Abstract : Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the world, oral chemotherapy is an increasingly important treatment option for cancer This study aims to determine the level of adherence to capecitabine and its contributing factors such as sociodemographic characteristics, side effect, and QALY (quality of life) among cancer outpatients. This study was cross sectional study conducted from March to May 2021 at a referral hospital in Yogyakarta. The participant was outpatients with capecitabine treatment, with colorectal or breast cancer in all stages, with a total of 135 patients. This study using the Medication Adherence Rating Scale (MARS) for measuring adherence and the EQ5D-5L dimension for measuring the quality of life. Data collected was analyzed by using SPSS. Correlation between adherence and characteristics of patient analyzed with bivariate analysis using the chi-square test. Patient adherence with capecitabine was 64.44%. There are some factors that are significant associated with adherence of patients like comorbidities, stage of cancer, the regiment of capecitabine, use of traditional medicine, experienced symptom, and quality of life. Meanwhile type of cancer did not have correlation with adherence of patient (p<0.05). Although no absolute adherence to oral capecitabine treatment had been observed, the level of adherence was fair. Health professionals, therefore, need a greater focus in monitoring the involvement of patients with oral treatment regimens. The results underline the importance of intensified multidisciplinary care to enhance adherence to capecitabine..

Abstract : Rickettsial diseases are vector borne diseases commonly affecting the travellers to endemic areas. Various systemic involvement has been reported. The incidence of central nervous system involvement has been increasingly reported due to the globalization and migrations. However, its diagnosis is becoming challenging due to its nonspecific presentation. Various types of rickettsial infections are prevalent in India. However, incidence of Rocky Mountain spotted fever is rare. Here we present a case of RMSF infection with CNS and ocular involvement..

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..
