Neuroacanthocytosis is a heterogeneous group of disorders which result in progressive neurodegeneration, predominantly of the basal ganglia, and erythrocyte acanthocytosis. We report a case of neuroacanthocytosis with typical phenotype of choreoacanthocytosis. A 40 year male presented with features of chorea with orofaciolingual dystonia producing eating and speech difficulties. There were features of self mutilation in form of lip and tongue biting. Peripheral blood smear examination revealed acanthocytes in our patient...

Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) and posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) are two rare diseases which may present with similar symptoms and signs. We report a case with coexisting PRES and CVST in a 34 years old postpartum female presented with multiple episodes of generalized seizures and bilateral vision loss after delivery. MRI brain and venography revealed left transverse sinus, sigmoid sinus and internal cerebral vein thrombosis with vasogenic edema in bilateral parieto-occipital, right temporal and left frontal area, which was suggestive of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES)...

Gaucher disease (GD) is the most common lysosomal storage disorder, caused by deficiency of acid beta glucosidase. GD usually presents in children but occasional cases can present in adulthood. Here we report a case of type I GD in a 37 year old female who presented with intracerebral bleed due to long standing thrombocytopenia. She underwent splenectomy in view of limited resources for enzyme replacement therapy. With splenectomy her platelet counts normalised and neurological status also improved.

Metastatic cutaneous involvement is a rare extraintestinal manifestation of Crohn's disease. Presence of cutaneous noncaseating granulomas that are anatomically noncontiguous in location with a fistula or the gastrointestinal tract is a diagnostic hallmark. We present a case of inflammatory bowel disease initially diagnosed as ulcerative colitis, but later manifesting as intra-abdominal abscesses and ulcerated cutaneous lesions that on biopsy proved to be metastatic Crohn's disease. The patient promptly responded to corticosteroid therapy...

Lymphocytic hypophysitis is an inflammatory /autoimmune disorder that primarily involves the pituitary gland and the pituitary stalk. The common clinical presentations include headache, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, features of hypopituitarism and diabetes insipidus as well as diplopia, orbital pain and bitemporal hemianopia. We report a case of lymphocytic hypophysitis which presented as hemichorea. Neuroimaging showed a mass in the sella tursica region which, on histopathological examination was suggestive of lymphocytic hypophysitis...

A 44 year old lady presented with acute onset of loss of vision in the right eye and cough with mucopurulent expectoration for two months. Ophthalmic examination revealed central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO). Chest radiograph showed multiple cavitatory nodules with fluid levels. Sputum was negative for AFB and ANCA was strongly positive suggestive of a diagnosis of Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis (GPA). Within the next few weeks the patient had rapid detenoration due to left eye CRAO, progressive bilateral hearing loss, facial palsy and retro orbital mass...

Mucormycosis in humans has been described as early as 1885 in literature. Isolated renal mucormycosis is rare as it has been mainly described in developing countries like India and China. It is rarer still to find this entity in immunocompetent young males without any risk factors. Specific guidelines on the treatment is not yet known but combined surgical and medical therapy is considered the best modality for its management. We describe a young male who presented with bilateral hydroureteronephrosis. He was initially treated as a case renal tuberculosis which is relatively more common in TB endemic country like ours...

INTRODUCTION: Premix insulin is the most commonly used insulin preparation in India. The first Indian premix guidelines were developed in 2009 and thereafter were updated in 2013. There is a need to revisit the Indian premix insulin guidelines, in view of emerging evidence and introduction of newer co-formulations. OBJECTIVE: The present consensus has been developed to evaluate available premix formulations, examine existing evidence related to premix formulations, and evolve consensus statement of recommendations on the topic...

REVIEW
Arup Kumar Misra, Pramod Kumar Sharma
Insomnia is highly prevalent and is associated with a range of psychological, psychiatric, and medical conditions. Insomnia affects health by influencing cognitive, emotional and social functioning. Circadian and sleep homeostatic processes play an important role in insomnia development and its maintenance. Several efficacious treatments, both pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic, exist for the management of insomnia. Among non-pharmacologic treatments including stimulus control therapy, sleep restriction, relaxation, sleep hygiene and cognitive therapy have been shown to be efficacious...

AIM: To evaluate the correlation between the levels of CD4, CD8 and CD25 cells and SLE disease in active phase and in remission. METHODS: A total of 25 SLE patients, aged between 18-60 years, and fulfilling the ACR criteria with preferential Renal and CNS involvement were included in this study. Baseline CD4/CD8 and CD25 counts, lab parameters etc were conducted. Approximately at the end of 6 months with the settlement of the disease activity blood sample was drawn for the CD4, CD8 and CD25 counts and other lab parameters...
