In this paper, we proposed an algorithm for load distribution of workloads among nodes of a cloud by the use of Ant Colony Optimization (ACO). This is a modified approach of ant colony optimization that has been applied from the perspective of cloud or grid network systems with the main aim of load balancing of nodes. This modified algorithm has an edge(More)
A 30-year-old woman presented with a 1-year history of a dull ache in her left flank along with recent onset of hypertension. There was no history suggestive of tuberculosis and examination was unremarkable. X-ray showed dense opacity in left renal area. Contrast-enhanced CT revealed a non-enhancing and non-excretory left kidney suggesting autonephrectomy.(More)
Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) of the breast is rare. Late and painful local recurrence of this entity on this site is even more uncommon. We describe such a case in a 102-year-old woman, who at the age of 77 years had been operated for a breast lump for which only a cytopathological diagnosis of fibrohistiocytic tumour was available. Twenty years(More)
A 31-year-old man presented with features of recurrent cholangitis for 7 months. Examination revealed icterus and a palpable 10×8 cm lump in the right hypochondrium extending into the epigastrium. Total and direct bilirubin was raised (8.4, 6.7 mg/dL). Alkaline phosphatase (468 U/L) was raised but other liver enzymes were normal. Ultrasound of the abdomen(More)
Tuberculosis is an endemic disease of worldwide concern. The most common involvement is in the form of pulmonary tuberculosis. Musculoskeletal system is involved in 20-30% of cases of extrapulmonary tuberculosis. Among these cases of musculoskeletal tuberculosis, vertebral column is most commonly involved followed by long bones. However, tuberculosis of(More)
BACKGROUND To describe the clinical features and outcomes of patients diagnosed with ceftazidime-resistant Gram-negative endophthalmitis and the role of intravitreal imipenem in these cases.

A young woman was referred to us for the management of an umbilical hernia with macerated overlying skin through which massive ascites was leaking. On examination we found a jelly-like substance seeping out of the opening. A contrast-enhanced CT scan of the abdomen revealed bilateral ovarian cystadenocarcinoma with pseudomyxoma peritonei. The patient(More)
INTRODUCTION Obesity is a well-established risk factor for cholelithiasis. But most of the studies have actually tried to establish the risk of cholelithiasis in overweight and obese people. Very few studies have addressed the issue of cholelithiasis in patients with otherwise normal Body Mass Index (BMI). In this study we have tried to establish if there(More)
