BACKGROUND: Some studies show that the incidence of Lyme borreliosis is increasing in different European countries. In order to evaluate if this is also the case in Belgium, different data sources were consulted to describe the epidemiology of Lyme borreliosis in the country during the last decade. METHODS: Data from two databases were analyzed for the time period 2003-2010 and 2003-2012 for respectively: the registration of minimal clinical data from Belgian hospitals (principal and secondary diagnosis), and a sentinel laboratory network reporting positive laboratory results...

Pneumonia is a major cause of morbidity and mortality leading to a high rate of hospitalization especially in theelderly. It is often a sign of frailty and is associated with a poor prognosis. However, taking into account the geriatric specificities (risk factors, atypical clinical presentations with "geriatric syndromes", ethical debate) using an interdisciplinary and a comprehensive geriatric approach remains an important responsibility of the general practitionner. This article summarizes these specificities and offers interventions targeted on the characteristics of elderly patients...

Professionalisation of emergency medicine and triage before most of emergency consultations led to a major reduction in exposure of general practitionners (GP) to vital emergencies, which participates in reduction of their aptitudes to manage such emergencies. The risk for a GP to face a vital emergency is weak nowaday, but did not totaly disappear. Therefore, it seems important for the GPs to maintain the skills required to manage these emergencies properly. These skills would be capacity in recognizing symptoms and signs of alarm (red flags), applying life support, and sorting the patients correctly...

INTRODUCTION: Upper Airways digestive tract cancers are the 4th more frequent cancer. They are responsible for non specific symptoms. The examination of this antomical region is very difficult for a general practitioner. The precoce diagnosis of these cancers is based on the good recognition of the clinical situations by the general practitioner. The aim of this study was to test the practice of the general practitioner in front of clinical situations typical of head and neck cancers by a Script test concordance...

The influenza A/H1N1 2009 immunization campaign did not have the accession of the French population resulting in a very low rate of immunization coverage. We conducted a cross-sectional study in spring 2010 to identify factors that led general practitionners (GPs) and their adult patients to be vaccinated or not; 43 GPs in France, included 668 patients; 29 GPs (67%) and 108 patients (16.5%) have been vaccinated; among 238 patients under vaccine priority indication 17% were vaccinated; 48% of patients thought they could receive effective treatment for influenza, 36% felt that the vaccine protected against influenza but 27% thought it did not meet usual safety criteria...

OBJECTIVES: Appraisal of the agreement between patients' reports and general practitionners' declaration in a French Caribbean population and relationship with blood pressure normalization. METHODS: One hundred French Caribbean practitioners participated in this observational survey: each of them included five essential hypertensives treated for more than three months. BP was considered to be normalized if inferior to 140/90 mmHg. We considered that there is a total agreement between patient and GP declaration when SBP and DBP did not differ by more than 5 mmHg and when the eight risk factors or co-morbidity were identical...

Pharmaceutical publicity material is a inexhaustible source of ressources and marvel. Imagination of publicists in order to get the attention on those "ephemera" was unlimited, especially in the 1960-1970 period where regulations were still limited and techniques were able to produce relatively cheap well printed documents. Pierre Lordez, Maurice Bouvet's son-in-law and general practitionner, collected a large part of those documents sent by pharmaceutical firms to promote the features of their products and mainly to help physicians memorizing the name of their drug specialities...

The presenting clinical features were dominated by bone manifestations with diffuse pain (41%) followed by pathologic fractures (22.27%) and lumbar pain (13.6%). At the hospital admission the type of clinical manifestations recorded were related to bone (91% general (60%), neurologic (36%) and infection (36%)...

The 1803 law about medicine practice ended the anarchy appeared in this field and due to the measures taken during the Convention. It was immediately applied in Moselle and could regularize the situation of 101 medical practioners, 81 of whom were "officiers de santé". Paradoxically, this lax planed perpetuation of second-order practitionners who had, however, a limited practice, and did not have all the medicine doctor's privileges. From 1804, they were examined by departmental juries. Later, their recruitment conditions became more serious...

The evolution of anti-cancer chemotherapy has led to long duration treatments, which preferentially are given at home, with the participation of the general practitionner (G.P.). The indications and general supervision of these belong to the oncologist, so thus necessitates a coordinated effort between the many physicians. A postal inquiry has permitted the collection of the opinions of 169 G.P. (more than half of the consulted physicians) from the southwest of France, in the region depending on the Fondation Bergonié...
