Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that affects mainly young people and includes periods of remission interspersed with occasional flare-ups. Entero-MR (Magnetic Resonance) is a non-radiating and a non-invasive tomography imaging technique. Entero-MR has recently proven its ability to assess inflammatory activity and structural damage of the bowel in Crohn's disease which are fundamental elements in the therapy planning. These considerations explain why entero-MR is playing an increasing role in the evaluation of Crohn's disease. [less ▲]

Background and purpose. - Cushing's disease is characterized by an overproduction of ACTH inducing an hypersecretion of corticosteroids. We assessed the non-corticotrophic pituitary functions before and after microsurgical resection of the corticotrophic adenoma. Methods. - We reviewed retrospectively a series of 98 patients (19 males, 79 females) undergoing transsphenoidal surgery between 1974 and 2001. Prolactin levels, somatrotrophic, gonadotrophic and thyroidotrophic functions were assessed and compared before and after resection of the adenoma. Results. - Before surgery, we observed an elevation of prolactin and a reduction of the GH, TSH, LH and FSH levels. These modifications were not linked to the volume of the adenoma but depended on the systemic effect of the hypercorticism or on local paracrine mechanisms. Selective adenomectomy usually restored altered corticotrophic and also, unlike (partial or total) hypophysectomy, the non-corticotrophic functions. Conclusions. - Non-corticotrophic functions are often altered in Cushing's disease but can be restored after selective adenomectomy. [less ▲]

Between November 1994 and June 2001, 194 patients with Cushing's disease underwent transsphenoidal surgery: 167 patients had adenomectomy, 14 had ante hypophysectomy, 5 had subtotal hypophysectomy, 4 had hemihypophysectomy 4 had central hypophysectomy. Complications occurred in 18 patients (9.3%), including 4 deaths (three were apparently not related to surgery). Remission of disease was achieved in 162 of 190 (85.3%) patients analyzed. Surgical failures were associated with lack of pituitary adenoma, size of the tumor and invasiveness. Among patients with confirmed adenomas, the rate of remission was significantly higher (p<0.01) in patients with microadenomas (92.6%) than in patients with macroadenomas (66.7%). Reoperation in 6 failures was followed by remission in 4 cases. The overall remission rate was 87.4%. In the 162 patients with immediate success, duration of follow-up was 10.0 +/- 5.9 years (m +/- DS; median=10.0). Recurrence of the disease occurred in 24 (14.8%) of 162 patients at a mean 4.8 years (range: 0.8-12.0 years). Our longest sustained remission is 25.6 years. Actuarial analysis indicates that the probability of a patient remaining well 12 years after surgery is 80.0%. It is 86.2% in microadenomas versus 52.5% in macroadenomas and 94.5% in the patients with postoperative hypocortisolism versus 59.2% in the others. [less ▲]

The COC (Orthopedic Society of Charleroi) has presented an analysis of operated cases. We have taken 326 files into account. The pre-operative evaluation is based upon the classification by Tubiana, Michon and Thomine. The analysis pays special attention to the post-operative results in terms of several factors: the age, the stage of illness, the extent of illness and the improvement. For this final summing up, we put forward criteria which for us are better in the evaluation of the final result. [less ▲]

PURPOSE: We report three cases of Horton's disease, in which F18-Fluorine-2-Deoxy-D-Glucose (18FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) demonstrated a clinically unsuspected extra-cranial vessels hypermetabolism. METHODS: Fully corrected whole-body PET was performed in three patients (two women, one man) for exploring a marked inflammatory syndrome. Scanning was acquired 60 min after i.v. injection of 222 MBq of 18FDG in average. RESULTS: In two patients with histologically proven Horton's disease, PET alone showed increased glucose metabolism involving the carotid and sub-clavian arteries as well as the ascending aorta, aortic arch, thoracic and abdominal aorta, and the iliac and femoral arteries. In the third patient, by detecting cervical, thoracic and abdominal vessel hypermetabolism, PET non-invasively contributed to the diagnosis of giant cell arteritis. All patients had complete clinical and biological response to corticoids. PET controls performed 3- to 6-months post-treatment, confirmed the disappearance of the metabolic stigma. CONCLUSION: 18FDG PET may show an increased glucose metabolism in asymptomatic extracranial vessels locations of Horton's arterities. If these observations are confirmed on controlled trials, PET could be particularly useful for non-invasive diagnosing, staging and monitoring atypical clinical forms of Horton's disease. The metabolic imaging could also contribute to a better understanding of the pathogenesis of GCA. [less ▲]

A 79-year-old woman of Mediterranean ascent suffered from corticosteroid-dependent chronic obstructive lung disease, hypogammaglobulinemia (IgG 1 and 2), decreased CD16 natural killer cell function and non-HIV related CD4 and CD8 lymphopenia. Such immunodeficiency could be either a variant of common variable immunodeficiency or an early stage of the idiopathic CD4 + T lymphocytopenia syndrome. She developed bilateral lesions of Kaposi's sarcoma on the lower extremities resembling the classic European type of the disease. The tumors contained both CD34 + and Factor XIIIa + cells. The HLA-DR5 haplotype was not found. Weekly low intravenous dosages of vinblastine improved the lesions but the patient died from pontic infarction. [less ▲]

C’est en 1999, que la maladie de l’aulne a été identifiée pour la première fois en Belgique. Cette maladie causée par Phytophthora alni touche autant l’aulne glutineux, espèce indigène la plus fréquente le long de nos cours d’eau, que l’aulne blanc. Les aulnes atteints présentent différents types de symptômes. En 2002, un inventaire par échantillonnage a été réalisé sur tous les cours d’eau classés et navigables en Région wallonne afin de cibler les zones concernées par la maladie et apprécier l’importance du phénomène.

Cet article est consacré à la qualification de la maladie de Lyme en France. Principale pathologie vectorielle de l’hémisphère nord, la maladie de Lyme est transmise par une tique du genre Ixodes (Ixodes ricinus en Europe ; Ixodes persulcatus en Asie ; Ixodes scapularis aux États-Unis et au Canada). Les médecins et les malades ont d’abord développé un cadrage infectieux, ancré dans la santé humaine, réservé à Lyme et soumis à une vive controverse. Progressivement, un second cadrage vectoriel s’est structuré autour des entomologistes médicaux puis des écologues, généralement étrangers à la problématique des maladies humaines. Axé sur le vecteur, ce cadrage englobe les autres maladies transmises par Ixodes ricinus en Europe qui, durant les 30 dernières années, n’ont cessé d’être découvertes : bartonnelles, babésioses, tularémie, encéphalite à tiques, etc. Combinée à ces nouvelles pathologies, la notoriété de Lyme a finalement contribué à ouvrir la catégorie « transmission vectorielle » – traditionnellement associée aux moustiques des pays tropicaux – aux tiques et aux maladies de l’hémisphère nord qu’elles véhiculent. Un troisième cadrage axé sur les réservoirs et qualifié de zoonotique commence enfin à se dessiner. Il faut reconnaître dans cette juxtaposition des cadrages – infectieux, vectoriel et zoonotique – une forme d’écologisation des problèmes sanitaires. [less ▲]

This paper is devoted to the qualification of Lyme disease in France. Firt vectorial disease in the northern hemisphere, Lyme diseas is transmitted by a genus of tick called Ixodes (in Europe by Ixodes ricinus ; in Asia by Ixodes persulcatus ; in United States and in Canada by Ixodes scapularis). Concerned only with human health and limited to Lyme, a first framing has grown around physicians and patients which are involved in a controversy. Progressively, a second framing has emerged, called vectorial and structured around ecologists, normally not involved in human health. Based on the vector, this framing includes other diseases transmitted by Ixodes ricinus which, during the last 30 years, have been discovered : Tick-Borne Encephalitis, Babesia divergens, Bartonella infection, Tularemia, etc. Linked to these new pathologies, the media coverage of Lyme has finally opened the « vectorial transmission category » – usually associated to mosquitoes and south countries – to ticks and diseases from the north. A third framing dedicated to animal reservoir and called zoonotic is emerging at last. We can see in that framing overlapping a kind of “ecologization” of sanitary issues. [less ▲]
