Renal involvement in paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is usually clinically not apparent but, in cases with clinical involvement, varies from reversible acute dysfunction to chronic irreversible damage. We report two cases of acute kidney injury and one case of chronic kidney disease due to PNH. In all three cases a diagnosis of PNH was made after(More)

Pain during areteriovenous fistula (AVF) cannulation remains a common problem in hemodialysis (HD) patients. This study was undertaken to assess the effect of cryotherapy on pain due to arteriovenous fistula puncture in hemodialysis patients. A convenience sample of 60 patients (30 each in experimental and control groups) who were undergoing hemodialysis by(More)
Fibrillary Glomerulonephritis (FGN) is a rare clinical entity presenting in majority of patients with nephrotic range proteinuria, microscopic hematuria, impaired renal function and hypertension. The mean age of presentation is reported to be beyond 50 years with 50 patients developing end stage renal disease within a few years. A 28-year-old female(More)
BACKGROUND Accurate measurement of renal function is important for the diagnosis, stratification and management of kidney disease. As the use of recommended filtration markers is limited by cumbersome and costly techniques, renal function is typically estimated by using various specifically derived prediction equations. Most of these equations have been(More)
AIM Oxidative stress (OS) and endothelial dysfunction are implicated in accelerated atherosclerosis in chronic kidney disease (CKD). We assessed endothelial function, OS, and carotid intimal medial thickness (CIMT) and their correlates in 44 CKD stage 5 patients (group III) before and after hemodialysis (HD), 40 patients of CKD stages 3 and 4 (group II),(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare audio and audiovisual distraction aids in management of anxious pediatric dental patients of different age groups and to study children's response to sequential dental visits with the use of distraction aids.

This overview introduces and summarizes the findings of a practical volume on managing volatility and crises. The interest in these topics stems from the growing recognition that non-linearities tend to magnify the impact of economic volatility, leading to large output and economic growth costs, especially in poor countries. In these circumstances, good(More)
Renal transplant recipients are prone to a variety of infections due a persistent immunodepleted state. Incidence of tuberculosis in this population is much higher compared with the general population. While pulmonary tuberculosis still remains the commonest form in this population, renal allograft tuberculosis is very rare. We report two cases of isolated(More)
We present a renal allograft recipient 16 months posttransplant with an unusual infectious complication. This gentleman was antihepatitis C virus pretransplant, had a live unrelated transplant, and was taking cyclosporine, mycophenolate mofetil, and prednisolone. He developed diabetes and left scrotal abscess 3 months posttransplant and underwent left(More)
