The evaluation of an obese subject aims at better understanding the disease, its causes and consequences, in order to optimize its management. Schematically, this task can be done in three successive steps. First, it is necessary to analyse data from the past, by asking about family and personal history. Then, the present data should be carefully analysed, especially the severity of overweight, its type of distribution and the importance of associated complications. Finally, it is mandatory to project these data into the future, in order to assess the final prognosis of the obese patient allowing a better definition of the goals and the therapeutical strategies.

A decrease in plasma HDL cholesterol concentration is considered as a major cardiovascular risk factor and is a prevalent lipid abnormality among patients with coronary heart disease. This condition is most often observed in the presence of hypertriglyceridaemia, generally linked to the insulin resistance syndrome, but may also be associated to elevated LDL cholesterol level or even be present alone (hypoalphalipoproteinaemia). The decision to treat a patient with low HDL level depends on the individual overall cardiovascular risk which should be evaluated as carefully as possible. The investigation should look for causes which may favour this metabolic condition, such as bad life habits or possible pharmacological interferences. [less ▲]

Potassium is the most important intracellular cation,playing a role in neuromuscular excitability. Dyskaliema is common. The consequence of this ionic perturbation could be serious related to its magnitude. Thus a quick etiological approach and a medical intervention are needed to rapidly correct this potentially lethal ionic disturbance and prevent its recurrence. [less ▲]

Magnesium (Mg) therapy is often proposed against stress and to correct asthenia. Thus our aim has been to review the role of Mg, the mechanisms of its homeostasis before detailing the clinical presentations and etiologies of hypo- and hypermagnesemia and their exploration. Hypomagnesemia frequently occurs but is clinically rarely recognized without biological serum ionic determinations because causing atypical signs miming those of other ion deficiencies. Hypermagnesemia is uncommon but often occurs in the presence of renal insufficiency especially with excess of Mg administration. [less ▲]

Burning mouth is a symptom typical for the oral mucosa. In contrast, pruritus is absent at this site. The situation which is the reverse on the skin can be explained by microanatomical differences in the sensorial innervation and by a different balance between neuromediators. Burning mouth sensation calls for the search of a series of diseases. However, it is most often a monosymptomatic expression of a minimal lichenoid stomatitis. [less ▲]

A consultation motivated by an enlarged red leg is a common situation. The causes are multiple and the diagnosis primarily relies on case history and physical examination distinguishing inflammatory red legs from erythemato-violaceous presentations. Additional diagnostic search cannot be described as a single standardized procedure. Each disease calls for specific and different paraclinical investigations. The most frequent cause is erysipelas or a thrombophlebitis. Some vascular malformations and some functional circulatory disturbances are also possible, as well as sequelae of panniculitis or borreliosis. [less ▲]

A presumed melanoma metastasis is sometimes found without any evidence for the primary neoplasm. Such an orphan metastasis merits a complementary exploration. Searching for the primary melanoma must then be performed using non invasive and clinically oriented methods. Beside a thorough skin examination, otorhinolaryngological, ophtalmic and gynecologic searches are recommended. In addition, paraclinical investigations are conducted according to the metastatic location, the gender and the functional complaints of the patient. The prognosis of these orphan metastases is not more dramatic than when the primary lesion is identified. Therapies are similar to those proposed in the classical presentation of the disease.

Muscle biopsy is a valuable tool in the diagnosis of many neuromuscular disorders. It is an invasive investigation that will be considered after careful clinical examination, supplemented by biological and electrophysiological studies. The biopsy procedure and the subsequent processing of specimen in the laboratory significantly influence the information provided by the microscopic examination of muscle tissue. They are reviewed in details in this article. Close collaboration between clinicians and neuropathologists in the setting of an optimized procedure will further increase the diagnostic yield of muscle biopsy. [less ▲]

There are a large number of conditions of known or unknown causes that have a tendency to alveolar wall fibrosis. The patient usually presents with progressive dyspnoea and the chest radiograph shows bilateral shadows whereas physiological measurements show a restrictive defect. Because of implications with regard to treatment and prognosis, diagnosis and staging of the disease are important. Computed tomography ("high resolution") and bronchoalveolar lavage are very useful at all stages of management of interstitial lung disease. [less ▲]

Renal artery stenosis can present 2 clinical pictures, sometimes associated and potentially treatable, due mainly to atherosclerosis, but also to fibromuscular dysplasia. The first possible presentation is renovascular hypertension which represents 1% of unselected hypertensive populations. The second possible presentation is ischemic renal disease, which represent 10% of the new indications for dialysis therapy and has a 50% mortality rate at 3 years. To explore this disease, arteriography, the gold standard, must be reserved for confirmation and treatment. Hypertension induced by the stenosis is best approached by captopril renal MAG 3 scintigraphy. Measurement of the stenosis severity can be performed either by duplex ultrasonography, magnetic resonance angiography or spinal CT angiography according to patients'characteristics, local experience and facilities. This disease must be searched in the presence of renal insufficiency of unknown cause or refractory hypertension. [less ▲]

Cancers rarely coexist with pregnancy. Cutaneous melanoma, however, is one of the most frequently encountered neoplasms during pregnancy. Gestation may also be a period during which the aspect of some melanocytic naevi can change eventhough the tumor remains benign. Distinction between a benign and a malignant lesion may then be a dilemma. Clinical morphometry, dermoscopy, skin surface biopsy, conventional histology and immunohistochemistry are valuable means that can be used to secure maximum diagnostic confidence. [less ▲]

To formally document the presence of the bacillus of Koch in meninges still remains difficult and depends on many variables. We report two cases where the diagnosis proved difficult. The presentation of tuberculous meningitis can take several aspects. Mantoux reaction is frequently negative. The BK cultures, which demonstrate the diagnosis, depend on the volume of CSF and on the importance of BK dissemination. It, unfortunately, remains difficult to make the diagnosis of tuberculous meningitis even though this pathology can have extremely deleterious consequences. [less ▲]
