The problem of labeling the edges present in a single color image as convex, concave, and occluding entities is one of the fundamental problems in computer vision [4]. It has been shown that this information can contribute to segmentation, reconstruction and recognition problems. Recently, it has been shown that this classification is not straightforward(More)

Twenty cases suffering from rhinoscleroma were studied. Bronchoscopy was performed for detection of secondary involvement of the subglottic region, trachea and bronchus. The study revealed that the larynx was involved in 40 per cent, the trachea in 20 per cent and the bronchus in 10 per cent of cases. The intranasal lesion, endotracheal and endobroncheal(More)
The sense of taste was assessed in a group of 30 leprosy patients. The method used and the results are presented. Twelve patients (40 per cent) showed some degree of impairment of taste sensation and this was shown to be related to the severity of the disease. The possible reasons for the loss of taste are discussed.
Twenty diarrhoeal isolates identified as Esch. coli O157 were screened for cytopathic activity on the continuous Vero cell line. Of these, seven strains (35%) showed cytopathic effect which was maximum on the 4th day after inoculation, with a maximum titre of 1 in 128. The total loss of cytopathic activity was observed in the positive filtrates subjected to(More)
Forty-four leprosy patients with epistaxis were analysed. Aetiopathogenesis of epistaxis in leprosy is discussed in the light of available literature. It has been suggested that epistaxis is more frequent and severe in leprosy patients and more liable to have complications. Epistaxis in leprosy with nasal lesions may alarm the physician that patient has(More)

Ten patients with lepromatous leprosy have been studied to detect intranasal pathology by conventional naked eye rhinoscopy and also by use of the surgical microscope. The comparison of both methods reveals that microscopic rhinoscopy is superior in providing more accurate details of intranasal lesions in leprosy and biopsy can be taken in a precise manner(More)
