COVID-19 is a pneumonia-like disease caused by a new coronavirus, named SARS-CoV-2, that is similar to the virus that causes Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). To study the prevalence of adverse reactions of wearing PPE among healthcare workers in Karnataka India during the Covid -19 outbreak. Twenty-one-day observation were made on twenty laboratory health workers and observed hazardous skin effect on health workers wearing PPE long hours during working period. long hour wearing of PPE in our study found respiratory complications, sweating and skin damage. Adequate dermatological knowledge of PPE use and design and extensive comprehensive training is important in risk of pandemic outbreak.</p> Santosh M.

Dermoid cysts can be further subdivided into epidermoid , dermoid and teratoid cysts based on the lining epithelium and contents .We present an unusual case of 32 year old female who presented with a swelling in submandibular space, for whom an initial differential diagnosis of plunging ranula was made. The patient underwent an intraoral microscopic excision of tumor under GA following cytology and radiological investigations .Here we would like to stress the importance of multidisciplinary approach to the disease inorder to confirm the diagnosis, considering the manifold differentials and plan surgical approach. Furthermore, the benefits of undergoing an intra oral microscopic excision of the tumor, as it provides better cosmesis , functional outcome and reduced hospital stay.</p> Abhishek Bhardwaj, Areej Moideen, Arya V, Manu Malhotra, Madhu priya, Saurabh Varshney, Joyson Antony Xavier Copyright (c) 2020 Abhishek Bhardwaj, Areej Moideen, Arya V, Manu Malhotra, Madhu priya, Saurabh Varshney Sun, 25 Oct 2020 00:00:00 -0400 Role of topical cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) in the management of electric burns <p>Electric burns are known to be difficult in healing as well as wound management. Infection in such chronic wounds can be detrimental and hence needs to be controlled for faster improvement. These chronic wounds also lack various chemokines and growth factors and needs to be supplemented. This article highlights the role of topical cholecalciferol in the management of electric burns.</p> Neljo Thomas, Ravi Kumar Chittoria, Shijina K Copyright (c) 2020 Neljo Thomas, Ravi Kumar Chittoria, Shijina K Sun, 25 Oct 2020 00:00:00 -0400 Knowledge, Attitude and Practice on Hygiene and Sanitation among population of selected districts in Province No. 2, Nepal <p>Proper hygiene and inadequate sanitation has direct effect on health of individual, family, communities and nation as a whole. Provision of accessible, affordable and acceptable safe drinking water facility, optimum hygiene and sanitation to each and every individual of the world regarding to caste, ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status and geographical location is essential. Thus, the objective of this study was designed to assess knowledge, attitude and practice of hygiene and sanitation on population of selected districts of Province No. 2 in Nepal. Methods This descriptive cross sectional study was conducted from April to June 2019 in selected districts of Province No. 2, Nepal. 450 study participants were enrolled. Convenient sampling method was applied by designing standard structured questionnaire. Data was entered in SPSS 18 and p-value &lt; 0.05 was considered as statistically significant. Results The results of this study reflect 82.22% respondents had knowledge that most of the diseases are caused by the lack of sanitation whereas 51.11% were familiar that the disease are caused by the collection of water around house. 92% respondents had disagreed about open defecation, 96% respondents had agreed about hand should be washed after defecation and 82% respondents had agreed on nail should be trimmed at regular interval. All respondents had brushing habit, 67.78% respondents used brush in their brushing habit, 33.56% had daily bathing habit, 20% washed clothes daily and only 15.55% used soap for washing hands after handling cattle dung. Association between education and using toilet facilities was found to be significant (p-value &lt;0.05) but correlation between using toilet facilities and type of family among community people was statistically insignificant (p- value &gt; 0.05). Conclusion The overall knowledge, attitude and practice on hygiene and sanitation among study participants were better, good and satisfactory respectively. Environmental sanitation program, development of household wastes, water treatment procedures and safe water storage should be done in community system and awareness programs should be carried on a regular basis.</p> Khushbu Yadav, Basant Kumar Yadav, Satyam Prakash Copyright (c) 2020 Khushbu Yadav, Basant Kumar Yadav, Satyam Prakash Sun, 25 Oct 2020 00:00:00 -0400 Conventional radiograph V/S CT for evaluation of sagittal fracture of mandibular condyle: A Case report <p>Condylar fractures of mandible are not very easy to diagnose radiographicaly. If fracture is vertical, it would be much more difficult to diagnose. Since treatment depends on type of fracture, CT scan is advised rather than conventional radiographs to diagnose condylar fractures.The cases reporting to the hospital during the period of July 2019 to April 2020 were enrolled, of which 2 cases have been reported here. It was observed that there are chances of missing the diagnosis of the condylar fracture if only the conventional radiographs are used. CT along with conventional radiographs should be considered for better treatment and management of the patients with maxillofacial injuries.</p> Anandkumar S Sajjan, Roopa P Shahapur, Anand V Nimbal, Vikas C Desai Copyright (c) 2020 Anandkumar s Sajjan, Roopa P Shahapur, Anand V Nimbal, Vikas C Desai Sun, 25 Oct 2020 00:00:00 -0400
