Bringing The Spotlight Back on Primary Care!

241

In a high-flying and fast-moving world, with access to an ocean of information on any subject under the sun with just the click of a button, we have seen a rise in several Google doctors, WhatsApp gurus and internet healers.

The information they seek may lead them to a Pandora’s box of medical terminologies and graphic images that will leave them overwhelmed, confused, and most of all anxious to the point that they may end up experiencing new symptoms that were not there in the first place.

Early Diagnosis And Preventive Measures For Autism

242

Post lockdown, I see a number of parents in my OPD who bring their child with a delay in the social or language milestones. The one question that arises in these parents; minds is ‘Can my child have autism?’ Here, I try to discuss a few points related to autism- early diagnosis and prevention.

Early Post-Operative Rehabilitation Improves Outcome In Spine Surgery

244

When a 53-year-old male was rushed to our spine department at late hours of the day with pain in the upper back and sudden onset of weakness in both legs and numbness below chest level, there was a lot of anxiety and panic among the patient’s family. An urgent MRI done within 30 minutes of admission showed destruction of thoracic vertebral bone with pus severely compressing the spinal cord. In the next 30 minutes, the patient was shifted to the operating theatre, and surgery was done to stabilize the spinal bone, let out the pus and relieve the spinal cord compression. This timely emergent intervention is vital as the initial 8 hours is the golden period to avoid permanent paralysis.

A large number of women attend gynaecology clinics with vaginal discharge. And an equally large group ignores this symptom, which can be an indication of a serious health condition. Vaginal discharge can sometimes be normal or physiological. For instance, women can have a clear discharge during ovulation, prior to periods and during sexual intercourse.
