Inflammatory pseudotumor of lymph nodes.

Ann Med Interne (Paris) 2003 Dec;154(8):557-9

Infectious Diseases Division, General Hospital, Via Giustiniani 2, I-35128 Padua, Italy.

A case of inflammatory pseudotumor in a 22-Year-old man is described. Symptoms and signs showed high fever and prominent cervical lymphadenopathy; laboratory findings were consistent with an acute inflammatory process. Diagnosis was reached through a lymph node biopsy which allowed a definitive diagnosis and ruled out several mimicking pathological processes such as malignant lymphoma, infectious diseases and autoimmune disorders.

Service B des Maladies Infectieuses et Tropicales, Hôpital Bichat-Claude Bernard, 46, rue Henri-Huchard, 75877 Paris Cedex 18.

Advances in radiological techniques over the last two decades have enabled establishing well-defined clinical and radiological signs for the diagnosis of cerebral abscess. Conversely, no consensus has been reached on the appropriate therapeutic management. To date, there has been no published randomized therapeutic trial dedicated to cerebral abscesses, probably because of low incidence. Read More

Ann Med Interne (Paris) 2003 Dec;154(8):509-14

Service d'Hépato-Gastroentérologie, CHU Hedi-Chaker, Sfax, Tunisia.

Background: While meteorologic conditions are thought to be related to the incidence of certain cardiac and cerebrovascular events, very little information is available concerning the onset of variceal bleeding. We undertook this study to determine whether there is any correlation between esophageal variceal hemorrhage and several meteorologic and astronomic parameters.

Methods: Sixty-seven episodes of bleeding from ruptured esophageal varices observed in 52 patients from southern Tunisia during a 7-Year period were studied retrospectively. Read More

[Indications and monitoring of antithrombotic prophylaxis for venous thromboembolism during pregnancy and post-partum].

Ann Med Interne (Paris) 2003 Sep-Oct;154(5-6):361-5

Institut d'Hématologie Biologique et d'Hémobiologie-Transfusion, CHRU, 59037 Lille.

Pregnancy and puerperium are well-known risk factors for venous thromboembolism, but the actual incidence of the disease is low (about 1/1,500 pregnancies). Pregnancy-associated venous thromboembolism is rare, though it is still the second cause of maternal death in France. Several types of prophylaxis are available, mainly clinical vigilance and aggressive investigation of women with symptoms of venous thromboembolism, or antithrombotic prophylaxis. Read More

Ann Med Interne (Paris) 2003 Sep-Oct;154(5-6):354-60

Département d'Anesthésie-Réanimation/DAR (Pr. Alain Léon), CHU, 51092 Reims Cedex.

To prevent deep vein thrombosis during pregnancy and the puerperium, compression stockings and heparin have been proposed. These measures are safe for the mothers and their babies, however low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) must be preferred to unfractioned heparin if possible. The prevention of preeclampsia (PE) has been widely studied. Read More

[Thrombophilia and pregnancy: which tests for which patients? The clinician's point of view].

Ann Med Interne (Paris) 2003 Sep-Oct;154(5-6):345-53

Service de Médecine Vasculaire et INSERM U428, Hôpital Européen Georges-Pompidou, 20-40, rue Leblanc, 75908 Paris Cedex 15.

Venous thromboembolism is the leading cause of death in the ante-partum and post-partum period. The role of genetic thrombophilia in venous thrombosis has been analyzed in several studies, but the role of genetic thrombophilia in fetal loss, intra-uterine growth restriction and pre-eclampsia is much more controversial. While we can give some recommendations on thromboprophylaxis of venous thromboembolism, data concerning the usefulness of antithrombotic treatment in obstetric complications of genetic thrombophilia are lacking.

Unité Hémostase-Thrombose, Hôtel-Dieu, 1, place du Parvis-Notre-Dame, 75181 Paris Cedex 04.

Pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of venous thromboembolism, especially in women with a congenital predisposition. The detection of these thrombophilias, with an autosomal dominant transmission, is justified if an appropriate prophylaxis is administered during pregnancy and/or post-partum. The aim of the prophylaxis is to prevent thrombotic events and possibly adverse pregnancy complications, such as pregnancy loss at the second or third trimester, intra-uterine fetal growth retardation or pre-eclampsia.

UF d'Hémostase Vasculaire-Hématologie Biologique, Hôpital Charles-Nicolle, CHU, 1, rue de Germont, 76031 Rouen Cedex.

First trimester recurrent fetal loss and severe second or third trimester placental vascular disorders are still frequently unexplained. Acquired biological thrombophilia (antiphospholipid syndrome, essential thrombocythemia) are known risk factors. Genetic thrombophilia may represent a new risk factor for placental vascular diseases, but reported data are conflicting. Read More

Risk factors for venous thromboembolic disease, during pregnancy and post-partum, can be identified in as much as 75% of pregnant women, who present such an accident. Different risk factors are usually associated in the same women. Risk factors can be attribuated to the pregnant women (age over 35 years, overweight, varicose veins, smoking, previous deep venous thrombosis and/or pulmonary embolism) or to the conditions of the pregnancy (multiparity, immobilisation, hypertension and pre-eclampsia, cesarean delivery).

Service de Médecine Interne A, Hôtel-Dieu, CHU, Place Alexis-Ricordeau, 44093 Nantes Cedex 1.

Predisposing clinical features in pregnant women are poorly evaluated in the literature. Several factors are undeniable, for example extrinsic compression of the iliac vein (Cockett syndrome), post phlebitis disease, varicose vein disease, and, for most patients, unquantifiable risk factors. Careful assessment of the overall sensitivity to venous thrombosis, on the basis of history taking (patient and family), will allow better assessment of the predisposition to thromboembolism.

Laboratoire Central d'Hématologie, Hôpital Saint-Eloi, CHU de Montpellier, 34295 Montpellier Cedex 5.

Thrombophilia is characterized by clinical tendency to thrombosis or molecular abnomalities of hemostasis that predisposes to thromboembolic disease. Hereditary thrombophilia may be due to antithrombin deficiency, or protein C or protein S deficiency. More recently, other molecular abnormalities have been described: activated protein C resistance due to factor V Leiden, G 20210 A polymorphism on the prothrombin gene, increased factor VIII plasma levels or hyperhomocysteinemia.

Despite side effects which appear upon chronic administration of opioid agonists, these drugs remain widely used and effective for pain relief. Among these side effects, tolerance is the major factor limiting the effectiveness of these drugs. Desensitization, defined by a decrease of opioid receptor transduction, would be a crucial step in the development of tolerance. Read More

Aim: The purpose of this work was to search for criteria of physical activity abuse and dependence, patterned after abuse and dependence criteria for psychoactive substances described in DSM IV and CIM10, and to determine whether these criteria could be found in individuals practising sports. This preliminary work was designed as the first step in the search for a possible physical activity dependence syndrome.

[French nationwide survey of abstinence-oriented treatments in opiate-addicted patients. Results at 12 months].

Ann Med Interne (Paris) 2003 Nov;154 Spec No 2:S23-32

Service d'Addictologie, CHU, 57, boulevard de Metz, 59037 Lille Cedex.

Unlabelled: Over the last few years, general practitioners and pharmacists in France have become more directly involved in the treatment of opiate-addicted patients with the rapid development of office-based buprenorphine and methadone maintenance programs. At the same time, demand for abstinence-oriented interventions outside established maintenance programs continues to be addressed to the primary care system.

Method: Our prospective and multicentric survey was conducted to monitor the follow-up of such abstinence-oriented interventions during a 12 months period, by means of questionnaires investigating the psychosocial, medical and addictive status of the patients recruited. Read More

Unité 472, INSERM, 16, avenue Paul-Vaillant-Couturier, 94807 Villejuif.

To date, there has been little research into the relationship between violent behavior and the practice of sport in young adolescents (both girls and boys) in the general population. Indeed, sport is often recommended as a means of prevention and an alternative to violence in adolescence. For this reason, we studied this issue in a representative sample of 14-16 year-olds (ESPAD 99). Read More
