Non-specific abdominal pain--a clinical entity.
SD Deodhar, RG Shirahatti, JD Mohite, MS Kirloskar, SV Pandya
April-June 1989, 35(2):86-9
A total of 48 cases of non-specific abdominal pain admitted in one year period were studied. Routine investigations of blood, urine, stool and X-ray examinations done after admission were negative. The pain was relieved in 48 hours time with analgesics and antispasmodics. During their follow-up in the out-patient department a variety of causes were discovered on investigations.

Profile of congenital cholesteatomas of the petrous apex.
CE DeSouza, CO Menezes, RA DeSouza, SB Ogale, MM Morris, AP Desai
April-June 1989, 35(2):93-7
Congenital cholesteatomas of the petrous apex are now frequently being approached by otologists. Involvement of the cerebello pontine angle by this lesion produces a myriad of signs and symptoms. Otological as well as neurosurgical literature is reviewed to achieve an overall understanding of the nature and behaviour of this uncommon but interesting lesion.

Comparative study of methods of detection of hepatitis 'B' surface antigen (HBsAg).
VV Parab, NN Talawadekar, VV Kale, SA Kamat
April-June 1989, 35(2):83-5
The serum samples were collected from 52 patients of acute viral hepatitis and 235 hospital staff from Kasturba Hospital for Infectious Diseases. HBsAg was detected in their sera by counter-immuno-electrophoresis (CIEP), reverse passive hemogglutination (RPHA) and by micro-enzyme-linked-immunosorbent assay (ELISA) technique. Among the patients, HBsAg was detected in 12 cases (23%) by CIEP, in 18 cases (34%) by RPHA and in 23 patients (45%) by ELISA. In the hospital staff, HBsAg was detected in 4 samples (1.7%) by CIEP, in 8 samples (3.5%) by RPHA and in 32 samples (13.5%) by ELISA. Thus ELISA was found to be the most sensitive technique in detecting HBsAg.

Anti-convulsant therapy in eclampsia.
JR Maheshwari, SV Desai, MD Hansotia, VR Walvekar
April-June 1989, 35(2):66-9
Seventy four patients presented with eclampsia at N.W.M. Hospital. Bombay. Among the patients with eclampsia, 64.9% were primis, 29.7% were gravida II-IV and 5.4% were grand multis. As many as 40.5% patients were less than 20 years of age, while 2.7% were over 30 years of age. 48.7% had antepartum convulsions, 40.5% had intrapartum convulsions, while 8 patients convulsed in the postpartum period. Besides standard management of eclamptic patients, 3 protocols of anticonvulsant therapy were utilised. 27% were managed with diphenyl hydantoin sodium, 43% with magnesium sulphate, and 30% by combination of diazepam and pentazocine. The maternal and perinatal outcome was evaluated. Control of convulsions was superior with magnesium sulphate while perinatal outcome was best with diphenyl hydantoin.

Post-puerperal Cu-T insertion : a prospective study.
AR Bhalerao, MC Purandare
April-June 1989, 35(2):70-3
One hundred and sixty eight consecutive women accepting copper T (CuT) intrauterine contraceptive device in the post-puerperal period were studied. Out of them, 63 could be followed after 6 weeks of insertion and 65 after 6 months of insertion. The risk of heavy bleeding, pain in abdomen etc. were no greater than those usually found when interval CuT insertion is carried out. There was no case of uterine perforation leading to migration of CuT. But the expulsion rate was found to be high i.e. 16.4%. CuT is a very useful post-puerperal contraceptive method and should be given more importance in MCH programme.

Chloramphenicol resistant Salmonella species isolated between 1978 and 1987.
NN Talawadekar, PJ Vadher, DU Antani, VV Kale, SA Kamat
April-June 1989, 35(2):79-82
During the ten year study i.e. 1978 to 1987, out of 53,251 cases of suspected enteric fever, S.typhi was isolated from 4005 cases (7%) and S.para typhi 'A' from 1108 cases (2.5%). A total of 52 strains of S. typhi and 4 strains of S.para typhi 'A' were found to be resistant to chloramphenicol. Minimal inhibitory concentration was greater than 256 micrograms/ml of all the strains of S.typhi and S.para typhi 'A'.

Littre's hernia in a child--an operative surprise (a case report).
KK Ravikumar, SS Khope, BP Ganapathi
April-June 1989, 35(2):112-3
The incidence of Littre's hernia in children is unknown. The diagnosis is usually made at operation or autopsy. One case in an eight month old infant is described. Heterotropic mucoglandular tissue causing nodularity and adhesions was noted in the diverticulum. Though histological findings in Littre's hernia are not mentioned in previous reports, we believe that Littre's hernia could often be associated heterotropic mucosa.

A new peridural needle-the 'LOLO' needle.
LK Delima, DF Delima
April-June 1989, 35(2):74-8
Peridural needles in present day use have a compromised function because of their circular cross section. An ideal peridural needle must be sharp to cut the spinal ligaments and at the same time blunt enough to ensure prevention of dural perforation. This ideal function is only possible if the bevel and tip of the needle are not inversely related as is the case in circular cross section needles. The 'LOLO' peridural needle developed by us is free of this compromise. It has a square cross section with a long, sharp eccentric tip. The bevel is flat and rectangular. The side opening is 4 mms from the tip of the needle through which the catheter is deflected out. Such a design is sharp to traverse the spinal ligaments and also effectively ensures dural tenting and prevent perforation. These properties have been proved by a myelographic study and compared to other conventional needles.

Variations in normal hepatobiliary scintigraphy in Indian population.
CB Bhatt, NB Kamdar, GH Tilve
April-June 1989, 35(2):63-5
Hepatobiliary scintigraphy was performed with Tc99m iminodiacetic acid (IDA) analog, in 100 apparently healthy adults, to study the variations in the normal hepatobiliary scintigraphy. Gall bladder (GB) was visualised in 43% at 15 min; 87% at 30 min, 90% at 45 min and 99% at 60 min and the small intestine (SI) was visualised in 24% at 15 min, 69% at 30 min, 76% at 45 min and 92% at 60 min. Left hepatic duct was prominent in 45%. Reciprocal relation between SI and GB was observed in 21%.

Idiopathic extensive spontaneous venous thrombosis (a case report).
AV Pathare, RR Patil, AA Chikhalikar, SG Dalvi
April-June 1989, 35(2):108-11
Two patients with extensive spontaneous venous thrombosis are reported. Both had documented evidence of polyserositis, transient abnormalities of liver function tests along with normal coagulograms. Although one patient had a short, self-limiting illness, the other required treatment with coumarin derivatives. The relevant literature is discussed.
