Annu Nanda, Nidhi Gupta, Sangeeta Lamba, Divya Sethi
Detection of adult gravid filarial worm in fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) smears is unusual despite the high incidence of this parasite in endemic zones. Bancroftian filariasis presenting as subcutaneous nodules is very rare, and only a few cases are reported in literature. In spite of various reports stating the presence of microfilaria using aspiration cytology in various sites, the presence of an adult gravid filarial worm in subcutaneous nodules by FNAC is an extremely rare finding. We hereby report an unusual case of detection of adult gravid worm of Wuchereria bancrofti on FNAC of a subcutaneous nodule in the axilla...

Hymenolepis diminuta , also known as rat tapeworm, infects humans uncommonly. The diagnosis is based on the demonstration of characteristic eggs in the feces. We present a case report of H. diminuta infection in a 6-year-old female child from an urban area of India who presented with fever and seizures and also had complaints of intermittent abdominal pain, vomiting, and loss of appetite, without an apparent history of contact with rodents. The infection was treated with albendazole and showed clinical and parasitological cure...

Hydatid cyst is a zoonotic disease caused by the cestode Echinococcus granulosus. Humans are incidental intermediate host. Liver and lungs are most common sites involved in hydatid cyst. Spleen, kidney, central nervous system, thyroid, breast are other rare sites. Here we present a unique case of a 48 yr female having isolated hydatid cyst of spleen, with the cyst having ruptured into the splenic flexure of colon.

Zoonotic filarial infections particularly dirofilariasis have been reported worldwide. The route of transmission to human beings is vector-borne through mosquitoes. Increased mosquito activity subsequent to global warming has influenced the transmission of dirofilarial infection in many geographic regions, including Asia. Dirofilariasis presents as mucocutaneous and pulmonary infections. Dirofilarial infections rarely manifest in the oral and perioral region and can pose to be a diagnostic challenge to clinicians...

Strongyloides stercoralis is one of the most important helminths causing neglected tropical diseases. Its ability to cause autoinfection can lead to chronic infections and hyper infection, especially in autoimmune cases and prove to be highly fatal. We report a case of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) having hepatitis-B coinfection, who presented with rash all over the body, recurrent nausea, vomiting, cough, loose stool, and joint pain for 1 month and was later on found to be infected with S. stercoralis ...

Filariasis is a major health problem of the tropical and subtropical regions, but filariae are also found in temperate climates. The disease is endemic all over India and microfilariae have been observed as coincidental findings with inflammatory conditions and neoplastic lesions. We report a rare case of a 40-year-old female from a nonendemic area presenting with lump in the left breast. The skin overlying the mass was fungating and ulcerated. Ipsilateral axillary lymph nodes were palpable. Fine-needle aspiration cytology revealed highly cellular smears having ductal epithelial cells arranged in groups, tight clusters, and scattered singly...

Vaibhav Kumar Varshney, Subhash Chandra Soni, Taruna Yadav, Ashok Puranik, Poonam Elhence
Entamoeba histolytica infection can lead to colitis, peri-colic abscess, ameboma, perforation and rarely colonic stricture. Amebic colitis is usually managed with medical management and rarely needs surgical management. We hereby report a case of colonic amebiasis, presenting as a stricture in transverse colon, mimicking malignancy, and managed successfully.

Runumi Chowdhury, Mayuri Gogoi, Anjan Sarma, Ajanta Sharma
We report here a case of human ocular thelaziasis that was discovered accidentally during cataract surgery. A 58-year-old farmer attended an eye camp for diminished vision of the left eye, which was diagnosed later on as cataract. He was referred to a tertiary care hospital in Assam. During the cataract surgery, two small, motile, chalky white, translucent worms were removed from the left fornix. They were identified as female Thelazia callipaeda . Rare occurrence of this disease and its association with both extra and intraocular manifestations leading to ocular morbidity is the rationale for presenting this case...

Flavia Caroll Muñiz-Pareja, Paul Adrian Iturbe-Espinoza
Background: Chaetogaster limnaei is an annelid symbiotically associated with lymnaeid snails as Galba truncatula . This association is considered a preventive mechanism against trematode miracidia infection, including Fasciola hepatica . The objective of this study was to determine the effectiveness of Chaetogaster limnaei as a natural controller of Fasciola hepatica in laboratory conditions. Procedures: Fascsola hepatica miracidia were inoculated in parallel into snails carrying Chaetogaster limnaei and snails without the annelid...

Background: Malaria is the most prevalent infectious diseases in the world. This study aims to assess the correlation of hepatorenal dysfunction in malaria patients in pediatric age group. Materials and Methodology: This study was conducted on patients of malaria admitted in the Department of Paediatrics, PBM hospital, Bikaner (Rajasthan), during resurgence of various outbreaks of malaria in the year 2011 and 2012. The diagnosis of malaria was confirmed by examination of thick and thin smear/optimal test; malarial hepatic and renal patients were included in the study...

Background and Objective: Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is one of the most important diseases worldwide, with a different range of prevalence in endemic areas. Anthroponotic and zoonotic CL are two epidemiological forms of CL, in Iran. Although Ilam Province in the west of Iran is one of the main endemic areas of the disease, there is no inclusive study to determine the genetic variations of parasite in these areas. The objective of this study was to determine the genetic diversity of Leishmania species in Ilam Province, using mini-circle kDNA gene...

REVIEW
Ardhendu K Maji
Resistance to almost all available antimalarial agents, particularly for Plasmodium falciparum , is an important issue throughout all malaria endemic countries. Recently, Plasmodium vivax also showed resistance to chloroquine in some part of the World. Monitoring efficacy of used antimalarial drugs plays an important role to determine the emergence of resistant power by the prevailing parasite population of a geographical area if any. There are four different methods for antimalarial drug efficacy study. In vivo therapeutic efficacy study remains the gold standard and provides primary data for formulating antimalarial drug policy by the National Malaria Control Programmes...

REVIEW
Hunny Sharma, Swati Verma
Achieving a place in the authorship of published scientific research is a matter of pride and fame associated with creativity, recognition, better evaluation, and financial gains. This had made assigning of authorship in a scientific publication, a complex and challenging issue. Gaining a position in authorship in scientific publications not only prompts or encourages authors to carry out more research but also recourse many of them to the unethical practice of different kinds of authorship abuses. These authorship abuses are done so cleverly and skillfully that neither the journal editors nor the readers of the journals realize that bias had crept in authorship of the publication...
