We present the case of a 29-year-old male from the southern part of India presenting with renal stones, pancytopenia with leukoerythroblastic blood picture, diagnosed on bone marrow (BM) aspiration smears as BM oxalosis. Although it is a rare disorder, BM oxalosis should be considered and BM aspiration and biopsy should be performed in patients presenting with renal stones, pancytopenia with leukoerythroblastic blood picture. Early diagnosis of patients affected by hyperoxaluria is associated wi...

Moreover, parents' economic hardship/financial distress, school closures, lack of peer interactions, loneliness, and home confinement may affect a child's mood state and emotional well-being in...
The “heart sign” is a well-described radiological sign in bilateral medial medullary infarction, which is a rare stroke syndrome. It has also been rarely reported in infarction of bilateral paramedian pons and caudal paramedian midbrain. Bilateral brainstem infarcts usually present with varying degree of quadriparesis and in the initial stages, it is difficult to distinguish from other conditions such as Guillain–Barre syndrome and brainstem encephalitis. Recognizing the “heart sign” on magnetic...

Perhaps in no other area of neurosurgery, has a greater research been done as in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Despite this, TBI remains one of the biggest killers around the world and especially in India. Decompressive craniotomy still remains one of the mainstay paradigms in the management of TBI. The following article explores several new modalities of treatment, and these include the role of beta-blockers for TBI, updates on decompressive craniotomy, the results of DECRA and RESCUEicp trials...
COVID-19 disease is of mild severity in most children. The common symptoms include fever, sore throat, cough, nasal congestion, diarrhea, and vomiting. Prompt testing of suspect cases with rapid antigen test and/or reverse transcription–polymerase chain reaction in nasopharyngeal swabs is recommended. The routine use of computed tomography (CT) scan should be discouraged. For children with mild disease, only symptomatic therapy is required. Red flag signs include persistent high fever, breathles...
