It is important to understand the physicochemical mechanisms that are responsible for the morphological changes in the cell membrane in the presence of various stimuli such as osmotic pressure. Lipid rafts are believed to play a crucial role in various cellular processes. It is well established that Ctb (Cholera toxin B subunit) recognizes and binds to GM1(More)

The early recognition of this variant is important as it is associated with a high recurrence rate & mortality. We present a case of a 27 year old female who presented with a swelling in the right infra-auricular region.(More)
Schwannomas of the nasal cavity are rare benign tumors, and those that arise from the nasal septum are even rarer. When they do occur, they usually become symptomatic early because of the close confines of the nasal cavity. We describe a case of nasal septal schwannoma that was noteworthy in that the patient-a 28-year-old woman-waited 8 months after the(More)
Meningiomas at extracranial sites are uncommon clinical presentations. They may present in the form of benign, slow.growing masses or may exhibit aggressive malignant behavior.
