An Ischemic Elegy Turned into Hemorrhagic Clamour - Cataract Surgery in Takayasu Arteritis
Ocular manifestations of Takayasu arteritis may be secondary to either ocular ischemia or are a complication of treatment of the disease with steroids. Cataract secondary to ocular ischemia is a lateExpand
Antibiotic Susceptibility Pattern of Uropathogens towards Nitrofurontoin & Nalidixic Acid: A Comparitive Study
The objective of the study is to assess the sensitivity pattern of commonly isolated uropathogens towards the drugs Nitrofurontoin and Nalidixic acid. Widespread and irrational use of antibiotics hasExpand
Bacteriological Profile and their Antibiotic Susceptibility Pattern in Neonatal Bacteremia
Neonatal Bacteremia is the presence of live bacteria circulating in the blood of neonates. The bloodstream infections are important cause of neonatal mortality and morbidity. This study was done toExpand
