Xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis is a benign, uncommon variant of chronic cholecystitis characterised by focal or diffuse destructive inflammation of the gall bladder. The present study was undertaken to analyse the clinical presentation, pre-operative imaging, intra-operative findings and histological features of xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis and the(More)
BACKGROUND Perimenopause, also called the menopausal transition, is the interval in which a woman's body makes a natural shift from more-or-less regular cycles of ovulation and menstruation toward permanent infertility, or menopause. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective age specific comparative analysis of 219 perimenopausal women presenting with(More)
Renal leiomyomas are an extremely rare neoplasm which account for 1.5% of the benign lesions and 0.29% of all treated renal tumours, with autopsy evidence of 4.2% to 5.2%. Given their exceptional incidence, they are rarely included in the differential diagnosis of renal masses, despite their capacity to grow to a considerable size. The definitive diagnosis(More)
Glycation-induced high-density lipoprotein (HDL) modification by aldehydes can result in loss of its antiinflammatory/antioxidative properties, contributing to diabetes-associated cardiovascular diseases. Isoferulic acid, a major active ingredient of Cimicifuga heracleifolia, shows antiinflammatory, antiviral, antioxidant, and antidiabetic properties. Thus,(More)
Primary intestinal lymphoma is a rare lymphoproliferative neoplasm of the small intestine. The primary nature is established on the basis of lack of evidence of lymphoma on chest X-ray, computerized tomographic scan, peripheral blood or bone marrow puncture. Tumor involvement is limited to the gastrointestinal tract, the criteria for inclusion are that the(More)
Giant cell tumor (GCT) of the bone is a benign locally aggressive neoplasm which accounts for 3-8 % of all primary bone tumors. 60-70 % of the patients with giant cell tumor of the bone occur in the age group of 20-40 years. Patients older than 55 years of age very rarely develop GCT. Although many case series have been published on giant cell tumor of the(More)
BACKGROUND Gall bladder carcinoma accounts for 98% of all the gall bladder malignancies and it is the sixth most common malignancy of the gastrointestinal tract worldwide. The incidence of incidental gall bladder carcinoma which is diagnosed during or after a laparoscopic cholecystectomy is reported to be around 0.19-3.3% in the literature. AIM This study(More)

This study analyzes and statistically evaluates the hematological changes as a diagnostic test for malaria in patients with acute febrile illness and whether these could guide the physician to institute specific antimalarial treatment. METHODS The present(More)
The present study aimed at investigating physicochemical changes in modified LDL by sugars specifically fructose due to recent reports on its involvement in cardiovascular diseases and also glucose and their role in subsequent in vitro accumulation of cholesterol in macrophages. Antiglyca-tion action of aminoguanidine was also investigated. LDL isolated(More)
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the endometrium, whether primary or secondary to cervical cancer, is a rare entity. Primary endometrial squamous cell carcinoma in situ is even more uncommon; it usually occurs in postmenopausal women and has a strong association with pyometra. We report a 60-year-old multiparous postmenopausal woman who presented to the(More)
