This study was carried out to know the frequency of occurrence of common anatomic variants in computed tomography of paranasal sinuses and nasal cavity. Non contrast Computed tomography (CT) of paranasal sinuses of 50 patients referred to Department Of Radiology, were retrospectively studied. The Multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) scans were evaluated for various anatomical variants of paranasal sinuses and nasal cavity. The frequency of occurrence was calculated in percentage. We found out that deviated nasal septum (DNS) was the most common variant in this study, seen in 86% of cases, followed by Agger nasi cells which was seen in 56% and the third most common was supra-orbital ethmoidal cells seen in 42% of the study population. All the cases included in the study, had minimum of one variant. Most of the study population showed multiple anatomical variations of paranasal sinus and nasal cavity.

Background: An excess burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an established paradigm. The present study was conducted to assess the prevalence of acute myocardial infarction in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
Materials & Methods: From the outpatient department, 150 patients with a confirmed diagnosis of RA were included in this study. Demographic factors including age, past and family history of MI were noted using a self-structured questionnaire.  MI was diagnosed based on symptoms, cardiac enzyme, and ECG. Statistical analysis was done using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) (IBM Corporation, Armonk, New York, USA). p-value of < 0.05 was considered significant.
Results: In the present study, 150 patients with a confirmed diagnosis of RA were included in which 53.33% were females and 46.66% were males. The mean age of patients was 48 years. 4.66% patients had previous history of MI and 6% patients had family history of MI. 14% RA patients had non-fatal MI and 4% RA patients had fatal MI. In 82% RA patients MI was absent.
Conclusion: The present study concluded that 14% RA patients had non-fatal MI and 4% RA patients had fatal MI.

Background: Prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) is quite common among the diabetic population. The diagnosis of UTI should be suspected in any diabetic patient. The present study was conducted to assess the prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria in females suffering from type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Materials & Methods: A total of 180 diabetic females were included in the study. Urine samples were obtained from all the patients and prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria was recorded. All the results were recorded on a Microsoft excel sheet and were analysed by SPSS software.
Results: In the present study a total of 180 females of age group 18-60 years suffering from type 2 diabetes mellitus were included to assess the prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria. The prevalence of bacteriuria in the females was found to be 31.11%. The prevalence of bacteriuria in the females was maximum in the age group 30-40 years (39.28%).
Conclusion: The study concluded that prevalence of bacteriuria in the females suffering from type 2 diabetes mellitus was found to be 31.11% and it was maximum in the age group 30-40 years (39.28%).
