BACKGROUND & AIMS There are insufficient data about the appearance of isolated pancreatic tuberculosis on endoscopic ultrasound (EUS). The safety and efficacy of antitubercular therapy (ATT) in patients with pancreatic tuberculosis with cholestasis are also relatively unknown. METHODS We evaluated 6 patients with isolated pancreatic head tuberculosis(More)
BACKGROUND Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) has a variable clinical expression. Symptomatic PHPT is still the predominant form of the disease in many parts of the world, especially developing countries. Because the clinical profile of the disease has changed from that described in the past, we sought to improve our understanding of the disease in patients(More)
OBJECTIVE Clinical experience collated over the last 11 years at our center suggests that Kawasaki disease (KD) affects older children more frequently as compared to the Western literature. In this study we have compared the clinical profile of KD in children above 5 years of age (Group I) with those below 5 years (Group II). DESIGN Chart review of(More)
BACKGROUND Among the parathyroid imaging techniques, ultrasonography (USG) has the advantage of convenience, easy availability and low cost. OBJECTIVE To study the role of USG in localization (side and/or site) of abnormal parathyroid glands in primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) and to compare with radionuclide scintigraphy and the 'gold standard',(More)
Thyroid function tests (serum levels of thyroxine-T4, triiodothyronine-T3 and thyroid stimulating hormone-TSH) were performed in fifty-eight men (mean age: 31.7±10.6 years; mean duration of lead exposure: 156.9±122.7 months). These subjects were exposed to lead either as petrol pump workers or automobile mechanics. The mean whole blood lead (Pb-B) levels(More)
The glutathione S-transferase (GSTs) are polymorphic supergene family of detoxification enzymes that are involved in the metabolism of numerous potential carcinogens. Several allelic variants of polymorphic GSTs show impaired enzyme activity and are suspected to increase the susceptibility to various cancers. To find out the association of GST variants with(More)
The assessment of bone marrow involvement (BMI) is important for accurate prognostication and deciding the appropriate therapy in patients with lymphoma. Conventional bilateral iliac crest biopsies (ILBMBs) have many limitations. F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) is a useful investigative tool for(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical, biochemical, ultrasonographic, radionuclide and cytomorphological observations in Lymphocytic thyroiditis (LT), to define the cytological grading criteria on smears and correlation of grades with above parameters. METHODS This prospective study was conducted on 76 patients attending the Fine needle aspiration cytology clinic of a(More)
BACKGROUND Tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO) is a rare paraneoplastic syndrome, usually caused by small benign mesenchymal tumors. The localization of these tumors is challenging, however, essential for the management. We compared the utility of F-FDG PET/CT and Ga DOTATATE PET/CT to detect the site of primary tumor in patients with suspicion of TIO. (More)
Thromboembolism is a rare life-threatening complication of childhood nephrotic syndrome. We present the clinical profile and outcome of 34 children with 35 events of thromboembolic complications with nephrotic syndrome. Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) was the commonest complication seen in 11 (31.4 %) children followed by pulmonary thromboembolism and deep(More)
