[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Adenomatous neoplasia or glandular tumours in the ear are very rare to occur. We are reporting two patients who presented with polypoid mass in external auditory canal of whom one patient was diagnosed to have ceruminous adenoma of external auditory canal and the other adenomatous carcinoma of middle ear based on histopathology findings of biopsied specimen. Review of available literature shows that both ceruminous adenoma of external auditory canal and adenocarcinoma of middle are very rare to occur and are even difficult to diagnose histopathologically. We would like to emphasize the importance of considering even such rare pathologies while evaluating aural polyps.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Ear and nose foreign bodies are common problems affecting the children but adults are not an exception. A prospective study involving 87 patients is undertaken concentrating on presentation of patients with various types of ear or nasal foreign bodies. In the present study common presenting complaints and uncommon presentation scenarios encountered by us like a nasal foreign body with intra cranial complications, an impacted middle ear foreign body with mastoiditis is discussed. The present article emphasizes the need of considering presence of foreign bodies even in the absence of appropriate clinical signs and symptoms suggestive of a foreign body in ear or nose.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Leaf anatomy of 13 species of Indian mangroves belonging to 11 genera and 9 families of the dicotyledons is presented. Leaves
are dorsiventral in all the species except inLumnitzera racemosa where they are isobilateral and amphistomatic. The cells of the lower epidermis are larger than those of the upper surface.
Stomatal type and size are considered. Water storage tissue is present in all the species exceptAegialitis rotundifolia. The significance of the findings are highlighted in light of the earlier available information and a key is constructed
based on the leaf anatomical characters.
