The occurrence of microfilaria in pleural fluid is rare. Filarial lung involvement occurs in the form of Tropical Pulmonary Eosinophilia with pulmonary infiltrates and peripheral eosinophilia. We report a 74-year-old male patient, non smoker who was admitted to our hospital with breathlessness and chest discomfort of two weeks duration. He had, eosinophilia and deranged renal function. X-ray chest revealed massive left sided pleural effusion. Pleural fluid analysis revealed atypical cells and pleural fluid cytology showed microfilaria (Wuchereria bancrofti), which were also found on peripheral smear...

Emphysematous gastritis is a rare but severe form of phlegmonous gastritis caused by gastric mucosal disruption and infection of stomach wall by gas-forming bacteria. Ingestion of corrosive substances is the most common predisposing factor, followed by alcohol abuse, abdominal surgery, diabetes and immunosuppression. Patients usually present with abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation and/or gastro-intestinal hemorrhage. Characteristic radiological findings include presence of gas in the gastric wall...

This case of a 16-year-old female with moderately-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus with tracheo-esophageal fistula, hyperthyroidism and sputum positive pulmonary tuberculosis with RNTCP Category 1 DOTS is reported because of its rarity. The patient presented with cough, vomiting, weight loss and respiratory distress.

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) is a well-known entity. We present two rare presentations of the same. Our first patient was diagnosed to have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with ventricular tachycardia (VT), for which an ICD had been implanted. He later developed acute TTC with a large left ventricular (LV) apical thrombus. Our second patient was a 59 year old lady diagnosed to have TTC 2 years ago, from which she had recovered completely. She recently developed a recurrence of the same.

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is an autoimmune blistering disorder of the skin first described in 1953. A decade later, antibodies were described targeting the cutaneous basement membrane zone. The association of Bullous pemphigoid with malignancy is debatable1 but reported in many case reports.2-6 We report a 79 year old male with cholangiocarcinoma that presented with bullous pemphigoid as a paraneoplastic phenomenon.

Ashutosh Chaturvedi, Arun Kumar
Spontaneous pneumothorax is a very rare entity in H1N1 infection unless it is co-existent with other respiratory conditions especially COPD. The other factors are old age, children below 5 years and patients with ILD. The mortality rate goes high with pulmonary illness complicated by H1N1 infection in smokers and in pregnant women. This is the first reported case of H1N1 infection with Spontaneous Pneumothorax in India.

N Nand, S K Singla, S Magu
Myocardial Abscess (MA) is a rare life threatening condition mostly occurring secondary to underlying infective endocarditis. But it can also be found secondary to septicemia with some unknown focus of sepsis in the body. Development of MA as a consequence of left ventricular aneurysm (LVA) secondary to myocardial infarction is very rare. We report the case of 56 year old male, who presented with high grade fever and leukocytosis. On detailed evaluation, he was found to have a myocardial abscess with underlying LVA...

R Arora, Jasmita, M Singh, A Garg, M Gupta, N Gupta
BK virus (BKV) hemorrhagic cystitis (HC) is a serious cause of morbidity and mortality after allogeneic hematopoietic SCT (allo-HSCT) in patients with hematological malignancies. Around half of allogenic HSCT patients present with BKV viruria at some point after HSCT; about 5-40% of these patients subsequently develop active HC. Supportive care including bladder irrigation, blood transfusions and symptomatic pain management remains the mainstay of therapy; the acyclic nucleoside analogue cidofovir is currently the front-line drug for BKV-HC treatment...

Macrophage Activation Syndrome (MAS) occurs as a severe life-threatening complication of several chronic rheumatic diseases. It is more frequent with systemic onset juvenile arthritis and adult onset Still's disease.1 It can be primary, infection related, malignancy associated or autoimmune3. We report a case of Macrophage Activation Syndrome presenting as pyrexia of unknown origin (PUO) and pancytopenia in the absence of any known triggering factor.

Neuro-Behcet's disease (NBD) is a rare neurological manifestation of the systemic small vessel vasculitis called Behcet's disease. It can present in various ways with predilection for the brain stem, thalamo- hypothalamic regions, cerebellum and basal ganglia. In this case, we describe a case of young stroke that was later attributed to NBD.

Danish Kathuria, N P Singh
The incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI) has been increasing worldwide. The increase is attributable not only to ageing population with multiple comorbidities, polypharmacy, increasing use of contrast for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures but also to the fact that now it is being recognized more often. The 'Zero by 25' initiative by International Society of Nephrology aims at preventing all avoidable deaths from AKI worldwide by the year 2025. It calls for greater awareness about management of AKI among primary care physicians...

Recent years have seen an increase in the use of nebulizers for delivering maintenance therapy in obstructive airway diseases (OADs) such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The probable factors associated with this increase at home are: convenience of drug delivery, technological advances making the nebulizer equipment more efficient and portable, increase in the prevalence of OADs and the ageing population which may impact the optimal use of handheld inhalers such as pressurized metered dose inhalers (pMDIs) and dry powder inhalers (DPIs)...
