Kartagener's syndrome is a rare congenital disorder consisting of sinusitis, bronchiectasis with situs inversus and is associated with infertility. It is the subgroup of disorder called primary ciliary dyskinesia in which well defined morphological or functional abnormalities of cilia result in sinopulmonary involvement with varying severity. Clinical manifestations involve chronic and/or recurrent respiratory infections with much heterogeneity in multisystem involvement. Early diagnosis and management of this condition help to prevent irreversible lung damage and prevent chronic lifelong sequelae. © 2014 Hosting by Elsevier B.V. Source

Introduction: Scrub Typhus is a trombiculid mite-borne rickettsial zoonosis caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi, which is widely endemic in the Asia-Pacific region and threatens a population of millions. Aim and Objectives: To study epidemiology and clinical profile of Scrub Typhus Cases in a clinical setting and to clarify current diagnostic issues of scrub typhus. Materials and methods: Study period was August to December 2014. 197 clinical cases confirmed by positive result in immunoglobulin (IgG, IgM or IgA) using a rapid immuno-chromatographic assay (Bioline SD Tsutsugamushi One Step Scrub typhus Antibody test) were included. Results: 27.4% cases were in the age group of 20-30 years followed by cases in the age group of 10-20 as well as 40-50 years (15.7%). More than half of all the cases were female (58.4%). 29.9% were still studying and and 17.8% were illiterate/just literate. 29.4% cases were from district Dehradun followed by cases from district Saharanpur (25.4%). Most cases were not working, i.e. were housewives (42.6%) followed by students (29.9%). Most common presenting features were fever with gastro-intestinal symptoms (51.3%). All the cases were treated with appropriate antibiotics (Doxycycline, Azithromycin and a higher generation cephalosporin for secondary complications). 38.1% cases went on to develop a complication during their hospital stay. All were discharged in satisfactory condition except for two mortalities during the study period. © 2015, Indian Association of Preventive and Social Medicine. All rights reserved. Source

Poisoning is a common medical emergency in children. Most of the poisoning in children is accidental. Unfortunately, the incidence of deliberate poisoning among adolescents is increasing due to changing familial and social conditions in our society. Study design: prospective analysis of poisoning seen in children between January 2010 and December 2013 in an academic center of northern India. Results: Eighty one children (Boys 45, 55%; age median [range] 13 [1-18]) were included. All poisoning episodes were either suicidal (38, 46.9%) or accidental (43, 53.1%). Most of the poisoning events in pre-adolescent children were accidental (34/35, 97%) and among adolescents (13-18 years age group) were suicidal (37/45, 80.4%). The most commonly ingested poisoning agent was kerosene (10/35, 28.6%) in <12 age group and organo-phosphorus compound (8/37, 21.6%) in adolescents. Conclusion: We need to take preventive measures for accidental and intentional poisoning in pre-adolescents and adolescents age group respectively. © 2014, JK Science. All rights reserved. Source

Human beings are able to perceive hundreds of shades of color which depends on the three types of cone system and various ratios of stimulation in response to different wavelengths. Perceptually and cognitively, men and women may experience appearance of color differently. Therefore, this study was planned to assess and compare color vision in male and female subjects. This study was carried out in the department of Physiology, SGRRIM&HS, Dehradun on 60 ocular healthy subjects (equal number of males and females) of 17-22 years of age group. The task was to match 22 test color strips with 2 shade charts of different colors. Total number of correct answers and total time taken in matching all the test color strips with the shade charts was recorded in both the sexes and analyzed. The results of this study showed that overall, females gave more correct responses (P<0.001) and also took less time (P<0.01) than males. Color wise also, females gave more correct responses especially for red (P<.001) and green color (P<0.01). The conclusion states that the females can see more shades of colors than males. Source
