Fine needle aspiration cytology of pilomatrixoma
Bansal Cherry,Handa Uma,Mohan Harsh
Journal of Cytology , 2011,
Abstract: Aim : To delineate and characterize the cytomorphologic features of pilomatrixoma (PMX) helpful in correct diagnosis of the lesion on fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). Materials and Methods : Archival records of clinical findings, FNAC and histopathological reports of PMX cases were analyzed. Aspirate findings in 14 cases of PMX were correlated with detailed clinical data and subsequent histopathology on excisional biopsy. Different morphological findings were graded semiquantitatively from 0 to 3+. Results : The series showed female preponderance, with head and neck being the commonest site. Majority patients had a single tumor with mean size of 1.6 cm. Out of 14 biopsy proven cases of PMX, cytology findings revealed PMX in 7 cases on the basis of ghost cells, groups of basaloid cells, squamous cells in combination with multinucleated giant cells and calcium deposits in a background of debris. The main reasons for erroneous diagnosis were predominance of one component over the others and non-representative aspirated material. Conclusions : The cytological features of PMX are characteristic and allow a conclusive diagnosis provided the smears are examined keenly bearing in mind the diagnostic traps that can mislead a cytopathologist.
Role of fine needle aspiration cytology in diagnosis and -management of thyroid lesions: A study on 434 patients

Journal of Cytology , 2008,
Abstract: Objectives: To evaluate the results of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in the diagnosis and management of thyroid lesions. Materials and Methods: A review was conducted of FNAC of diffuse or nodular thyroid lesions performed on 434 patients over a period of three years. The cytological results were correlated with clinical features, biochemical investigations, and subsequent histopathological examination and management of the patients. Results: The most frequently encountered lesion was the colloid goiter in 250 (57.60%) cases followed by thyroiditis in 119 (27.41%) cases, ten (2.30%) adenomatous goiters and two (0.004%) thyroglossal cysts. In the neoplastic group, 14 (1.38%) cases were reported as follicular/Hurthle cell neoplasms and 17 (3.91%) as malignant tumors. When compared with the clinical diagnosis, FNAC proved to be an improvement on the diagnosis of thyroiditis and malignancy when compared with that of goiter. FNA revealed a sensitivity of 97%, a specificity of 100%, a positive predictive value of 96% and a negative predictive value of 100%. Conclusions: FNAC is a minimally invasive, highly accurate and cost-effective procedure for the assessment of patients with thyroid lesions. It also helps in differentiating lesions that require surgery from those that can be managed otherwise.

Multiple myeloma presenting as bilateral orbital proptosis
Malik Archana,Narang Subina,Handa Uma,Sood Sunandan
Indian Journal of Ophthalmology , 2009,
Abstract: A 58-year-old-man presented with painful rapidly progressive bilateral proptosis with restricted ocular movements of 15 days duration. There was history of significant weight loss in the recent past. Computed tomography scan of the head and orbit revealed bilateral multiple, well-defined, round, soft tissue masses, isointense with muscles in intraconal and extraconal space. Fine needle aspiration cytology and incision biopsy from the lesion, urine for Bence-Jones proteins and immunofixation clinched the diagnosis of multiple myeloma. Skeletal survey did not reveal any bony involvement. The diagnosis of multiple myeloma should be kept in mind in cases of bilateral proptosis. Bony involvement is not universal in cases of orbital myeloma. Early diagnosis can be established with extensive biochemical and histopathological investigations and timely treatment is life saving for these patients.

Newer trends in the management of psoriasis at difficult to treat locations: Scalp, palmoplantar disease and nails
Handa Sanjeev
Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology , 2010,
Abstract: Psoriasis is a common, chronic, inflammatory disease with a wide range of clinical presentations. The disease severity ranges from mild to severe. Plaque type of psoriasis is the most common. A number of factors like previous treatment history and comorbid conditions influence the treatment of psoriasis in an individual patient. Location of the lesions is also an important consideration. Psoriasis localized to certain areas of the body like scalp, nails, palms and soles remains difficult to treat. These sites have been referred to as the difficult locations in literature. This article covers the management of psoriasis limited to these special areas.
Caregiver- Is There A Hidden Patient?

Indian Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation , 2009,
Abstract: In our routine practice it is not a uncommon site to attend to the patients attendants’musculoskeletal and psychological problems. The patients may be an in-patient or outpatient,attending hospital for rehabilitation or any other chronic diseases like CoronaryArtery Disease, cancer, depression, child hood disabling conditions etc. What we deal withis only the tip of the iceberg but deep down there lies the whole problem which as yet has notachieved much attention in the routine health care.
Software Quality Analysis by Object Oriented Approach in Design Phase Using UML
Anand Handa
International Journal of Computer Technology and Electronics Engineering , 2011,
Abstract: Software Quality is the degree to which a finished product conforms to its specifications. The earlier a fault is detected and is removed the easier it is to fix. Object oriented metrics focus on the combination of functions and data as an integrated object. Object oriented paradigm substantially improves productivity due to the effect of reuse. Requirement specifications, designs and test plans are all artifacts that could potentially be fully or partially be reused in different projects.Object O
