PURPOSE We undertook this study to determine the accuracy of MR cisternography and plain high-resolution CT as a noninvasive alternative to CT cisternography in the diagnosis of CSF fistula in patients with clinically suspected CSF rhinorrhea. METHODS Forty-five consecutive patients with clinically suspected CSF rhinorrhea were examined prospectively for(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The sphenoid sinus is rarely implicated as a site of spontaneous CSF fistula. We undertook this study to evaluate the potential etiopathogenesis of spontaneous CSF fistula involving the sphenoid sinus and to review the imaging findings. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the imaging findings of 145 cases of CSF fistula from our(More)
We describe three patients with bilateral cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) otorhinorrhea with unilateral progressive hearing loss in whom CT showed the defect to be located in the lamina cribrosa of the internal auditory canal. CT cisternography showed the CSF fistula in two of the three patients who had Mondini malformation, whereas the CSF fistula was obvious on(More)
BACKGROUND Uncomplicated skin and skin structure infections (uSSSI) are commonly encountered community-acquired infections and are typically confined to the superficial layers of the skin. Hence, they seldom lead to the destruction of skin structures. AIMS To evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of cefditoren pivoxil in uSSSI in Indian patients. (More)
Objective: To evaluate the antidepressant activity of methanolic extract of leaves of Acorus calamus in experimentally induced antidepressant animal models. Methods: Albino mice were divided into 8 groups of 6 mice each. Forced swimming (FST) and Tail suspension tests (TST) were the animal models used to evaluate antidepressant activity. 4 groups were(More)
