Prader-Willi syndrome is a genomic imprinting disorder, characterized by obesity, hyperphagia, mental retardation, short stature and hypogonadism. The presenting signs and symptoms depend upon the age at which the patient is seen. Here we report a case of Prader-Willi syndrome, who presented at 16 years of age with diabetes mellitus and cryptorchidism.

Demyelinating disorders are very common, but remains isolated to the part of nervous system they involve. However, infrequently, combined involvement of central and peripheral nervous system with demyelinating process have been described. We report one such rare case, with possible theories of common etiological basis. We present a middle aged male patient with Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy(CIDP), who responded to immuno-modulation. Subsequently, he developed Acute Transverse Myelitis (ATM)...

Coarctation of aorta is a common congenital heart defect. The diagnosis may be missed unless a highindex of suspicion is maintained, and is often delayed until the patient develops congestive heart failure (CHF), (common in infants) or hypertension (common in older children). It seldom goes undiagnosed till adulthood and frequently leads to complications as a result of long-standing high blood pressure. Intracranial haemorrhage, premature coronary artery disease, aortic aneurysms and rupture have all been reported...

We report an interesting case of mediastinal fibrosis causing significant narrowing of both pulmonary arteries (right > left) which led to progressively increasing dyspnoea and pulmonary hypertension. This was treated with endovascular stenting of the right pulmonary artery with good clinical outcome.

G Manigandan, M S Seshadri
We report herein a patient who developed diclofenac-induced acute rhabdomyolysis and hypovolemic shock. Timely recognition and management led to rapid recovery. Awareness of this potentially life-threatening side-effect is very important to encourage sparing and selective use of this drug in clinical practice.

We report a case who presented to us with dyspnea and was found to have ML in the absence of steroid use, diabetes, Cushing syndrome and obesity. This case provides an important differential diagnosis in a patient presenting with dyspnea widened mediastinum and cardiomegaly. This is probably among very few cases of ML with dyslipidemia.

Marchiafava Bignami disease (MBD) is a rare and devastating complication of chronic alcoholism. Degeneration of the corpus callosum is the hallmark feature of MBD. Early diagnosis of MBD by its typical "Sandwich Sign" on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Prompt institution of treatment and strict alcohol abstinence can cause regression of changes and hence, clinical improvement. Here we report the case of a young chronic alcoholic male admitted with altered sensorium and his further course in ward.

Metformin and Sitagliptin are often used in combination in the management of non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus. Though toxicity is rare, but occurs more frequently in cases of intentional or unintentional overdose of these drugs. Here, we present a case of an intentional overdose of a metformin- sitagliptin combination (70g metformin and 3500mg sitagliptin) in a suicide attempt by a young non-diabetic female who presented with severe lactic acidosis and was successfully treated with prompt hemodialysis and bicarbonate therapy...

Cocaine addiction is a common problem in the adolescent and the young adults, pharmacologic interventions to reverse the effects of which do not exist. Neurological complications of cocaine abuse, such as seizures, headache, ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke, or subarachnoid hemorrhage, can be disastrous as a result of uncontrolled vasoconstriction and vasculitic damage. The lone occurrence of subdural hematoma in the absence of any other intracranial hemorrhagic complication is rarely seen in patients of cocaine abuse...

Celiac disease is considered to be rare in parts of the world where rice is a staple cereal. Kashmir is one of such places. We present an adult Kashmiri man, who had peripheral neuropathy, which turned out to be associated with celiac disease and improved remarkably with total elimination of gluten containing foods. This is probably the first case of celiac neuropathy reported from India.

Metronidazole is an antimicrobial used for the treatment of anaerobic bacterial and protozoal infections. Neurological toxicity due to metronidazole use has been a matter of concern and many case reports of neurotoxicity are being published. We report here a case of a 32 years old male chronic alcoholic with multiple liver abscesses and history of 6 weeks use of metronidazole presenting with multiple episodes of seizures, burning sensation of feet and altered sensorium. MRI Brain revealed characteristic and reversible involvement of dentate nuclei and splenium of corpus callosum, typical of metronidazole induced encephalopathy (MIE)...

Tuberous sclerosis is characterized by typical skin and clinical manifestations with predilection to neoplasia. We describe the case of a 42-year old female who presented with a mass and pain in right lumbar region with constitutional symptoms and generalized body aches since last one year. She had adenoma sebaceum, subungual fibromas and hepatomegaly. CT chest, abdomen and MRI revealed mass in the right renal fossa with wide spread extensions in the abdomen, left renal angiomyolipomas (AMLs) and intracerebral lesions...
