1/5. death by attack from a wild boar.

    Attacks on humans by wild animals causing fatal injuries are not uncommon in rural and forest areas of india. But death occurring due to attack by a wild boar is rare. As the victims of boar attack are usually recovered from dense forest areas, the investigating officers could be misled as to the nature of infliction of these multiple, fatal penetrating injuries to a possible homicide. Unlike the injuries inflicted by wild cats, canines and bulls, the hallmark of boar attack is the infliction of multiple penetrating injuries to the lower part of the body. This case is reported for its rarity, for the awareness of the possible injuries in such unnatural deaths, and for the factors predisposing to a boar attack.

2/5. Immediate reconstruction of the helical rim after bite injury using the posterior auricular flap.

    A local flap of auriculomastoid skin and subcutaneous tissue, based on the posterior auricular artery, has been used to reconstruct as a primary procedure defects of the helical rim following animal and human bites. The principles of the reconstruction and three illustrative case reports are presented.

3/5. Report of 4 cases of pasteurella multocida septic arthritis.

    pasteurella multocida is frequently responsible for infections in man due to wounds inflicted by animals (generally cats or dogs). However, the development of septic arthritis is a rare complication. We report 4 cases of pasteurella multocida septic arthritis with demonstration of the organism in the joint in each case. Two cases presented with monoarthritis (sternoclavicular joint and wrist) and 2 cases had polyarticular involvement from the outset.

5/5. Veterinary high pressure injection injuries with inoculations for larger animals.

    Equipment used in the mass vaccination of farm stock is a source of high pressure injection injury. We present four cases due to chicken vaccine, and one due to pig vaccine. Unlike injuries caused by paint or oil guns the vaccination delivers a fixed volume. Although the vaccine is in a mineral oil carrier it appears to elicit little inflammatory reaction in a small dose. The outcome is related to the volume injected. In chicken vaccine the dose is small enough to allow conservative or minimally invasive management. The large volume in pig vaccine requires treatment as for conventional high pressure injection injuries.
