In this report, we present a case of Primary breast lymphoma in a 19-year-old woman complaining of a lump in the right breast and a nodule in the left breast.

The major innate barrier to the establishment of infections in internal tissues is the skin, the disruption of which leads to wound formation. Such wounds can be contaminated by bacterial pathogens thereby hampering the healing process and its management becomes resource demanding. Here, we assess the diversity of potential bacterial pathogens in the infection of different types of wounds among hospitalized patients. Three hundred

A. Mbaz Ruth Kamb, Kabengele Arlette Ndaya, Kamona Charles Kimuni, Mulongo Pauline Kalenga, Kasongo Narcisse Mwinkeu
Some diseases are accompanied with a change in biological parameters of which the dosage is possible in urine or blood. Previous studies have shown changes in parameters in kidney failure. The latter causes an impairment of the heart function later on. We have carried out a study of changes in biological parameters in people suffering exclusively from heart failure without any associated diseases or complications. The
