April 2010

April is a hot, the temperatures go up steadily hovering around the early 40's. This year has been unseasonably hot and there is hope that the rains in June would be good. A thunderstorm brought the temperatures down for a couple of days but in the process uprooted a number of trees.

Divya 3 years


Divya - Post Operative
Divya presented to the RHC with colicky pain abdomen, vomiting, abdominal distension. Clinically there was diffuse tenderness, guarding in the right hypochondrium and flank, gurgling and increased bowel sounds. A small mass was felt in the same region.
Initial diagnosis of Intestinal Obstruction ? Due to Intusseption/Volvulus was made. The child was referred to St Johns Medical College, where a surprise awaited all.


The baby had a retroperitoneal terratoma, which had stretched the Inferior Vena Cava and Right Renal artery and vein. She was operated, and the tumour removed.  

 The tumour weighed 1.8 kg and was confirmed to be a TERRATOMA with multiple levels of maturity.

Divya has made a full recovery and is now doing well.

The end of the financial year means more work what with audit and other requirements. This does not make a difference to the patients who keep pouring in.

January 2010

We welcome the new year and hope it brings sunshine and happiness to all people

We added a new semi automatic analyser to the laboratory. Made by Vital Diagnostics Australia, it was funded by friends, alumni of AFMC and some well wishers. This has helped us do many more biochemical tests in our laboratory itself and saves the trouble of patient samples being sent to Madanapalle or other laboratories.

December 2009

The last month of the year and yet another year goes past.
One wonders whether this wonderful country of ours will reap the benefits of liberalisation, will the fruits of economic reforms actually trickle down to those most needing it, will governmental systems actually deliver? These are eternal questions as one continues to deal with the mass of humanity needing medical care.
