Cancer ani: Epidemiology and etiology. A review of literature 1980-1999

Anale kanker is een zeldzame tumor, die vaker aangetroffen wordt bij vrouwen. De diagnose wordt vaak gesteld in het zesde of zevende levensdecennium.
Vanaf 1960 stijgt de incidentie wereldwijd in de stedelijke, maar niet in de landelijke gebieden. Bij mannen treedt deze stijging voornamelijk op jonge en middelbare leeftijd op. Ongehuwde mannen lopen meer risico. Er is een sterk verband met mannelijke homoseksuele ervaring en een geschiedenis van condylomata (HPV-infectie).
Anale seks vóór de leeftijd van 30 jaar vormt voor beide geslachten een risicofactor. Anale kanker is geassocieerd met gonorroe bij mannen zonder een geschiedenis van wratten, en met herpes simplex type 2 en Chlamydia trachomatis bij vrouwen. Per 1.000 aidsgevallen wordt eenmaal de diagnose gesteld van anale kanker.
Roken is een belangrijke risicofactor. Overtuigende cijfers ontbreken dat goedaardige letsels anale kanker veroorzaken. Tevens is geen verband aangetoond met inflammatoir darmlijden. Transplantatiepatiënten lopen wel een verhoogd risico.
Anale kanker deelt met baarmoederhalskanker de volgende risicofactoren: roken, seksueel gedrag en anogenitale infecties.

Hantavirosis in Europe: A review of literature.

Hantavirosis in Europe: a review
Hantavirosis is a zoonosis transmitted to humans via contact with, or inhalation of excretions of mice and rats. The members of the genus Hantavirus cause a haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) or the hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS). To date more than 33 different serotypes are detected, of which at least 5 are clinically important. Each serotype has a specific rodent reservoir host and geographic distribution. The Hantavirus is the only cause of haemorrhagic fever in the northern hemisphere. In Belgium a mild form of haemorrhagic fever (nephropathia epidemica) is reported, caused by the Puumala serotype and spread by the red bank vole (Clethrionomys glareolus). The clinical presentation of the disease is sudden with high fever, low back-ache and headache. After a few days the patient develops an acute renal failure with proteinuria. The treatment is supportive, only exceptionally renal dialysis will be necessary. Because there is no commercial vaccin available, the essential preventive measures are the reduction or avoidance of the contact with (excretions of) rodents.

Ratttenbeet en rattenbeetkoorts.

Ratbite and ratbite fever.


Rat-borne diseases are leptospirosis, hantavirosis, tulaeremia, plague, rickettsiosis, pasteurellosis, rat-bite fever and parasitical infections. Rat-bites are probably underreported. Up to 10 percent results in rat-bite fever (RBF). RBF is a designation for 2 diseases caused by different Gram-negative bacteria: streptobacillary RBF, by Streptobacillus moniliformis, a rod-shaped bacteria and less common spirillary RBF or "sodoku", by Spirillum minor, a spiral-shaped bacteria which occurs more in Asia (Japan).
Streptobacillary RBF presents as a local skin lesion, followed abruptly by flu-like illness with fever, chills, headache, vomiting, pain of joints or muscles about 3-10 days after the initial injury. Within 2-4 days a diffuse maculopapular or petechial rash appears, involving the extremities, especially the palms and soles. Transmission occurs by a bite or scratch of a rodent or predator of rats, as well as by ingestion of food or water contaminated by a rat. Ingestion leads to the gastrointestinal form of disease known as "Haverhill fever", characterized by pharyngitis and vomiting. Relapsing fever and polyarthritis develop in 30 and 50 percent respectively.
Spirillary RBF has a longer incubation period, the wound may reappear at the time of onset of the systemic illness and arthritis is less common.
The treatment of choice consists of penicillin. The diagnosis can easily be overlooked.
