The horse is particularly prone to myopathies, which can be acquired or inherited. The history and clinical signs of myopathic horses are of major importance for their diagnosis, but they can be quite aspecific, complicating the diagnosis. Often complementary exams, as rectal exploration, locomotory and/or neurological examination, blood and urine analysis, are necessary to distinguish a myopathy from other conditions. When the presence of a myopathy is confirmed, ideally its origin should be determined. The origin can sometimes be suspected by specific elements in the signalment, history and/or complementary exams, but often needs to be confirmed by the histological examination of a muscle biopsy and/or genetic tests.

Atypical myopathy is a frequently fatal disease inducing extensive and severe muscular damage, occurring during autumn and spring in grazing horses. The main features of the syndrome are the sudden onset of non pathognomonic symptoms such as weakness, stiffness, sudation, recumbency and when observed, emission of dark urine. Confirmation of the diagnosis is of paramount importance since the disease can be recurrent on limited geographic area. This paper discusses the methodology applied on 7 clinical cases referred with a symptomatology suggestive of atypical myopathy to the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at Liege University during the spring 2003. Two of those cases were confirmed for atypical myopathy. A presumption of atypical myopathy may be drawn on history and clinical signs. On living animals, the serum concentration of the creatinine phosphokinase enzyme is the most useful biochemical tests as an aid to diagnosis because it confirms the presence of muscle damage. Nevertheless, the definitive diagnosis requires the histological examination of specific muscular samples obtained post-mortem. [less ▲]

Cushing's disease remains a difficult diagnosis in spite of new technical procedures such as pituitary MRI, selective bilateral petrosal or cavernous sampling, (111)In pentreotide scan and 18 Flurodeoxyglucose pituitary PET scan. In this article, we review biological diagnostic procedures of Cushing's disease and corticotroph adenomas. According to our experience and the literature, we summarize the approach in medical treatment of Cushing's disease. [less ▲]

The clinical features of eight children with infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy are presented. Diagnosis was established by brain biopsy (4 cases), conjunctival biopsy (1 case), and the family history (2 cases), while in one case a presumptive diagnosis was made on the combination of clinical and neurophysiological findings without histopathological confirmation. The pleomorphic clinical picture and variable neurophysiological findings make a firm diagnosis difficult without histopathological confirmation. However, in the appropriate clinical context, serial neurophysiological investigations (ERG, VEP, EEG, ENMG) may suggest the diagnosis after the age of 2 years. Conjunctival biopsy is not invariably helpful, and neuroaxonal spheroids are not always demonstrated in brain biopsies by conventional techniques. However, they were consistently identified using a non-specific esterase stain and by electron microscopy. This technique is described, and the significance of ultrastructural and neuropathological findings in infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy is discussed. [less ▲]

Portocaval fistulas are rare and only exceptionally discovered in newborns. We report the case of a large portocaval fistula associated with portal hypoperfusion detected at Doppler US imaging in an otherwise asymptomatic 5 week old infant. The patient remained asymptomatic over the following two years. At that time, preoperative angiogram showed a normal portal venous system and the fistula was surgically closed. Postoperative US showed a normal and patent portal system, without evidence of portal hypertension. [less ▲]

Des diagnostics de gravidité ont été réalisés chez 64 femelles zébus de races Peuhl et Goudali (Bos indicus) aux 28è et 40è jours postinsémination à l'aide d'un échographe muni d'une sonde linéaire de 6 MHz. Au 28è jour, l'exactitude globale a été de 92,2 p. 100, avec une exactitude de 92,6 p. 100 et 91,9 p. 100 respectivement pour les diagnostics positif et négatif. Au 40è jour, l'exactitude globale a été de 98,4 p. 100, avec une exactitude de 100 p. 100 et 97,3 p. 100 respectivement pour les diagnostics positif et négatif. Les fiabilités ont varié de 89,2 p. 100 (fiabilité du diagnostic de gravidité positif au 28è jour) à 100 p. 100 (fiabilité du diagnostic de gravidité négatif au 40è jour). Par ailleurs, la croissance foetale a été suivie chez 16 femelles gravides du 45è au 120è jour postinsémination. Les principales mensurations foetales réalisées ont été les diamètres du crâne et du tronc. Au 45è jour de la gravidité, les diamètres du crâne et du tronc ont été respectivement de 1,8 ± 0,1 cm et 1,4 ± 0,3 cm. Au 120è jour, ces valeurs ont été de 6,5 ± 0,6 cm et 5,8 ± 0,5 cm. A partir du 120è jour, l'utérus a pris une position très profonde, ne permettant plus la visualisation du foetus en croissance. [less ▲]

The incidence of heart failure is consistently progressing among our population; it now represents a major problem of public health and is extremely costly for our health system. Over recent years, several well controlled studies have been devoted to heart failure. They allow to propose guidelines which fulfill all the requirements of Evidence-Based Medicine. These recommendations, however, are not always easy to apply in the individual patient. Guidelines for the sometimes difficult diagnosis of heart failure will be reviewed. On the basis of the results of large controlled clinical trials, we shall envisage the comprehensive treatment of a heart failure patient taking into account the functional class as well as some individual characteristics (age, presence of hypertension, atrial fibrillation, renal insufficiency). The different pharmacologic agents which have demonstrated efficacy will be reviewed and the strategies to avoid the potential pitfalls of their simultaneous use will be indicated. The key role of the general practitioner in the surveillance and titration of heart failure therapy will be emphasized. [less ▲]
