It gives me immense pleasure to present the second issue of IJPM 2014 before you. I would like to extend my gratitude toward all my associate editors, the editorial board members and the referees for their constant support and efforts in the rapid processing of articles. I'm also thankful to the authors for submitting their excellent research work for publication in this journal.

From this issue onwards, we are introducing a quiz page that contains a pictorial quiz. Readers can make their diagnosis and look for the answers on the subsequent pages in the journal.

The issue contains several interesting articles on various current topics of pathology, hematology and microbiology. Cytomorphological differentiation of lesions with variable prognosis is sometimes difficult. Developing a score based criteria or identification of histochemical stains and/or immunohistochemical markers may be helpful in such cases.

Articles by Radhika et al. on the scoring system for differentiating between causes of persistent neonatal cholestasis, Pawane et al. on the use of elastic tissue stains as ancillary tools to distinguish between arterio-venous malformation and hemangiomas, and Tyagi et al. who have highlighted the cytomorphological and immunohistochemical features of secretory meningiomas that may pose a diagnostic challenge to pathologists are some examples.

Newer methods and techniques always help in advancement of a subject. Abhishek et al. have successfully used the gynocological colposcope for better detection of preneoplastic lesions of oral cavity. Establishment of biological reference values for newer platelet parameters by Ritesh et al. may offer new avenues for research and clinical use.

Arindam et al. have tried to highlight the problem of antibiotic resistance by demonstrating plasmid mediated AmpC producing isolates of  Escherichia More Details coli that are usually commensal strains, but now exhibiting resistance to multiple classes of antibiotics and are a major cause of therapeutic failure worldwide.

I hope the articles published in this issue will be of interest to both teaching and practicing pathologists and microbiologists and will help postgraduates in their research. I once again request the authors to avoid any kind of plagiarism.

With best wishes!
