Imaging features of central nervous system fungal infections.
Although almost any fungus may cause encephalitis, cryptococcal meningoencephalitis is most frequently seen, followed by aspergillosis and candidiasis and the biology, epidemiology and imaging features of the common fungal infections of the CNS will be reviewed. Expand
Frequency of lactose malabsorption among healthy southern and northern Indian populations by genetic analysis and lactose hydrogen breath and tolerance tests.
The frequency and degree of LM is higher in southern than in northern Indian healthy populations because of genetic differences in these populations. Expand
Dose adjustment of allopurinol according to creatinine clearance does not provide adequate control of hyperuricemia in patients with gout.
Adherence to published allopurinol dosing guidelines led to suboptimal control of hyperuricemia in this population of patients with gout, and further work is required to clarify the safety and efficacy of allopURinol dose escalation, particularly in patients with renal impairment. Expand
MR angiography in tuberculous meningitis
Half the patients with TBM had MRA abnormality involving both anterior and posterior circulations and 61.8% of them had corresponding infarcts, which was correlated with clinical, laboratory, and MRI findings. Expand

The high burden of death and disease due to air pollution and its associated substantial adverse economic impact from loss of output could impede India's aspiration to be a $5 trillion economy by 2024. Expand
Correlative MR imaging and histopathology in porcine neurocysticercosis
To examine whether all the histopathologically seen features of cysticercus cysts excised from brain of swine naturally infected with neurocysticercosis during its evolution are actually visible onExpand
Central nervous system tuberculosis.
This article reviews the various forms of CNS tuberculosis, including its complications and imaging features, including magnetization transfer imaging, proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy, diffusion, and perfusion imaging. Expand
Abdominal fat distribution and insulin resistance in Indian women with polycystic ovarian syndrome.
The relationship between insulin resistance and abdominal fat distribution was studied in Indian patients with PCOS and subcutaneous fat was the best marker of insulin resistance. Expand
Phosphodiesterase 4 D Gene Polymorphism in Relation to Intracranial and Extracranial Atherosclerosis in Ischemic Stroke
In ischemic stroke, extracranial MR angiography (ECMRA) is more frequently abnormal in Caucasians and intracranial (ICMRA) in Asians which may have a genetic basis. We report phosphodiesteraseExpand
Diffusion-Weighted MR Imaging in Japanese Encephalitis
DWI was helpful in making early diagnosis of JE by showing characteristic involvement of bilateral thalami in four patients and there was a significant direct correlation of ADC values with the disease duration in these cases. Expand
