Background: Infertility is increasingly becoming a significant health problem in many areas of the world. The infection which is caused by Chlamydia trachomatis is a major cause of tubal factor infertility secondary to salpingitis. However, the data which pertains to infertility attributed to the C. trachomatis infection is limited in India. Aims: To evaluate the chlamydial infection in women who suffered from infertility and to investigate the possible role of the chlamydia serology as a screening test for tubal infertility. Method: This study was aimed at evaluating the chlamydial infection in fifty women with primary infertility and at investigating the possible role of the chlamydial serology as a screening test for tubal infertility, by the detection of the anti-chlamydial IgM antibodies by using E.L.I.S.A. Setting and Design: The present prospective study was carried out at a tertiary care hospital in north India. Results: In this study, a high seropositivity (60%) for the antichlamydial antibody was observed. 52% females showed bilateral tubal blockage, while the most common site of the blockage was the ampullary portion (36%). Conclusion: These findings highlighted a strong correlation between the tubal factor infertility and the antichlamydial antibodies. It also stressed on the need of the screening of infertile women for C. trachomatis with laboratory investigations, which could provide a rapid and specific diagnosis so that early therapeutic interventions could be instituted.

Drug-induced acute pancreatitis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of acute abdomen occurring soon after the initiation of antitubercular treatment. Isoniazid-induced pancreatitis is potentially reversible: early recognition and drug withdrawal are warranted in the appropriate clinical setting. We present a case of reversible acute pancreatitis after isoniazid treatment of lymph node tuberculosis, followed by the recurrence of pancreatitis upon the reintroduction of the drug. Source

A patient of tuberculous osteomyelitis of the bone flap following craniotomy for acute subdural hemorrhage which was treated at Surat Municipal Institute of Medical Education & Research (SMIMER) from June 2010 has been reported. This report emphasizes the fact that while treating osteomyelitis of bone flap following craniotomy, possibility of tuberculosis should be considered, especially in our country. Treatment wise, the disease responded readily to routine anti-tubercular chemotherapy. Source

The placement of cases of Extrapulmonary Tuberculosis (EPTB) on the appropriate Directly Observed Treatment Short Course (DOTS) regimen remains a problematic issue in India and often, consultants delay this, leading to significant avoidable pain, discomfort and reduction in the quality of life of the patients. In contrast, a prompt institution of the DOTS regimen can regress such problems, even at a delayed stage. The following case report on polyarticular tuberculosis which involved the bilateral knee and ankle joints without a pulmonary or disseminated form of tuberculosis, amply highlights these facts.
