Abstract
Background and objective: The objective of the following study is to determine the use of ultrasound as an important adjunct to clinical and laboratory diagnosis of major causes of fever and in predicting the severity of the disease by correlating imaging features with laboratory findings. Methods: In our study 40 patients (Ten of each pathology) of age between 20 to 50 years, who presented with fever and serologically diagnosed were referred for ultrasound scanning of the abdomen and thorax, and the findings were analysed. Result: Typhoid-Ultrasonographic findings were hepatomegaly-splenomegaly, well distended gall bladder with thickened wall, oedematous wall thickening of terminal ileum, ileo-caecal junction and caecum, multiple rounded hypoechoic mesenteric lymph nodes and. Dengue - Ultrasonographic findings were gall bladder wall thickening, bilateral pleural effusion, peritoneal free fluid, Hepato-Splenomegaly and pericardial effusion. Malaria -Ultrasonographic findings were huge splenomegaly with hepatomegaly. Viral hepatitis A and E- Ultrasonographic findings were collapsed gall bladder with thickened wall, pericholecystiticoedema, periportal lymph nodes and hepatomegaly. Conclusion: Though serological tests will definitely diagnose the cause of fever, due to its unavailability in all parts of India especially in the small set-ups, Ultrasonography findings can provide the basic idea about the pathology and can help in starting the appropriate management as soon as possible.

Key words: Ultrasonography, fever, dengue, malaria, hepatitis, typhoid, serological tests.

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
