Internal Medicine

Internal medicine is the practice of preventing and treating general diseases.

 

Very diverse diseases:

  • Asthma is a chronic bronchial inflammation leading to an oedema and a narrowing of the airways and causing difficulty breathing. 

  • Infection of the upper airways (sinusitis, amygdalitis/ pharyngitis) or the lower airways (bronchitis, community pneumonia) are the most frequent infectious diseases. The pathogenis agents Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenza are the causes of the most of these infectious diseases. 

  • Rheumatiod arthritis is an autoimmune disease which mainly affects the tissues around joints. An immune reaction allows toxic mediators to penetrate the cells, leading to inflammation and granulation of cartilage and bone.

Frequent diseases

  • Asthma is now the most frequent chronic disease in childhood, affecting 1 out of 15 children. 

  • Sixth global cause of mortality, community pneumonia is one of the most frequent and serious conditions. 

  • Acute sinusitis in adults is also frequent: 1.4 adults in 1,000 every year in the United States.

  • Rheumatiod arthritis is the most frequent chronic inflammatory rheumatoid disorder in adults. It affects between 0.5 and 1% of the population. Onset is generally between 35 and 55 years. It is three to four times more frequent in women.
