To study the prevalence of osteoporosis and vitamin D deficiency in healthy men and to explore the influence of various life style factors on bone mineral density (BMD) and also to look at number of subjects warranting treatment. Methods. Ambulatory south Indian men aged above 50 were recruited by cluster random sampling. The physical activity,(More)
The aims of the study were to redefine the criteria used to grade varicoceles, based on reflux times that correlate with Dubin and Amelar clinical grading by overcoming the limitations of clinical grading and to include the less known entity of intratesticular varicoceles in the grading. Prospective correlative study was undertaken at JSS Hospital, Mysore,(More)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Recently, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has published normative data for bone mineral density (BMD) measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scanning. However, the impact this has had on the diagnosis of osteoporosis when compared to currently used Caucasian databases has not been analysed. Hence, this(More)
Parathyroid carcinoma (PCA), accounting for less than one per cent of all endocrine malignancies, is a rare cause of primary hyperparathyroidism. A diagnosis of parathyroid carcinoma may be challenging in the presence of localised disease and involves a histological diagnosis based on capsular, vascular, or perineural invasion or the presence of metastasis.(More)

Clinically and biochemically, he had features of hypopituitarism. His prolactin(More)
Osteoporosis in elderly men is an under-recognized problem. In the current study, we intend to look at the performance of two risk assessment tools [OSTA and MORES] for the diagnosis of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis was seen in 1/4th of elderly men at spine and 1/6th of them at femoral neck. Both risk assessment tools were found to have good sensitivity in(More)
