Intravenous artesunate is the treatment of choice for severe and complicated malaria according to the WHO 2010 guidelines. Seventeencases of delayed hemolysis after parenteral treatment with artesunate have been recently reported in European travellers with imported Plasmodium falciparummalaria1. We report the case of a 40-years-old Belgian man who contracted severe falciparum malaria after a four-weeks stay in Central and Eastern Africa without taking any antimalarial chemoprophylaxis. He presented on admission with fever, headache, jaundice andabdominal syndrome.Thereafter hisbiological and clinical conditionrapidly worsened withconsciousness disorders, severe thrombocytopenia,acute hepatitis and pancreatitis, and renal failure. Parasitemia reached a peak of 37 % on the second day of admission. Since this patient fulfilled WHO 2010 criteria for severe malaria,intravenous artesunatetreatment dosed at 2,4 mg/kg was started. Parasite clearancewas obtained after 48 hours and the patient’s clinical status improved significantly.Five doses of intravenous artesunate were administered, followed by oral artemeter/lumefantrine treatment during 60 hours. Tendays after the first dose of artesunate the patient developed a severe hemolyticanemia(hemoglobin4,9 g/dL) associated with impaired renal function. Thick blood film was negative. Blood transfusion and high doses of corticosteroids were successfully administrated and hemodialysis was not necessary. Until now, no clear explanation has been given to this complication. This case highlights the usefulness of extended follow-up including haematological parametersforpatients treated with artesunate, at least one monthafter the malaria episode. 1Published reports of delayed hemolyticanemia after treatment with artesunate for severe malaria--worldwide, 2010-2012.

We report herein the case of a Belgian 76-year-oId woman who developed a hepatic tumour suspected to be a breast cancer metastasis. Radiological imaging and guided biopsies were not contributive. The patient underwent an explorative laparoscopy with frozen sections that did not provide further diagnosis, and an open left bisegmentectomy was performed during the same anaesthesia. Histopathological examination of the hepatic mass showed Echinococcus multilocularis metacestodes, demonstrating alveolar echinococcosis. As our patient denied any travel in foreign countries and has undergone regular abdominal ultrasonographies since her mastectomy, it is highly likely that this alveolar echinococcosis had been contracted in Belgium. If some imported cases may be seldom managed in Belgium, to our knowledge, this case is the first occurrence of alveolar echinococcosis contracted in Belgium. This report, added to the demonstration of E. multilocaris infection of 50% of red foxes in Southern Belgium, and the potential infection of domestic cats and dogs, should attract attention of the medical community on the possible outbreak of endemic alveolar echinococcosis in Belgium, and on the related public health concerns.

LVS occurs when there is failure in the fusion of müllerian ducts or in the regression of the vaginal septum. Primary or secondary cause of infertility, increases the risk of dystocia or alter sport performance. It is most likely under-diagnosed as it is often asymptomatic and an incidental finding.

Trichuris suis, also called whipworm, is a parasite of the caecum and colon distributed widely and considered as a fairly common parasite in swine. It may be responsible for porcine trichurosis characterized by diarrhoea, anorexia, growth retardation, dehydration, emaciation and anaemia. This report presents a case of trichurosis diagnosed in a farrow-to-finish Belgian pig herd. The infection was associated with severe and persistent diarrhoea, growth retardation, emaciation and/or anaemia in 10 recently purchased gilts and in fattening pigs. In gilts, levamisole [8 mg/kg body weight] administered once per os gave a good clinical response, as diarrhoea resolved in nine gilts out of 10. In parallel, for these nine gilts, the number of eggs of T. suis/g faeces passed decreased from 12 400 to less than 100 eggs. In fattening pigs, flubendazole (1 mg/kg BW) administrated over 5 days in drinking water allowed a reduction in the number of T. suis eggs/g and was effective against diarrhoea. Although most of the time pig whipworm infections are light and asymptomatic, in some cases when large numbers of worms are present, they can cause watery to bloody diarrhoea that can lead to anaemia. This less frequent disease should not be forgotten in the differential diagnosis of persistent diarrhoea in growing pigs. [less ▲]

True hermaphroditism in horses, is a complex and poorly under- stood disorder of sexual development characterized by the presence of both male and female gonads as separate organs or in a combined structure called ovotestis. A 3-year-old Spanish nullipa- rous mare with a history of stallion behaviour and an abnormal reproductive exam was presented at the Equine Clinic of the University of Li ege. Externally, a small vulva with an enlarged clitoris was observed. Transrectal ultrasonography showed a thin (<1 cm) uterus, leading to a small heterogeneous structure in the normal place of the left ovary. No structure could be identified in the presumed location of the right ovary. Speculum exam was compatible with a vaginal agenesis, as the cervix opened craniad the urethral meatus. Oestradiol, progesterone and testosterone concen- trations were compatible with a stallion’s endocrinology. Gonads were laparoscopically found in the usual location of the ovaries in both flanks and excised. Histopathology of both gonads showed atrophic testicular tissue with hyperplastic Leydig cells. The left gonad also contained ovarian tissue with some scarce primordial follicles. Clitoral enlargement is the first symptom most commonly identified in animals with true hermaphroditism and can be explained by the production of testosterone by the gonads, however, the aetiology of the vaginal agenesis is unknown. True hermaph- roditism in horses is generally related to 64XX syndrome with or without SRY gene translocation (impending karyotyping analysis). After 5 days the mare was discharged from the clinic, and in absence of testosterone the stallion behaviour disappeared in a couple of months. [less ▲]
