  • Pattern of Precipitating Causes of Diabetic Ketoacidosis in A Tertiary
           Care Hospital of Bangladesh

    • Authors: Muhammad Abdur Rahim, Rozana Rouf, Ashraf Uddin Ahmed, Khwaja Nazim Uddin, Zafar Ahmed Latif
      Pages: 3 - 6
      Abstract: Background: Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is an established presenting feature of type 1 diabetes mellitus, but infection and non-compliance to anti-diabetic treatment remain the major precipitating causes of DKA among diagnosed diabetic patients. This study was designed to evaluate the precipitating causes of DKA occurring among adult patients.Methods: This cross-sectional study was done in Bangladesh Institute of Research and Rehabilitation in Diabetes, Endocrine and Metabolic Disorders (BIRDEM) General Hospital, Dhaka, Bangladesh from 2008 to 2011. Diagnosed adult DKA cases were consecutively and purposively included in this study. Patients were evaluated clinically and by laboratory tests aiming at identification of precipitating causes along with management.Results: Total patients were 200 with slight female (56%) predominance. Mean age of the study subjects was 37.6±7.5 years. Incidence of DKA was more in known diabetic patients (71%), more among rural population (53%) and low income group (76.5%). Infection (45.5%) was the commonest precipitating cause followed by non-adherence to anti-diabetic therapy (31%). Acute pancreatitis (5%), acute myocardial infarction (2%), stroke (1%) and surgery (1.5%) were less common causes and etiology could not be identified in 14% cases. Severe acidosis (pH < 7) was less common (8.5%). Neutrophil leukocytosis was present in 87% cases. Mortality was 6.5%.Conclusion: Over two-thirds of DKA cases were precipitated by infection and non-compliance to anti-diabetic treatment in this study. In a significant number of cases, no cause could be identified. Acute pancreatitis appeared as an important cause of DKA in this study.Bangladesh J Medicine Jan 2018; 29(1) : 3-6

      Pages: 7 - 12
      Abstract: Background: Diabetes mellitus is one of the most widespread endocrine disorder in female and its complications are increasing all over the world, leading to life threatening medical problems like cardiovascular diseases, stroke and end stage renal diseases. An association between hypertension and diabetes mellitus has been identified.Objectives: The study was carried out to observe the association of hypertension with diabetes mellitus in adult female subjects.Methods : This cross sectional study was conducted in the Department of Physiology, Dhaka Medical College, Dhaka, during the period of January 2011 to December 2011. A total number of one hundred female subjects were selected with age ranging from30 to50 years. Among them 50 diabetic female subjects were included from out-patient department of Endocrinology, Dhaka Medical College Hospital, Dhaka as study group(B) and 50 apparently healthy female were taken as control group(A) for comparison. Fasting serum insulin level was measured by ELISA method in the Department of Laboratory of National Institute of ENT, Dhaka and fasting blood glucose was estimated by glucose oxidase method in Department of Dhaka Medical College in both groups. Systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure of all participants were recorded by standard method. Data was analyzed by Unpaired Student’s- test and Pearson’s correlation co-efficient (r) test as applicable.Results: The value of fasting serum insulin level was significantly higher in diabetic subjects than those of non-diabetic subjects. Fasting blood glucose level was significantly higher diabetic patient in comparison to those of non-diabetic subjects. In diabetic subjects fasting serum insulin and fasting blood glucose levels were higher and showed positive correlation with systolic and diastolic blood pressure.Conclusion: Present study revealed that systolic and diastolic blood pressure has positive relationship with fasting serum insulin and fasting blood glucose levels.Bangladesh J Medicine Jan 2018; 29(1) : 7-12

      Pages: 13 - 25
      Abstract: Introduction: Rockall score is used for risk assessment in acute upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage for intervention and prediction for risk of rebleeding and mortality.Methods: This is a cross sectional hospital based observational study carried out among patients presented with haematemesis with or without melaena in the department of Medicine, Dhaka Medical College Hospital from April, 2013 to March 2014 in one hundred consecutive cases. Rockall score done before and after endoscpy.Results:Patients mean age found 45.12±14.9 years with 4:1 male to female ratio. Service holder were (26.0%) and 91.0% were married. Almost half (48.0%) was educated. Combined haematemesis and melaena was presenting feature in 62.0% patients among them 72.0% arrived in hospital within 24 hours of onset. Comorbidity was found in 42.0% cases and 13% took NSAID. Oesophageal varix was found in 25.0%. No death observed in 18% haematemesis patients, one died from melaena (1 of 5) but most died (4 out of 5) from combined haematemesis and melaena. All the 5 death occurred in 89% rebleeding cases. No death observed in 34% patients having pre endoscopic Rockall Score d” 2; as well as in 44% cases post endoscopic Rockall score d”5 score. Mean duration Hospital stay was 6.36±4.5 days.Conclusions: Rockall score is useful in predicting outcomes in acute upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage.Bangladesh J Medicine Jan 2018; 29(1) : 13-25

  • Clinical study on rabies prone animal bite

    • Authors: Mohammad Mahfuzul Hoque, Farhana Akter, BUM Wahid Ahmed, Sheikh Mohammad Noor E Alam, Robed Amin, MA Faiz
      Pages: 26 - 30
      Abstract: Introduction: Rabies is almost invariably fatal zoonotic disease, it can be prevent well with proper management of wound and rabies prophylaxis. This study aims to describe the pattern of rabies prone animal bite, to observe the trends of management and relationship with socioeconomic condition of victims.Method : This is an observational study. Data was collected from patients presenting with animal bite or attendants on structured case record form at Infectious Disease Hospital, Dhaka and emergency department of Mitford Hospital from 1st to 27th February 2010. Patients with category II &III bite were followed up 3 months over phone to observe the outcome.Results: A total 235 animal bite victims attending at Infectious Disease Hospital and Mitford Hospital were enrolled in study. Young patients, around 49.79% population within 18 years age group; male (82.98%) was more affected and mostly from low socioeconomic condition. Dog bite (91.06%) was predominant by stray dogs (94.89%) Exposure was mainly bite (83.82%), which were unprovoked (95.75%) and category – III(86.81%). Local wound care was minimal (wash with soap – 28.93%) and use of nerve tissue and cell culture vaccination was 81.70% and 18.29% respectively.Conclusion : Predominant rabies prone animal bite is stray dog. Victims after bite took ineffective nerve tissue vaccine while missing important rabies immunoglobulin due to economic constraints. The prevention of animal bite need to be addressed for prevention of rabies in Bangladesh.Bangladesh J Medicine Jan 2018; 29(1) : 26-30

  • COPD Guidelines: Old Gold versus New Gold

    • Authors: HAM Nazmul Ahasan, Homayra Tahseen Hossain
      Pages: 31 - 35
      Abstract: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a major cause of chronic morbidity and mortality throughout the world. The Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) is an international committee of experts who periodically update the knowledge on the diagnosis and management of COPD since 2001. This year 2017, the GOLD initiative published the 5-year update on the diagnosis and management of COPD.This review article mainly highlights the differences between old GOLD versus new GOLD guideline. Compared to the previous version, this documents has been an extensively revised: the definition has been simplified, highlighting the importance of respiratory symptoms, and disease development is further discussed, including new insights on lung development. Spirometry is no longer included in the ABCD tool, which is now centered exclusively on respiratory symptoms and history of exacerbation. Subsequently, pharmacologic treatment has been shifted towards a more personalized approach. For the first time, GOLD proposes escalation strategies. Preference is given to LABA/LAMA (long-acting beta-agonist/long-acting muscarinic antagonists) combinations over LABA/ICS (long-acting beta-agonist/inhaled corticosteroid) combinations as a mainstay of treatment.Bangladesh J Medicine Jan 2018; 29(1) : 31-35

  • Vaso-occlusive retinopathy and stage IV Lupus Nephritis; Primary
           manifestation of a 30 year old female

    • Authors: Tasnuva Saiful, Quadrat E Elahi, Mamun Mostafi, Abdul Ali Mia
      Pages: 36 - 40
      Abstract: The diagnosis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) depends on clinical evidence of renal, rheumatologic, cutaneous, and neurologic involvement, supported by serological markers. Ocular involvement is not included in diagnostic criteria of SLE. Vaso-occlusive retinopathy, as the primary manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), is relatively rare. We report a 30-year-old female, who suddenly suffered bilateral visual loss. Fundus examination revealed bilateral occlusive retinal vasculitis. She fulfilled the American College of Rheumatology criteria for diagnosing SLE; she had arthralgia, photosensitivity, positive ANA, high titre of anti-dsDNA, and proteinuria. A renal biopsy showed stage IV lupus nephritis. Treatment was initiated with pulse steroid and immunosuppressant. Best corrected visual acuity of both eye improved to finger counting after treatment. This case demonstrates that in patients with severe vaso-occlusive retinopathy, a generalized immunological disorder, like SLE, should be suspected.Bangladesh J Medicine Jan 2018; 29(1) : 36-40

  • Acute Lung Fibrosis Following Paraquat Poisoning

    • Authors: Aparna Das, Naziha Sabah Neera, Forhad Uddin Hasan Chowdhury, Md Azizul Kahhar
      Pages: 41 - 44
      Abstract: Paraquat is a potentially toxic herbicide that is used to eradicate common weeds. It is classified as a moderately hazardous (grade 2) pesticide by World Health Organization (WHO). Poisoning by paraquat carries significant mortality. It has an inclination to accumulate in lungs accelerating pulmonary fibrosis. We present a case report of a young man who accidentally ingested a mouthful of paraquat and subsequently developed fibrosis of lungs.Bangladesh J Medicine Jan 2018; 29(1) : 41-44

  • Dengue Expanded Syndrome: An unusual presentation

    • Authors: Quazi Tarikul Islam, Homayra Tahseen Hossain, Md Abulkashem Khandaker, HAM Nazmul Ahasan, Maksudul Majumder, Tajnuva Jabeen
      Pages: 45 - 47
      Abstract: Dengue fever is a mosquito borne viral infection found in tropic & sub-tropic regions. The symptomatic dengue infection follows an uncomplicated course; however, unusual manifestations of this disease are now being increasingly reported as expanded dengue syndrome which incorporates wide spectrum of uncommon presentation of this common disease which does not fall into either dengue shock syndrome or dengue hemorrhagic fever. We report a case of a 30 year old lady who presented with high grade fever, rash, diffuse abdominal pain & vomiting, who ultimately developed shock and features of multi organ failure. We diagnosed her as a case of expanded dengue syndrome with multi organ failure ( hepatitis with very high transaminase levels, pancreatitis, acalculous cholecystitis, coagulation failure & acute kidney injury) with septicaemia. With prompt diagnosis and aggressive management, this potentially fatal patient was cured.Bangladesh J Medicine Jan 2018; 29(1) : 45-47
