Prostate cancer (PCa) is one of the leading cancers in older males. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinico-pathological characteristics of prostate cancer and rate of detection of prostate cancer by DRE (digital rectal exam) in patients presenting to a tertiary care private sector hospital in Islamabad, and determine the awareness about PCa in these patients. There were 226 patients who presented from December 2009 to December 2015 having mean age of 68.63 ±8.76 years and median Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) value of 19...

Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy (BSCL) syndrome is a rare genetic disorder caused by dysregulation of glycemic and lipid metabolism. We report five BSCL cases with typical clinical pictures and complications. These, to the best of our knowledge, represent the first case series from Pakistan. BSCL is characterized by marked atrophy of adipose tissue, acromegaly, acanthosis nigricans and tall stature. We could not perform genetics studies in any patient owing to non-availability of genetic laboratory in Pakistan...

Roberts syndrome is a very rare autosomal recessive inheritance pattern genetic disorder characterised by symmetric bilateral extremity deformities, midfacial defect, and severe intellectual deficit. These patients also grow slowly prenatal and postnatal. RBS is caused by mutation in the ESCO2 gene. With these clinical and radiological findings, the case was diagnosed as Roberts syndrome. Full gene sequencing of the ESCO2 gene for the patient was done. In this patient, a novel frameshift mutation was identified in the ESCO2 gene...

Iridogoniodysgenesis is a rare autosomal dominant disorder affecting anterior segment of the eye. Fifty percent cases of iridogoniodysgenesis have glaucoma, which is particularly difficult to manage. We report here a case of 40 years old man with this rare disorder, presenting to our glaucoma department. It was characterised by iris hypoplasia and juvenile glaucoma. To stop fluctuation in his intraocular pressure (IOP) and to save his vision from glaucomatous damage, our team had to do three different surgical procedures, i...

The occurrence of distal coronary lesions causing simultaneous occlusion of two coronary arteries in the setting of ST elevation myocardial infarction is a rare occurrence. This can occur due to simultaneous plaque rupture at more than one site or embolisation in coronary arteries. We describe a case of a middle-aged man who presented with acute inferoposterior lateral wall ST elevation myocardial infarction with simultaneous occlusion of distal left anterior descending artery and distal left circumflex artery on angiogram...

Priyadarshan Anand Jategaonkar, Smita Priyadarshan Jategaonkar, Sudeep Pradeep Yadav
Cooperative laparoscopic endoscopic intra-gastric surgery, with its ability to acquire advantages of both these technologies, is a recent development in the field of minimally invasive surgery. However, the pre-requisition of its multi-disciplinary approach together with several technical constraints have, plausibly, limited its widespread acceptance. The ever-increasing number of modifications being reported in today's literature largely underscores the inability of any one to be the best. We illustrate a novel, simple-to-learn, rapid and potentially cost-effective technique of intra-gastric surgery using just the routine laparoscopic instruments, and name it the 'Jategaonkar technique'...

In Pakistan, extensive use of several precarious chewable tobacco formulations has made oral cancer the second leading malignancy. Selection of literature was done by a survey of studies published from 1990 to 2017 mainly, from PUBMED and few from other search engines, on naswar, gutka, areca nut and betel quid, which included published reviews, original articles and other data sources on chewable tobacco, its epidemiology, pathological implications, and psychological effects. These studies have revealed that the chemicals in these formulations bind and mutate DNA of oral mucosa through down regulating cellular repair pathways and upregulating genetic networks associated with pathogenesis...
