PURPOSE Haematogenous multifocal osteomyelitis in children represents a dangerous form of osteomyelitis in which sepsis can develop quickly if it is not treated early. A retrospective analysis of 26 children with acute multifocal haematogenous osteomyelitis over a period of 5 years was undertaken in order to assess the clinical presentation, infective(More)
We report on 2 patients with congenital insensitivity to pain and anhydrosis. The first one was a 7-month-old boy who presented with non-traumatic, haematogenous septic dislocation of the right elbow with physeal separation of the distal humerus. The second one was a 3-year-old girl suspected to have Job syndrome with an altered immunological profile.
Ipsilateral elbow and wrist injuries are uncommon in children. We present a case of Bado type III Monteggia fracture dislocation with ipsilateral Salter Harris type I epiphyseal injury of distal radius in a 10-year-old boy. A good result was achieved with early closed reduction and percutaneous K wire fixation. This case emphasizes that whenever a fracture(More)
We report a case of synchronous symmetrical osteoid osteoma of tibia which was atypical in its appearance on imaging. Our patient was a 30-year-old woman presented with 2 years history of bilateral leg pain more on the right side. The pain was more during night and relieved on taking salicylates. Laboratory investigations were within normal limits.(More)
To evaluate the factors associated with acute hematogenous septic arthritis of the knee in adults and to assess the outcome after open knee arthrotomy. We performed a prospective evaluation of 26 adult patients with acute nongonococcal septic arthritis of the knee presenting within 7 days. All patients underwent open knee arthrotomy, and final evaluation by(More)
Scapula is an uncommon site for osteochondroma. There is a paucity of information regarding postoperative complications, recurrence of osteochondroma, functional improvement. A retrospective analysis of 9 patients treated for osteochondroma scapula over a period of 4 years was undertaken to assess postoperative complications, recurrence, and functional(More)
BACKGROUND The cause of congenital talipes equinovarus (CTEV) is multifactorial and, consanguinity could be one of the causative factors in its development. The purpose of this study was, to determine the prevalence of parental consanguinity in CTEV and other factors like associated, congenital anomalies, maternal and fetal factors and also the severity of(More)
The study was conducted to evaluate clinical and microbiological profile of neonates with septic arthritis and also to assess changing epidemiology in the microbial etiology. Twenty-nine neonates (1–28 days of life) presenting to the Department of Orthopaedics with acute septic arthritis were included in the study. This was a descriptive study, and the data(More)
Dear Editor, We congratulate Kaya Memisoglu et al. for their excellent paper entiteled “Does the technique of lateral cross-wiring (Dorgan’s technique) reduce iatrogenic ulnar nerve injury?” [1]. The preferred method of fixation of supracondylar fractures in humerus is still controversial. In this article we noticed that in the X-rays in figures 1 and 2,(More)
