|Abstract||Though infrequent, acoustic neurinomas have been described during pregnancy and represent a therapeutic challenge for excision without producing any problem for the mother and the foetus. First Author experienced two cases of acoustic neurinomas presenting during pregnancy. One patient presented in the terminal stages of the third trimester of pregnancy and underwent caesarean section, followed by retromastoid craniectomy and excision of the rumour. Operative management of the pregnancy and tumour in the same sitting has not been reported in the literature. Second patient who presented during 2nd trimester of pregnancy, was operated on for the tumour and had a successful continuance of pregnancy. Details of the management are discussed and the relevant literature reviewed. In addition to causing aggravation of symptoms, the larger size and increased vascularity of these rumours during pregnancy, makes them more vulnerable to acute bleeding, which in turn may initiate new or exacerbate pre-existing symptoms, as noted in one of the cases presented in this report.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
