – Ten Visually challenged females in the age group of 18-30 yrs were included in the study along with ten age & sex matched individuals. Somatosensory evoked potentials were recorded on Nicolet Viking select neurodiagnostic system version 10.0 using 3-channel with normal averaging technique. Conclusions – In congenitally blind individuals, the latency of N20 and P25 are shortened indicating faster conduction along the involved neural tracts & amplitude of N20 & P25 are increased which indicates greater somatosensory cortical activity. © 2016, Association of Physiologists and Pharmacologists of India.

Hemostatic system is designed to maintain blood in a fluid state yet provide important defenses against bleeding when injury occurs to the vessel. During surgery, patients are exposed to hemostatic stress causing complications of either hypercoagulability or hemorrhage. The goal of the present study was to describe the clotting changes in patients who underwent major surgeries especially procoagulant mechanisms. Methods: 30 patients belonging to both sexes who were undergoing surgery for various reasons were included in the study. Tests to assess the integrity of hemostatic system were conducted. Results: Analysed and expressed in mean and SD. There was a significant (p<0.05) difference in the hemostatic parameters like bleeding time, clotting time, thrombin time, platelet count and fibrinogen concentration between the preoperative and postoperative periods. © 2015, Association of Physiologists and Pharmacologists of India.

Premature ejaculation (PE) is a common male sexual disorder. It is defined by the Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders as "ejaculation occurring, without control, on or shortly after penetration and before the person wishes it, causing marked distress or interpersonal difficulty. [1] Although the timing of intravaginal ejaculatory latency time (IELT) (i.e., time from penetration to ejaculation) is not included in this definition, an IELT of <2 min, or ejaculation occurring before penetration, has been considered consistent with PE. [2] Management involves both the patient and his partner. Therapeutic options should suit both partners and be appropriate to their habit in planning and frequency of intercourse. Follow-up at appropriate intervals to judge efficacy, titrate dosage of pharmacological treatments and ascertain side effects is mandatory.

Porokeratosis represents a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized clinically by a distinctive ridge-like border and histologically by cornoid lamellae. Gardners syndrome, a variant of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by colorectal polyps, osteomas, epidermoid cysts and soft tissue tumors. Here we report a case of 18 yr old female who presented with porokeratosis of Mibelli with osteoma, multiple epidermoid cytsts, and solitary rectal polyp.
