Introduction: Perinatal asphyxia is a major cause for neonatal mortality and morbidity around the world. The reduction of O 2 results in the generation of reactive oxygen species which interact with nucleic acid and make alteration in the structure and functioning of the genome. We studied the effect of therapeutic hypothermia on chromosomes with karyotyping. Subjects and Methods: Babies in the hypothermia group were cooled for the first 72 h, using gel packs. Rectal temperature of 33–34°C was m...

OBJECTIVE: To study the effect of therapeutic hypothermia (TH) on deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) damage and the neurodevelopmental outcome in term babies with perinatal asphyxia. METHODS: Babies in the hypothermia group were cooled for the first 72 h, using gel packs. Rectal temperature of 33-34°C was maintained. Blood sample was collected before, at 36 h and after completion of TH for assessment of comet assay and 8-hydroxy2-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG). Infants were followed up till 12 months. RESULTS...

When the scalp exhibits folds and furrows resembling gyri, it is termed as cutis vertices gyrata. The case reported was an eight year old girl who had cutis vertices gyrata localized to the occipital region of the scalp since birth. The underlying pathology was neurofibroma.
Reticulate acral and flexural pigmentary disorders are a rare group of pigmentary genodermatoses. We report a family showing a combination of features described in the two disorders; reticulate acropigmentation of kitamura (RAPK) and Dowling Degos disease, along with palmoplantar keratoderma. We speculate that RAPK and DD are part of a spectrum of reticulate pigmentary disorders with varied phenotypic expression.

: A 9-year-old boy, the third child of nonconsanguinous parents, presented with asymptomatic, solid, raised skin lesions over the upper back. They first appeared at the age of 4 years. Gradually similar lesions appeared over the chest, neck, arms, and thighs. On examination, he had firm, hypopigmented to skin-colored papules and nodules which coalesced to form ridges in a reticular pattern (pebbling of the skin) and were arranged bilaterally and symmetrically over the scapulae, pectoral region o...
