Abortion is the termination of pregnancy that occurs spontaneously or purposely. In the most developed world, abortion is legally allowed for women seeking safe termination of pregnancies. Particularly, when access to legal abortion is restricted, abortion is the resort to unsafe methods. The aim of this review is to necessitate safe abortion and to accentuate the consequences of illegal abortion in case of legal prohibition. We used Pubmed, MedLine and Scopus databases to review previous literatures of safe, unsafe, legal and illegal abortions...

Pachydermoperiostosis or primary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy, also known as Touraine-Solente-Gole syndrome, is a rare process, frequently inherited. In its complete form it is characterized by pachydermia (thickening of the skin), skeletal changes (periostosis) and acropachia (digital clubbing). Diagnosis can be made considering the typical clinical features and the histological feature. We report a patient of 25-year old man presented with joint pain involving in multiple joints for last 7 years and progressive enlargement of his hands and feet with profuse sweating of palms and soles for last 4 years...

Polycystic disease of the pancreas is very rare and only few cases have been reported in the literature. We report a case of 27 year old female presented with recurrent upper abdominal pain associated with nausea and vomiting. Her ultrasonography of whole abdomen and computed tomography (CT) scan revealed polycystic pancreas associated with hepatic cysts. She underwent distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy. Histological examination revealed typical features of polycystic pancreatic disease in the resected specimen...

In developing countries like Bangladesh the prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus is increasing day by day. Among the long-term complications of diabetes mellitus, vascular complications represent a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Hyperglycemia is still considered the principal cause of diabetes complications. Total plasma homocysteine (tHcy) is an emerging cardiovascular risk factor. Hyperhomocysteinemia independently appears to be a stronger risk factor for mortality than other risk factors in type 2 diabetes than in non diabetes...

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a gold standard surgical procedure for gallbladder operation. It causes altered haemodynamic responses due to pneumoperitoneum and surgical procedure also causes high incidence of postoperative nausea &vomiting. Clonidine has been shown to reduce intraoperative haemodynamic instability. This randomized prospective single blind clinical study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of oral clonidine premedication for attenuation of haemodynamic responses associated with pneumoperitoneum & also reduce the incidence of postoperative nausea & vomiting and carried out in the department of Anaesthesia Analgesia and Intensive care Medicine, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, Dhaka, Bangladesh from January 2010 to June 2010...

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia is the most common (77%) childhood leukemia and also the most common neoplastic disease in children. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia initially present with hyperleukocytosis (WBC count more than 50,000/mm³) in twenty percent cases. These children are particularly at risk of development of tumor lysis syndrome (TLS). Tumor lysis syndrome is a metabolic disorder consists of hyperuricaemia, hyperkalemia, hyperphosphataemia, hypocalcaemia with or without renal insufficiency. It is the most common disease related emergency encountered by physicians caring for cancer of children and adult...

Colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the third leading cause of cancer death in both men and women in the US. It is mainly a disease of the developed countries with a western culture, yet the disease is not uncommon in developing countries. There is substantial geographical variation in the incidence and demographic characteristics of the disease. Variations are also observed in the risk factors, mode of presentation, sub site distribution and stage of the disease at presentation...

Among communicable disease, tuberculosis is the second leading cause of death worldwide, killing nearly two million people each year. Several diagnostic techniques are currently used to detect mycobacteria in respiratory specimens. Therefore an alternative, rapid and most effective method is required for diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis which is relatively more sensitive and specific. A total of 107 sputum samples of suspected TB patients were enrolled attending the National Tuberculosis Reference Laboratory (NTRL), Mohakhali, Dhaka, Bangladesh from July 2014 to July 2015...

Cervical cancer is a major world health problem for women. It is the fourth most leading cause of death in women around the world. High risk HPV DNA has been shown to be present in 99.7% of cervical cancers worldwide. Oncoprotein E6 and E7 play an important role in the development of cervical cancer which can be detected by OncoE6 cervical test. This Cross sectional observational study was performed to detect E6 Oncoprotein from cervical swab by OncoE6 cervical test. Following universal safety precautions a total of 47 endocervical swabs were collected from Colposcopy clinic of Obstetrics and Gynaecology department of Mymensingh Medical College Hospital (MMCH), Mymensingh, Bangladesh from January 2015 to December 2015...

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and thyroid disorders (TD) are the two most common endocrine disorders in clinical practice. Unrecognized thyroid disorders may adversely affect the metabolic control and add more risk to an already predisposing type 2 diabetes mellitus. The objective of the study is to find out the percentage of hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and non diabetic subjects.

Liver biopsy is an integral part of management of patients with Chronic Hepatitis B (CHB), which is helpful in confirming diagnosis, assessing grade of inflammation and stage of fibrosis and also in guiding treatment strategy. Although liver biopsy is relatively safe, morbidity occurs in 0.2-2% of patients. Hence various non-invasive markers, like AST-ALT Ratio (AAR), Age-Platelet Index (API), AST to Platelet Ratio Index (APRI), Fibroscan etc. have been developed worldwide to asses liver histology. Age-Spleen-Platelet Ratio Index (ASPRI) is new in this series...

Hyperbilirubinemia is a common problem during the neonatal period and is the most common reason for readmission after early hospital discharge of the healthy near term and term infants. This early discharge policy along with limited follow-up facilities in developing countries and inadequate communication between physicians and parents necessitates a prognostic test to predict hyperbilirubinemia in these newborns; for early and effective management and prevention of potential complication before it occurred...

Incision and drainage is the management plan of any infected sebaceous cyst from old age. But in infected sebaceous cyst, we can treat it in a simple way.Under local or general anesthesia the infected tissue is excised along with a rim of healthy tissue and then closed by Prolene in the same sitting. Usually stitches are removed on 21st day in the back and 14th day in the limb.
