Chikungunya's phenomenal dissemination imposes now infection suspicion when returning from endemic areas. Colorectal cancer screening may be dependent of the microbiome. Even a small amount of E. coli in catheter sampled urine is predictive for a urinary infection. Prevention of pharyngitis suppurated late complications doesn't justify systematic antimicrobial therapy. A bitherapy is probably better for severe community acquired pneumonias. Due to epidemiology and resistances, management of gonorrhoea has changed. Enterovirus 68 is particular because of its almost exclusive lung tropism in children. The question is no longer how to treat hepatitis C but which patients to treat and when. Pritelivir clearly improves herpes genitalis symptoms. The first confirmed case of Ebola has reach our contry.
