The impact of placental malaria in African urban areas is poorly documented. We therefore conducted a study during the rainy season in Dakar, an area with low malaria transmission. Two groups of delivering women were enrolled according to the detection of PfHRP2 in placental blood. Ten percent of the women were positive for parasites in the placenta, and(More)
Placental malaria (PM) is associated with poor foetal development, but the pathophysiological processes involved are poorly understood. Cyclooxygenase (COX) and lipoxygenase (LOX) which convert fatty acids to prostaglandins and leukotrienes, play important roles in pregnancy and foetal development. COX-2, currently targeted by specific drugs, plays a dual(More)
OBJECTIVES Chemoprophylaxis is recommended during pregnancy to reduce the risk of placental infection. However, in areas with increasing drug resistance, it can trigger selection of resistant parasites in the placenta and increase the frequency of placental malaria. The objective of this study was to analyse the selection of drug-resistant parasites in the(More)
Les auteurs décrivent un chondrosarcome mésenchymateux de la phalange distale de l’hallux chez un adolescent de 15 ans. La tumeur était lytique avec une destruction complète de la phalange et un envahissement des parties molles. L’amputation de la tumeur emportant une partie de la tête de la phalange proximale a été réalisée. L’histologie a permis le(More)
