Introduction: Fibroadenosis and mastalgia are common among the women in reproductive age group. Treatment for these conditions is not yet standardised. Most of the drugs used for fibroadenosis and mastalgia are expensive and have side effects. Aim: To find out the efficacy of centchroman, a Selective Estrogens Receptor Modulator (SERM) on regres...

Epidermal cysts also known as epidermoid cysts, is one of the common benign tumours presenting anywhere in the body. However, epidermal cyst in the penis is very rare. This condition in children is usually congenital due to abnormal embryologic closure of the median raphe; hence, it is termed as median raphe cysts (MRCs). Penile epidermal cysts may...

The term ‘AINHUM’ is derived from the African word meaning ‘to saw or cut’. True ainhum otherwise called dactylolysis spontanea is a condition involving soft tissue or digits with constricting rings commonly presenting in fifth toes, usually bilateral. It is to be differentiated from Pseudo-ainhum that occurs secondary to some hereditary and nonher...

Internal hernia is herniation of a viscus, usually in the small bowel, through a normal or abnormal aperture within the peritoneal cavity. Its incidence has been reported to be one to two per cent. Internal hernias are classified based on location, and the hernial orifice can be either congenital or acquired. Paraduodenal hernias are the most commo...

The incidence of congenital bilobed gall bladder is 1 in 3000 to 4000. A Phrygian cap is a congenital abnormality of the gallbladder with an incidence of 4%. Preferred mode of diagnosis for Phrygian cap is cholescintigraphy and multi phase MRI, as Ultrasonography and CT are not always conclusive. The estimated prevalence of gallstone disease in Ind...

Background: The suprascapular notch, a depression on the lateral part of the superior border of the scapula, medial to the coracoid process, is bridged by the superior transverse scapular ligament, which is sometimes ossified and the foramen which is thus completed, transmits the suprascapular nerve to the supraspinatus fossa. Variations in the mor...

... Paraduodenal hernias are considered to be the most common type of congenital internal hernias, and they are found in about 1-2% of the population. They are more common in males, and they usually present with SB obstruction between the fourth of sixth decades of their lives [66][67][68][69]. Three variants have been reported in literature; left, right and middle, with the left variant being the most common in 75% of the cases [69]. ...
... The main carcinogenic factors for eyelid cancer are represented by UV exposure mostly during childhood and adolescence, fair skin, increased age, immunosuppression, and smoking (3,4). Overall, tobacco is considered the main carcinogenic factor for 16% of all cancers in developed countries; in less developed regions, it accounts for around 10%. ...
... Almost similar observation was seen in some previous study by Rajswaroob et al. 17 and Neogi P et al. 21 and Nirhale et al. 8 There are some limitations of our study. ...
... They may also arise from the sequestration of epidermal rests during embryonic life, occlusion of the pilosebaceous unit, or traumatic implantation of epithelial elements[2]. Its differential diagnoses include dermoid cyst, teratoma, urethral diverticulum, glomus tumor, pilonidal cyst and epidermal cyst, and steatocystoma[4]. Epidermal cysts contain keratinized materials surrounded by keratinized squamous epithelial cells. ...
... The word "Ainhum" derived from the Nago word (Brazil) meaning 'fissure' or the Yoruba word (Nigeria) meaning 'to saw or cut' is a relatively rare idiopathic skin disease [1]. This scarce dermatological pathology is characterized by an insidious development of a firm constricting band or ring on any phalange (finger or toe) leading to spontaneous auto-amputation, permanent deformities, physical handicaps and psychological trauma in severe cases [2][3][4]. Likewise, it may present as chronic fissuring, ulceration or infection at the base of the fifth toe [5]. ...
... This is a hernia of the small intestine through the transverse mesocolon. 10 According to the relative position of the recess and the ascending duodenum, middle mesocolic hernias are classified into two types: Landzert hernias and Waldeyer hernias. The incidence of LPDHs is higher than that of RPDHs by about 3:1, 11 and the incidence is higher in male than female patients. ...
... In terms of clinical presentation, patients present indistinguishable from acute cholecystitis without Phrygian cap. 1,2 The diagnosis is established on imaging. ...
... Because most of the rotator cuff muscles are innervated by the suprascapular nerve, damage to this nerve can result in an indicative rotator cuff impairment of functioning (Ofusori et al., 2008). There are reports of these cases among other populations like India, Germany, and Nigeria (Kannan, 2014), (Natsis et al., 2007), (Ofusori et al., 2008) but there are no such reports amongst Ugandans and the whole East Africa region. Therefore, the present study intends to document a case of the absence of a suprascapular notch in the scapula bone of Kampala International University, Uganda. ...
