Article: Novel Method in the Treatment of Retracted Nipple. More evidence and patient acceptability required.The Indian Journal of Pediatrics 04/2013;
[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The authors report a case of previously healthy toddler who presented with acute sore throat that led to bacteremia, septic shock, disseminated intravascular coagulopathy, encephalopathy and pleural effusion. Magnetic resonance imaging and venogram showed thrombosis of the internal jugular vein. He was successfully treated with antibiotics and low molecular weight heparin. The authors review the literature and explore the presentation, management and the role of anticoagulation in this condition. To the authors’ knowledge, this is one of the youngest patient reports with this condition in the literature.The Indian Journal of Pediatrics 12/2012;
Article: Gaucher's disease[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: 1. The literature regarding Gaucher's discase is briefly reviewed. 2. Clinico-pathological findings of a fatal case of Gaucher's disease in an infant are recorded. 3. The predominant accumulation of galacto-cerebroside in the splcen observed on chemical analysis is commented upon. 4. While recognising the rarity of Gaucher's disease, the nced to bear the condition in mind at least in cases of obscure spleno-megalics is stressed.The Indian Journal of Pediatrics 05/2012; 25(9):466-474.

Article: Six-Minute Walk Test-Normal Values of School Children Aged 7–12 Y in India: A Cross-Sectional Study[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: ObjectiveTo establish normal reference standards for six minute walk test of children aged between 7–12y in India. MethodsHealthy children aged between 7 to 12y were recruited randomly from the selected schools in India. 400 children were included .Six minute walk test (MWT) was performed according to standardized ATS guidelines. Distance walked in 6min, Heart rate (HR), Blood pressure (BP), Oxygen saturation, anthropometric measurements and level of dyspnea were taken as outcome measures. ResultsMean distance walked in 6min was 609 ± 166m, with significant difference between boys and girls( p < 0.001). Boys covered more distance than girls. Heart rate increased from a baseline of 82.73 ± 1.63 to a maximum of 104.32 ± 3.11; heart rate recovery occurred at 5min in both the genders. SBP increased from baseline 109 ± 2.38 to maximum of 121.86 ± 1.75 at the end of the test, with no significant increase in DBP which was 68.51 ± 2.21 and 69 ± 2.78 at the end of the test. No significant change in oxygen saturation and dyspnea was observed during the test. Mean oxygen saturation was 97% at baseline, with an immediate drop of 96%. ConclusionsIn this study, the mean distance covered in 6min by boys was 670.74 ± 86.21m and girls were 548.93 ± 44.78m.

Article: Meningitis in childhood[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: (1) This article records observation and management of 60 cases of meningitis in children and infants. (2) Purulent meningitis is prevalent in 7/8 months old infants, tuberculous meningitis in the age of 1 to I1/2 year. Below 6 months purulent meningitis is most common. (3) Purulent meningitis is more common in male than female. (4) Mortality rate of tuberculous meningitis is 100 per cent. and that of purulent meningitis 43.5% depending upon the early institution of treatment. (5) Schemes of the treatment of meningitis have been discussed.The Indian Journal of Pediatrics 04/2012; 20(1):15-24.
Article: Subcutaneous nodules in rheumatism[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: 1. The Indian lierature on the incidence of rheumatic infection, rheumatic heart disease and rheumatic nodules has been reviewed. 2. A clinical study on rheumatic nodules based on 181 cases of juvenile rheumatism has been presented. 3. The incidence of rheumatic nodules is 82%. From a comparison of the corresponding figures of different workers in different countries it appears that acute rheumatism in Bengal, if not in India, follows closely that in the temperate zones, namely, Europe and U. S. A. Its essential clinical features including the occurrence of subcutaneous rheumatic nodules, are also similar.The Indian Journal of Pediatrics 04/2012; 10(2):41-59.
Article: Lactic acid milk in the tropics[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The technique of preparation of lactic acid milk from fresh and evaporated milk is given in detail. It is an artificial infant food which present many advantages, especially in the tropics. It is highly recommended, especially when such artificially prepared food is supplied from a central milk kitchen. The central distribution of lactic acid milk to infants of poor parents in the tropics who bring their children to the infant welfare centres must be regarded as indispensable. Infants partially breast-fed, can have additional food at an inconsiderable cost.The Indian Journal of Pediatrics 04/2012; 6(2):108-111.
Article: Refractory Anemia as a Presenting Feature of Microscopic Polyangitis: A Rare Vasculitis in Children[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Microcytic anemia refractory to usual supplementation is an important clue to an alternative diagnosis. Accompanying pulmonary and renal involvement during the disease course suggests a multisystem disease. Small-vessel vasculitis should be suspected in any patient who presents with a multisystem disease that is not caused by an infectious or malignant process. Among these, antineutrophilic cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA)-associated vasculitis is a distinct subclass involving anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) as the common pathogenesis. Microscopic polyangiitis is a rare form of such vasculitis in children characterized by pulmonary-renal syndrome with pauci-imune rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis and a poor outcome.
