OBJECTIVE To study the different types of radiological presentations of ABPA in a tertiary clinic in Northern India and analyze them with respect to serological profile and clinical characteristics. METHODS We performed a retrospective analysis of clinical, serological and radiological characteristics of ABPA patients registered at a unit of tertiary(More)
BACKGROUND Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatous disease of unknown origin most commonly involving the lungs. Sarcoidosis is frequently misdiagnosed due to its clinico-radiological resemblance to tuberculosis (TB). Hence, the present study was undertaken with the aim of studying the clinico-radiological profile of sarcoidosis in the Indian context. (More)
The aim of the study was to determine the contemporary socio-clinical profile and perinatal outcome of illicit substance use in pregnancy in a large UK city and compare with published literature. Cases were identified retrospectively from the ‘cause for concern’ referrals over 5 years (2003–2007). Data was collected on mother–infant pair from medical notes(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies elsewhere have shown higher serum immunoglobulin E (IgE) levels in smokers and an association between smoking and sensitisation to allergens. Such information is not available for Indian population. Hence, the present study was carried out to evaluate the effect of smoking on atopic predisposition and sensitisation to(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic surgeries have attained the status of a gold standard for most of the abdominal pathology; we therefore performed this study to assess feasibility and safety of major laparoscopic surgeries like laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) and laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy (LAVH)/total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) under regional(More)
Though the Müllerian duct anomalies are rare in incidence, their variable age, and mode of presentation makes their management difficult. In the last 10 years authors managed 14 patients with different types of Müllerian anomalies. There were eight patients with complete Müllerian agenesis: three of partial Müllerian agenesis, one patient had uterine(More)
BACKGROUND Extravasation injury is a common complication of neonatal intensive care and can result in scarring with cosmetic and functional sequelae. A wide variety of treatments are used in practice including subcutaneous irrigation with saline (with or without hyaluronidase), liposuction, use of specific antidotes, different topical applications and(More)

Blue Brain is the name of the world's first virtual brain. A Virtual machine is one that can function as, a very appropriate application of an Artificial Intelligence human brain. Reverse engineering is a foremost concept of implementing the human brain and recreate it at the cellular level inside a complete simulation. The four major motivations behind the(More)
OBJECTIVE Exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) and nasal nitric oxide (n NO) measurement is an area of ongoing research in the study of airway inflammation. The atopic status is known to influence the levels of FENO and n NO. This study was undertaken to study the relationship between nitric oxide measurements in bronchial asthma and allergic rhinitis along with(More)
