Authors: Ranque-Garnier S, Eldin C, Sault C, Raoult D, Donnet A Abstract Lyme disease is caused by bacteria of the B. burgdorferi sensu lato complex, and can give polymorphic clinical manifestations that can affect several organs such as the skin, the central nervous system, or the joints. In recent years, patients' associations and physicians have been supporting the hypothesis that this infection would manifest as chronic generalized musculoskeletal pain symptoms, named "chronic Lyme disease". Fibromyalgia is a clinical presentation characterized by chronic generalized musculoskeletal pain with a m...

Authors: Eldin C, Jaulhac B, Mediannikov O, Arzouni JP, Raoult D Abstract Bacteria of the Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato complex, responsible for Lyme disease, are members of the spirochetes phylum. Diagnostic difficulties of Lyme disease are partly due to the characteristics of spirochetes as their culture is tedious or even impossible for some of them. We performed a literature review to assess the value of the various diagnostic tests of spirochetes infections of medical interest such as Lyme borreliosis, relapsing fever borreliae, syphilis, and leptospirosis. We were able to draw similarities between these fou...

This meta-analysis suggests that when symptoms of the disease are confined to a localised skin infection, treatment failures are relatively infrequent, only 2% at 12 months. Effective antibiotics include penicillin V, doxycycline, azithromycin, cefuroxime, amoxicillin and ceftriaxone plus doxycycline.The research has significant limitations, but choice, dose and duration of antibiotics appear to have little impact on outcomes. This research does not suggest that guidelines need to be reviewed.

Authors: Bondy C Abstract New treatments for girls and women with Turner syndrome (monosomy X) have dramatically improved their quality of life and health. Young girls are treated with growth hormone to enhance adult height, and with estrogen to induce and maintain feminization, and prevent osteoporosis. Vigilant screening for otitis, thyroid disease, hypertension, dyslipidemia and diabetes allows for early and effective medical treatment of these common problems. Comprehensive cardiovascular evaluation and regular monitoring of aortic diameter are essential to identify individuals at risk for dissection or rupture...

Authors: Iughetti L, Appio P, Capone L, Madeo S, Predieri B, Balli F, Forabosco A Abstract The term idiopathic short stature (ISS) refers to patients who are short due to various unknown reasons. Although it is clear that multiple factors contribute to final height, genetic factors play a crucial role. Mutations of a human homeobox gene, short stature homeobox-containing (SHOX) gene, have been shown to be associated with the short stature phenotype in patients with Turner syndrome, most patients with Leri-Weill dyschondrosteosis and some cases of ISS. The prevalence of SHOX anomalies in subjects previously recogniz...
