Sacral Tuberculosis: An Unsual Location of a Common Disease

Abstract : Sacral tuberculosis is extremely rare musculoskeletal manifestation of spinal tuberculosis (TB) with only a few reported cases in available literature. Sacral area is mostly involved in spondyloarthropathies and certain malignancies, and the features of sacral tuberculosis may often mimic malignancy. Our case is aimed at expanding the knowledge on sacral tuberculosis. We present a case of 29 year old male patient who presented with complains of chronic backache and recent onset neurological defi

Lemmel Syndrome: An Unusual Cause of Obstructive Jaundice.

Abstract : Lemmel syndrome is a rare and unusual cause of obstructive jaundice caused by a periampullary duodenal diverticulum compressing on common bile duct causing obstructive features. We present a case of 82 year old male with upper abdominal pain and features of obstructive jaundice, Imaging (CECT:Contrast enhanced computed tomography) revealed a periampullary duodenal diverticulum causing compression of common bile duct, thus a diagnosis of Lemmel Syndrome was made. The patient underwent ERCP (endos

Case Report: Cholangiocarcinoma Occurred in Pediatric Choledochal Cyst

Abstract : Choledochal cysts (CC) is a rare congenital anomalies of biliary tract, characterized by dilatation of biliary duct. CC is commonly seen in Asian population and primarily seen in children. Early resecttion of choledochal cyst will reduce the risk of cholangiocarcinoma. We report a 11-year-old Javanese girl, already diagnosed with choledochal cyst todani classification type IVa from US examination and MRCP examination since she was 7 years old. She had history of jaundice since birth. She had dra

A Study of Morphological and Morphometric Variations in Sri Lankan Diaphyseal Nutrient Foramina of Humerus

Abstract : Predominantly, the nutrient artery gives the blood supply to the long bones through the nutrient foramen. The present study analyzed the morphometric and morphological variations of Sri Lankan diaphyseal nutrient foramen of the humerus concerning the number, size, location, and direction along the shaft. A sample of 50 dry adult humeri was analyzed. The mean length of the bones was 29.53cm. The mean foramen index was 55.59. The current study encountered single, double, and triple nutrient forami

The Dynamics Of Parents' Experiences Throughout Childrearing

Abstract : Various mental health problems can affect the child's future, and bad conditions can be caused by improper parenting. Positive parenting can optimize the growth of children's development and mental health. However, until now, there is still limited research related to the experience of parenting for their children. This study explores parents' experiences in providing care for their children. The type of research used is qualitative research with a phenomenological approach. Eight mothers who me

The Relationship between Serum Ferritin and Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor-1 in Pediatric Beta Thalassemia Major Patients

Abstract : Serum ferritin level is a routine check to monitor iron overload in thalassemia patients. Iron overload due to transfusion can lead organ damage, such as causing vascular damage which is at risk of reminding the incidence of thrombosis. Patients with thalassemia frequently have increased plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) levels from the side effects of blood transfusion, such as vascular complications like inflammation, vasculitis, and thrombosis. There may be a relationship between seru

MRI evaluation of trigeminal neuralgia patients in a rural hospital of central India - Study Protocol

Abstract : Trigeminal neuralgia is a disease condition characterized by repetitive paroxysmal electric shock like pain in the distribution of trigeminal nerve. Most common cause implicated in this condition is neurovascular conflict, mostly by superior cerebellar artery in prepontine cistern. Other common causes include cerebello-pontine angle tumours and aneurysms at level of brainstem. MRI is the imaging modality of choice in evaluation of trigeminal neuralgia with 3D-FIESTA (Fast imaging employing stead


Abstract : Pulmonary sequestration is a congenital malformation of lung wherein there is aberrant lung tissue which is non-functional and has no communication with bronchial tree and has supply from systemic arterial circulation. We present a case report of pulmonary sequestration in 28-year-old ANC patient on 17 weeks and 22 weeks of gestation.

D-dimer levels predict mortality in Southeast Asian COVID-19 patients treated in ICU: a prospective, observational study

Abstract : Several publications have described the laboratory characteristics of COVID-19. Notably, the increase in D-dimer levels was more pronounced in individuals who were seriously ill. The goal of this study was to observe and discover if either D-dimer, CRP, fibrinogen, and IL-6 acted as a mortality predictor in Southeast Asian population, COVID-19 patients treated in the ICU. This was a prospective, observational study. All Southeast Asian ethnic, ≥18 years old patients diagnosed with COVID-19 who

Detection of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) using modified conventional cefoxitin-based media as an alternative screening

Abstract : Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) can cause infection with higher morbidity and mortality. In the limited-resource setting, the availability of rapid detection is doubtful; therefore, prompt detection using the alternative method is indispensable. To compare the detection rate of the modified-conventional method and chromogenic media against mucocutaneous clinical swab, during 12-month periods of study. A total of 80 S. aureus isolates from previous study were cultivated and re-
