CONTEXT Light chain immunofluoresence (IF) in renal biopsy is routinely used in the diagnosis of light chain deposition disease (LCDD), amyloidosis and cast nephropathy. Light chain predominance has also been reported in certain glomerulopathies like IgA nephropathy. However, pathogenesis of this pattern of deposition in various glomerulopathies is(More)
Cutaneous disorders can precede or follow the initiation of hemodialysis treatment. We evaluated the prevalence of various dermatological manifestations in patients undergoing hemodialysis at least twice a week for minimum of three months at our center. Patients were excluded if they were undergoing hemodialysis less than twice a week or on hemodialysis(More)
Tuberculous involvement of the genitourinary tract is well reported in the literature. However, reports of glomerular lesions of the kidney due to tuberculosis are rare. Tuberculosis has been identified as the most common infectious cause of granulomatous interstitial nephritis (GIN). We report a 23-year-old female patient with a membranous nephropathy and(More)
INTRODUCTION Presentation of the ischemic stroke due to vasoactive intestinal peptide producing tumor (VIPoma) or Verner Morrison syndrome is rare. This is first of its kind case which we are reporting here which was later turned out to be multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1) syndrome with diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism in the same patient(More)
We propose an approach for decomposing Boolean satisfiability problems while extending recent results of [12] on solving Boolean systems of equations. Developments in [12] were aimed at the expansion of functions f in orthonormal (ON) sets of base functions as a generalization of the Boole-Shannon expansion and the derivation of the consistency condition(More)
BACKGROUND A 27-year-old male renal allograft recipient presented to hospital with isolated skin ulcers on both lower limbs. At presentation, he also had a low-grade continuous fever, malaise and anorexia. INVESTIGATIONS Physical examination, laboratory studies, histopathological examination of tissue biopsy samples from the ulcer edges and ulcer floor,(More)
Given a CNF formula F , we present a new algorithm for deciding the satisfiability (SAT) of F and computing all solutions of assignments. The algorithm is based on the concept of cofactors known in the literature. This paper is a fallout of the previous work by authors on Boolean satisfiability [11, 12, 13], however the algorithm is essentially independent(More)
Cholesterol crystal embolization (CCE) is an important and often under-diagnosed cause of renal insufficiency in patients with atherosclerosis. So far, only statins are the mainstay of therapy and the role of corticosteroids is controversial. We describe a 57-year-old gentleman who presented with accelerated hypertension and renal failure three months after(More)
