Disseminated tuberculosis presenting as mesenteric and cerebral abscess in HIV infection: case report
Pandit, Vinay;Valsalan, Rohith;Seshadri, Shubha;Bahuleyan, Shibu;
Brazilian Journal of Infectious Diseases , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-86702009000500014
Abstract: disseminated tuberculosis in hiv infection involves multiple organs. pulmonary and lymph node involvement are the commonest form of tuberculosis in hiv infection [1, 2]. other forms of tuberculosis in the absence of lung and lymph node involvement are rare. various forms of abdominal [3, 4] and neurological [5, 6] tubercular involvement in hiv infection have been reported. but tuberculosis presenting simultaneously with mesenteric and brain abscess has not been reported yet. we report a case of disseminated tuberculosis presenting as mesenteric and cerebral abscess in a hiv case without involving lung and lymph nodes. bone marrow smears and fine needle aspiration cytology (fnac) from mesenteric lesion were positive for acid fast bacilli (afb) and the diagnosis of tuberculosis was confirmed by positive polymerase chain reaction (pcr). he responded well to treatment with anti tubercular drugs.
A case of organophosphate poisoning presenting with seizure and unavailable history of parenteral suicide attempt
Pandit Vinay,Seshadri Shubha,Rao S,Samarasinghe Charmaine
Journal of Emergencies, Trauma and Shock , 2011,
Abstract: Organophosphate (OP) poisoning is common in India. Only few case reports of parenteral OP poisoning have been described. We report a case of self-injected methyl parathion poisoning, presenting after four days with seizure, altered sensorium, and respiratory distress which posed a diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma. Despite nonavailability of history of OP poisoning, he was treated based on suspicion and showed a good clinical response to treatment trial with atropine and pralidoxime, and had a successful recovery. Atypical presentations may be encountered following parenteral administration of OP poison, and even a slight suspicion of this warrants proper investigations and treatment for a favorable outcome. Persistently low plasma cholinesterase level is a useful marker for making the diagnosis.
Late postpartum preeclampsia with posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome
Kauntia Ritesh,Valsalan Rohith,Seshadri Shubha,Pandit Vinay
Indian Journal of Medical Sciences , 2009,
Abstract: Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome is a reversible syndrome characterized by headache, seizures, altered mentation, and loss of vision associated with white matter changes on imaging. We report here a 27 year-old lady three weeks postpartum, presenting with posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome. She was treated successfully with antihypertensives and showed dramatic improvement. This condition is important to recognize and needs to be treated promptly to prevent morbidity and mortality in pregnancy and postpartum.
End-of-life care in the Indian context: The need for cultural sensitivity
Shubha R
Indian Journal of Palliative Care , 2007,
Abstract: End-of-life care requires dealing with challenging issues along various dimensions - physical, psychological, social and cultural. In addition to physical care, the importance of mental healthcare for patients at the end of life is now clearly recognised. However, there is much less awareness about the cultural factors that are involved in end-of-life care. Sensitivity to these factors is essential to providing high quality care and satisfaction to patients. In India, patients come from varied backgrounds. Their end-of-life needs differ according to their belief systems and values relating to life and death in general. In turn, these are influenced by the position they occupy along various dimensions, such as class, religion, caste, community, language, gender, to name a few. Moreover, cultural variations in attitudes and values have important practical implications for individuals making crucial medical decisions. It is therefore important for medical, paramedical and mental health professionals to be cognizant of these factors so as to provide effective and satisfying end-of-life care to patients. This paper discusses some of the issues in providing culture-sensitive care, using examples from the Indian context.

Bulk Viscous Anisotropic Cosmological Models with Generalized Chaplygin Gas with Time Varying Gravitational and Cosmological Constants  [PDF]
Shubha Kotambkar, Gyan Prakash Singh, Rupali Kelkar
Natural Science (NS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ns.2015.76035
Abstract: This paper is devoted to studying the generalized Chaplygin gas models in Bianchi type III space- time geometry with time varying bulk viscosity, cosmological and gravitational constants. We are considering the condition on metric potential \"\". Also to obtain deterministic models we have considered physically reasonable relations like \"\" , and the equation of state for generalized Chaplygin gas given by\"\" . A new set of exact solutions of Einstein’s field equations has been obtained in Eckart theory, truncated theory and full causal theory. Physical behaviour of the models has been discussed.
Progeria: Too Old, Too Soon
Madhumathi Seshadri
Pharmaceutical Reviews , 2007,
Abstract: Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) is a rare paediatric syndrome causing physical changes that resemble greatly accelerated aging in sufferers.Currently, there are less than 50 known cases of HGPS in the world and most progeria patients die at around 13 years of age. HGPS is caused by a mutation in the Lamin A gene (LMNA) that results in the synthesis of a mutant prelamin A (also called progerin). Progerin undergoes farnesylation but cannot be further processed to mature lamin A, a key structural component of the cell nucleus. In HGPS cells, progerin accumulates at the rim of the nucleus, causing misshapen nuclei.DescriptionDr. Jonathan Hutchinson in 1886 and Dr. Hastings Gilford in 1904 first described this syndrome. The word progeria is coined from the Greek word geras, which means old age. Progeria syndrome is also known as Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome, HGPS or Gilford syndrome.
Inherited Arrhythmias in Children
Seshadri Balaji
Indian Pacing and Electrophysiology Journal , 2008,
Abstract: As our ability to discover new genetic mutations has increased, the list of inherited arrhythmias grows with each year. Virtually every form of arrhythmia has an inherited form, whether it is bradycardia, tachycardia or arrhythmic sudden death. This paper will therefore only focus mainly on those that are clinically most important in children.
