Introduction : Langerhans cell histiocytosis is defined as a clonal neoplastic proliferation of myeloid dendritic cells that upon activation migrate from the mucosal to lymph nodes. Definitive diagnosis is made by anatomo-pathological and immunohistochemical analysis. Langerhans cell histiocytosis is rarely, yet not exceptionally, found coexisting with other malignant neoplasms, suggesting it might arise in reaction to the cytokinic secretion of malignant cells. Case : We report the case of a 10-year-old female presenting with an isolated laterocervical lymphadenopathy and a mild general condition alteration tracing back to two months earlier. Nodal biopsy was performed and revealed concomitant involvement by Langerhans cell histiocytosis and Hodgkin lymphoma. Treatment of lymphoma led to the disappearance of the whole symptomatology. Discussion : Literature beholds reports of 30 cases of the simultaneous occurence of Hodgkin lymphoma with Langerhans cell histiocytosis, which is more than fortuitous regarding the low incidence of both diseases. A common etiology could explain such an association, but it might also be possible that background inflammatory cells of Hodgkin lymphoma stimulate the proliferation of Langerhans cells, making it a reactive process when occurring simultaneously with other neoplasms. Clinicians should thus be aware of the possibility of this association and carefully exclude any other life-threatening malignant proliferation when confronted to apparently isolated Langerhans cell histiocytosis.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the use of proviral DNA as a source of viral genetic material for genotypic coreceptor tropism testing (GTT). METHODS: GTT consisted of bulk V3 sequencing followed by geno2pheno interpretation with the interpretative cut-off [false positive rate (FPR)] set at 5 and 10%. GTT was performed for 165 patients with a viral load of >500 HIV-1 RNA copies/mL on simultaneously collected plasma RNA and proviral DNA, and for 126 patients with a viral load of <500 copies/mL on current proviral DNA and pretreatment plasma RNA. Phenotypic tropism testing (PTT) results were available for 142 samples. RESULTS: In the simultaneous RNA/DNA comparison, concordance in prediction was 95.2% (at FPR 10%) and 96.4% (at FPR 5%). Six RNA-R5/DNA-X4 and two RNA-X4/DNA-R5 discordances were observed at an FPR of 10%, and six RNA-R5/DNA-X4 discordances were observed at an FPR of 5%. In the longitudinal RNA/DNA comparison, concordance was 88.1% (at FPR 10%) and 90.5% (at FPR 5%). Eight RNA-X4/DNA-R5 and seven RNA-R5/DNA-X4 discordances were seen at an FPR of 10%, and 10 RNA-R5/DNA-X4 and two RNA-X4/DNA-R5 discordances at an FPR of 5%. The overall concordance of RNA GTT with PTT was 82% (at FPR 10%) and 83% (at FPR 5%). The overall concordance of DNA GTT with PTT was 85% (at both 10 and 5% FPRs). CONCLUSIONS: GTT produced highly concordant tropism predictions for proviral DNA and plasma RNA. GTT on proviral DNA offers a promising approach for tropism prediction in clinical practice, particularly for the assessment of treated patients with low or suppressed viraemia. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Besides magnetic resonance imaging, dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) seems the most reliable tool to evaluate body composition and is often considered as the gold standard in clinical practice. Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) could provide a simpler, portative, and less expensive alternative. Because the body composition assessment by BIA is device-dependent, the aim of this study was to appraise the concordance between the specific bioelectrical impedance device InBody S10 and DXA for the body composition evaluation. METHODS: Body composition, included appendicular lean mass divided by height squared (ALM/ht2) was measured by DXA (Hologic QDR Discovery device) and by BIA (InBody S10 Biospace device). Agreement between tools was assessed by means of the Bland Altman method and reliability was determined using the IntraClass Coefficient (ICC). ICC was also computed to assess the reliability of the test-retest performed by the same operator or by two different ones. RESULTS: A total of 219 subjects were enrolled in this study (mean age: 43.7 +/- 19.1 years old, 51.6% of women). For the ALM/ht2, reliability of the test-retest of the BIA was high with an ICC of 0.89 (95%CI: 0.86-0.92) when performed by the same operator and an ICC of 0.77 (95%CI: 0.72-0.82) when performed by two different operators. Agreement between ALM/ht2 assessed by DXA and BIA was low (ICC = 0.37 (95%CI: 0.25-0.48)). Mean ALM/ht2 was 9.19 +/- 1.39 kg/m2 with BIA and 7.34 +/- 1.34 kg/m2 with DXA, (p < 0001). A formula developed using a multiple regression analysis, and taking into account muscle mass assessed by BIA, as well as sex and body mass index, explains 89% of the ALM/ht2 assessed by DXA. CONCLUSIONS: Although our results show that the measure of ALM/ht2 by BIA is reliable, the agreement between DXA and BIA is low. Indeed, BIA seems to overestimate ALM/ht2 compared to DXA and, consequently, it is important to use an adapted formula to obtain measurement of the appendicular lean mass by BIA close to that measured by DXA.

This study focuses on the concordance of attachment representations in twoparent, two-child families as an original contribution to the current attachment literature. It uses both categorical attachment patterns and continuous scores. Data was collected on 92 native French-speaking Belgian families. In order to disentangle conceptual and methodological interpretations, each hypothesis was tested in two complementary ways: first in a sample where the parent completed the Cartes pour les Modèles Internes de Relation (CaMir) and their young children (four- to seven-year-olds) the French version of the Attachment Story Completion Task (Fr-ASCT) and second, in a sample where both parents and their teenage to young-adult children (15- to 34-year-olds) completed the CaMir. Our results indicated very little if any concordance of attachment representations, either when using categorical scores or when using continuous scores. The implications of these results for both theoretical and research purposes are discussed. [less ▲]

Notre article met en scène le monde de la sélection des cochons « Piétrain » en Belgique, une race dont la génétique est utilisée pour l'amélioration des filières industrielles. Dans un premier temps nous donnons à voir comment se construit la relation homme – animal dans les moments particuliers que sont les concours d'élevage et leur préparation. Ensuite, nous montrons comment a été construite cette race et comment elle est aujourd'hui menacée d'être captée par les biotechnologies, en raison de son intérêt pour l'industrie. Une évolution qui enlève tout son sens au projet des éleveurs et à la relation qu'ils ont maintenue avec leurs animaux. L'article est basé sur une approche anthropologique des concours de la race et sur l'histoire du projet qui a permis sa création. [less ▲]
