Thirty cases of CNS Tuberculomas were studied as suggested by the CT Scan Brain (Plain and Contrast) from 2007 to 2009, at Gandhi Medical College, Hyderabad, India. It was most common in second and third decade of life. The most common clinical presentation was convulsions. Routine investigations did not yield the diagnosis of tuberculosis. All patients(More)
Various risk factors have been implicated in causation of stroke but hypertension remains the single most important treatable risk factor in all age groups, and it is the one which seems to have a direct relation to incidence. Furthermore antihypertensive therapy has been observed to be effective in reducing the incidence of CVD (cerebrovascular disease).(More)
Catastrophic antiphospholipid syndrome (CAPS) is a rare, potentially life-threatening condition, acute in onset , characterized by diffuse vascular thrombosis, leading to multiple organ failure in a short period of time in the presence of positive antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL). Lupus anticoagulant and anticardiolipin antibodies are the predominant(More)
BACKGROUND A significant proportion of patients starting dialysis do so with a temporary or tunnelled haemodialysis catheter. Insertion of these catheters can be achieved either by using the anatomical landmarks for the veins into which they are inserted or using ultrasound guidance. It has been suggested that the use of ultrasound guidance reduces the(More)
The clinical study of cerebral venous thrombosis in antiphospholipid antibody syndrome in young females at peripartum was done to study the incidence of antiphospholipid antibodies in highly susceptible population groups most commonly at peripartum women. The presence of these antibodies points towards increased susceptibility to thrombosis and ischemic(More)
BACKGROUND The pathogenesis and natural history of HIV-associated immune complex kidney disease (HIVICK) is not well understood. Key questions remain unanswered, including the role of HIV infection and replication in disease development and the efficacy of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in the prevention and treatment of disease.

Endemic fluorosis leads to dental fluorosis, skeletal fluorosis and visceral fluorosis. This case described about the crippling skeletal fluorosis with neurological manifestations in the form of myelopathy, due to exposure to high fluoride level in water for many years. The complications of fluoride deposition in bones resulted in generalised sclerosis,(More)
BACKGROUND Insertion of percutaneous hemodialysis catheters is an invasive procedure with a small but definite risk of morbidity and mortality. OBJECTIVES Assessing potential benefits of using real-time 2-dimensional Doppler ultrasound imaging guidance for the insertion of hemodialysis catheters compared with insertion based solely on anatomic landmarks.(More)
Organophosphorus (OP) compounds constitute a heterogeneous category of chemicals specifically designed for the control of pests, weeds or plant diseases. Our review article mainly focused on OP poisoning, especially with pesticides, its severity and management of toxic exposure. We developed a search strategy to find publications about OP poisoning and its(More)
