ConclusionPrimary sternoclavicular tuberculosis is rare condition and requires a high index of suspicion for an early diagnosis. A focused sternoclavicular MRI and early biopsy may help in timely diagnosis. Early commencement of ATT has overall good clinical and functional results.

By SAURABH JHA, MD Clever Hans Preetham Srinivas, the head of the chest radiograph project in Qure.ai, summoned Bhargava Reddy, Manoj Tadepalli, and Tarun Raj to the meeting room. “Get ready for an all-nighter, boys,” said Preetham. Qure’s scientists began investigating the algorithm’s mysteriously high performance on chest radiographs from a new hospital. To recap, the algorithm had an area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC) of 1 – that’s 100 % on multiple-choice question test. “Someone leaked the paper to AI,” laughed Manoj. “I...

By SAURABH JHA, MD Slumdog TB No one knows who gave Rahul Roy tuberculosis. Roy’s charmed life as a successful trader involved traveling in his Mercedes C class between his apartment on the plush Nepean Sea Road in South Mumbai and offices in Bombay Stock Exchange. He cared little for Mumbai’s weather. He seldom rolled down his car windows – his ambient atmosphere, optimized for his comfort, rarely changed. Historically TB, or “consumption” as it was known, was a Bohemian malady; the chronic suffering produced a rhapsody which produced fine art. TB was fashionable in Victorian Britain...

This study was undertaken to evaluate the results, efficacy and safety of this technique.MethodsDeformity correction of 16 patients was done during January 2012 to December 2014. All patients underwent posterior only approach for vertebral column resection at peri-apical region, posterior instrumentation with pedicular screws and anterior reconstruction using mesh cage. Postoperative X-ray films were evaluated. All patients were followed up at six weeks, 12 weeks, 18 weeks, six months and yearly thereafter. At follow-up patients were evaluated neurologically and radio-graphically.ResultsMean age of the patients was 19.43 y...

tska LB Abstract Recent analyses of the Canadian fluoroscopy cohort study reported significantly increased radiation risks of mortality from ischemic heart diseases (IHD) with a linear dose-response adjusted for dose fractionation. This cohort includes 63,707 tuberculosis patients from Canada who were exposed to low-to-moderate dose fractionated X-rays in 1930s-1950s and were followed-up for death from non-cancer causes during 1950-1987. In the current analysis, we scrutinized the assumption of linearity by analyzing a series of radio-biologically motivated nonlinear dose-response models to get a better understand...

Conclusions: TB screening among socially vulnerable citizens is feasible and can identify TB thereby possibly reducing its spread. Future TB screening should primarily focus on sputum analysis. Identification of comorbidities resulted in additional investigations and early diagnosis of e.g. cancer.

Objective: to identify the results of immunological tests in children with tuberculosis infection.Material and methods: 73 patients with positive results of the skin test with tuberculous recombinant allergen (TRA) from 1 to 17 years old were examined at Saint-Petersburg TB dispensaries 2, 5, 14, 16 during 2015-2018.Diagnostic Complex Included: clinical, immunological (tuberculin skin test (TST), T-SPOT.TB (T-SPOT), bacteriological and X-rays methods (computed tomography). All patients were divided in 2 groups: I (34) - with positive results of T-SPOT, II (39) - with negative results of T-SPOT.Results: The age of the patie...
