Resident Medicine, RNT Medical College, Udaipur, Rajasthan.

Introduction: Cerebrovascular disorders (CVD) are increasing in prevalence and incidence in Indian population. Global burden of disease study shows that of the 9.4 million deaths in India, 619,000 were due to stroke. A matter of concern is that in the last two decades there is a significant increase in prevalence rate of stroke.

Aim: To find the demographic characteristics along with clinico-radiological profile and of patients presenting with stroke in a tertiary care hospital in Rajasthan.

Methodology: This cross sectional study was conducted for a period of 6 months from Aug 2015 to Jan 2016 in a tertiary care hospital .A sample size of 360 patients with aged >18 years were recruited after obtaining written consent from those who attended the medical OPD or were admitted to the government hospital with the newly diagnosed stroke and confirmed by neuroimaging.

Result: The mean age of stroke in present study was 60.46 ± 14.84 years. The stroke in the young age group defined as 40 years or less comprised only 6%. Hypertension as a risk factor was present in 52.5% of our patients followed by Dyslipidaemia (25.8%). 79.4% had ischemic stroke and 19.4 % haemorrhagic stroke. Supratentorial lesions were seen in 86.4% patients, infratentorial lesions in only 10% anterior circulation strokes (MCA>ACA) are more common than posterior circulation strokes. Motor and sensory symptoms are common in acute strokes rather than change in consciousness or speech abnormalities. 70.2% patients had moderate disability at the end of 28 days. Early presentation to hospital (<3hrs) is associated with better outcome and less morbidity in a stroke patient.

Cysticercosis, a parasitic disease caused by larval form of Taenia solium, is a major health concern in the developing world. The encysted larval stage can affect any part of the body, but are most frequently detected in brain, eye, skeletal muscle and subcutaneous tissue. Most muscular cysticercosis are almost always associated with central nervous system involvement or with multiple intramuscular cysts or both. Here we report an unusual case of cysticercosis in right rectus muscle which was an isolated muscle involvement without any other systemic manifestation.

J Assoc Physicians India 2015 Jun;63(6):73-5

The syndrome of familial hypoparathyroidism, sensorineural deafness, and renal dysplasia (HDR syndrome) is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait, caused by haploinsufficiency of the GATA3 gene in chromosome 10p. Although first described years ago, but the disease is considered to be very rare. Patients usually present with hypocalcemia, tetany, or afebrile convulsions at any age. Hearing loss is usually bilateral, range from mild to profound impairment. Renal disease includes dysplasia, hypoplasia or aplasia.
