    Osteochondromas develop as cartilaginous nodules in the periosteum of bones. They are the commonest benign tumors of the skeleton, generally observed in the long bones. Rarely, they are also found in the axial skeleton, flat bones of skull and facial bones. During a regular dissection, we came across a solitary osteochondroma in posterior surface of the body of the right pubic bone. Histopathology of the bony projection confirmed the typical features of the osteochondroma. The symptomatic osteochondromas are usually evaluated during radiographic examination. Though, the observed osteochondroma is relatively smaller its unusual location is remarkable and knowledge of occurrence of such nodules is clinically important during the diagnosis and planning of treatment.

    Locked pubic symphysis is a rare form of pelvic injury that usually occurs after a lateral compression injury to
    the pelvis, where the intact pubis is trapped behind the contralateral pubis. To the best of our knowledge, there
    were 25 similar cases reported in the English literature since it was first described in 1952. We present a case
    of locked pubic symphysis with a left iliac wing fracture and a left femur shaft fracture requiring open reduction
    and internal fixation. We also reviewed previous reported cases of locked pubic symphysis and analysed the
    pattern of presentation and guide to management of such injuries. We propose a classification system for
    grading overlapping pubic symphysis that will provide a better guide to the management of such injuries.

    Forensic entomological specimens received by the Unit of Medical Entomology, IMR., from hospitals and the police in Malaysia in the last 3 decades (1972 - 2002) are reviewed. A total of 448 specimens were received. From these, 538 identifications were made with the following results: Eighteen species of cyclorrphaga flies were identified consisting of Chrysomya megacephala (Fabricius) 215 cases (47.99%), Ch. rufifacies (Masquart) 132 (29.46%), Ch. villeneuvi Patton 10 (2.23%), Ch. nigripes Aubertin 7 (1.56%), Ch. bezziana Villeneuve 4 (0.89%), Ch. pinguis (Walker) 1 (0.22%), Chrysomya sp. 47 (10.49%), Sarcophaga sp. 28 (6.25%), Lucilia sp. 21 (4.69%), Hermetia sp. 15 (3.35%), He. illucens (Linnaeus) 1 (0.22%), Hemipyrellia ligurriens (Wiedemann) 3 (0.67%), Hemipyrellia sp. 2 (0.45%), Ophyra spinigera 1 (0.22%), Ophyra sp. 6 (1.34%), Calliphora sp. 24 (5.36%), Synthesiomyia nudiseta (Wulp) 1 (0.22%) and Eristalis sp. 1 (0.22%). Other non - fly insect specimens are Pthirus pubis (Linnaeus) (Pubic louse) 2 (0.45%) and Coleoptera (Beetles) 1 (0.22%). Ch. megacephala and Ch. rufifacies were the commonest species found in cadavers from different ecological habitats. Sy. nudiseta is an uncommon species, thus far found only on cadavers from indoors. Sy. nudiseta is reported for the second time in Peninsular Malaysia. A total of 329 cases (73.44%) had a single fly infestation, 109 cases (24.33%) had double fly infestation and 10 cases (2.23%) had triple fly infestation. Five cases (1.12%) had eggs and 3 cases (0.67%) had larval stages that were not identifiable. No arthropods were retrieved from cadavers in 8 cases (1.79%). In conclusion, although large number of fly species were found on human cadavers, the predominant species are still those of Chrysomya.

    Osteitis pubis among soccer athletes is a disabling painful condition and it is difficult to manage without integrating a multimodal treatment approach. There is limited scientific evidence on the effectiveness of exercise in treating Osteitis pubis especially when it progress to a chronic painful condition. The purpose of this case report is to discuss the successful multimodal physiotherapeutic management for a 15-year old soccer athlete diagnosed with stage-IV Osteitis pubis. Land and water based active core muscle strengthening exercises, Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation techniques (PNF) and Manual Therapy are some of the essential components incorporated in multimodal intervention approach with emphasis to water based strength and endurance training exercises. The athlete was able to make progress to a successful recovery from his chronic painful condition and accomplished the clearly established clinical outcomes during each phase of rehabilitation.

    The emergence of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has revolutionized the prognosis of HIV-infected patients. However, the extended use of HAART is associated with a disfiguring complication termed lipodystrophy, a disorder of body fat maldistribution causing peripheral fat loss (lipoatrophy) and central fat accumulation (lipohypertrophy). Lipoatrophy commonly affects the face, legs, buttocks and arm, whilst lipohypertrophy frequently favours the abdomen, breast and dorsocervical region. To our knowledge, we present only the second documented case in the literature of a labia majora lipohypertrophy in a HIV-positive patient receiving long-term HAART. The severity of labial abnormality caused significant physical and functional morbidities. Labiaplasty with dermolipectomy of the labia majora and excisional lipectomy of the mons pubis was successfully performed. At a 6-month follow-up, patient had no recurrence with resolution of symptoms and resumption of normal activities of daily living (ADL).

    Traumatic hemipelvectomy is an uncommon and life threatening injury. We report a case of a 16-year-old boy involved in a traffic accident who presented with an almost circumferential pelvic wound with wide diastasis of the right sacroiliac joint and symphysis pubis. The injury was associated with complete avulsion of external and internal iliac vessels as well as the femoral and sciatic nerves. He also had ipsilateral open comminuted fractures of the femur and tibia. Emergency debridement and completion of amputation with preservation of the posterior gluteal flap and primary anastomosis of the inferior gluteal vessels to the internal iliac artery stump were performed. A free fillet flap was used to close the massive exposed area.

    Studies reported that trans-obturator mid-urethral sling (TOT) is superior in safety and efficacy when compared with retro-pubic trans-vaginal tape (TVT) with regard to bladder, vascular and urethral injury. The purpose of this study is to determine if the TOT is equivalent to the TVT by using patient-reported outcomes for the treatment of urodynamic stress urinary incontinence (USI) at Ipoh Hospital. Methods: It is a cross-sectional study on all consecutive patients who underwent TVT procedure between Jan 2005 and Jan 2006 and TOT procedure from Jan 2006 to Jun 2008. Post operatively; all women were followed up at one month, three months, 12 months and annually, thereafter. Data was retrieved from the patients’ records based on the standard pre-operative assessment sheet and follow up record. Then, interviews were made via a telecommunication to assess the patients’ symptoms and satisfaction using a validated questionnaire. Data analysis were performed using IBM SPSS Statistics for Windows version 19 (SPSS Inc., Chicago, Illinois) considering a significant level of P < 0.05. Results: Total of 51 subjects in TVT group and 52 in TOT group were available for analysis. At 12 months, the stress urinary incontinence (SUI) cure rate is higher in the TVT (90.2%) compared to TOT (80.8%) group; however, it was not statistically significant (p=0.279). The lower urinary tract symptoms (LUT) were improved post-operatively in both groups with urgency and urgency incontinence being significantly better in the TVT group. Four (7.4%) subjects in the TVT group had a bladder perforation (p=0.992) and one case of vaginal erosion reported in the TOT group. Conclusion: TVT had a higher successful rate in the treatment of
    SUI; however, it increases the risk of bladder perforation. Over active bladder symptom (OAB) were significantly mproved in the TVT compared to TOT group.
