We report two children with Amyand's hernia, where the appendices along with caecum were found within the left hernial sac, which were operated for obstructed inguinal hernia.
Introduction: Granulomatous mastitis is a rare benign disease, the exact cause of which is still unknown. It usually presents as a mass which may simulate carcinoma. Many patients are put on long term antibiotics because of breast abscess suspicion, but are not cured. This disease usually affects women of child-bearing age with a history of oral… (More)
Cutaneous angiomyolipomas are rare. We report a case in a 45-year-old male with a well circumscribed lesion located on the chin. This lesion, probably hamartomatous in nature, differs from renal angiomyolipoma in terms of nonassociation with tuberous sclerosis, circumscription, and male predominance. Another characteristic feature is the absence of… (More)
Primary spinal hydatid cyst is very rare lesion affecting less than 1% of the total cases of the hydatid disease. In this study, we report a case of spinal hydatid in a 5-year old boy presented with a history of backache, leg pain, difficulty in walking, and bowel and bladder incontinence for 4 months. An intradural nonenhancing cystic lesion was detected… (More)
A 12-year-old male child presented with left submandibular lymphadenopathy; excision biopsy revealed noncaseating granuloma with numerous Schaumann bodies in histopathology, suggestive of isolated extrathoracic sarcoidosis, which is an extremely rare entity in the pediatric age group.
Hydrocephalus of tubercular origin is one of the most dreaded and difficult to manage complications of brain tuberculosis. Traditionally, the management has been ventriculoperitoneal shunting, but in recent years emerging interest is in endoscopic ventriculostomy. In this article, we discuss the management protocol of hydrocephalus in various stages of… (More)
Pheochromocytoma is a rare cause of hypertension. Usually the tumour arises in the adrenal and the only cure is surgical extirpation. Laparoscopic adrenalectomy is the gold standard. Traditionally, laparoscopic removal of adrenal tumour of more than 5-6 cm in size is contraindicated. The authors removed a 11×8 cm phaeochromocytoma by laparoscopic approach… (More)
India, an agriculture-based country, relies heavily on indigenous farm machinery. In our study we present 31 patients with winnowing fan blade head injury, operated on at our centre between 2004 and 2008. The mechanism and nature of the injuries, operative methods, outcome and methods of prevention are discussed with special reference to the occurrence of… (More)
OBJECTIVE Neurotrauma has been labelled as a "silent epidemic" affecting both the developed and the developing nations. To date, no single brain-specific biomarker has been unanimously accepted for routine clinical use in TBI. Our study aims to determine the correlation of "cleaved-tau protein" in severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) with Glasgow Coma Scale… (More)
Despite the advent of modern neurosurgical techniques, new antibiotics, and new powerful imaging technologies, brain abscess remains a potentially fatal central nervous system infection.1 A brain abscess is a focal, intracerebral infection that begins as a localized area of cerebritis and develops into a collection of pus surrounded by a wellvascularized… (More)
