Otomycosis is a common fungal infection of the ear that is seen in the tropical and subtropical regions of the world. We performed mycologic analyses on debris and scraping samples from the external ear canals of 95 patients who had been clinically diagnosed with otomycosis. Seventy-one samples (74.7%) were positive for fungal growth; two of these samples(More)
Two arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, Glomus mosseae and Acaulospora laevis either alone or in combination with Trichoderma viride showed the dependence of Rauwolfia serpentina on endomycorrhizal fungi. After 60 days, G. mosseae singly or in combination with Trichoderma viride showed enhanced height increment compared to control plants. Maximum phosphorus(More)
Malabar glory lily (Gloriosa superba L.) is a medicinally potent plant species used for the production of alkaloid colchicine. With ever increasing demand, there is a pressing need to conserve it through biotechnological approaches. A large number of complete plantlets were obtained by direct regeneration from the non-dormant tuber explants on Murashige and(More)
We report four siblings showing features of a pontobulbar palsy, a mixed spinal and upper motor neuropathy and variable deafness. The observation of affected males and females born to consanguineous first cousin parents suggests autosomal recessive inheritance. Two children presented in the first 16 months of life with stridor and died of respiratory(More)
Central giant cell granuloma (CGCG) is a benign, non-odontogenic bone lesion of jaw. The condition is relatively infrequent and affects mainly children and young adults with a certain predominance among females and exhibits variable aggressiveness. Giant cell lesion associated with hyperparathyroidism is known as Brown tumor. Brown tumor is one of the bony(More)
Melasma, a hypermelanosis of the face, is a common skin problem of middle-aged women of all racial groups, especially with dark complexion. Its precise etio-pathogenesis is evasive, genetic influences, exposure to sunlight, pregnancy, oral contraceptives, estrogen-progesterone therapies, thyroid dysfunction, cosmetics, and drugs have been proposed.(More)
Ever since its inception a couple of centuries ago, hand dermatitis/eczema has been in the reckoning. Idiosyncrasies continued to loom large thereafter, till it acquired its appropriate position. Dermatitis/eczema are synonymous, often used to indicate a polymorphic pattern of the inflammation of the skin, characterized by pruritus, erythema and(More)
An efficient and environmental benign regioselective synthesis of some new pyrazol-1'-ylpyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidines (7b-h) has been accomplished via treatment of 3(5)-amino-5(3)-hydrazinopyrazole dihydrochloride (5) with several unsymmetrical 1,3-diketones (6b-h) using water as a solvent without any catalysts or additives. The structure of 7b-h was(More)
Diabetes mellitus is a worldwide public health problem. It manifests as either insulin-dependent or noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. It is associated with several dermatoses, which need to be addressed individually. Dermatoses often provide clues to the status of diabetes. The presence of dermatoses may compound the challenges confronted by the(More)
