Cardiac rhythm abnormalities, including ventricular arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation and atrioventricular block, have been observed during the acute stage of dengue haemorrhagic fever. Atrioventricular or complete heart block can be fatal and may require a temporary pacemaker. We report a ten-year-old girl who presented with dengue haemorrhagic fever with(More)
A young adult presenting with 11 months history of fever, headache, vomiting was found to have CSF lymphocytic pleocytosis with increased protein. His serum tested strongly positive for Brucella (standard tube agglutination titre 1: 320) whereas CSF was weakly positive. He became asymptomatic on treatment with tetracycline, rifampicin and streptomycin with(More)
This study was undertaken to evaluate the motor dysfunction on the nonhemiplegic side in patients with acute intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) and correlate these with radiological and motor evoked potentials findings. 28 patients (23 males, 5 females), with CT proven ICH within 10 days of ictus were subjected to clinical evaluation and central motor(More)
BACKGROUND Extra-pituitary birth defect (EPBD) in children with congenital hypopituitarism is largely unknown. OBJECTIVE The study aims to evaluate the incidence and pattern of EPBD in children with congenital hypopituitarism and to evaluate whether it can serve as a clue to diagnose this condition. PATIENTS AND METHODS Retrospective analysis of(More)
This report describes the radiological features of a case of Cronkhite-Canada syndrome. Barium meal follow through with pneumocolon, used as a single radiological test, revealed diffuse polyposis involving the stomach and both the small and large intestines, as well as findings of gastric rugal thickening, whiskering, crypts and ulcerated polyps.
The effectiveness and short-term safety of recombinant human GH (r-hGH) in acromegaly patients with GH deficiency (GHD) after treatment are not well established. The study includes ten subjects with acromegaly who had GHD treated with r-hGH for 6 months. Control groups consisted of ten age-, gender-, and BMI-matched healthy subjects and ten active(More)
BACKGROUND Angiogenesis and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) are recently being implicated in animal and clinical models of radiation-induced optic nerve-retinal and brain necrosis. Though there are isolated case reports of anti-VEGF therapy (Bevacizumab) as a treatment modality in the management of radiation induced brain necrosis, there is(More)
CONTEXT Disorders of the prostate gland are more prevalent in patients with acromegaly. GH-insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1) axis plays an additive role in prostatic growth and development. OBJECTIVE To correlate the structural and histopathological changes of the prostate and prostatic symptoms with GH/IGF1 in patients with acromegaly. DESIGN(More)
BACKGROUND Growth hormone (GH) levels following oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) at 12 weeks or later after surgery have been accepted as the most reliable parameter for defining remission and/or cure in patients with acromegaly. However, the role of random GH in predicting remission in the immediate postoperative period using modern criteria is not(More)
