This genome swapping ability leads to radically altered (and occasionally deadly) viral progeny, as occurred in later flu epidemics in 1957 and 1968. Incidentally although several hundred thousand Americans died in those epidemics, there was no spike in the number of cases of postencephalitic Parkinsonism

Ureteroceles can be a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge with clinical symptoms arising from an abnormal spectrum embryogenesis mainly associated with the abnormal development of the ureteral intravesical. They may be asymptomatic or appear with a wide range of clinical signs and symptoms, from recurrent urinary tract infection to bladder outlet obstruction and renal failure.

Lastly, prenatal injuries: mother acquires an infection or oxygen deficiency to the baby and developmental disorders: autism and neurofibromatosis (Epilepsy, 2017). To figure out if someone actually has epilepsy, they will go through tests to be

Organophosphorus insecticides are important agents of self-poisoning in developing and developed countries alike. Rampant misuse of organophospharus insecticides has been found in our country. It is in this background that a study was undertaken in Burdwan Medical College and Hospital, Burdwan, on 150 adult patients who have been admitted in the Medicine wards after consuming organophosphorus insecticides or accidental exposure to organophosphorous poison. 64 patients were male and 86 patients were female. Majority of the patients (63 patients) were in the age group of 21-30 years, and the least (10 patients) were above 40 years.
