Plasmodium vivax is causing increasingly more cases of severe malaria worldwide. There is an urgent need to reexamine the clinical spectrum and burden of P. vivax so that adequate control measures can be implemented against this emerging but neglected disease. Herein, we report a case of renal acute cortical necrosis and acute kidney injury (AKI) associated(More)
Nocardiosis is a rare opportunistic infection, especially seen in immunocompromised patients, including renal allograft recipients. Primary pulmonary infection is the most common clinical pattern and can easily result in disseminated Nocardia infection if treatment therapy is not adequate at the beginning. We report a case of pulmonary nocardiosis(More)
Sirenomelia, or mermaid syndrome, is the extreme form of caudal regression syndrome. We present another case of this fascinating anomaly with fused lower limbs, absent external genitalia, and absent genitourinary system. The patient could not be salvaged because of bilateral renal agenesis. Detailed autopsy findings and a review of the literature are(More)
Joint replacement is now established as a reliable orthopaedic procedure for the relief of many painful degenerative conditions of the hip. When successful it enhances hip movement and relieves pain with a concomitant improvement in function and well being for the patient. When unsuccessful the persistence of pain usually signifies loosening or infection.(More)
Plasmodium vivax infection is increasingly a major public health burden and the second most frequent human malaria. Higher levels of clinical severity and chloroquine resistance are major factors responsible for such increases. Malarial glomerular injury is uncommon and mainly observed in Plasmodium malariae-infected patients. Occasionally, transient immune(More)
Tacrolimus, a calcineurin inhibitor, is a potent immunosuppressive agent used by a majority of transplanters across the globe. Its adverse effects include nephrotoxicity, neurotoxicity, new onset diabetes after transplant, gastro-intestinal toxicity, hepatotoxicity, and thrombotic microangiopathy. Tacrolimus-induced hepatotoxicity is a very uncommon side(More)
Economic constraints in operating an effective maintenance dialysis program leaves renal transplantation as the only viable option for end-stage renal disease patients in India. Kidney paired donation (KPD) is a rapidly growing modality for facilitating living donor (LD) transplantation for patients who are incompatible with their healthy, willing LD. The(More)
We read with great interest the report by Pahwa et al. [1]. The authors reported an interesting experience on kidney paired donation (KPD) in India. We believe that with some additions, as mentioned below, scientific value and contribution of the article may increase for wider implementation of KPD in our country. The preformed Human Leukocyte Antigen(More)
