   clinical and pathological diagnosis.

         The hospital records of 150  patients  with  clinical  diagnosis  of  acute

   majority  of them were in 15-24  ages group. The most accurate diagnosis

   was in male group (81%) and in  female  it  was 54.5%. The most acuurate

   diagnosis was in  25 - 34  years   ages   group  and the lowest was in 35-54
