Le programme national nutrition santé (PNNS) est un plan de santé publique mis en place en janvier 2001 par le ministère de la Santé. Son but est d'améliorer l'état de santé de la population, en particulier dans les domaines de l'obésité...Il repose sur l'amélioration de la consommation alimentaire et la promotion de l'activité physique. Deux des objectifs du plan concernent la promotion de l'allaitement maternel et la prévention de l'obésité. [less ▲]

Infantile pyknocytosis (IP) is a rare hematological entity of newborns. It is a form of hemolytic anemia with unusual red cell morphology: the red blood cells are distorted, irregular, and small with many projections. Spontaneous resolution usually occurs by 4-6months of age. OBSERVATION: We describe the clinical features and biological parameters of 5 cases of IP. The first symptoms were always early jaundice, which required phototherapy. Anemia was severe in all babies and red blood cell transfusion was needed. CONCLUSION: IP is a rare cause of neonatal anemia whose diagnosis is based on a careful peripheral blood smear examination. In our study, anemia was severe and required red blood cell transfusion. Ethnic specificity and familial occurrence are reported in our experience. [less ▲]

Despite the benefits of human milk fortification, nutrients of human milk are not sufficient to cover the greater needs of very low birth weight and to ensure a growth similar to that of premature infants fed with preterm formula. These differences could be related to the variation in the macronutrient composition of expressed breast milk with lower protein and energy content. Unfortunately there is unusually no information on macronutrients composition prior human milk fortification. With such data, it would be possible to individualize the fortification. In order to use adjustable fortification of human milk, we have assessed a rapid and simple method using full spectrum infrared laser technology (Milkoscan) to analyze human milk composition. We describe the variation in concentration of protein, lipid and energy in the human milk received in our neonatal unit. Then we evaluate the benefit of adjustable fortification of human milk compared with standard fortification. After standard fortification the variability of protein and lipid remains with a risk of protein deficiency or excess and a risk of energy deficiency. After adjustable human milk fortification based on human milk analysis using Milkoscan, we observe a more stable protein content and a lower amount of added fortifier decreasing the risk of hyperosmolarity. Furthermore, the energy content is higher following of the fat human milk adjusted content. Up to now, our preliminary results suggest that individualized fortification of human milk improves growth rate in preterm infants (21 g/kg/d) to a level close to formula fed infants. [less ▲]

The objectives of this article are to: a) review literature about physical, mental health and behaviors of first generation immigrant adolescents and its evolution; b) compare first and second generations immigrant adolescents'health. Studies usually compare first generation and others adolescents groups: 1) first generation adolescents shows better physical health and behaviors than second generation; 2) first generation adolescents shows variable results for mental health compared to second generation and host adolescents according to the studies; 3) a degradation of physical health and behaviors is observed with the time passed in the host country. These results show necessity of a precocious evaluation of first generation adolescents' needs for a good planification of health promotion and prevention actions to preserve their health advantage at arrival.

OBJECTIVES: Little is known so far about the health of newly immigrant adolescents. The present study aimed to evaluate their health and quality of life (QoL) and to reinforce prevention and health promotion in school medicine. METHODS: One hundred and fifty-eight adolescents (mean age: 15,4 years) from 37 nationalities were included in the study in two health centers in Brussels. This study was carried out by medical records analysis and administration of a questionnaire about health and QoL (VSP-A) in several languages. RESULTS: The results showed adolescents in good physical health. Nevertheless their quality of life deteriorated over time in Belgium. The QoL was significantly lower for adolescents without social support: 48,0 (SD=13,5) vs 60,6 (SD=11,1) compared with adolescents with social support - i.e. with one resource person - on a scale from 0 to 100. Adolescents had many subjective health problems, like "the future" cited by half of them. CONCLUSION: This study shows the importance of developping a specific approach to newly immigrant adolescents health and the contribution of school medicine in the identification of biological, psychological and social needs and hightlights the preventive answers carried out by school medicine.

We report the case of a 2.5-month-old infant with severe anaemia discovered fortuitously during an acute febrile illness. The patient was admitted because of a septic arthritis of the knee. Initial biology showed a 3.5 g/dl haemoglobin concentration. The anaemia was microcytic and hypochromic, with obvious haemolysis and reticulocytosis. Standard analysis was not contributive. Further investigations allowed the diagnosis of elliptocytosis. The patient was treated by antibiotics, orthopaedic measures and iterative transfusions. Now, 18 months from the initial episode, she is in good health. With this history, we discuss the clinical process facing severe anaemia during infancy and review the particularities of such uncommon congenital anaemia. Elliptocytosis is a haemolytic anaemia caused by congenital anomalies of the erythrocyte membrane. Diagnosis requires morphological studies of the red blood cells on peripheral blood smear. The disease is often overlooked by membrane protein electrophoresis. The condition is heterogeneous concerning clinical, biochemical and genetic aspects. Most of the cases are linked to mutations of the alpha-spectrin gene, in autoassociation regions. Search of spectrin and protein 4.1 genes mutations can confirm the diagnosis but is not routinely performed. [less ▲]

Current medical practices of school health for adolescents are more based on the screening of specific physical problems than on psychosocial and subjective aspects of their health. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed at evaluating the usefulness of a quality of life (QoL) questionnaire during the consultations. POPULATION AND METHODS: Ninety-five adolescents (mean age: 16.9 years) present for the obligatory medical check-up in a health center in Brussels, were involved in the study. Data of the medical records were analysed and two questionnaires were administrated, one exploring the quality of life (VSP-A), the other the presence of depressive symptoms (CES-D). RESULTS: These adolescents were in good physical health and had a mean score of global quality of life of 62 (DS =11.2); 17% of the adolescents had significant depressive symptoms (score > or =24). There was a significant negative correlation between the scores of QoL and depression (R =-0.680, P <0.01), the QoL psychological dimension and depression (R =-0.656, P <0.01), the QoL energy-vitality dimension and depression (R= -0.763, P <0.01). CONCLUSION: An evaluation of the quality of life, approaching the mental health of the teenagers in a multidimensional and positive way, can be useful in school medicine for better identifying the medical and psychosocial adolescents needs. It can improve the relevance of the preventive consultation and the interventions of health promotion in schools. [less ▲]

Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia is important to be diagnosed as an underlying disease in children with syncope and normal heart, because of its poor prognosis. CASE REPORT: A 3-year-old boy was referred for stress and emotion induced syncope. Primary ventricular arrhythmia, consisting of salvos of bidirectional ventricular tachycardia, was reproducibly induced by physical exertion. The syncopal events and severe arrhythmia disappeared with beta-blocking therapy. CONCLUSION: Despite its rare occurrence, catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia is an important cause of stress and emotion induced syncope and sudden death in children. [less ▲]
