Necrobiosis lipoidica is a non-infectious granulomatous disease of unknown etiology and pathogenesis. It is more commonly seen in young adults and early middle aged individual. It is often associated with diabetics and typified by indurated plaques of the shin. Herein, we report a case of necrobiosis lipoidica in a 62 year old non-diabetic female who presented with the complaints of pain and swelling over right knee joint for 3 weeks duration. On examination there was diffuse edema of right lower limb and pigmentation with papule in the right knee joint. Skin biopsy taken from the papule and sent for histopathological examination. Histopathology showed a granulomatous dermatitis, pointing towards necrobiosis lipoidica. Special stain showed Acid Fast Bacilli negative. Histopathology plays a major role in the diagnosis of this rare disorder, besides clinical history. Source

The most common type of lesions in the ovary are the cysts and the tumors. Majority of the ovarian cysts are benign with few cases being malignant. This is a retrospective study of all ovarian lesions in the department of Pathology, SBMCH, Chennai for a period of 1 year from August 2012 to September 2013. The specimens were received in 10% formalin from the obstetrics and gynaecological department of SBMCH. The specimen was processed in the histopathology lab and routine Haemotoxylin & eosin staining done. A total of 80 cases were studied during this one year period. Among the 80 cases, cystic lesions accounted for 22.5%,benign ovarian tumor accounted for a majority of 72.5% and malignant tumor for 3.75%. 1 case of borderline seromucinous tumor was reported. The most common type of ovarian tumor was simple serous cystadenoma (42%) followed by mature cystic teratoma (12.5%).2 cases of benign mucinous cystadenoma reported.3 cases of serous papillary cystadenocarcinoma were reported.

Menstrual cycle function was closely associated with a women’s ability to become pregnant. Various studies explain the possible relationship between menstrual cycle pattern and other reproductive outcome. Based on this background this study was designed to know the menstrual cycle pattern in adolescent girls and the same in their mother. The aim of the study is to assess the menstrual cycle pattern in relation to food habit, BMI and same as in their mothers. 185 adolescent girls (aged 17-22 years) and their parents (34-55) were included in this study. Age at menarche, menstrual cycle pattern, and religion and food pattern were asked as questioner. Height and Weight were measured. Body mass index were calculated by using (BMI; kg m) as an index relative weight. In 87.02% of adolescent girls and 84.86% mothers cycles were regular. Only a few cases both the mothers and daughters had irregular cyclical. The irregular cycle pattern in adolescent girls correlated with increased BMI. Menstrual cycle pattern is associated with the nutritional status and life style modification. Future research could build on this study by associations between parent and daughters cycle by their physical activity. © 2016, Global Research Online. All rights reserved. Source

65/F came with c/o swelling in the left breast for 6months, on palpation - single nodule felt beneath the nipple and areola. Aspirated blood stained material from the swelling and reported as carcinoma left breast. Mastectomy was done and the specimen was sent for histopathological examination to department of pathology, SBMCH and reported as Ductal carcinoma insitu with microinvasion. DCIS accounts for 25% of all breast carcinomas while DCIS with microinvasion accounts 5% - 10% only. Most commonly occurs during 6th decade. Overall prognosis for microinvasive ductal carcinoma is very good. Source

To estimate the sero prevalence of rubella among children attending a tertiary care hospital, in the age group of 1 to 14 years who have not received MMR vaccine.This was a hospital based prospective descriptive study. Blood samples were collected from 50 children aged 1-14 years and analyzed for IgG antibody titres for rubella infection by a quantitative enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Data on the socio epidemiological factors was obtained from the parents. The overall rubella sero positivity rate was 58%. The sero positivity increased with age; which was 33% among 1 to 5 years, 55% among 6 to 10 years and 89% among 10 to 14 years. (P=0.01). The study provides information on the increasing sero prevalence of rubella with increasing age among unimmunized children. Since there is an overall sero positivity of only 58% among children, rubella containing vaccine should be included in the National Immunization Schedule to reduce the rubella burden. Source
