Urolithiasis is a common condition, with a prevalence of 10% and a male/female ratio above 1 according to large national series. Various types of urinary stones have been described upon their mineral content and/or their morphology. Hence, a combined morpho-constitutional (M-C) classification has been proposed. In order to detail the prevalence of urolithiasis in general and of each M-C type in particular upon age and gender in Belgium, we retrospectively studied the database of a reference center for urolithiasis analysis. Between 2010 and 2013, 2195 stones were characterized. We excluded 45 nonbiological stones and 281 stones, which originated from outside the study zone. Among 1869 stones,1293 (69.2%) affected men. Prevalence peak of urolithiasis was observed between 50–60 years of age in both genders. The M-C analysis was available for 1854 stones (99.2%): multiple morphological types were concomitantly identified in 49.3%. In the whole population, the main mineral constituent was whewellite (54.4%), mainly organized as type Ia (94%). Weddellite was found in 19.8%, with an equal distribution between types IIa and IIb. Uric acid was the 3rd most frequent constituent in man, with a similar distribution between IIIa and IIIb. Phosphate was uncommon in man (8.2%), but frequent in woman (26.6%) with a type IVa1 organization. Prevalence of M-C types changes with aging, i.e. decrease of weddellite and increase of whewellite and uric acid in both genders. This retrospective analysis of a single-center database of urinary stones helps characterize the M-C epidemiology of urolithiasis in Belgium. [less ▲]

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a worldwide public health problem. Little is known about its burden in Africa. This paper reviews the knowledge of CKD in Kinshasa, summarizing four studies undertaken in the general population and traditional health system of Kinshasa. CKD was defined by either kidney damage (proteinuria 300 mg/day) or reduced kidney function (eGFR < 60 ml/min/1.73 m2). In the general population, the prevalence of CKD all stage is 12.4 %. Our work shows also the high prevalence of proteinuria among subjects who do not have diabetes or hypertension, the lack of early detection and management of CKD risk factors in the traditional health care system leading to late referral or premature deaths, and the limits of renal replacement treatment. CKD affects young people in the DRC, in contrast to the United States, where CKD is more prevalent in older people. Major determinants of CKD in our studies were hypertension, diabetes, overweight, age, lower socioeconomic status, and Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Glomerular nephropathy (mainly focal segmental glomerulosclerosis) remains the leading cause of end stage renal disease. An annual screening of the population for proteinuria and CKD risk factors is feasible and will, it is hoped, provide the basis for building a nationwide prevention strategy. [less ▲]

Demographic projections show an important increase of the elderly population. The percentage of complete edentulous elderly patients is decreasing but their total number will remain constant. The prevalence of caries (essentially root caries) and of periodontal disease is, actually, very important. The increase of remaining teeth in the aging population, is a risk for a higher prevalence of these problems. It's time to become aware of this situation and to develop prevention and adapted treatments for this population. [less ▲]

Les adénomes hypophysaires représentent une pathologie fréquente parmi les tumeurs cérébrales. Une étude liégeoise récente a montré une prévalence des adénomes hypophysaires cliniquement actifs de 1/1064 habitants, nettement supérieure aux données antérieures. Tant dans les séries cliniques qu'autopsiques, les microadénomes à prolactine sont les adénomes prédominants. Les adénomes hypophysaires sont le plus souvent de présentation sporadique, mais les adénomes familiaux dans des formes isolées ou syndromiques sont également décrits. Les adénomes hypophysaires familiaux représentent environ 5% des adénomes hypophysaires et leur caractérisation clinique et génétique a été récemment enrichie par la description de la nouvelle entité FIPA (familial isolated pituitary adenomas) et des mutations du gène AIP (aryl hydrocarbon receptor-interacting protein). Bien que l'évolution habituellement bénigne, les adénomes hypophysaires sont caractérisés par une grande diversité clinique et génétique qui réclame des moyens diagnostiques et thérapeutiques spécifiques.

Summary : Febrile Seizures (FS), despite their usual benign clinical course, are still subject of controversies regarding the need for further investigation and treatment with anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs). Our study aimed to inventory the clinical findings, laboratory and imaging data associated with FS and eventually influencing their management. 275 episodes admitted with FS at the emergency ward of the Liège CHR over a 5 year period were retrospectively analyzed regarding precipitating factors; clinical features; laboratory, electroencephalographic, and imaging studies; as well as treatment response. FS represented 1.4% of admissions to the pediatric service. 31.3% of patients had a family history of seizure disorder. 9% percent of seizures were focal, 11.7% recurrent, and 12.3% prolonged (greater than 10 minutes). Upper respiratory tract and otorhinolaryngologic viral infections were the most often implicated provoking factors, occurring in 69.5% of patients. Laboratory, electroencephalographic and radiographic studies were normal in more than 90% of cases. 73.8% of seizures resolved without intervention. An AED was required to manage the remaining 26.2%. This study confirms the favorable outcomes of FS as demonstrated in previous studies. This happens without requiring AEDs for resolution, and without recurrence. Laboratory, electroencephalographic and imaging studies, as well as initiation of AEDs should be based primarily on clinical severity. [less ▲]
