Bull Soc Pathol Exot 2019 ;112(4):213-219

Faculté des sciences de la santé, université Marien-Ngouabi de Brazzaville, Congo.

The experience of the adolescent with homozygous sickle-cell disease is influenced by several factors that differentiate it from the older child entirely dependent on his parents. The objective of this study was to describe the state of health and to assess the quality of follow-up and to identify the determinants of poor monitoring of adolescent sickle-cell followed in Brazzaville for an average of 12 ± 9.6 years, starting from a cross-sectional study carried out at the Brazzaville University Hospital from March to September 2016.

[Epidemiology of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis in Algeria through Molecular Characterization].

Bull Soc Pathol Exot 2019 ;112(3):147-152

Laboratoire de biologie parasitaire, institut Pasteur d'Algérie, route du Petit-Staoueli, Dely-Brahim, Alger 16000, Algérie.

Three distinct noso-epidemiological cutaneous leishmaniasis (LC) entities coexist in Algeria: the so-called sporadic form of the North (LCN), the zoonotic form (LCZ) and the chronic form (LCC). The precise identification of the parasitic species involved in each of the forms makes it possible to specify the geographical distribution of each of the forms raised, to distinguish their clinical aspects, to guide the therapeutic behaviors and to adapt the control programs. Ninety-seven (97) human strains from 97 cases of LC were subjected to molecular characterization by PCR-ITS1 followed by sequencing of this inter-gene space. Read More

Quantitative Inventory of Mosquito Larvae (Diptera: Culicidae) and Physicochemical Analysis of Aquatic Habitats in the Region of Fez, Morocco.

Bull Soc Pathol Exot 2019 ;112(2):105-113

Laboratory of Biotechnology and Preservation of Natural Resources, Sidi-Mohamed-ben-Abdellah University, Faculty of Sciences Dhar-El-Mahraz, 30000 Fez, Morocco.

Mosquitoes occupy a major health problem, as a potential vector for the transmission of many pathogens, the most important of which in Morocco are Plasmodium parasites and West Nile fever virus. Acquiring knowledge about the biotypology of these mosquitoes is an essential step in any control strategy. Thus, the objective of this study is to draw up an inventory of the culicidian fauna in the Fez region (North-central part of Morocco) and to determine the physicochemical parameters influencing the production of mosquito larvae of aquatic habitats in this area.

Maladies infectieuses et vecteurs, écologie, génétique, évolution et contrôle (MIVEGEC), IRD, CNRS, Université de Montpellier, 911 av. Agropolis, BP 64501, 34394 Montpellier, France.

Big cities have thrived on all continents, so have domestic and industrial wastes not to mention the often irrational use of agricultural inputs (fertilizers and pesticides) detrimental to plants and animals. One hundred and eighty million tons of fertilizers and 2.4 million tons of pesticides are spread every year worldwide. Read More

[Ivory-Coast: Textbooks Misinform on HIV].

Authors:
B Seytre

Bull Soc Pathol Exot 2019 ;112(2):90-95

bnscommunication, 7 rue Ledion, 75014 Paris, France.

Schools are considered as one of the most effective vectors for education on sexually transmitted diseases among young people. We report here the results of a study of HIV infection as presented in school textbooks in Ivory Coast, conducted in June 2018 as part of the development of a communication strategy to increase demand for HIV infection testing, especially among young people. Surprisingly, even though the textbooks studied were published between 2007 and 2017, almost all of them stated that HIV infection leads to death, with no mention of the existence of treatments that make it possible to live in good health.

[About a Case of Febrile Gastroenteritis Due to Strongyloidiasis in a Gabonese Patient Treated for Lupus].

Bull Soc Pathol Exot 2019 ;112(1):12-13

CHU de Libreville, BP 2228, Gabon.

Srongyloidiasis can sometimes be a source of diagnostic wandering in a patient with an autoimmune disease living in a tropical environment, despite systematic deworming with albendazole (400 mg/day/3 days), prior to the starting of a corticotherapy. We report an observation of a febrile gastroenteritis complicated by signs of intra and extracellular dehydration, in a 37-year-old lupus patient, including duodenal biopsies, and stool parasitology, which led to the diagnosis of strongyloidiasis effectively treated by ivermectin per os (two doses) of 200 micrograms/kg, once every 2 weeks apart), following failure of a first 5-days course of albendazole (400 mg/day).

[Reflections on Three Episodes of Louis Pasteur's Life as Seen in the William Dieterle's Movie (1936)].

Bull Soc Pathol Exot 2019 ;112(1):22-29

Société de pathologie exotique, hôpital Pitié-Salpêtrière, 47-83, boulevard de l'Hôpital, F-75651 Paris cedex 13, France.

Despite the criticism and reservations made about him still nowadays, Louis Pasteur may be considered one of the most important scientists of the last two centuries in public health, even if the work of the numerous scientists who preceded him have largely contributed to the successes he obtained without following too much to the rules of deontology and ethics currently in force in the world of research and medicine. He has definitively put down, by his experiments, the "theory of spontaneous generation" in force since antiquity, validated that of "germs or microbes", enacted the first rules of asepsis, while inspiring those of the antisepsis applied by Joseph Lister, and developed a certain number of vaccinations in veterinary and human medicine, including the anti-rabies, the one which made him famous all over the world. All this was not done without difficulty and Pasteur encountered for a large part of his life the misunderstanding of his contemporaries and the hostility of the medical world to which he did not belong.

Bull Soc Pathol Exot 2019 ;112(1):14-21

INSERM U1027, Université de Toulouse 3, Toulouse, France.

We report the attitudes and practices of health care workers involved in the disclosure process to adolescents living with HIV (ALHIV) in a network including West and Central African French-speaking countries, and the experiences of young living with HIV (YLHIV). During a three-day workshop in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, caregivers (doctors, psychologists, social workers) from 19 pediatric HIV treatment sites shared their practices and difficulties, and four YPLHIV their own disclosure experience. Thirty five participants from eight West/Central African countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Mali, Democratic Republic of Congo, Senegal, Togo) contributed: 14 doctors, eight psychologists, six counselors, three social workers.

In reaction to the speed and ease with which a high level of resistance against was induced in vivo in a mouse NOD/SCID IL-Ry model by sub-therapeutic doses of artesunate [2], this text begins a plea for concrete measures to limit the risk of eventually appearing the same phenomenon in the field, including a strengthening of the fight against the use of artesunate oral monotherapy, tablet often under-dosed or artemisinin herbal tea and the adoption of more reliable and more efficient means than those currently used to detect the emergence of resistance earlier and a relaunch of the search for new antimalarials.
