Each culture influences the perceptions of illness and pathways to health care that its members follow. Non-biomedical beliefs about psychosis and treatment are reported from the developing world. This study explored people's perceptions on psychosis to understand local perceptions of the condition. Focus group discussions were conducted with people who… (More)
The solitary median maxillary central incisor (SMMCI) syndrome is a rare dental anomaly and has an incidence of 1:50,000 live births. In SMMCI, there is only one central incisor present, and it develops exactly at the midline. SMMCI occurrence has been described with growth hormone deficiency or other structural anomalies in the midline of the body. In this… (More)
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) forms an integral functional part of stomatognathic system. Position, shape, structure and function of teeth have an influence on the proper functioning and health of TMJ. But a problem associated with TMJ is often neglected, and treatment for it is mostly restricted to palliative therapy. A proper understanding of the… (More)
The management of patients with pain in today's general practice has become a major concern and sometimes this pain is related to some rare causes. A male patient aged 26 years reported with pain in the lower left molar region (36) and then an intra-oral periapical radiograph (IOPA), and orthopantomograph was taken. IOPA revealed the presence of… (More)
This case report describes endodontic treatment completed in a peg-shaped maxillary lateral incisor, with single root and five root canals of which, one is due to dens invaginatus. Cone beam computed tomogram scanning confirmed the unique morphology of the tooth. New nomenclature for the five canals is proposed.
In the title binuclear copper(II) complex, [Cu2(ClO4)2(OH)2(C10H8N2)2], the Cu(II) ion is coordinated in the form of a Jahn-Teller distorted octahedron by two bi-pyridine N atoms, two perchlorate O atoms and two hydroxide O atoms, and displays a distorted octa-hedral geometry. The mol-ecule belongs to the symmetry point group C 2h . The Cu(II) ion is… (More)
In the title compound, C(32)H(33)NO(6)S, the indole ring system makes dihedral angles of 62.78 (10) and 80.53 (8)°, respectively, with the phenyl and benzene rings. In the crystal, the mol-ecules are linked through inter-molecular C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming a chain along the a axis. Between the chains, a weak aromatic π-π stacking inter-action… (More)
In the title compound, C(24)H(21)NO(4)S, the indole ring system makes dihedral angles of 77.8 (1) and 85.4 (1)°, respectively, with the S- and C-bound phenyl rings. The mol-ecular structure is stabilized by a weak intra-molecular C-H⋯O hydrogen bond. In the crystal, a weak inter-molecular C-H⋯O hydrogen bond and a C-H⋯π inter-action are also observed.
