Open neural tube defects (NTD) in babies, occurring over a 10 yr period (1982-91), in four major maternity hospitals of Lucknow, were identified to analyse the incidence of this disorder. The overall incidence of NTD was found to be 3.9/1000. It was significantly higher in the teaching hospital compared to non-teaching hospitals. But there was no(More)
BACKGROUND Neuroendocrine neoplasms of the gall bladder (GB) are rare tumors classified as grade 1 and 2 neuroendocrine tumor (NET), neuroendocrine carcinoma (large cell or small cell type), and mixed adeno-neuroendocrine carcinoma (MANEC). Primary neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC) of GB are rare with grave prognosis not withstanding radical surgical(More)
BACKGROUND The safety and efficacy of tacrolimus in transplantation are well established. However, tacrolimus (Pan Graf) has only been available in India for the last 2 years. We conducted this study to assess the safety and efficacy of tacrolimus in living related kidney transplantation. Herein we have reported our experience with tacrolimus as de novo(More)
The safety and efficacy of tacrolimus in transplantation is well established. However, tacrolimus has only recently been available in India. We report an initial experience using tacrolimus as de novo therapy in a living related renal transplant program. Fifty-two consecutive recipients of living renal allografts were treated with tacrolimus, mycophenolate(More)
Primary classical Hodgkin lymphomas of the gastrointestinal tract are rare lymphoproliferative neoplasms as against other well established mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomas. The primary nature of these cases is established based on chest radiograph, computed axial tomography, positron emission tomography, peripheral blood and bone marrow(More)
Calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC) is an uncommon developmental odontogenic cyst first described by Gorlin in 1962. It is considered as extremely rare and accounts for only 1% of jaw cysts reported. Because of its diverse histopathology, there has always been confusion about its nature as a cyst, neoplasm or hamartoma. Several subclassifications have been(More)
Transient complications of pregnancy (anemia, toxemia, proteinuria, arterial hypertension and hyperemesis) were studied in pregnant women from the general population reporting to local hospitals. Comparison of blood lead levels (PbB) was made between women with normal pregnancies and those with complications. Significantly higher PbB were found in women(More)
Fetiform teratoma (homunculus) is a rare but distinct entity, characterized by presence of more organoid differentiation than the classical teratoma but not enough to classify as fetus-in-fetu. Presence of rudimentary limbs in presence/absence of axial skeleton is often reported as an important differentiating feature. Sacrococcygeal location has been(More)
Grid is an emerging technology for enabling resource sharing and coordinated problem solving in dynamic multiinstitutional heterogeneous virtual organizations. However, the management of resources and computational tasks is a critical and complex undertaking as these resources and tasks are geographically distributed. A suitable and efficient scheduling(More)
