OBJECTIVE To compare antenatal sonography and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis of fetal head and trunk anomalies. METHODS Forty pregnant women with fetal anomalies on ultrasound (US) examination underwent MRI. The MR examination was done by a radiologist who was provided with the US data. The MR images were then read by one of the(More)
The effects of brief spells of cold conditioning on heat acclimatized tropical subjects on the decay and reacclimatization status to heat were evaluated on 12 Indian male infantry soldiers in the cooler months at Delhi. After 8 d of heat acclimatization in a climatic chamber maintained at 45 degrees C dry bulb (Tdb) and 30% relative humidity (rh), the(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Subtelomeres are prone to deleterious rearrangements owing to their proximity to unique sequences on the one end and telomeric repetitive sequences, which increase their tendency to recombine, on the other end. These subtelomeric rearrangements resulting in segmental aneusomy are reported to contribute to the aetiology of idiopathic(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the possible role of Magnetic Resonance (MR) signal intensity measurements in diagnosing Central Nervous System (CNS) anomalies antenatally. METHODS MR images of 110 fetal brains between 18 and 38 weeks were studied. Nine were excluded due to destroyed brain. 50 had CNS anomalies. 51 had normal CNS and were used as controls. Regions(More)
Congenital infiltrating lipomatosis of the face is a rare condition characterized by diffuse fatty infiltration of the facial soft tissues. There may be muscle involvement along with associated bony hyperplasia. It is a type of lipomatous tumor that is congenital in origin; it is rare and seen usually in childhood. We recently saw an 11-year-old girl with(More)
Applicability of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay to detect Pasteurella multocida in experimentally infected embryonated chicken egg was assessed in the present study. PCR assay rapidly and specifically detected the genome of P. multocida in amniotic fluid, allantoic fluid and homogenates of infected embryo and its membranes. The sensitivity of(More)
Avian strains of Pasteurella multocida were typed by employing restriction endonuclease analysis (REA) and single enzyme-amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) to evaluate their applicability for epidemiological studies of fowl cholera outbreaks. A total of 72 strains isolated from different avian species (chicken, duck, turkey, quail and goose)(More)
