Production of Extracellular Virulence Factors By Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Isolates From Patients With Chronic Lung Disease - A Short Communication
M Thangam, S Rajendran, S Subramanian, C. N Deivanayagam
June 1987, 5(2):67-69
Sputa from 114 patients with chronic lung disease were analysed. Thirteen patients (11.4%) exhibited colonisation with Pseudomonas aeruginosa; 11 of these thirteen strains (84.6%) produced proteases, nine produced haemolysin (76.90%). Multiantibiotic resistance appears to correlate with production of extracellular virulence factors.

June 1987, 5(2):79-81
A case of fibrous mesothelioma of pleura in a boy aged 18 years is presented here because of its rarity and unusual pathological features. An intact mesothelial lining over the tumour warranted its designation as submesothelioma rather than mesothelioma.

Comparative Study Of Airway Obstruction And Reversibility Using Spirometry And Plethysmography
T. S Chatterjee, V. P Kolhatkar, S. R Kamat
June 1987, 5(2):77-78
A comparison of 34 stable asthmatics and 20 COPD patients for detecting airway obstruction and response to bronchodilator is reported. In COPD group, changes in Raw correlated well with FEV1 and MEFR but not in asthmatic group. For detecting significant bronchoreversibility there was no significant superiority of Raw over FEV1 and MEFR.

Methyl Isocyanate Survivors Of Bhopal - Sequential Flow Volume Loop Changes Observed In Eighteen Months Follow - Up
M. H Patel, V. P Kolhatkar, V. P Potdar, K. L Shekhavat, H. N Shah, S. R Kamat
June 1987, 5(2):59-65
One hundred and thirteen symptomatic victims of methyl isocyanate (MIC) toxicity were investigated by peforming maximal expiratory flow volume measurement sequentially for 18 months. Expiratory flows remained low and inspiratory flows declined. Abnormalities of the flow volume loop included saw tooth (12.3%). doming (16.5%), hesitation (25.8%) in inspiration and doming (30%) and concavity (53.6%) during expiration. The changes persisted despite improved spirometric values.

Renal Changes In Pulmonary Tuberculosis
A. G Abdulpurkar, M. G Desai, P. S Shankar
June 1987, 5(2):82-85
A histopathologic study of the renal tissue obtained by percutaneous needle biopsy was carried out in 35 subjects suffering from active pulmonary tuberculosis. 24 (68.5%) of them had proteinuria and 18 (51.5%) oedema. There was no evidence of renal tuberculosis. Four subjects (11.4%) exhibited tissue amyloidosis and it was associated with massive proteinuria and hypercholesterolaemia. Non-specific change in the form of cloudy swelling was frequent (20%). The renal involvement in some form or other was noted in 16 (45.7%) cases. Twelve subjects with proteinuria exhibited normal histology. Generally the renal lesions in pulmonary tuberculosis pursue a subclinical course and in majority they remain asymptomatic.
