INTRODUCTION: Neurodegenerative disorders are involved in mortality and morbidity of every country. A high prevalence is estimated in Africa. Neurodegenerative disorders are defined by a progressive or self-limiting alteration of neurons implied in specific functional and anatomical functions. It encompasses a various range of clinical disorders from self-limiting to progressive. Focus on public health policies and scientific research is needed to understand the mechanisms to reduce this high prevalence...

MASSON described glomus tumour as a benign neuromyoarterial proliferation. It represents approximately 1% -5% of all tumors of the hand. Pain is the main clinical sign. Definitive diagnosis is based on a body of evidence: clinical and radiological but only histology will allow confirmation. We conducted a retrospective study of 11 patient whose average age was of 36, 27 years (range 8-48 years), with a mean follow-up period of 34,40 months. All patients underwent surgical excision. This strategy allowed us to achieve satisfactory results...

INTRODUCTION: Aseptic loosening is the main long-term complication and indicates total hip replacement failure. There are many and often intricate causes for aseptic loosening. Incorrect placement of the implants is the most incriminated factor. Other patient and implant related factors may also predispose to loosening but to various degrees. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study of 64 cases with aseptic loosening of total hip prosthesis to individuate patient, implant type and surgical technique related factors leading to aseptic loosening and to provide recommendations to minimize this risk...

INTRODUCTION: The rate of unsafe abortions in Kenya has increased from 32 per 1000 women of reproductive age in 2002 to 48 per 1000 women in 2012. This is one of the highest in Sub-Saharan Africa. In 2010, Kenya changed its Constitution to include a more enabling provision regarding the provision of abortion services. Abortion-related stigma has been identified as a key driver in silencing women's ability to reproductive choice leading to seeking to unsafe abortion. We sought to explore abortion-related stigma at the community level as a barrier to women realizing their rights to a safe, legal abortion and compare manifestations of abortion stigma at two communities from regions with high and low incidence of unsafe abortion...

Streptococcus constellatus is a microorganism that lives commensally in the oropharyngeal region, urogenital region, and intestinal tract. However, it can cause infection in patients with certain predisposing factors. Rarely, this microorganism can cause a brain abscess. Thalamic localization of brain abscesses is much rarer than abscesses in other locations of the brain. Brain abscess caused by streptococcus constellatus are very rarely been reported in the literature. We present a rare case of a left-sided thalamic abscess caused by streptococcus constellatus in a 25-year-old male patient who was injured by shrapnel pieces in the head and who was malnourished...

Heterotopic ossification is a pathological ossification of soft tissues. It is a benign, recurring disease with an unpredictable onset. We here report the case of a patient treated for a fracture of the left tibial tray with installation of a screwed plate. Two months after surgery the patient had a stiff left knee. Standard radiological examination showed ossification of the medial collateral ligament (MCL) confirmed by tomodensitometry. We do not currently know which factors determine the presence of tendon and ligamentous ossification...

The main debate regarding humerus fractures focuses on their therapeutic indications because any type of orthopedic or surgical stabilization finds unconditional and sometimes vehement defenders. We conducted a retrospective study of 80 patients treated initially with Hackethal's technique of intramedullary bundle nailing in the Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology at Avicenne Military Hospital between January 2000 and January 2012. The fractures were classified according to AO classification and Hackethal classification (modified by De La Caffinière)...
