Sir,
The dermajet being used in our department is an imported one. When the container of the dermajet broke one day, it almost broke the hearts of the departmental doctors as well as those patients for whom we had given a prior appointment for intralesional injections. We did not have a spare container of reinforced plastic from the company, and the cumbersome procurement procedure for importing another one was a strong deterrent for trying to get one. Since the circumstances were pressing, I had to search for a similar sized container and finally, found one: a 5 ml disposable syringe, the cylinder of which when cut to matching size, perfectly fitted our dermajet. This very cheap and easily available, sterilized substitute has been working so well for the past 2 years that the need to get an original one has never been felt.

Truly, someone has correctly said that necessity is the mother of most inventions.
