In B. procyonis–endemic areas, cages used to house raccoons should be thoroughly decontaminated by fl aming, or cages should be dedicated for use by raccoons. Because B.(More)
Human enteroviruses (HEVs) are endemic worldwide and among the most common viruses infecting humans. Nevertheless, there are very limited data on the circulation and genetic diversity of HEVs in developing countries and sub-Saharan Africa in particular.

We studied the number of mollusks collected according to a specific protocol: 2 samplers prospecting in opposite directions for 1 min 30 s at 10 collection points regularly distributed on the site, for a total of 2 times 15 minutes. Because of the good reproducibility of the results of these collections, this method can be used for quantitative studies. A(More)

Futuna is a small Polynesian island in the South Pacific with a population of 3,612 in 2013. The first human leptospirosis case was confirmed in 1997. Active surveillance started in 2004.

Ductal plate malformations (DPM) present with a wide phenotypic spectrum comprising Von Meyenburg complexes (VMC), Caroli disease (CD), Caroli syndrome (CS), and autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD). Variants in PKHD1 are responsible for ARPKD and CS with a high inter- and intra-familial phenotypic variability. Rare familial cases of CD had(More)
