another short trip to Mangalore coming up [of one day] and really looking forward to it..postings till today were quite good where we saw many good cases....finally [and luckily for us:)] got to see a patient with Brocas Aphasia [see my title:D]...yeah there really is a term called Brocas which corresponds to area no 44 in the brain and is roughly situated above and front of our ears ..its anomaly results in a condition called Motor aphasia where the patient[as in our case] inspite of understanding what u say is not able to speak....actually this patient was hypertensive [SBP was 240!!..normal is 120-140] and had brain attack [similar to heart attack] due to this....
yesterday downloaded National Treasure 2 [fan of Nicolas cage!]..will watch it now and then start packing for the trip!!!!!:))....bye!!
