Community response to artemisinin-based combination therapy for childhood malaria: a case study from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
Vinay R Kamat, Daniel J Nyato
Malaria Journal , 2010, DOI: 10.1186/1475-2875-9-61
Abstract: Participant observation, six focus group discussions in two large villages, followed by interviews with a random sample of 110 mothers of children less than five years of age, who were diagnosed with malaria and prescribed ALu. Additionally, observations were conducted in two village dispensaries involving interactions between mothers/caretakers and health care providers.While more than two-thirds of the mothers had an overall negative disposition toward SP, 97.5% of them spoke favourably about ALu, emphasizing it's ability to help their children to rapidly recover from malaria, without undesirable side-effects. 62.5% of the mothers reported that they were spending less money dealing with malaria than previously when their child was treated with SP. 88% of the mothers had waited for 48 hours or more after the onset of fever before taking their child to the dispensary. Mothers' knowledge and reporting of ALu's dosage was, in many cases, inconsistent with the recommended dosage schedule for children.Deployment of ALu has significantly changed community level perceptions of anti-malarial treatment. However, mothers continue to delay seeking care before accessing ALu, limiting the impact of highly subsidized rollout of the drug. Implementation of ACT-based treatment guidelines must be complemented with educational campaigns to insure that mothers seek prompt help for their children within 24 hours of the onset of fever. Improved communication between health care providers and mothers of sick children can facilitate better adherence to ALu's recommended dosage. Community level interpretations of anti-malarials are multifaceted; integrating knowledge of local beliefs and practices surrounding consumption of anti-malarials into programmatic goals can help to significantly improve malaria control interventions.In December 2006, Tanzania implemented new malaria treatment guidelines requiring the large scale deployment of Coartem? (Novartis), a fixed-dose artemether/lumefantr
Ehlers-Danlos syndrome with parathyroid adenoma for excision
S Kamat, C Deepa, J Fernandes
Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia , 2012,
Abstract: Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) consists of a group of connective tissue disorders characterised by hyperelasticity of the skin and hypermobile joints. Parathyroid adenoma results in increased parathyroid hormone secretion. We report the case of a 20-year-old male patient with EDS and parathyroid adenoma, who underwent surgery to excise the tumour. A thorough preoperative evaluation, stabilisation, and necessary precautions and monitoring during the intraoperative period, ensured an uneventful postoperative period.

Necrotizing myelitis in an immunocompetent child : a case report with review of literature.
Parmar R,Bavdekar S,Sira P,Kamat J
Indian Journal of Medical Sciences , 2003,
Abstract: A few cases of necrotizing myelitis have been reported in adults since its first description in 1973. No case has been described in the pediatric age group. A 12-year-old boy, who presented with acute flaccid paraplegia, loss of sphincter control and sensory loss showed features suggestive of necrotizing myelitis on magnetic resonance imaging. Investigations carried out could not reveal a specific etiological or pre-disposing factor. No clinical improvement occurred despite the therapy.

Chloroquine induced parkinsonism.
Parmar R,Valvi C,Kamat J,Vaswani R
Journal of Postgraduate Medicine , 2000,
Abstract: A case of parkinsonism is reported in a 5-years-old male child following prolonged use of chloroquine. The patient presented with reduced spontaneous movements and speech with an expressionless face and a parkinsonian gait but no tremors. His investigations including CT scan brain, CSF study and serum ceruloplasmin were normal. Chloroquine was discontinued and the patient was started on oral trihexyphenidyl. The patient showed gradual recovery and the drug was successfully withdrawn. The toxic manifestations were only transient and reversible.

A ten-year histopathological study of generalised lymphadenopathy in India
GC Kamat
South African Family Practice , 2011,
Abstract: Background: Lymphadenopathy is a rather common clinical finding in a primary healthcare setting, and may be due to inflammatory lesions and tumours. Correlation between clinical findings and laboratory data is essential in arriving at a diagnosis. This study was undertaken to study the histopathology of generalised lymphadenopathy in India, as well as the demographics of the study population. Method: This study was conducted for a period of 10 years (August 1997-July 2007), of which eight years were retrospective, from August 1997-July 2005, and two years were prospective, from August 2005-July 2007. The source of data for this study was patients seeking medical attention, who, on clinical examination, were found to have generalised lymphadenopathy. A representative node was excised for histopathology. Tissues were routinely processed, stained with haematoxylin and eosin, and examined by means of light microscopy. Results: Of the 244 lymph node biopsies analysed in this study, 75 cases (30.73%) were reactive lymphadenitis, 142 cases (58.19%) showed granulomatous lymphadenitis, one case (0.40%) was Hodgkin’s lymphoma, eight cases (3.27%) were non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and 18 cases (7.37%) were metastatic malignancy. Conclusion: In this study, the most common cause of generalised lymphadenopathy was granulomatous lymphadenitis, followed by reactive lymphadenitis. Among the neoplastic lesions, metastatic malignancy accounted for most cases.
