Hypothyroidism is a rare cause of pericardial effusion (PE). Pericardial effusion secondary to hypothyroidism remains a diagnostic challenge for clinicians because of its inconsistency between symptoms and amount of pericardial effusion. We report an atypical case that presented with ascites and was diagnosed to have cardiac tamponade secondary to primary hypothyroidism. Besides repeated pericardiocentesis she eventually required surgical management and optimization of medical therapy to manage the massive pericardial effusion...

A 45 years female presented with short duration of dry cough and atypical chest pain. Chest X ray showed cardiomegaly with a bulge at the right heart border and curvilinear calcification in left upper abdomen. Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) revealed a cystic lesion in the right ventricle free wall causing compression of right atrial and ventricular cavity. Cardiac CT confirmed this cyst as hydatid cyst. Patient underwent successful excision of right ventricular hydatid cyst.

Osteopetrosis is a rare disorder of osteoclastic bone resorption leading to hyperostosis. Albers-Schonberg disease, an autosomal dominant variant of osteopetrosis occurs in young adults and has a benign course. A 17 year old female presented with generalized weakness and pallor for last two months. She had insidious onset and gradually progressive loss of vision and hearing for last two years. Plain x-ray of skull revealed increased radio-opacity of skull bones specially in the base, severe under-pneumatization of frontal and sphenoidal sinuses...

Hidradenitis suppurativa complicating epithelial malignancy in people living with HIV is very rare. Hidradenitis suppurativa is very rare seen in only 1% of general population and 4% of young adults. We report a case of Hidradenitis suppurativa complicating an epithelial malignancy in are immunocompromised (HIV reactive) patient.

Since six decades, Isoniazid and Rifampicin are used as first line drugs for treatment of tuberculosis. The minimum acute lethal or toxic dose of Rifampicin is not well established. However, non-fatal acute overdoses in adults have been reported with doses ranging from 9 to 12 gm and fatal acute overdoses with doses ranging from 14 to 60 gm. Isoniazid, if acutely ingested, even 1.5 to 2 gram may cause toxicity in adults. We report a case of Pott's spine on ATT, who took massive overdose of Rifampicin (>18 gm) and Isoniazid (>12 gm) and reported late (almost 36 hours) after ingestion...

Rhinosporidiosis, though reported from several countries, has the highest incidence in India (notably South India) and Sri Lanka, with most cases presenting as nasal polyps. Nasopharynx and palpebral conjunctiva account for 85% of the sites. Other mucosal sites affected are oropharynx, larynx, rectum and external genitalia. Disseminated rhinosporidiosis is usually associated with mucosal lesions. Rhinosporidiosis affecting skin, subcutaneous tissue and bone are uncommon. Herein we report a rare case of disseminated rhinosporidiosis mimicking a soft tissue sarcoma...

Tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) is an abnormal communication between the trachea and esophagus. Iatrogenic TEF can be due to endotracheal intubation, rigid bronchoscopy or tracheostomy. Tracheostomy tube cuff volumes and pressures require constant monitoring to avoid tracheal injury. Acquired TEF which occurs after prolonged intubation, usually develops after 15-200 days of mechanical ventilation. We report a case of a large TEF secondary to endotracheal intubation for organophosphorus poison-induced respiratory failure...

Gouranga Santra, Shinjan Patra
Ebstein's anomaly (EA) is a rare congenital heart disease. Paradoxical embolism (PDE) may occur in EA due to associated atrial septal defect (ASD). An 18 year old male with EA presented with left lower limb ischemia due to PDE to the limb. No features of cerebral embolism was present. PDE is a potential complication of EA. High level of awareness is needed for early diagnosis of PDE in EA to save a limb in case of embolism to the extremity.

Rambabu Singh, Kshitiz Nath, Archana
Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is a rare inherited heart condition in which delayed repolarization of the heart following a heartbeat, increases the risk of episodes of Torsades de pointes (TdP, a form of irregular heartbeat that originates from the ventricles). These episodes may lead to palpitations, fainting, and sudden death due to ventricular fibrillation. Episodes may be provoked by various stimuli, depending on the subtype of the condition. We are reporting a case of 37 years old male whom we diagnosed to have long QT syndrome on the basis of clinical and ECG findings...

Chikungunya fever is believed to be a self-limiting illness, which can result in significant disability, but with a very low mortality. Chikungunya is uncommonly believed to be associated with serious manifestations. The present case is of a pregnant lady who had transient fever for two days in the third trimester, following which she developed foetal pericardial effusion and intrauterine growth restriction. After two weeks of the fever, in view of non-reactive non-stress test, breech and foetal pericardial effusion, patient was taken up for caesarean section...

BACKGROUND: Over recent years, the field of medicine has been challenged by the twin epidemic of heart failure and renal insufficiency. The coexistence of the two problems in the same patient, referred to as cardiorenal syndrome (CRS), is defined as 'disorders of the heart and kidneys whereby acute or chronic dysfunction in one organ may induce acute or chronic dysfunction of the other. The mechanisms underlying this interaction are complex and multifactorial in nature. OBJECTIVE OF STUDY: Identify and classify patients admitted with cardiorenal syndrome into various subtypes and assess clinical outcome at discharge and at three months...

INTRODUCTION: Substantial burden of diabetes and hypertension is on rise in India, leading to a twin epidemic. India, being a rural country, has unique problems regarding the treatment compliance which is a serious risk for morbidity and mortality. OBJECTIVE: To assess the compliance to treatment of hypertension and diabetes amongst the diagnosed patients from rural area and to study reasons of non-compliance and knowledge and attitude. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Community based, cross sectional, observational study conducted in the rural communities of Tara and Barapada villages of Raigad district of Maharashtra...
