•Septal deviation is acommon disorder affect sinus pathology
•Design of study : prospective study
• Rate of each type of septal deviation .
•Morbidity of septal deviation .
•Associated sinonasal pathology .
Patient and methods
•About 150 patients. collected from out patient clinic from AL.Yarmouk teaching hospital from April 2017 till Augest 2018 who complain from nasal obstruction, nasal discharge, facial pain others for at least 3month, patients presented without previous diagnosis.
•All patients collected due to symtomatic septal deviation, then examination done either by ant. Rhinoscopy using head light and killian nasal speculam, endoscopy rigid type 4mm (00&300) and fibroptic (nasopharyngeal)
•Doing C.T scan for each patient to observe change in each type on paranasal sinuses ,the shape of deviation which seen by endoscopy and exclude other nasal and paranasal pathology
• Data collected in questioner or statistic reading method using P.value .
• Observe rate of each type ,morbidity of septal deviation consequence of pathology of each type regarding of sinuses
• In this current study for 150 case symptomatic septal deviation we observe :
• C-shape (91)60.6%
• S-shape (59) 39.3%
• we found 70 case associated with sinus pathology
• C-shape=32case 45.8%
• S-shape =38case 54.2%

• Deviated nasal septum associated with significant sinonasal disease especial S-shape DNS which show statically significant correlation with sinus disease .
• Nasal obstruction are the main complain of septal deviation .
• Bilateral sinus disease more associated with S-shape &unilateral sinus disease with C-shape .

Background: pilonidal sinus(PNS) is a chronic disease that mostly affects young adults. describes a hair-filled cavity in the subcutaneous fat of the post sacral intergluteal region, known as the natal cleft , its name arises from the Latin terms “pilus” and “nidus” meaning a nest of hair PNS can be asymptomatic, or may be present as a recurrent abscess or as chronic inflamed cavity and local discharge from sinus or sinuses and local pain and discomfort .
retrospective study was done from (November 2017 to November 2018) at surgical department in Kirkuk General Hospital in 50 patients with recurrent PNS all will be treated with Limberg flap then follow up for one year this surgery done by excision of PNS till we reach fascia overlying sacrum inferiorly and laterally till we reach gluteal fascia and dissection was performed with electro cautery and reconstruction done by flap (Limberg flap) from gluteal area
in 50 patient with recurrent PNS we have 45 (90%) were male and 5 (10%) were female ,30 patient (60%) patients had a familial history of PNS and 42 patients(84%) with etiology-related risk factors to develop PNS then we divided them according first time surgery done either, by excision and primary closure 30 patient(60%) or excision and healing by granulation tissue and secondary intension 20patient (40%)

Iraq's health-care system has faced tremendous obstacles in its recovery from the Islamic State's conflict. Iraq has set targets to prevent and control noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes, but safety confrontation and governmental insecurity have made these objectives difficult to achieve. Better glycemic control is critical in allowing patients to perform at their best in terms of diabetes management and preventing long-term complications.The goal is to identify the roadblocks to better glycemic management.The participants in this cross-sectional study were recruited from a diabetes out-patient clinic at Baba Gurgur diabetic facility. From April to December 2019, K1 hospital – North oil company in Kirkuk city. A validated questionnaire was used to interview those with an uncontrolled glycemic index (AIC7%). Patients were asked to name the primary causes of inadequate glucose control and to select more than one response based on their opinion.The mean A1C was 8.3 2.1 percent, with 256 (22.5 percent) patients having an A1C less than 7% and 880 (77.5 percent) having an A1C equal to or greater than 7. Poor glycemic control is caused by a lack of medication and/or a lack of drug supply from PHC in 51.1 percent of cases. Diet and medication non-compliance, as well as illiteracy,. Glycemic regulation is greatly influenced by one's financial situation. However, security issues and political instability play a significant impact.Conclusion: Diabetic patients confirmed poor glycemic control, with the majority of cases being linked to Iraq's current health situation.

Kirkuk Journal of Medical Sciences, In Press

There is increasing evidence that the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is considered as a potential trigger virus for the development of diabetes mellitus in children. This can occur even in patients without factors predisposing to impaired glucose metabolism like obesity . Here, we report a rare case of diabetic ketoacidosis revealing new-onset diabetes and precipitated by COVID-19. The relationship between type 1 diabetes mellitus and COVID-19 is discussed. Results: A 13 years old girl developed symptoms suggestive of diabetic ketoacidosis preceded by polyuria, polydipsia, and lethergy. There is a documented COVID-19 infection in her parents . An asymptomatic infection was detected on the basis of a reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) . she responded well to treatment, including rehydration regimens and intravenous insulin. On the 4th day of her hospitalization, she was transferred to several injections of subcutaneous insulin with therapeutic and nutritional education from the parents. Conclusion. COVID-19 can induce acute onset diabetes and diabetic ketoacidosis in children. More research data are needed to improve our knowledge of this constellation and to guide the most appropriate therapies.

Background: The most common functional gastrointestinal disorder is irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). food can act a function in stimulation presentations. Using the Rome IV criteria, we calculated the prevalence of irritable bowel syndrome and it’s types amidst Iraqi inhabitance.
Method and patient: A descriptive cross-sectional treatise carried out in the outpatient clinics at two prime Kirkuk infirmary. Between November 2019 and February 2022, a total of 2638 people (1412 men and 1226 women) completed a questionnaire with three sections (sociodemographic, Rome IV, and food constraints). We used appropriateness sampling.

Result: irritable bowel syndrome was documented in 208 people (7.90%), with 52 percent of them having IBSM (mixed) type. Women had a higher prevalence than men (4.90 versus 3.00 %; P value = 0.006). There was a presumed link inter alia having Irritable bowel syndrome presentation and having a minimal revenue (P value = 0.0100) and idle (P value= 0.0001).

Conclusions: Irritable bowel syndrome is less prevalent in Iraqi society. The highest correlations with IBS are female genus, minimal family revenue, plus occupational situation. outlook society treatises can provide a chance to discuss educational varies and diet priorities.

for estimation the prevalence of osteoporosis and osteopenia amidst Iraqi postmenopausal females turning up the Azadi Teaching Hospital's Diabetes and Endocrinology clinic, as well as the relevant venture agents. A descriptive cross-sectional treatise was carried out in a diabetic and endocrinology clinic in Kirkuk, Iraq. An aggregate of 1085 Iraqi postmenopausal females at age 45 to 84 years old were enrolled in this study, which took place between April 2019 and April 2021. The bone mineral density of all patients was measured using a dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan. According to World Health Organization recommendations, the DEXA scan was explicated in idioms of T score. Osteoporosis and osteopenia were found to be prevalent in 37.5 percent and 44.6 percent of the population, respectively. The lumbar spine had the highest incidence of osteoporosis (32.40 %), chased via the left femoral neck (14.40 %), and the left femoral neck had the highest frequency of osteopenia (56.10 %), the lumbar spine (41.30 %). Extended menopausal scope, ordinary or overweight BMI, elevated parity, corporal inactivity, affirmative family history of osteoporosis, inconvenient sun exposition, elevated diurnal cafe utilization, low diurnal utilization of calcium, with delayed menarche age were whole linked to osteoporosis. Females with type 2 diabetes, on the other hand, had a decreased incidence of osteoporosis. Iraqi postmenopausal females have a significant frequency of osteoporosis and osteopenia. More generic instruction plus a better publicizing of knowledge about osteoporosis and its prohibition are required
