Subcutaneous facial aspergillosis
M Madhavan, AL Aurora, KR Gupta, RN Sibal
July-September 1977, 23(3):140-142
Two cases of subcutaneous facial aspergillosis are being re­ported. As the overlying skin was healthy, the mode of localisa­tion of fungus remains unclear; because of peculiarity of clinical presentation the diagnosis was brought out only by histology. This mode of presentation has to be kept in mind in the predominantly agricultural communities in India.

Malabsorption in cirrhosis of the liver
RV Patwardhan, BD Pimparkar, JM Mehta, UK Sheth
July-September 1977, 23(3):112-117
Gastrointestinal function of absorption has been studied in twenty biopsy proved cases of cirrhosis of the liver. The gastro­intestinal function was assessed by means of glucose and lactose tolerance tests and by fecal fat, d-Xylose and Co 57 B 12 excretion tests. Steatorrhoea and lactose intolerance are common in cir­rhotics. The etiopathogenesis of this malabsorption in cirrhotics is discussed and appears multifactorial in origin.

Epsilon-amino-caproic acid in the treatment of menorrhagia
BC Mehta, DS Parekh
July-September 1977, 23(3):121-123
Epsilon-amino-caproic acid was used in 38 cases of menor­rhagia. In each patient details of bleeding were recorded for four consecutive menstrual periods. Drug was given during two alter­nate periods and the remaining two periods were considered as control periods. Number of days of bleeding and severity of bleed­ing were statistically significantly reduced by epsilon-amino-caproic acid. The drug was found to be safe and effective.

An evaluation of the prognostic indices in acute myocardial infarction
SJ Mishra, SC Sharma, SC Bandi, PK Periwal, BM Amin, NJ Shah, IJ Pinto
July-September 1977, 23(3):101-105
A prospective study of hundred patients of acute myocardial infarction admitted in the Intensive Cardiac Care Unit was carried out. The prognosis of each patient, immediate and delayed morta­lity, were assessed on admission by the coronary prognostic indices (C.P.I.) formulated by Peel, Norris and Chapman. The merits and drawbacks of each coronary prognostic index system are discussed. It is felt that the coronary prognostic index would be more accurate if a higher score is given to precursor, life threatening arrhy­thmias, and conduction defects, and the prognostic index is calculat­ed daily during the stay in the I.C.C.U.

Single versus divided doses of sintamil in depression
DR Doongaji, A Sheth, JS Apte, MR Datt, VK Mundra
July-September 1977, 23(3):106-111
Fifty one out-patient depressives were treated with Sintamil for a 5 week trial period under double-blind conditions. Sintamil 75 mg/day was administered in a fixed dosage schedule either as a single daily dose (SDS) or in 3 divided doses (DDS). There were no significant differences between the two treatment modali­ties in so far as efficacy was concerned. The SDS regimen of drug administration was associated with a lesser incidence of side effects.

Adrenocortical function in renal hypertension
RK Singh, DK Gupta, RC Singh
July-September 1977, 23(3):124-126
Adrenocortical functions in terms of urinary 17-ketosteroids (17-KS), 17-ketogenic steroids (17-KGS); 17-hydroxycortico­ steroids (17-OHCS) and aldosterone levels have been evaluated in 25 renal hypertensive patients in the present study. Urinary 17-­KS, 17-KGS and 17-OHCS were within normal limits; however, aldosterone was elevated markedly in all the patients of renal hypertension. Thus, it appears that there exist a relation between this salt retaining steroid and renal hypertension.
