Eventually, you will fall in love with book, BEWARE, don’t forget to stick to your theoretical too.

Suggestions to those who are looking forward to establishing a clinical understanding in Medicine are as follows:

  1. Read this book and carry it during the practicals and OPD. Have a quick look at the case studies quickly as you approach the patient with established diagnosis. You will feel more confident as you keep practicing this approach.
  2. Learn to make Doctor-Patient relationship and learn how to approach them, deal with different types of patients and how to interact with them with the common tongue.
  3. Learn how to examine different systems. If you don’t know how to do them, your diagnosis is going to be incomplete, you cannot always rely on lab reports and your seniors, do you?
  4. If you need help, following are some posts that can greatly help you in clinical wards. They have been made short but explained to the level of a medical student. These are:

Wilson ‘s Disease – Kayser Fleischer Rings


Wilson’s Disease or Hepatolenticular Degeneration is an autosomal recessive inherited disorder that causes increased accumulation of copper into organs. The typical sign of Kayser Fleischer Rings is very well pronounced as it appears as Rings at edges of cornea. It is one of the disorder one must be familiar with when reading Gastromedicine, apart from Hemochromatosis.


  • Total body copper content is ~125mg. Intake ≈ 3mg/day (absorbed in proximal small intestine). In the liver, copper is incorporated into ceruloplasmin.


  1. Kayser Fleischer Rings
  2. Liver dysfunction- deranged liver function tests, cirrhosis
  3. Behavioral- Personality changes with reduced performance
  4. Neurological- Ataxia, dysarthria, dystonia
  5. Azure Lunulae: Blue Nails, Haemolysis, Arthritis, Hypermobile joints, Grey Skin


  1. Urine: 24h copper excretion is high, e.g >100mcg/24h (normal <40mcg)
  2. Increased LFT: non-specific (but ALT >1500 is not part of the picture)
  3. Serum copper: typically <11μmol/L
  4. Decreased Serum ceruloplasmin: <200mg/L (<140mg/L is pathognomonic)—beware incidental low values in protein-deficiency states (e.g nephrotic syndrome, malabsorption)
  5. Molecular genetic testing can confirm the diagnosis
  6. Slit lamp exam: Kayser Fleischer rings: in iris/Descemet’s membrane
  7. Liver biopsy: Increased Hepatic copper (copper >250mcg/g dry weight); hepatitis; cirrhosis
  8. MRI: degeneration in basal ganglia, fronto-temporal, cerebellar, and brainstem
Kayser Fleischer Rings seen in Wilson Disease
Kayser Fleischer Rings seen in Wilson’s Disease or Hepatolenticular Degeneration are Golden to greenish-brown annular deposition of copper in periphery of the cornea (Descemet’s membrane).

More about Kayser Fleischer Rings

  • The Kayser-Fleischer Rings consist of copper deposits at periphery where the cornea meets the sclera, in Descemet’s membrane, first appear as a crescent at the top of the cornea. Eventually, a second crescent forms below, at the “six o’clock position”, and ultimately completely encircles the cornea.
  • Other causes of KF Rings are Cholestasis (Obstruction of the bile ducts), Primary Biliary Cirrhosis and Cryptogenic Cirrhosis
  • Diagnosis of KF Rings is usually done by Slit lamp examination. They become visible by naked eyes in later stages.Diagnosis of KF Rings is usually done by Slit lamp examination. They become visible by naked eyes in later stages. 


  1. Avoid foods with high copper content (eg liver, chocolate, nuts, mushrooms, legumes, and shellfish).
  2. Lifelong Penicillamine (500mg/6–8h PO for 1yr, maintenance 0.75–1g/d)
  3. In Acute Liver Failure or Cirrhosis- Liver Transplant


  • Grey Skin, Serum Ceruloplasmin <140, Urine copper excretion >100mcg/24hr and Kayser Fleischer Rings in eyes; Rx- Lifelong Penicillamine

Delhi Fights Covid 19 Amidst The Third Wave


Outside the Emergency of Rajeev Gandhi Super Specialty Hospital as I hear my senior explain the condition of my known-to patient during counsel sessions, I’m called by a staff for assistance. A young mid-20s female sitting blank over there, asks me in quiet tone- “Sir, my 1 month kid is covid positive, where should i go?” To be honest, my first clue was Chacha Nehru Hospital, but again, she said she has already been there and Ram Manohar Lohiya Hospital too.

Warriors in Rajeev Gandhi Super Specialty Hospital are already doing their best under guidance of Dr. Vikas Dogra Sir and Dr. Ajeet Jain Sir and the hospital is currently the one which is having most available vacant ventilator beds to hold the critical victims of the pandemic. But the question is, how far can we fight?

Covid 19 Hospital Beds ICU

Scenario 1: What if not Covid?

Delhi government has in fact set up the best (yes i mean best) organization of medical facilities to fight Covid 19 efficiently. But there are still sections that need to be looked. People who are having medical issues other than covid, are panicking because they simply don’t know where to go when situation demands.

Let me give an example again. Where will you go if you had an accident and broke your bone? Ask yourself the same question, and then ask if others around you know it too. See, it’s that simple. Casualties happen always, but we actually got no clue which path to walk. People should know what hospitals are treating the non-covid cases, and by that, I exclusively mean government run hospitals.

Scenario 2: Lack of Concern

I’m a typical atheist, yet I firmly believe in the notion of “God’s Punishment of Covid”, when i walk outside my home and see Covidiots roaming around without masks and laughing when i ask them to wear one.

Indeed, they don’t understand the gravity of the situation, but I will gladly smile too when such people suffer out of Covid. Before you judge me, I don’t actually blame everyone, for some good bosoms also suffer for the acts of others. 

Covidiots 19
Beware of Such Creatures, Infact Don’t Be One

Irregardless of the cases that have come up in the peak of third wave in Delhi, much is needed again to re-incite the cause for care in people around us. And for the cause, i almost got touched and heartbroken, for there is actually no information practically available to the people out there, when they ask themselves, “Where should i go?”

Scenario 3: Digital doesn’t reach everyone

Rather than digitalizing everything into apps and websites, people should be granted a way out of information in the very crude sources. Not everyone is used to apps and helpline platforms are doing their best, but still unable to reach everyone (i tried calling helpline for the same lady myself).

We know our leaders are most educated and always find a way to help their people, I just heed your approach on this too. We will undoubtedly come out of this together.


I seek Delhi government as a Doctor and a Delhite, for I know the voices are heard very often in our beloved city. Kindly help such citizens with valuable medical information they seek, so they don’t have to wander around looking for a hope.

Our guides and us will keep the fight on till our last breath, as we were taught in our Hippocratic oath to do so, but a little help will be exquisite. Concluding, Hope is everything, I’ll hope for me and you, you hope for all of us. We are always open to suggestions and feedbacks in the comments section below.

Trust me, it’s not at all FUN!

The Unsung Warriors Of Rajeev Gandhi Hospital


While most of Delhites have learnt to live with the Covid-19, there has been an unconquerable increase in the number of cases in the past few months. Doctors and Medical staff are turning their efforts towards saving every precious life in hospitals, where Rajeev Gandhi Super Specialty Hospital, Tahirpur, stands the finest in East Delhi. Under the leadership of Dr. Ajeet Jain, the infrastructure has set the very foundations of what we may call the beginning of the new era: Covid Free India!

Filled with enthusiasm and an untiring zeal, Doctors here are working tirelessly, to not only treat their patients, but to create an atmosphere of assurance amidst the chaos. To watch them remove their PPE kits during doffing procedure, where the sweat drags itself on the floors, is like looking at a lake of efforts.

Under the leadership of our esteemed Director, Dr. BL Sherwal and Dr. Ajeet Jain, Nodal officer of the hospital, who works more than 12hrs a day, to guide everything in a direction of integrity, making sure everyone is safe and sound. Dr. Vikas Dogra, Head of Pulmonology department, can be seen throughout the premises of hospital, making sure patients needs are met genuinely. In a sound mind, it definitely is an exquisite hospital where other government hospitals might fail to meet the standards.

Despite 382 Doctors losing their lives fighting against Covid 19, our community isn’t losing the pace. We will keep believing in the simple notion of rebuilding everything once again.

Perhaps RGSSH is one of the leading hospital where Remdesivir Therapy and Plasma Therapy are being performed with highest cure rates and most preferable outcomes. A whole lot of protocols have been set up for the safety and consequences of the therapy, for one is accountable for every action he takes towards saving a life.

To conclude, we will honour the work our Doctors are doing everyday while we sleep peacefully looking at the bright side of life. Let’s not forget the ones we have lost, and leave the footprints on sands of time, for the seeds planted today will definitely bear the fruits tomorrow. Stay safe, stay healthy.

Anemia: Understanding The Concepts




Anemia is the most mutual medical ailment of pregnancy. The occurrence of anemia in pregnancy ranges from 40-80 % in tropics likened to 10-20% in developed countries.

“Anemia is a reduction in red blood cells (erythrocytes) which in turn decrease the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood. It reflects an abnormality in red blood cell number, structure or function”.

According to WHO, “Anemia in pregnancy is present when the hemoglobin concentration in the peripheral blood is 11g/100ml or less. Keeping in mind the socio-economic status, the level is brought down to 10g/100ml or less”. Or “Anemia is defined as a reduction below normal in the number of red blood corpuscles per cubic millimeter, the quantity of hemoglobin and the volume of packed red cells per 100 ml of blood”.

Classification of Anemia


Anemia is classified into two:

  1. Physiological anemia of pregnancy.
  2. Pathological anemia: it is further divided into:
    1. Deficiency anemia (isolated or combined)
    1. Hemorrhagic
    1. Hemolytic (Lack of bile pigment in urine)
    1. Bone marrow insufficiency
    1. Hemoglobinopathies

Causes of Anemia During Pregnancy

  1. Inadequate iron reserve
  2. Increase demand of iron
  3. Disturbed metabolism
  4. Pre pregnant health status
  5. Condition requiring excess demand
  6. Faulty dietetic habit
  7. Iron loss

Clinical Features


  1. Lassitude and a feeling of exhaustion or weakness may be earlier manifestation.
  2. Anorexia
  3. Palpitation
  4. Indigestion

  6. Gigginess
  7. Swelling of leg
  8. Pallor of mucus membrane

In examination

  1. There is pallor glossitis and stomatitis.
  2. There may be adima of leg.
  3. A soft systolic mermer may be geared.
  4. Crepitation may be heard.

Diagnosis of a Case of Iron Deficiency/Anemia

  1. Hematological examination
    1. Hemoglobin
    1. Total red cell count
    1. Packed cell Volume
    1. Peripheral blood smear
    1. MCHC, MCB and MCH values
    1. Serum Iron
    1. Total iron binding capacity
    1. Serum ferritim
  2. Examination of stool
    1. To detect anemia due to hookworm infestation
  3. Urine examination
    1. To check infection and presence of protein, sugar and pus cell

Complication of Severe Anemia

  1. During pregnancy:
    1. Pre-eclampsia
    1. Intercurrent infection
    1. Heart failure
    1. Preterm labor
    1. Abortion
  2. During labor:
    1. Uterine inertia
    1. PPH
    1. Cardiac failure
    1. Shock
  3. During puerperium:
    1. Puerperal Sepsis
    1. Sub involution

Suggestions to those studying pharmacology in Second year MBBS are as follows:

  1. Try to read this article- How to study Pharmacology in Second Year MBBS.
  2. Most of the pharmacology is mugging up, you will end making a number of mnemonics for them. But do not miss important topics, including the drugs for cardiology, anti-biotics, etc.
  3. Do not miss Emergency medicine drugs.

NMC Bill In Rajya Sabha 2019: Ready To Pass


The NMC or National Medical Commission Bill 2019 has recently been passed from Lok Sabha on 29th July and is ready to be passed in Rajya Sabha too. The fraternity of doctors is protesting massively against the bill, however, it seems the government and the doctors are bound to clash. We explore the key points of NMC bill 2019 pdf as we try to explain you why it is a disaster for the entire medical community in India.

We have been following news of EXIT exam since years, but the bill was thought to never pass at first stage. And when the rumors have become alive, the ones preparing day and night for Post-Graduation after MBBS are furthermore in stress. We have made a quick review on the updates of NMC Bill 2019 below:

1. The National Medical Commission Bill was introduced in Lok Sabha in July 22, 2019 by Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Minister of Health and Family Welfare, to replace the 63-year old MCI which was alleged to be full of corruption.

2. The Commission or the Board is to be of 25 members, who will be appointed by central government. The Bill has to be regulated within 3 years of passing, and state governments will establish State Medical Councils at the state level.

3. Apart from the basic functioning of NMC board, it will also frame guidelines for determination of fees of up to 50% seats in private colleges and universities.

4. So far, the Ayush Doctors through Bridge course has not been included in the bill after the previous wide-spread protest by MBBS doctors, however, they have not withdrawn completely and has been proposed in Lok Sabha. It will allow mid-level practitioners to prescribe for a limited level, however for others, they will need to be supervised under Registered Medical Practitioners.

5. There will be a uniform National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEXT exam) for admission to under-graduate and post-graduate education. All MBBS graduates after finishing they 5.5 years of graduation will be required to give NEXT exam to practice as physicians and register themselves in the state board, while also applying for the PG courses with the rank. In short, NEXT exam will serve as both providing license to practice and Post-Graduation after finishing final prof of MBBS.

6. It also has been postulated to regard final prof marks as the basis for admission to PG courses, however, this has not been clear so far.

We saw a protest by IMA leaders including Dr. Santanu Sen, IMA President, and thousands of students against the NMC bill. However, they were arrested by the police outside the Nirman Bhawan in Delhi, and medical community called it a black day.

There is nothing government can do when reservation protests are done, there is nothing when a doctor is beaten in the hospital, but yes, the government can call arrest of every single doctor protesting peacefully against a stupid bill that aims at destroying the medical community in India. Do we really need to NEXT exam after MBBS just to show we are eligible to work as doctors after 5.5 years of hard work? Why not same criteria for other services? Why not same for politicians drowned in countless criminal cases?

We are currently looking forward to this grave issue, while IMA has announced a wide-spread strike by withdrawal of non-emergency services all over in India on 31st July 2019. The strike will be peaceful as it was last time, when doctors demanded from government the safety at work after the incident at West Bengal. A Bench of Justices Deepak Gupta and Surya Kant said there was no urgency in the matter as the strike had been called off.

Do you support the notion of bringing this NMC Bill 2019 into act or you stand against it? Share your opinions in the comments below.

Kidney Stones: Lifestyle Changes You Can Make!


A huge amount of population suffers Kidney Stones, also known as Nephrolithiasis. We doctors commonly see patients coming up in ER with their hands on their flanks and telling us how painful it is. We do manage the situation, but what advice would you give to ones who have kidney stones? What would you tell them to eat or drink or do regarding their vulnerability to Kidney Stones?

Below are some key points that were summarized and scripted out from the Bible of Medicine, Harrison. The following points are authentic and have been validated, and do share the information to others to let them know what to do and what not to when they have Kidney Stones. Meanwhile you can also check out post on Gall Stones.

For the Doctors, here are some:

  • Kidney stones cause pain only when the stone moves in the ureter. Pain is actually a good sign.
  • 0-5mm stones pass 100%, 5-10 pass 70% and decreases further with size.
  • Surgical intervention is only required when there is UTI, intractable pain or anatomical abnormality.
  • T. Tamsulosin 0.4mg hs is quoted in Campbell and some articles to be relieve distal ureter stones, but not established yet.

For the People, here are Wise Words from The Gandalf!

  • Diclofenac is the best drug for pain in kidney stones.
  • Drink atleast 2L water, 500ml more than you pee.
  • Tomatoes and Potatoes and Spinach are most common sources of stones, but an Indian simply cannot avoid them. What to do? Take Curd with these foods.
    Note: While Dietary calcium is good, supplement calcium actually contributes to stones. Shouldn’t exceed 1200ng.
  • It’s better to use lemon on tomato in salad, and avoid tomato seeds.
  • If you are non-vegetarian, perhaps you should try taking less of animal protein.
  • Less of Sodium (salt) diet is mandatory. Sucrose and fructose are other culprits.
  • Potassium is good, perhaps banana can help?
  • Vitamin C supplements increase risk of stones.
  • Avoid Carbonated drinks, let go off Coke.
  • Tea, coffee, beer and wine are actually helpful in kidney stones.
