Predictors of mortality in very low birth weight neonates in India.
TLDR
The survival rate was found to increase with the increase in birth weight and gestational age, and common antenatal and perinatal predictors of mortality in VLBW infants in India include maternal bleed, failure to administer antenatal steroids, low Apgar score, apnoea, extreme prematurity, neonatal septicaemia and shock.

Congenital malformations at birth.
TLDR
The incidence of congenital malformations at birth was higher in stillborn and low birthweight babies and the babies born to mothers of gravidity 4 or more had significantly higher incidence of malformation when compared with mothers of lower gravidity. Expand
Correlation between clinical features and degree of immunosuppression in HIV infected children.
TLDR
The correlation of CD4% with clinical status in 102 HIV infected antiretroviral naive children correlated significantly with the deterioration of the WHO clinical stages and increasing grades of protein energy malnutrition. Expand
A study of clinico-haematological profiles of pancytopenia in children
TLDR
The clinico-haematological profile of pancytopenia in children from the Departments of Pediatrics and Pathology, Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, India, over a period of 30 months showed that aplastic anaemia was the most common cause followed by acute leukaemia and infections were the third most common causes.

Frequencies of CYP2C9 polymorphisms in North Indian population and their association with drug levels in children on phenytoin monotherapy
TLDR
Serum phenytoin levels are higher in polymorphic groups (*3) which suggest their poor metabolizing nature, and CYP2C9*3 is more common than *2 in the present study. Expand
Meconium stained amniotic fluid: antenatal, intrapartum and neonatal attributes.
TLDR
Selective approach can be adopted for babies with MSAF reserving intratracheal suctioning at birth for depressed neonate or evidence of fetal distress in utero. Expand
Genital standards for south Indian male newborns
TLDR
There was a linear increase in the above measurements with increasing gestational age, and the prepucial type was tubular in 103 (76.3%) babies and of ring type in 32 (23.7%). Expand
Role of steroids on the clinical course and outcome of meconium aspiration syndrome-a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Steroids are effective in the management of MAS and route of administration does not have a bearing on the efficacy. Expand
Maternal and perinatal mortality due to eclampsia.
TLDR
It is suggested that more frequent use of properly timed cesarean section can improve the maternal outcome and avoid maternal and perinatal loss. Expand
Role of antibiotics in meconium aspiration syndrome
TLDR
Routine antibiotic therapy is not necessary for managing MAS, and the most common radiological features were parenchymal infiltrates followed by hyperinflation. Expand
