1.  Bilateral Charcot arthropathy of shoulder secondary to syringomyelia: An unusual case report 
Neuropathic arthropathy of the shoulder is a relatively rare disorder characterized by destruction of joint secondary to loss of sensory innervation. Bilateral Charcot arthropathy is an even rarer disorder, with very few cases reported in the English literature. We herein present a case of bilateral shoulder arthropathy secondary to syringomyelia with classical clinical and radiological findings. Radiological finding on one side was of resorptive type and resorptive mixed with productive on the other side.

2.  Living longer living happier: My journey from clinical neurology to complexities of brain 
The present article is a treatise on the illuminating voyage of a Neurophysician along the fascinating horizons and frontiers of neurosciences. During the career as a clinical neurologist, some very interesting and intriguing cases and issues were dealt with and documented scientifically. The working of the brain and its operational architectonics came up for critical analysis, opening up new vistas in the appreciation and management of various neurological disorders. Issues regarding the working of the mind and the guidelines for health and happiness became apparent, and some very interesting generalizations with far-reaching consequences on the general well-being and health have been formulated and put forward for a healthy and happy future for mankind. A paradigm shift is warranted for a closer and better appreciation of neural dynamics at all levels of the brain, namely microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic levels!

3.  Reversible neurological syndromes with atypical pneumonia 
Simultaneous or sequential involvement of lungs is frequently encountered with neurological syndromes like meningoencephalitis, cerebellitis, aseptic meningitis, transverse myelitis, or multiple cranial nerve palsies. However, pulmonary involvement is frequently overlooked when all the attention of physician is diverted to neurological disorder. Prompt and early recognition of such potentially treatable association is required to improve diagnostic and therapeutic outcome. We report six patients presenting with various neurological manifestations like meningitis, meningoencephalitis, and myelits associated with atypical pneumonia. With proper clinical correlation and relevant investigations, all of them were diagnosed in time and had remarkable recovery with appropriate treatment.
