Mineralizing angiopathy presenting with recurrence of basal ganglia stroke following minor head trauma.

J Postgrad Med 2019 Mar 29. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Department of Paediatrics, Pt B D Sharma Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Rohtak, Haryana, India.

Basal ganglia stroke secondary to mineralizing angiopathy of lenticulostriate arteries is a well-recognized clinical entity following minor head trauma in children. Recurrences are uncommon, and the majority of these recurrences occur within a few months of initial insult. We report a 2-year-old boy who developed recurrence of basal ganglia stroke after a latency of 18 months from the time of first unrecognized insult at 6 months of age. Read More

Central Institutional Ethics Committee needed to facilitate timely review of multicenter clinical trials.

J Postgrad Med 2019 Mar 29. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Clinical Pharmacology, Advanced Centre for Treatment, Research and Education in Cancer, Tata Memorial Centre, India.

A multicenter trial in India undergoes review by Institutional Ethics Committees (IECs) of all participating institutions. The failure to obtain approval even from a single institution's IEC creates a situation of inequitable access to clinical trials. The dichotomy in decisions of different IECs is attributed to lack of standardization and accountability in their functioning. Read More

Department of Surgery, Seth GS Medical College, Parel, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Background: Thyroid Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) or transoral endoscopic thyroidectomy using vestibular approach is a recent advance embraced by the surgical community because of its potential for a scar-free thyroidectomy. In this article, we present our initial experience with this technique.

Materials And Methods: We used a three-port technique through the oral vestibule, one 10 mm port for the laparoscope and two additional 5 mm ports for the endoscopic instruments required. Read More

Fungal fibrosing mediastinitis in pregnancy - Case report with review of literature.

J Postgrad Med 2019 Jan-Mar;65(1):52-55

Department of Pathology, Seth GS Medical College and KEM Hospital, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Fibrosing mediastinitis (FM) is characterized by extensive and invasive fibro-inflammatory proliferation, triggered by a delayed hypersensitivity reaction to variety of infective or noninfective stimuli. The infective agents often have a geographic distribution such as Histoplasma capsulatum in North America and Mycobacterium tuberculosis in Asian regions. In few reports, the mediastinitis is caused by fungi, particularly Aspergillus species. Read More

A prospective study of evaluation of operative duration as a predictor of mortality in pediatric emergency surgery: Concept of 100 minutes laparotomy in resource-limited setting.

J Postgrad Med 2018 Dec 27. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College and Hospital, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Introduction: Operative duration is an important but under-studied predictor of mortality in emergency laparotomies.

Aims And Objectives: The primary objective of this study was to quantify the effect of duration of emergency laparotomy in children on mortality; and to identify a rough cut-off duration of laparotomy to serve as a guide so that a laparotomy can be planned to optimize pediatric surgical patient outcome.

Materials And Methods: This is a prospective study conducted in a government tertiary teaching institution over a period of 24 months. Read More

Department of Public Health Dentistry, Rungta College of Dental Sciences and Research, Kohka, Bhilai, Chhattisgarh, India.

In today's world when biomedical science is experiencing continuous threats from various sources, publication of research articles in predatory journals has created a major havoc. These predatory journals are publishing worthless biomedical science which will haunt genuine researchers and keen readers of authentic biomedical journals for several decades. Hence, researchers of various disciplines and academic experience should be continuously made aware of these predatory publishers and potential ways to recognize them. Read More

J Postgrad Med 2018 Oct-Dec;64(4):232-236

Department of Neurosurgery, Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital, New Delhi, India.

Primary calvarial (excluding jaw) osteosarcoma is rare. We report two cases highlighting their unusual presentation and histopathologic variability - a 30-year-old female who presented with progressively increasing headache and a rapidly growing frontal swelling and a 16-year-old girl who had a rapidly growing mass in the left frontoparietal region which had recurred thrice but was otherwise asymptomatic. The lesions were osteolytic on neuroimaging and histopathological examination confirmed osteosarcoma. Read More

Corkscrewing of retinal arterioles leading to diagnosis of coarctation of aorta.

J Postgrad Med 2018 Oct-Dec;64(4):253-254

Department of Ophthalmology, Narayana Medical College, Nellore, Andhra Pradesh, India.

Coarctation of aorta (CoA) usually leads to elevation of blood pressure above the site of obstruction and this elevated blood pressure probably gets transferred and is reflected in the retinal arterioles producing certain signs of hypertensive retinopathy. Fundus examination helps in differentiating hypertension due to CoA from other causes of juvenile hypertension, as corkscrewing of retinal arterioles is seen only in CoA but not in other conditions. A 16 year hypertensive male who was on antihypertensive treatment presented for routine checkup. Read More

Peripheral arterial disease and risk of hip fracture: A systematic review and meta-analysis of cohort studies.

J Postgrad Med 2018 Oct-Dec;64(4):220-225

Department of Internal Medicine, University of Mississippi Medical Center, Jackson, Mississippi, USA.

Background: Previous studies have suggested an increased risk of hip fracture among patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD), however, the results have been inconsistent. This meta-analysis was conducted with the aim to summarize all available evidence to better characterize the risk of incident hip fracture among these patients.

Materials And Methods: A comprehensive literature review was conducted using the MEDLINE and EMBASE databases through October 2017 to identify all cohort and case-control studies that compared the risk of subsequent hip fracture between patients with PAD and individuals without PAD. Read More

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and kisspeptin - A Sri Lankan study.

J Postgrad Med 2019 Jan-Mar;65(1):18-23

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Sri Jayewardenepura, Sri Lanka.

Context: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the commonest endocrine disorder affecting young women. Kisspeptins are a family of closely related peptides encoded by Kiss1 gene that controls the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis by binding to its receptor (GPR54) expressed in gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neurons and releases GnRH. Since GnRH secretion is deregulated in PCOS, we hypothesized that dysregulated gonadotropin secretion in PCOS is reflected by kisspeptin levels. Read More

An unusual cause of respiratory distress.

J Postgrad Med 2019 Jan-Mar;65(1):38-40

Department of Pediatrics, Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research, Puducherry, India.

Exogenous lipoid pneumonia is a rare alveolar-filling disorder characterized by foreign body reaction to inhaled/aspirated hydrocarbon that may be vegetable oil, animal fat, or mineral oil. It is vanishingly rare and often missed except in the classical clinical settings of acute aspiration of petroleum products. We present a toddler with iatrogenic exogenous lipoid pneumonia and highlight clinical and radiological clues that can prompt early recognition of this entity. Read More

Moyamoya syndrome in hemoglobin E-beta thalassemia: A rare presentation and association.

J Postgrad Med 2018 Oct-Dec;64(4):240-242

Department of Pediatrics, Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Moyamoya disease is an idiopathic, nonatherosclerotic, noninflammatory, chronic progressive cerebrovascular disease characterized by bilateral stenosis or occlusion of the arteries around the circle of Willis, typically the supraclinoid internal carotid arteries, followed by extensive collateralization, which are prone to thrombosis, aneurysm, and hemorrhage. Secondary moyamoya phenomenon or moyamoya syndrome (MMS) occurs in a wide range of clinical scenarios including prothrombotic states such as sickle cell anemia, but the association with other hemoglobinopathies is less frequently observed. We describe a case of a 25-year-old female with hemoglobin E-beta thalassemia who had a rare presentation of MMS in the form of choreoathetoid movements in the left upper and lower extremities.
