One of the components that define what we speak is ‘Voice’. It is produced by the vibration of the ‘vocal folds’ also called “Voicebox” that’s located in our throat. When this so-called ‘voice’ is abnormal, the overall quality of speech is affected and sounds unpleasant. People might have encountered brief episodes of hoarseness or rough voice when they have a cold or a cough excessively. It remains for the shorter duration. If the same abnormal voice quality lasts for more than 3 weeks, then it’s high time that we consult an ENT, SLP and get evaluated.
A condition that presents with an abnormality in voice parameters, i.e. pitch, loudness and quality that impacts speech production.
Chikungunya is a self-limiting viral disease caused by chikungunya virus which is transmitted to humans by an infected female Aedes aegypti, mosquitoes.
Chikungunya symptoms include fever and severe joint pain. Other commonly seen symptoms include muscle pain, headache, nausea, fatigue and skin rash. Joint pain is often debilitating involving all the joints; it varies in severity and duration. Patients with severe joint pain should be suspected to have chikungunya.

Conservative Endodontic is a branch of dentistry which deals with diagnosis and treatment of dental problems associated with soft tissues inside the tooth.
Root canal refers to the natural cavity within the center of the tooth.
Root canal treatment (RCT) is a procedure to repair or save a badly damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it. The goal of this procedure is to save the tooth from pulpal necrosis (disease of pulp). RCT is done both in kids and adults in order to save their tooth from decaying; it stabilizes the tooth and gives it a new life.
Not all tooth decay requires RCT; only if the infection (decay) is too deep your dentist may recommend you this treatment option.

It has an efficacy of 75–86 % for prevention of miliary and meningeal form of Tuberculosis & 50% for pulmonary tuberculosis. “TB happens when a persom with latent TB becomes sick. Some individuals become sick as soon as they get infected, before their immune system can fight back.
