Circulating thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) concentrations in rats were determined after various periods of lithium administration in diet. No significant change in serum T4 and T3 levels was observed after ten days of lithium treatment. However, lithium treatment for one month, two months and four months showed a significant decrease in serum T4(More)
Solitary or multiple supratentorial haemangioblastomas are rare and may be associated with Von Hippel Lindau complex (VHLC), polycythaemia or a family history of VHLC. An extensive review of the literature (1902-1992) has revealed 112 cases. They account for 2-8% of all haemangioblastomas and are commonly intraparenchymatous (86.8%) and infrequently(More)
Spinal extradural lipomatosis is rare and is usually associated with long-term steroid administration or obesity. It is most commonly thoracic in situation. We present a unique case of spinal extradural lipomatosis in a 20-year-old non-obese, clinically normal man. The role of MRI in investigation and the management options are discussed.
Symptomatic spinal extradural arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are uncommon. They usually present with slowly progressive myelopathy and/or radiculopathy and only rarely with spinal extradural hemorrhage (SEH). Histopathologic features of a true spinal extradural AVM causing an overt SEH have only previously been described in four cases. A further case of(More)
Circulating thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) concentrations in rhesus monkeys were determined after various periods of cadmium administration in diet. No significant change in serum T4 and T3 levels was observed after 2 months of cadmium treatment. However, cadmium treatment for 4 months and 6 months showed a significant decrease in serum T4 and T3(More)
The long-term effect of lithium treatment on the digestive and absorptive function has been investigated in male albino rats. The uptake of D-glucose, amino acids and activities of cellular and brush border enzymes were evaluated after every 3 months. Significantly increased uptake was observed in 6-month lithium-treated rats. The absorptive capacity (Vmax)(More)

No significant change occurred in the uptake by the thyroid of male Wistar rats of a standard dose of carrier-free 131I administered intraperitoneally and its retention by the thyroid, as measured by biological and effective half-life, after feeding these rats a powdered pelleted diet containing lithium carbonate (1.1 g per kg of diet) for 7 days. However,(More)
Psychiatric disorders have been commonly recognized to be associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) during the course of the illness or as a result of the side effects of the drugs used for its management. There have been reports of MS patirents, presenting initially with pure psychiatric symptoms. Amongst these, atypical psychosis has been infrequently(More)
Bismuth iodoform paraffin paste (BIPP) is used in dressings in ear, nose, and throat, dental, and neurosurgical practice. Neurotoxicity due to absorption of bismuth from the BIPP pack is rare. It is preventable and reversible but likely to be fatal if unrecognised. A case of relapsing but reversible toxic encephalopathy due to a large extradural BIPP pack(More)
