Abstract: Primary Ewing sarcoma (ES) and primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) are considered as Ewing sarcoma family of tumors (ESFT), characterized by chromosomal translocation t(11; 22) (q24; q12) leading to a chimeric transcript EWS-FLI1 in 85% of cases. It typically involves the soft tissues of the chest wall, pelvis, paravertebral region, abdominal wall, retroperitoneal region and extremities in children, adolescents and young adults. It rarely occurs in the female genital tract. We report an extremely rare case of advanced vulvar Ewing sarcoma/PNET of the vulva confirmed by Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH) in a 30-year-old woman. The patient was treated by 6 cycles of chemotherapy followed by radiotherapy with favourable outcome.

Open Journal of Respiratory Diseases (OJRD) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojrd.2019.91002
Abstract: Pulmonary hypoplasia is a rare disease characterized by a defect of lung development more often unilateral. The diagnosis requires several exams to eliminate other causes of pulmonary retraction. We report two cases at the department of pneumophtisiology of the University Teaching Hospital of Point G. The first case is a young adult who was complaining of a chronic cough. Etiological investigation required several exams including spirometry and Computed tomographic scan (CT scan). After elimination of all suspected causes of pulmonary opacity, the diagnosis of pulmonary hypoplasia was retained. The second case is a 2-year-old girl who was born with congenital cardiopathy whose respiratory complications were increasing during her childhood and respiratory explorations discovered pulmonary agenesis. Pulmonary hypoplasia is rare in our medical practice, but attention must be drawn to a retractile pulmonary opacity in young age after elimination of all infectious causes in TB endemic area.

Abstract: Background: The diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) requires an etiological research of HIV infection. The objective was to identify the characteristics of patients with DVT of limbs without other risk factors in our context. Methods: We performed a comparative retrospective study from January 2005 to December 2012. We identified 162 cases of patients hospitalized in Medicine Department of Institute of Cardiology of Abidjan with 124 HIV-negative and 38 HIV positive patients. Results: DVT is more common in HIV positive young patients (57.8 ± 15.6 years vs 39.3 ± 10.6 years, p = 0.0001). The traditional risk factors were found in HIV negative patients. HIV positive patients had no predisposing factor for thrombosis. The ankle-femoral popliteal location (29% vs 73.7% p = 0.05) was most frequent in HIV positive patients. There was no significant difference in anticoagulant therapy: UFH (60.5% vs 52.6%; p > 0.05), LMWH (20.2% vs 7.9%; p > 0.05), AVK relay (99.2% vs 100%; p > 0.05) and general measures (elevation MI). (70.2% vs 65.8%; p > 0.05). None of the patients in both groups had worn stockings in hospitalization. The stockings were prescribed on discharge (70% vs 64.7%; p

Effects of argon, krypton and their mixed pressure treatments on the quality of white mushrooms were studied during 9 days of storage at 4℃. Among all treatments in this study, the minimum respiration rate, polyphenoloxidase activity, retained color change, antioxidants and delayed pseudomonas growth were observed with pressure argon (5 MPa) followed by mixing argon and krypton (2.5 MPa each) treatments. Respiration rates after 9 days of storage were 5.35%, 6.20%, 7.50%, 7.60%, 7.91% and 8.95% for HA5, HAK, HA2, HK5, HK2 and control, respectively. DPPH inhibition percentages of free radical for HA5, HAK, HK5, HA2, HK2 and control mushrooms were 28.03%, 25.24%, 24.96%, 21.87%, 20.56% and 19.06%, respectively, after 9 days of storage. The pressurized argon treatment was the most effective compared to pressurized krypton. Thus, application of pressurized argon and krypton treatments could extend the storage life of white mushrooms to 9 days at 4℃.

Discrepancies between survey and administrative data on the use of mental health services in the general population: findings from a study conducted in Québec
Aline Drapeau, Richard Boyer, Fatoumata Diallo
BMC Public Health , 2011, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2458-11-837
Abstract: This study was based on the individual linkage of data from the cycle 1.2 of the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS-1.2) and from the health services register of the Régie de l'assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ). The RAMQ is the governmental agency managing the Quebec national health insurance program. The analyses mostly focused on the 637 Quebecer respondents who were recorded as users of mental health services in the RAMQ and who were self-reported users or non users of these services in the CCHS-1.2.Roughly 75%, of those recorded as users of mental health services users in the RAMQ's register did not report using mental health services in the CCHS-1.2. The odds of disagreement between survey and administrative data were higher in seniors, individuals with a lower level of education, legal or de facto spouses and mothers of young children. They were lower in individuals with a psychiatric disorder and in frequent and more recent users of mental health services according to the RAMQ's register.These findings support the hypotheses that social desirability and recall bias are likely to affect the self-reported use of mental health services in a population survey. They stress the need to refine the investigation of mental health services in population surveys and to combine survey and administrative data, whenever possible, to obtain an optimal estimation of the population need for mental health care.The combined use of population surveys and health services registers is a powerful tool for public health since their respective limitations and assets can balance each other. National health services registers are mostly implemented to manage the payment of health services. Therefore they can only supply data on to the population, services and health professionals covered by the health program. Population surveys provide data on topics that are not usually documented in health services registers and that can produce a more detailed description of services users. A
An application of the method of moments to volatility estimation using daily high, low, opening and closing prices

Quantitative Finance , 2011,
Abstract: We use the expectation of the range of an arithmetic Brownian motion and the method of moments on the daily high, low, opening and closing prices to estimate the volatility of the stock price. The daily price jump at the opening is considered to be the result of the unobserved evolution of an after-hours virtual trading day.The annualized volatility is used to calculate Black-Scholes prices for European options, and a trading strategy is devised to profit when these prices differ flagrantly from the market prices.

Abstract: High blood pressure (HBP) is a public health problem worldwide. The objective of this study is to determine the prevalence of hypertension in military garrisons in Conakry, the capital. Material and Methods: The study was done in military garrisons. The data concern 1025 soldiers. This prospective and cross-sectional study took place from 13 November 2014 to 13 February 2015. Only the military who had agreed to participate in the study were included. Sociodemographic, clinical data and urine dipsticks were collected. Results: Among 1025 soldiers, 222 cases of HPB were observed, that was 21.66%. They were 193 men (86.94%) and 29 women (13.06%). The mean age was 46.05 years (range: 18 - 77 years). HPB cases were discovered in 155 soldiers (69.82%) in random observations. Following the grade of hypertension: 124 were of grade I, 62 of grade II, 35 of grade III and 1 case of isolated systolic hypertension was identified. Urinary dipstick tests showed that, 3 patients had proteinuria, 26 patients suffered from leucocyturia, 11 patients suffered from glycosuria and 1 case of hematuria was also identified. More than half of the soldiers (41%) were in the army. Officers were strongly affected (80.18%), followed by non-commissioned officers (17.12%) and finally enlisted men (2.70%). Risk factors were multiple: 78.82% ate very salty food; emotional stress; physical inactivity was observed in over half of the cases. Conclusion: This study gives an overall picture of the prevalence of hypertension in the military in Guinea. The discovery of the symptom lies on the systematic measurement of blood pressure.

Open Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (OJOG) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojog.2017.75062
Abstract: Introduction: Africans ensure their offspring by transmitting their own genes. Even if adoption is a common thing in Africa, the biological kinship keeps its supremacy. The following study tries to identify socio-cultural factors that may influence the couples’ attitude towards the gametes donation. Methods: All female patients consulting for a childbearing desire and with an indication of an assisted reproductive technique with a third donor, were included in this longitudinal retrospective and prospective study at the teaching hospital of Yopougon and in a private clinic from 1st September 2014 to 31 October 2015. 100 couples were included. Chi square test was used for statistics data. The following factors were analyzed: age, sex, religion, profession, anterior procreation, existence of a common child, infertility duration. Results: Only the age had a significant link with the egg donation refusal rate. Conclusion: This work makes it possible to foresee that Africans have the same conception of procreation because one finds this desire of childbearing in all the layers of the society.

Abstract: Introduction: Hypertension (HTN) is for many decades a worldwide major risk factor for cardiovascular disease.However, hypertension control rates are globally low in the world. Studies on observance have been published in Mali but there is to our knowledge no published data about HTN control rate. We therefore conducted this study to assess the control rate in short term after 3 months management and to look for factors associated with HTN control. Materials and Methods: This study designed as prospective was conducted in the cardiology department of the University Hospital Gabriel Touré (UH-GT) from March 24 to September 24, 2017. All outpatients aged 18 years and more who came for visit and with hypertension as diagnose were involved. All patients have consented to participate in the study. Sociodemographic and data on physical examination including measures for BP, height, weight, waist circumference (WC) and direct costs as reported by the patients were recorded. Patients were asked about medication discontinuation and if yes why and then they were informed about the need to take regularly medication. The concept of chronic disease was explained to them. A formulary served to collect data that were inserted into a Microsoft Access database and analyzed using SPSS version 18. After describing of sociodemographics and continuous variables, crosstabs and finally a logistic regression was performed to look for blood pressure control predictors. Results: There was no statistical difference in sociodemographics between older and newly diagnosed patients. At 3 months globally 40.90% (31.1 for old Patients and 09.8% for newPatients) of the sample

Open Journal of Thoracic Surgery (OJTS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojts.2018.82008
Abstract: Introduction: The management of single pulmonary nodule remains difficult, since it is of multiple etiologies. The endemicity of tuberculosis and hydatidosis in our context makes the etiological orientation even more difficult. Materials and Methods: This is a retrospective study, involving 24 patients, all operated on for a single pulmonary nodule in the department of thoracic surgery of CHU Hassan II of Fez over a period of 8 years. Results: There were 15 men and 9 women, with an average age of 51 years. 45.4% of patients had a history of known neoplasia. Discovery was fortuitous in 54% of cases. The radiologic diagnosis based on thoracic computed tomography had objectified an isolated nodule in all the patients with a right localization in 71% of the cases It was a solid pulmonary nodule in 91.5% of cases, and a frosted glass appearance in 8.5%. Bronchial fibroscopy was contributory in one case which was a carcinoid tumor. The approach was a conservative postero-lateral thoracotomy in 22 patients. The gesture was atypical resection in 67%, and lobectomy in 24.5% of cases, in the context of centrilobular nodules. The etiologies were dominated by pulmonary metastases in 29% of cases, pulmonary tuberculosis in 21% of cases. The postoperative course was simple in all patients. Conclusion: The pathological antecedents and the characteristics of the nodule on the imaging are essential elements allowing an etiological orientation. However, the pathological study remains the only method to confirm the diagnosis.
