BACKGROUND The diagnosis of osteoarticular tuberculosis is clinico-radiological in endemic areas. However every patient does not have the classical picture. Osteoarticular tuberculosis is a paucibacillary disease hence bacteriological diagnosis is possible in 10-30% of the cases. The present study is undertaken to correlate clinico-radiological,(More)
Abnormal uterine bleeding in the postabortal period requires meticulous diagnostic work-up to decide proper management. Imaging modalities including Doppler sonography and magnetic resonance imaging in concert with clinical and laboratory findings are useful to narrow the differential diagnoses but are not definitive. Presence of increased uterine(More)
To study the mechanism of action of water soluble compound GII purified from fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum) seeds which was shown earlier to have antidiabetic effect in the subdiabetic, moderately and severely diabetic rabbits. In rabbits (1–1.5 kg bw) diabetes was induced by intravenous injection of 80 mg/kg bw of alloxan. They were fed with GII at(More)
A 25-yr-old female presented with a slowly progressive swelling, occurring over an 8-yr period, in the right lower leg. The swelling was tender and fixed to the underlying bone. Clinical and radiological diagnosis was giant cell tumor (GCT) of the bone. Aspiration cytology smears were cellular showing an admixture of chondroid, stellate, and fibrocytic(More)
The hypoglycaemic and hypolipidemic effect of ethanolic extract obtained from seeds of E. jambolana was investigated in alloxan-induced diabetic rabbits. Hypoglycaemic activity was assessed by reduction in fasting blood glucose (FBG) at 90min and also fall in peak blood glucose during glucose tolerance test (GTT) in sub-diabetic and mild diabetic (MD)(More)
Membranous nephropathy associated with placental site trophoblastic tumour: a case report Gestational trophoblastic disease is rarely associated with nephrotic syndrome. The most common renal complication in pregnant females is pre-eclamptic hypertensive nephropathy. Most cases have not been biopsied and thus the specific nature of renal involvement could(More)
We studied 51 patients with osteo-articular tuberculosis who were divided into two groups. Group I comprised 31 newly-diagnosed patients who were given first-line antituberculous treatment consisting of isoniazid, rifampicin, ethambutol and pyrazinamide. Group II (non-responders) consisted of 20 patients with a history of clinical non-responsiveness to(More)
The cytologic features of malignant ameloblastoma, a rare tumor of the jaw, are described. Fine needle aspiration smears showed high cellularity, with small basaloid and polygonal epithelial cells with mild to moderate pleomorphism lying singly or in clusters. In Giemsa-stained smears, pinkish stroma with stellate cells or irregularly shaped nuclei and(More)
OBJECTIVE To study local response to BCG vaccination in twin babies and find out the effect of zygosity andchorionicity on BCG uptake. DESIGN Analytical observational study. SETTING Tertiary hospital. METHODS Twin pairs born in the hospital were evaluated for zygosity and chorionicity. BCG vaccination was given within 48 hours of birth to babies >/=33(More)
A lipoblastoma, an uncommon tumor of childhood that can be mistaken for a liposarcoma, was preoperatively diagnosed by fine needle aspiration cytology. The characteristic features on the cytologic smears were the presence of immature fat cells in the form of spindle-shaped cells, stellate cells and vacuolated lipoblasts along with lipocytes. The cytologic(More)
