Dr. Vasanthi Vidyasagaran takes a line from a memorable poem by Thomas Gray, A flower born to blush unseen, to give us a haunting story of a mother who lost her child and had the courage to launch “Family Support’ so that such tragedy would not strike another mother.

Dr Manoj writes a special guest editorial, in honour of a remarkable case report by Dr. Deep Chand on the EPS page: “VT storm post-STEMI”

Three interesting case reports follow in quick succession- from Dr. Kiran Petkar, Dr. Kathiazhagan Stalin and Dr. Vigneshwar Prashanth Umapathy

Dr. Chockalingam honours the KAUVRIAN greatly, by accepting our request to Write the Talk; he gives us the highlights of the talk he delivered on Total knee replacements, at Salem.

Dr. Subbaiah also honours us by accepting our request to comment on a press release on “If we can procure and maintain a supply of stem cells, BMT costs are likely to drop”

Dhasa continues his series on medical statistics with “Probability Distribution of Bernoulli Trials”.
