Of the 79 patients studied, serum Amylase was found to be elevated (> 200 S.U) in 37 patients (46.95%), among them in three patients it was 800 S.U. One of them showed swollen pancreas on ultrasonography which was confirmed by Computerised Tomography. In other two patients, evidence of pancreatitis was not observed. There was no significant correlation between the nature of compounds (OP or carbamates), duration and severity of cholinergic syndrome and increase in serum Amylase. It has been concluded that mild elevation of serum Amylase is common in patients with OP poisoning, however acute pancreatitis is rare
Becker97 et al performed a metaanalysis of five randomized trials comprising 15,352 patients and found that use of ST-segment analysis did not reduce the rates of cesarean delivery or fetal metabolic acidemia at birth. Neilson98 reviewed the Cochrane Database to assess fetal ECG analysis during labor. There were 16,295 women in which such monitoring was performed. It was concluded that fetal ST-segment waveform analysis was useful in preventing fetal acidosis and neonatal encephalopathy when standard fetal heart rate monitoring suggested abnormal patterns. Intrapartum Doppler Velocimetry- Doppler analysis of the umbilical artery has been studied as another potential adjunct to conventional fetal monitoring.
PERIPHERAL OSSIFYING FIBROMA IN ELDERLY FEMALE PATIENT: case report INTRODUCTION Peripheral ossifying fibroma is a non-neoplastic proliferative process of multifactorial aetiology. This slow growth lesion is one of the most common inflammatory hyperplastic lesions of the oral cavity (EVERSOLE L.R; SABERS W.R, ROVEIN S, 1972 In: JUNIOR J.C.M; KEIM F.S; KREIBICH M.S, 2008). The pathogenesis of the lesion remains unclear, but is often associated with undifferentiated cells in the periodontal ligament, that when stimulated by irritants, for example, calculus, biofilm, the presence of orthodontic appliance with poor hygiene, crowns destruction caused by Carie cavities, traumatic restorations, as well as masticatory forces and impaction of food;
(43) Types of hyperplasia can affect breast cancer risk: 1) Mild hyperplasia of the usual type: does not increase the risk of breast cancer. 2) Moderate or florid hyperplasia of the usual type (without atypia), also known as usual hyperplasia: The risk of breast cancer is about 1½ to 2 times than that of a woman without breast abnormalities. 3) Atypical hyperplasia either atypical ductal hyperplasia [ADH] or atypical lobular hyperplasia [ALH]: The risk of breast cancer is about 3½ to 5 times higher than that of woman without breast abnormalities. AEH is divided in three categories: atypical ductal hyperplasia, columnar cell lesions with atypia, lobular
We describe a series of 4 cases which presented as ocular adnexal masses and a view on clinicopathological details. Key-words: B cell NHL, Introduction Majority of the orbital lymphomas are B cell non-Hodgkin's lymphomas and tend to present in the 6th and 7thdecades. Presentation before the age of 20 is rare. In children, orbital leukemic infiltrates are much more common than lymphoma. Most subtypes of lymphoma have a female-to-male risk of 1.5:1.
In these situations, percutaneous cholecystostomy guided by CT or US is advised. Ninety percent of these patients demonstrate clinical improvement. Once the patient has recovered, the cholecystostomy tube can be removed without sequelae; this usually takes place at about 6 weeks. Interval cholecystectomy is not necessary (Elwood, 2008). • Incidental gallbladder cancer: GB cancer may be an incidental finding at LC, with an incidence ranging from 0.3% to 5.0%.
The SD has been firstly described by Eulenberg in 1863.  In 1891, Sprengel described four cases of upward dislocation of the scapula.  Further, in the same year, Kolliker described four cases of upward displacement of the scapula and named the condition Sprengel’s deformity.  The aetiology of SD is unknown and few cases of familial SD described.  Most authors agree that the incidence of the undescended scapula affects women three times more often than men, although Kadavkolan and others reported the incidence of this entity equally in both sexes.
Studies in western population give an estimate of prevalence that is comparable to the Indian study. The Whickham survey, conducted in the Northern England, reported a mean incidence of 4•1/1000 per year for hypothyroidism in women. Several authors mention that the wide range in prevalence studies is due to inherent differences in age, gender, body-mass index (BMI), race, dietary iodine intake, and the cut-off serum TSH concentrations that are routinely used to define the condition. For example, most epidemiological surveys concur that the prevalence of mild thyroid dysfunction in the older people was clearly in excess of the prevalence in younger population (Cooper D et al.
In a study by Vidya et al 2,280 cases of ACC in a total of 41 articles. Out of these cases 1,382 were reported in intraoral sites and 178 were specifically reported in the buccal mucosa. Based on the above findings, they concluded that among intraoral minor salivary gland ACCs, 12.9% occurred in the buccal mucosa. The overall percentage of buccal mucosal ACCs was 7.8%. According to the articles reviewed, 60.6% of all adenoid cystic carcinomas occur in an intraoral
Imaging of malignancies shows invasion of the adjacent structures (nerves, bone, skull base, meninges and adjacent cervical spaces) and capsule rapture in pleomorphic adenoma all of them are better viewed by MRI. Postgadolinium, fat-supporetd T1W images are preferred for determining the invasions. Malignancies are also characterized by ill-defined margins in post contrast images.  Pleomorphic adenoma is homogeneously hyperintense on T2W, while the presence of mass with low to intermediate intensity on T2W images is an indication of
