Pott's puffy tumor, a feature of osteomyelitis of the frontal bone, is a rare entity, especially in adults. Sir Percival Pott originally described this condition as a complication of trauma to the frontal bone. This is also a recognized complication of fronto-ethmoidal sinusitis. We present a rare case of Pott's puffy tumor caused by an insect bite(More)
AIMS A study was undertaken to determine and compare the F-actin staining patterns in the cells of the lamina cribrosa (LC) of normal, dexamethasone (DEX)-treated and glaucomatous dissected tissue and cell cultures. METHODS About 30 dissected donor eyes and nine cell lines provided the human specimens; 25 eyes and 20 primary cell cultures provided the(More)
In this year's WMT translation task, Finnish-English was introduced as a language pair of competition for the first time. We present experiments examining several variations on a morphologically-aware statistical phrase-based machine translation system for translating Finnish into English. Our system variations attempt to mitigate the issue of rich(More)
Necrotising fasciitis (NF) is an extremely rare skin and soft tissue infection with extensive necrosis of the subcutaneous tissue and underlying fascia, which usually affects the limbs and trunk. It rarely affects the head and neck region because of the excellent blood supply in this region. We report a case of NF initially misdiagnosed as a traumatic(More)

The right fundus showed an inferotemporal choroidal melanoma extending to the fovea. On ultrasonography, the tumour measured approximately 15 · 14 mm(More)
—Applications of body sensor networks (BSN) in health-care are growing rapidly. The number of implanted sensors used to accurately prognose and diagnose the medical-conditions are increasing. The implanted medical devices (IMD), for example pacemakers are improvised for delivering patient-centric therapies. These IMD require continuous pathological(More)
Latanoprost has increasingly become the first choice in topical anti-glaucoma therapy. Local adverse events like hypertrichosis and increased iris pigmentation are common whereas systemic adverse events have been rare and mild in intensity. The authors would like to report a case of transient urge incontinence after initiation of latanoprost therapy(More)
We report a case of an occipital arachnoid cyst in an infant, managed on the basis of changes in visually evoked potentials (VEPs). A significant asymmetry of VEP responses prompted neurosurgical intervention, which improved visual behavior and electrical response to both pattern and flash stimuli.
