Juvenile systemic sclerosis (JSSc) is a rare disorder with paucity of information on its treatment and longterm  outcome. Herein, we are sharing our experience with this rare entity. Case records of children, diagnosed to have systemic sclerosis attending Pediatric Rheumatology Clinic at All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi from January 1998 to June 2016 were reviewed. The demographic, clinical, laboratory, treatment and outcome details were recorded. Disease outcome was classified arbitrarily as controlled, partly controlled or non-responsive/progressive based on: (A) ability to perform activities of daily life (ADL) and (B) presence or absence of musculoskeletal symptoms, skin changes (ulceration/progressive digital pitting/gangrene), and visceral organ involvement (dyspahgia, cardiopulmonary symptoms)...

Introduction The aim of this paper is to describe and demonstrate how a new bioimpedance analytical procedure can be used to monitor cellular hydration of End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients during hemodialysis (HD). Methods A tetra-polar bioimpedance spectroscope (BIS), (UFI Inc., Morro Bay, CA), was used to measure the tissue resistance and reactance of the calf of 17 ESRD patients at 40 discrete frequencies once a minute during dialysis treatment. These measurements were then used to derive intracellular, interstitial, and intravascular compartment volume changes during dialysis...

Antissintetase Syndrome (ASS) is characterized by myositis, Raunaud's phenomenon, fever, intertitial lung disease, mechanic's hands and arthropathy associated with the presence of antibodies against tRNA synthetase, especially anti-Jo-1. This article aims to review the literature on ASS and report two cases where the first is a patient with polymyositis who developed subluxation on the proximal interphalangeal joint of bilateral first right finger after a few years of the disease, associated with pulmonary manifestations and positive anti-JO-1...

Idiopathic pulmonary haemosiderosis (IPH) is a rare and serious disorder in children of unknown aetiolopathogeny. Association of IPH and coeliac disease (CD) is even rarer. Immunological origin of IPH is now well accepted. We report the case of an 11-year-old female admitted for evaluation of recurrent streaky haemoptysis that had been evolving over the previous 9 months. Physical examination revealed weight loss with normal weight, but there was cutaneous and mucosal pallor due to severe anaemia (haemoglobin 4...

Pulmonary involvement occurs in 3 to 10% of the cases of Plasmodium falciparum malaria and represents the most serious complication of this infection, with a lethality of about 70%. The understanding of its pathogenesis is still very fragmentary, however it is recognized that activation of the immune system by antigens released by the parasite plays an important role in the induction and worsening of lung damage. Capillary endothelial cells, which control the flux of fluids to the interstitial space, appear to be the most involved structure...

The origin of free cells in urine is difficult to determine in the absence of cellular casts. Using fluorescein-conjugated antibody to human Tamm-Horsfall protein (THP), it examines THP coating of free cells in urine (THP-CFC), that could be distinguished between renal parenchymal disease (RPD) and lower urinary tract disease (LUTD). We had examined THP-CFC in urine of the patients with all kinds of RPD, renal or ureteral stone (RUS) and LUTD. The percentage of THP-CFCs was 0% in healthy volunteers (n = 34), 0-8% in LUTD group (n = 14), 86...
