Fifty patients of chronic diarrhoea in the pediatric age group admitted in Kalawati Saran Children's Hospital were studied. Thirty cases were diagnosed to be suffering from giardiasis based on microscopy of fecal and/or duodenal fluid specimens. Fecal specimen microscopy missed two cases which were diagnosed by duodenal aspirate microscopy and vice-versa.(More)
To examine a possible sexual dimorphism in the osmotic control of arginine vasotocin (AVT) release in birds, age-matched male and female Japanese quail were subjected to water deprivation. The observed increased plasma osmolalities were accompanied by increased plasma AVT levels. Plasma mesotocin levels did not change with water deprivation. The sensitivity(More)
BACKGROUND Isolated ectopic gastric varices (IGV2) are present either in the body or antrum of the stomach or upper duodenum. The prevalence, natural history and clinical significance of these varices has not been adequately described. MATERIALS AND METHODS Consecutive patients with portal hypertension, prospectively studied and diagnosed to have IGV2,(More)
Twenty-seven patients with gall bladder perforation were reviewed. Free perforation into the peritoneal cavity producing bile peritonitis occurred in 45% of patients. Bilio-enteric fistulae were encountered in 48% of our patients. Five patients had gall stone ileus. A mortality of 11% reflects the serious nature of the condition. Selection of the optimum(More)
BACKGROUND Autoregulation of blood flow that maintains steady perfusion over the range of systemic blood pressure is compromised by stroke. OBJECTIVES To determine whether cerebral vasoregulation is impaired in stroke during orthostatic stress. METHODS Subjects included 30 control subjects, 30 with hypertension, and 20 with minor stroke and were studied(More)
We present a 50-year-old male with renal cell carcinoma and hypercalcemia presenting as acute pancreatitis. The sudden onset of epigastralgia, acute pancreatitis and hypercalcemia with raised parathyroid-like peptide levels in this patient could not be explained except for renal cell carcinoma. This is the first report of such a complication in renal cell(More)
Recent evidences prove that, release of potent lysosomal enzymes e.g. beta-Glucuronidase by degranulation of polymorponuclear leukocytes in host gingiva may contribute significantly to tissue destruction and the pathogenesis of periodontal disease. The purpose of the present study was to compare and correlate GCF beta-Glucuronidase with periodontal status(More)
One hundred female patients clinically diagnosed as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) were studied for the presence of chlamydial infection by cytology and antigen detection. Cervical smears stained by Giemsa revealed inclusion bodies, only in 3 percent of cases. While using Immunocomb Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA) test, antigen was detected in 13% of cases,(More)
