Acute autoimmune hepatitis mimicking metastatic liver disease: A case report
Ibrahim Masoodi,Khalid Alsayari
World Journal of Hepatology , 2012, DOI: 10.4254/wjh.v4.i7.234
Abstract: We report progressive painless jaundice in a 39 year old female with a suspicion of metastatic liver disease on ultrasound and computed tomography scan of the abdomen. Although the most frequent liver lesions are liver metastasis because of dual blood supply of the liver and the impact of hormones, the index case proved to have acute autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) after liver biopsy was undertaken. AIH, an unresolving inflammation of liver, occurs predominantly among females worldwide. It may present acutely and even fulminant hepatitis has been described. The index case had a dramatic response to steroid treatment with total recovery and complete resolution of liver lesions. She is clinically fine and has been regularly attending our clinic for the last year. To our knowledge from a Medline search, this is the first report where AIH was seen to mimic metastatic liver disease.
A case of gastric polyposis in antral area of stomach following prolonged proton-pump therapy
Alqutub, Adel Nazmi,Masoodi, Ibrahim
GMS German Medical Science , 2010,
Abstract: We describe the clinical scenario of a young male with history of non ulcer dyspepsia who had endoscopic evidence of gastric polyposis in antral area. The polyps disappeared four months after proton pump inhibitors were stopped. Proton pump inhibitors have been linked to gastric fundal polyposis and not antral gland polyposis. This is the first report originating from an Asian country describing antral gland polyposis (AGPs) in a patient on long-term PPI therapy with no evidence of Helicobacter pylori. A case report with brief review is presented.
Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis as the first presentation of CNS tuberculosis: report of a case with brief review
Masoodi, Ibrahim,Farooq, Omar,Ahmad, Iqbal,Bhat, Mohammad Yaseen
GMS German Medical Science , 2010,
Abstract: Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) also known as post infectious encephalomyelitis is a demyelinating disease of the central nervous system (CNS) that typically presents as a monophasic disorder associated with multifocal neurological symptoms and disability. It may follow vaccination in children or infection. Viral infection like measles, rubella, influenza, Epstein bar, HIV, herpes, cytomegalusvirus (CMV) and West Nile virus have been implicated in the causation. Among bacteria, group A hemolytic streptococcus, mycoplasma pneumonia, Chlamydia, Rickettesia and leptospira have been shown to cause ADEM. There are few reports of ADEM due to tuberculosis (TB). We describe acute disseminated encephalomyelitis due to tuberculosis in a 35 year old female who initially started with neuropsychiatric manifestations and later developed florid neurological deficit and classical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) lesions suggestive of the disease. The patient recovered completely after antitubercular therapy and is following our clinic for the last 12 months now.

Masoodi, Ibrahim,Al-Qurashi, Hesham,Alfaifi, Abdulaziz,Albishri, Jamal
GMS German Medical Science , 2013, DOI: 10.3205/000176
Abstract: [english] We describe diffuse colonic calcification detected on CT scan of the abdomen in a young female patient who presented to our clinic with vague intermittent abdominal pain of four weeks duration. Her investigative profile was normal and her colonoscopy did not reveal any mucosal changes. Colonic calcification has been known to occur mostly as a result of ischemic phenomenon but the index case had no such features or any other predisposing factor. The patient is currently symptom-free and is following our clinic for the last 8 months. After the review of literature and thorough investigations her colonic calcification remains unexplained. [german] Wir berichten über eine diffuse Kalkeinlagerung im Colon einer jungen Frau, die beim CT des Abdomens entdeckt wurde. Die Patientin wurde wegen unklarer, wiederholt auftretender Bauchschmerzen von 4 Wochen Dauer in unserer Klinik vorgestellt. Die allgemeine Untersuchung ergab einen regelrechten Befund, bei der allgemeinen Colonoskopie wurden keine Mucosa-Sch den gefunden. Verkalkungen im Colon wurden bisher als Folge von Isch mien angenommen, aber im vorliegenden Fall gab es keine derartigen Hinweise oder andere pr disponierende Faktoren. Die Patientin ist derzeit frei von Beschwerden und wird von unserer Klinik seit 8 Monaten überwacht. Nach Durchsicht der Literatur und gründlicher Untersuchung bleibt die Ursache der Verkalkung im Colon nicht erkl rbar.
Biomarkers in the management of ulcerative colitis: a brief review
Masoodi, Ibrahim,Tijjani, Bashir M.,Wani, Hamidullah,Hassan, Nadeem Syed
GMS German Medical Science , 2011,
Abstract: Several attempts have been made in the last two decades to investigate ulcerative colitis (UC) patients during the natural course of the disease so as to identify appropriate surrogate markers of disease activity. Most patients with quiescent inflammatory bowel disease have low grade inflammation and it is possible that relapse occurs only once the inflammatory process crosses a critical intensity. Since inflammation is a continuous process, its direct assessment may provide us a quantitative pre-symptomatic measure of imminent relapse. If substantial, it may allow targeted treatment early, to avert relapse or formulate newer therapeutic strategies to maintain symptomatic remission. It is clinically very important to identify these patients at a subclinical stage, noninvasively, by various biomarkers. Biomarkers help to gain an objective measurement of disease activity as symptoms are often subjective. Biomarkers also help to avoid invasive procedures which are often a burden to the patient and the health care system. If an ideal biomarker existed for UC, it would greatly facilitate the work of the gastroenterologist treating these patients. Both “classical” and “emerging” biomarkers of relevance for UC have been studied, but the quest for an ideal biomarker still continues. In this brief review we describe various biomarkers of clinical importance.
Bee sting therapy-induced hepatotoxicity: A case report
Adel Nazmi Alqutub,Ibrahim Masoodi,Khalid Alsayari,Ahmed Alomair
World Journal of Hepatology , 2011, DOI: 10.4254/wjh.v3.i10.268
Abstract: The use of bee venom as a therapeutic agent for the relief of joint pains dates back to Hippocrates, and references to the treatment can be found in ancient Egyptian and Greek medical writings as well. Also known as apitherapy, the technique is widely used in Eastern Europe, Asia, and South America. The beneficial effects of bee stings can be attributed to mellitinin, an anti-inflammatory agent, known to be hundred times stronger than cortisone. Unfortunately, certain substances in the bee venom trigger allergic reactions which can be life threatening in a sensitized individual. Multiple stings are known to cause hemolysis, kidney injury, hepatotoxicity and myocardial infarction. The toxicity can be immediate or can manifest itself only weeks after the exposure. We describe hepatotoxicity in a 35-year-old female, following bee sting therapy for multiple sclerosis. She presented to our clinic 3 wk after therapy with a history of progressive jaundice. The patient subsequently improved, and has been attending our clinic now for the last 9 mo.
Laparoscopic exploration of the common bile duct and removal of dead worm in a patient of cholangitis after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography failure
Chalkoo Mushtaq,Masoodi Ibrahim,Hussain Shabnum,Chalkoo Shaheena
Journal of Minimal Access Surgery , 2009,
Abstract: We describe a dead ascaris-induced extrahepatic bilary obstruction in a young female who presented with acute cholangitis. The dead ascaris was removed by laparoscopic exploration of common bile duct after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography failure. Patient had an uneventful hospital course after the procedure and was discharged afebrile after 3 days of hospital stay.
Second-Order Duality for Continuous Programming Containing Support Functions  [PDF]
Iqbal Husain, Mashoob Masoodi
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/am.2010.16071
Abstract: A second-order dual problem is formulated for a class of continuous programming problem in which both objective and constrained functions contain support functions, hence it is nondifferentiable. Under second-order invexity and second-order pseudoinvexity, weak, strong and converse duality theorems are established for this pair of dual problems. Special cases are deduced and a pair of dual continuous problems with natural boundary values is constructed. A close relationship between duality results of our problems and those of the corresponding (static) nonlinear programming problem with support functions is briefly outlined.

Abstract: [english] Biliary parasitosis is one of the important causes of biliary obstruction in endemic areas, however due to migration and travel the disease is known to occur in non endemic zones as well. The spectrum of biliary fascioliasis ranges from recurrent biliary colics to acute cholangitis. The long term complications are gall stones, sclerosing cholangitis and biliary cirrhosis. We describe fascioliasis as a cause of recurrent biliary colics in a young male necessitating multiple hospitalizations over a period of four years. Investigative profile had been non-contributory every time he was hospitalized for his abdominal pain prior to the current presentation. He never had cholangitis due to the worm in the common bile duct. It was only at endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) biliary fascioliasis was discovered to be the cause of his recurrent biliary colics. After removal of the live from the common bile duct he became symptom free and is attending our clinic for last 11 months now. Clinical spectrum of biliary fascioliasis is discussed in this report. [german] In endemischen Gebieten ist der Parasitenbefall von Galleng ngen eine h ufige Ursache für Gallenkoliken. Aufgrund von Migration und Reiset tigkeiten kommen derartige Erkrankungen auch au erhalb endemischer Gebiete vor. Das Spektrum der Symptome bei Gallengangsfasciolose erstreckt sich von wiederholten Gallenkoliken bis zur akuten Cholangitis. Als Langzeitkomplikationen werden Gallensteine, sklerosierende Cholangitis und bili re Zirrhose beschrieben. Wir berichten über eine Fasciolose als Ursache für Gallenkoliken bei einem jungen Mann, der über vier Jahre mehrfach wegen Gallenkoliken station r behandelt wurde. Das Untersuchungsprofil brachte bisher jedes Mal keinen Erfolg, wenn er station r wegen Bauchschmerzen aufgenommen wurde. Er hatte vorher niemals eine Cholangitis auf der Basis eines Befalls mit dem Leberegel. Nur durch endoskopisch retrograde Cholangiopankreatikographie (ERCP) wurde die bili re Fasciolose als Ursache für die wiederholten Gallenkoliken entdeckt. Nach Entfernen der lebenden Fasciola hepatica aus dem Gallengang wurde der Patient, nunmehr seit 11 Monaten, symptomfrei. Das klinische Spektrum der bili ren Fasciolose wird in diesem Bericht diskutiert.
Analysis of casein alpha S1 & S2 proteins from different mammalian species

Bioinformation , 2010,
Abstract: Nowadays, the quality of any food used for human consumption is, to a considerable extent, considered by its possible contribution to the maintenance or improvement of the consumer's health. In developed countries there is increasing interest in goat milk and its derivates, the quality of which is considered of special importance in the light of current tendencies favouring healthy eating. In particular, goat’s milk is a hypoallergenic alternative to cow’s milk in the human diet. In the present work, we studied the casein alpha S1 and S2 proteins of cow, goat and sheep for comparative analysis. We found that the amino acid sequence of these proteins is almost same in goat and sheep but there are several changes at different base pairs when these two sequences are compared with cow. Prediction of secondary structures (GOR) was performed for alpha s1 and s2 proteins to gain functional insights. Our in silico study revealed considerable identity in chemical properties between goat and sheep but a considerable dissimilarity in cow with goat and sheep casein proteins. Moreover, the effect amino acid change on secondary structures in the three species is discussed. There was no significant difference found between goat and sheep alpha S1 and S2 proteins, so naturally both will be having same properties. The study concludes that sheep milk is another convenient alternative for the cow milk allergic children.
