Erysipelas is a serious infection of the skin. In case of delay in initiating adequate antibiotic treatment, complications, sometimes dismal, can supervene. In addition, erysipelas shows a tendancy to recurrences. The prevention of an episode of erysipelas calls for correct personal hygiene and adequate use of topical antiseptics in case of skin effraction, even when minimal. When erysipelas is established, a rapidly initiated antibiotic treatment for a prolonged period prevents streptococcal gangrene complications. Elastic contention of any leg edema from venous or lymphatic origin and prophylactic antisepsis of discrete wounds help in preventing erysipelas recurrences. [less ▲]

Atopic dermatitis is under the influence of series of environmental factors. The contact with unsuited cleaning agents and rough textiles can exacerbate pruritus and inflammation. Preventive and adjuvant measures can thus help the care procedures of the disease. Appropriate hygiene measures and the use of emollients are particularly helpful. Clothing measures are also in place. Undergarments and pyjamas made of knitted natural silk are available. Other measures, sometimes corresponding to anecdotal claims--antihistamines, thermal cures, unconventional medicine, probiotics, chinese herbals, essential fatty acids--have not proven their preventive efficacy in atopic dermatitis.

The blockade of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) has been shown to be useful, or even mandatory, in the management of arterial hypertension, congestive heart failure, post-myocardial infarction and nephropathy with albuminuria, due to diabetes or not. Such blockade can be obtained with an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, a specific antagonist of angiotensin II AT1 receptors and/or recently a direct inhibitor of renin such as aliskiren. Various studies have demonstrated the advantage of optimising RAAS blockade in order to benefit of the best cardiorenal protection. The present article describes the various modalities to optimize the RAAS blockade, either by using a maximal dosage of a monotherapy, or by choosing a double inhibition of RAAS. New prospects for the RAAS blockade will be also briefly considered. [less ▲]

Topical calcineurin inhibitors, also called topical immunomodulators or downregulators, represent an innovative class of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents. Pimecrolimus 1% cream (Elidel) is one representative drug available for the treatment of atopic dermatitis. Unlike topical steroids, this drug does not affect collagen synthesis and does not alter the dendritic cell functions and the barrier function of the skin. [less ▲]

Oral mucositis the major acute effect of head and neck radiotherapy. According to the degree, irradiation may be compromised in dose and overall time with consequences on outcome. Up to now there is no standard accepted protocol. A strict program of local and general hygiene is mandatory. Analgesics are often required. Amifostine acts as a protector of salivary glands GM-CSF and G-CSF stimulate proliferation of mucosal basal cells. Sucralfate plays a barrier role. Camomile plant extract is anti-inflammatory, well tolerated and cheap. Povidone-iodine is better than chlorhexidine as an antiseptic agent. PTA lozenges with polymixin E, tobramycin and amphotericin B showed a marked power of selective microbial decontamination. [less ▲]

Thirteen patients underwent a hypoglosso- or a spino-facial nerve anastomosis between 1990 and 1996. Facial palsy was the result of surgery in 12 cases and of radiosurgery in 1 case. The mean interval between facial palsy and anastomosis was 12 months. Facial nerve function is determined on the basis of clinical examination according to the classification of House-Brackmann and our own evaluation. According to House, 10 patients are classified grade III and 3 grade IV. Our evaluation defines in 10 grade III, 7 good results and 3 fair results. As far as the good results are concerned, the mean interval between palsy and anastomosis is short (< 3 months). The permanent eating and swallowing dysfunctions are consecutive to multiple cranial nerve deficits. The post-paralysis hemifacial spasm is facilitated by prolongated electric stimulations. [less ▲]

Colorectal adenocarcinoma is a major cause of cancer-related morbidity and mortality in Belgium and in other western countries. Prevention implies a modification of alimentation and maybe a chronic uptake of acetylsalicylic acid. Treatment of colorectal cancers is based on surgery and the prognosis is determined by the locoregional or metastatic tumor spread. Complete resection of any Astler Coller stage C colorectal malignant tumor has to be followed by a 5-fluorouracil-based adjuvant chemotherapy. In these protocols, 5-fluorouracil is administered together with folinic acid or levamisole. The administration of an adjuvant chemotherapy could also be considered for stage BII diseases. As rectal cancers are characterized by high local relapse rates, their treatment should associate radiotherapy, given either post-surgery or preferentially pre-surgery, with resection and chemotherapy. Appropriate treatment of colorectal cancers thus requires a concerted multidisciplinary approach. [less ▲]

The pharmacological therapy of hyperglycaemia in type 2 diabetes becomes increasingly complex. After failure of metformin monotherapy, several choices are possible. In clinical practice, the most common dilemma is to choose between adding a sulphonylurea or adding a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor (gliptin). This review analyses the arguments in favour of one or the other pharmacological option, based upon criteria of efficacy, tolerance, safety, easiness of use, use in at risk populations and, last but not least, cost of therapy. In general, a patient-centered approach is recommended with an individualization of the therapy in function of the characteristics of each patient with the aim to obtain the best benefits/risks ratio, at an affordable cost.

Because symptoms associated with hypomagnesia are highly aspecific, this ionic abnormality is rarely searched for although it could be present in as much as 20 % of the population. The mode of correction (oral or intravenous) depends on the etiology, severity and clinical consequences of hypomagnesemia. Significant hypermagnesemia only occurs in the presence of renal insufficiency and/or acute excess administration, mainly by the intravenous route. If interruption of administration does not suffice, renal dialysis might become necessary to quickly correct the magnesemium serum levels. [less ▲]

Numerous patients with type 2 diabetes have renal impairment, especially in the elderly population. Metformin, the first choice oral glucose-lowering agent, is classically contraindicated in case of chronic kidney disease of stages 3-5 (creatinine clearance < 60 ml/min/1.73 m2), because of a risk of accumulation of the biguanide that may lead to lactic acidosis. Hence numerous patients with some degree of renal impairment are being treated with metformin in clinical practice, apparently without any harm. In contrast, several observational studies have shown that they may clinically benefit from this therapy, including with a significant reduction of all-cause mortality when compared to patients not receiving metformin. Thus, an increasing number of physicians plea for revisiting the official criteria of contraindication to the use of metformin in case of renal insufficiency. The present paper discusses this controversy and insists upon the mandatory cautions to be taken when using metformin in a diabetic patient with moderate (stage 3) chronic kidney disease (metformin being contraindicated in case of severe renal impairment - stages 4-5).
