Yusuff, O, Owolabi F, Lawal-Bello A, Amjo O, Soyoye D, Kolawole B.  2016.  Type 2 DM risk evaluation in Nigerian undergraduates in Ile Ife: a comparison of the Finnish vs Indian risk scoring system, 2016/10/14. Abstract

Background & objectives: Type 2 diabetes is on the increase especially among young people around the world due to increase in obesity and sedentary life style. Many risks scoring system has been developed and validated worldwide. Most are simple and inexpensive.This research was to determine the applicability of these scoring systems in our environment and to compare the sensitivity of the Finnish versus the Indian scoring system in OAU undergraduates at Ile-Ife.
Methods: Hundred and eighty undergraduate students of OAU were recruited, the two questionnaires were administered which incorporated simple parameters such as age, abdominal obesity, BMI, physical activity, family history of DM, consumption of fruits and vegetable.
Results: 73.3% had low risk while 26.7% had moderate risk, 0% had high risk using the IDRS. While FINDRISC had 87.2% with low risk, 12.2% slightly elevated risk and 0.6%with moderate risk. The IDRS was more sensitive in detecting those at risk compared to the FINDRISC.
Conclusions: Most of the respondents had low risk of developing type 2 DM, It is important to educate them on prevention of type 2 DM. A Nigerian DM risk score should be developed.
Keywords: T2DM, India Diabetes Risk Score (IDRS), Finnish Diabetes risk score (FINDRISC), Prevention.

Komolafe, MA, Sunmonu TA, Esan OA.  2008.  Tuberculous meningitis presenting with unusual clinical features in Nigerians: Two case reports, 2008. Cases Journal. 1(1) Abstract

Background: Tuberculous meningitis is common in developing countries and accounts for about 7.8% to 14% of all cases of tuberculosis in Nigeria. Case presentation: Case 1 was a 17-year-old woman who presented with a 3-week history of weakness of the right upper and lower limbs, a 6-hour history of inability to speak and irrational behaviour. She had no remarkable past medical history. Physical examination revealed pyrexia (temperature of 38.2C) and altered level of consciousness (Glasgow coma score = 7/15). The signs of meningeal irritation were present and she had anisocoria and right spastic hemiparesis. Other aspects of physical examination were normal. Laboratory investigations showed an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, normal cerebrospinal fluid protein and reduced glucose. The brain computed tomography scan showed features in keeping with obstructive hydrocephalus and she was immediately commenced on antituberculous drugs, intravenous steroids and mannitol. She made a remarkable clinical recovery and was discharged home 6 weeks after admission. Case 2 was a 40-year-old man who presented with a 6-week history of headache and fever and a 2-week history of alteration in level of consciousness. There was no history of neck pain and/or stiffness, nausea or vomiting. He had no other remarkable past medical history. He had been placed on various intravenous antibiotics in private hospitals before presentation, with no clinical improvement. Physical examination showed a young man in a coma (Glasgow coma score = 4/15) and febrile (temperature of 38.5C) with signs of meningeal irritation. The brain stem reflexes were impaired and he had spastic quadriparesis. Further physical examination was essentially normal. The cerebrospinal fluid analysis showed features in keeping with meningeal inflammation and he had a raised erythrocyte sedimentation rate. The brain computed tomography scan showed features in keeping with obstructive hydrocephalus. He was placed on antituberculous drugs and intravenous steroids but despite this his clinical condition deteriorated and he died on the sixth day after admission. Conclusion: Late presentation of tuberculous meningitis is not rare in Nigerians and we report two cases of tuberculous meningitis that presented late to our health care facility. This report is intended to make clinicians aware of the unusual clinical presentations of tuberculous meningitis.

Background/Aims: For a century since the first cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) shunt surgery, ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt insertion for the treatment of hydrocephalus has routinely been performed. A lot of common and rare complications following this procedure have been reported in 24-47% of the cases. The aim of this paper was to present our experience with the treatment of hydrocephalus in our centre and highlight our management of two unusual complications with the available resources. Methods: Retrospective clinical review. Results: A total of 86 patients with hydrocephalus were seen in our unit. There were 52 males and 34 females (male:female ratio 3:2). The age of the patients ranged from 1 day to 68 years. The majority of the patients (92%) were below 5 years of age. Sixty-five patients had shunting procedures [VP shunt: 62 (95.4%); endoscopic third ventriculostomy: 3 (4.6%)]. Of the 62 patients with VP shunts, 16 (25.8%) had complications while 2 of the 3 patients with endoscopic third ventriculostomies had complications. The complications following the VP shunts were CSF shunt sepsis (n = 12; 19.4%), abdominal complications (n = 3; 4.8%), subdural haematoma (n = 2; 3.2%) and scalp necrosis in 1 patient. Conclusion: VP shunt procedures have come to stay and will remain with us despite recent advances such as endoscopic third ventriculostomy. Care should be taken to prevent all complications whether common or rare by paying particular attention to patient selection, shunt selection and surgical details. The adaptation of local technology and justified use of limited facilities and resources can go a long way in the management of both common and rare complications in developing nations.

In Ile-Ife, Nigeria, traumatic brain injuries are largely due to traffic accidents caused mainly by the bad maintenance of the roads and unsafe driving. Young men in the productive stage of their lives are those most affected. The resultant disabilities include quadriplegia (in more than half the patients) and paraplegia. The cost of treating and providing adequate facilities for these patients imposes a heavy economic burden upon developing countries. © 2006, Royal Society of Medicine Press. All rights reserved.
