We describe 2 new cases of Alexander's disease, the first to be reported in Belgium. The first patient, a 4-year-old girl, presented with progressive megalencephaly, mental retardation, spastic tetraparesis, ataxia and epilepsy: post-mortem examination showed widespread myelin loss with Rosenthal fibers (RFs) accumulation throughout the neuraxis. She was the third of heterozygotic twins, the 2 others having developed normally and being alive at age 5 years. The second patient developed at age 10 years and over a decade spastic paraparesis, palatal myoclonus, nystagmus, thoracic hyperkyphosis and thoraco-lumbar scoliosis with radiological findings of bilateral anterior leukoencephalopathy. Brain stereotactic biopsy at age 16 years demonstrated numerous RFs. With these 2 cases, we review the literature on the various clinico-pathological conditions reported as Alexander's disease. We discuss the nosology of this entity and the pathogeny of RFs formation and dysmyelination. Clues to the diagnosis of this encephalopathy in the living patient are briefly described. [less ▲]

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is a serious condition which requires rapid hospital management. In this article, we review the current recommendations concerning AMI treatment, as well as our therapeutic approach, which is based on the evidence provided by several large well controlled clinical trials. Mid and long term prognosis are mainly related to the development of left ventricular dysfunction which determines heart failure, the occurrence of severe ventricular arrhythmias and the persistence of residual myocardial ischemia. Several treatments (aspirin, beta-blockade, ACE inhibitors, statins) have shown their benefit in terms of secondary prevention. [less ▲]

Beside acute rejection or immunosuppressive therapy toxicity, infection by Polyomavirus BK, usually not aggressive in immunoactive patients, has emerged as an important factor affecting graft function in renal transplant recipients. Indeed, one of the most important complications of BK infection is nephropathy. Viral replication in the urinary tract as assessed by the presence of "decoy cells", or by a positive PCR for BK virus has been detected in up to half of the recipients but only 5% will present nephropathy which is usually the only sign. The most common risk factors for this emerging new cause are new immunosuppressive drugs and rejection episodes. The gold standard to diagnose BK nephropathy is immunohistochemical staining for large T antigen in graft biopsy specimens. Urine cytology examination and DNA BK PCR are used as a screening test. The prognosis in BK nephropathy has been considered to be poor. The early reduction of immunosuppression can improve the prognosis and perhaps also cidofovir or leflunomide use. [less ▲]
