We discuss here the case of a 49 years old man who is admitted in the emergency department in acute heart failure. He suffers of severe alcoholism and malnutrition. This heart failure is a high-output heart failure. The diagnosis is beriberi, a disease caused by a deficiency of thiamine (vitamin B1). The treatment is intravenous administration of thiamine. Clinical response is spectacular with normalization of the clinical setting within a few hours. [less ▲]

Epidemiological studies, more specifically those related to analytical epidemiology are a major determinant of evidence-based medicine. When classifying the value of the different epidemiological studies, based on their level of causality, cohort studies are ranked higher than case-control studies, mainly due to the fact that they allow direct collection of information on exposition to risk factors and health consequences. However, case-control studies can also provide an important information, if a specific effort is dedicated to the analyses of the circumstances of the exposition. Meta-analysis increases, by pooling them, the statistical power of individual studies of limited size. Meta-analysis can also be considered as an important source of evidence in the perspective of evidence-based medicine. [less ▲]
