Abstract : Amitraz is acaricide and insecticide for cattle. Poisoning with Amitraz is often confused as organophosphorus (OP) poisoning or carbamates poisoning as Amitraz poisoning has a several clinical features that mimics OP poisoning. Signs like bradycardia, constricted pupils, hyperglycemia, increased respiratory rate are common. A 17 years old female, brought to ER with alleged history of (h/o) con- sumption of Amitraz in an unconscious state i.e.Glasgow Coma Sore (GCS) of 3/15. Patient was intu- bated immediately in view of low GCS and later was shifted to medicine ICU. Management of the patient was a difficult task as very less data and studies are available and there is unavailability of any specific antidote. However, confirmation of Amitraz poisoning is done after retrieval of container. Early clinical evaluation and detail history from both patient and informant is a key for successful management and ex- cellent outcome of treatment..

Abstract : Diabetes is associated with angiopathy and neuropathy. Both these issues can impact the inner ear and can result in hearing loss. Presbycusis contributes to hearing loss in elderly, however this effect may be more pronounced in diabetic patients. To compare hearing deficit in diabetics with non-diabetics. The study comprised of 30 diabetics and 30 nondiabetics who were age and sex matched. Informed consent was obtained prior to start of the study. Those with other co-morbid conditions impacting hearing capacity were excluded. Hearing profile was obtained, and mean hearing loss was compared between the 2 groups. There was significant difference between the 2 groups regarding hearing capacity. Diabetic patients had a more pronounced hearing loss when compared to nondiabetics and had higher number of bilateral hearing loss subjects. 60% of diabetics had some degree of hearing loss compared to 26.67% amongst nondiabetics. Diabetics should be screened for hearing as they are more prone to have hearing deficit..

Abstract : Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is defined as rapidly progressive necrosis of subcutaneous tissues and deep fascia planes resulting in superficial skin gangrene and severe systemic infection. Although rare, when it sets in it rapidly progresses and is associated with more morbidity and mortality. The mortality rate of the same ranges from 8.7% to 76% with median value 32.2%. Timely and appropriate intervention is required to decrease morbidity and mortality. This was a prospective study of 100 cases of Soft Tissue Infections admitted during the period August 2018 to March 2020. Patients with Soft tissue infections satisfying inclusion criteria, attending Surgery OPD were included. Data was entered in proforma, tabulated and analysed using software package of statistical analysis (SPSS 17.0). The mean age was 52.3 years. Diabetes mellitus was the most common co-morbidity (40 cases). 76% of patients were categorized as low risk 12% as intermediate risk and 12% as high risk for progression to Necrotizing Fasciitis. 44 Patients of low-risk category had their soft tissue infection improved with IV antibiotics, anti- inflammatory measures, limb elevation, surgical debridement and skin grafts. 10 patients of Intermediate risk were improved and there was no morbidity or mortality. 6 patients in High-risk category improved with multiple surgical debridement along with graft application, 4 Patients required amputation, 2 were dead. Early diagnosis of necrotizing fasciitis is essential to advocate timely management for the better wellbeing of patient. LRINEC -score is based on routine laboratory investigations that are readily available, at most centres that can help distinguish Necrotizing Fasciitis from other soft tissue infections..

Abstract : The health status and health services utilization pattern may vary among men and women. Women in developing countries underutilize healthcare services due to various barriers. This study aims at identifying the pattern of healthcare service utilization among women and the barriers to healthcare service utilization. A cross-sectional descriptive survey was carried out among 123 rural women. Questionnaires on socio-demographics, patterns of utilization of healthcare services, and barriers to healthcare service utilization were used. The study findings showed that the majority of the women were between 41 – 60 years of age, were married and were homemakers. The pattern of utilization of healthcare facilities showed that 89.4% utilized private healthcare facilities, whereas 10.6% utilized public health facilities. Among the private healthcare facilities used, 42.3% visited the private hospital, and 43.9% visited the private clinics. The percentage of women who did not check cholesterol, blood pressure, blood glucose, and undergone gynaecological examinations at any time were 46.3%, 24.3 %, 28.5 % and 50.4%, respectively. The commonly perceived barriers for utilization of healthcare facilities were; getting permission from the family to visit the doctor (64 %), not wanting to burden the family financially (63%), having a caretaker role in the family (63%), embarrassing physical examination (62%), the stigma associated with a disease (62%), difficulty in transportation (61%), lack of belief in the treatment process, lack of health insurance and language barrier (60%). The study concludes that though there are healthcare facilities available, there are individual, community, and facility-related barriers influencing the utilization of healthcare services..

Abstract : Multiple system atrophy is a rare progressive neurodegenerative disorder also known as synucleinopathies, due to abnormal accumulation of alpha-synuclein protein in several parts of brain including basal ganglia, inferior olivary nucleus and cerebellum. It affects 5 per 1,00,000 people, age of onset is 55-65, incidence more in males than female, ratio (1.3 :1). Multiple system atrophy presents as parkinsonism like symptoms and ataxia. Due to autonomic dysfunction patient may have orthostatic hypotension, loss of sweating, impotence, urinary retention and incontinence. Old classification includes striatonigral degeneration (SND), olivopontocerebellar atrophy (OPCA), and Shy-Drager syndrome. But current classification based on predominant symptoms at time of evaluation of disease. 1) MSA- P, parkinsonian variant in that extra pyramidal features are predominately seen also termed as striato nigral degeneration. 2) MSA- C, cerebellar ataxia is predominant also termed as olivopontocerebellar atrophy..
