A complex case of proximal weakness

Analyzing the dynamics of patients’ access to a GP clinic, it is possible to rate the frequency of consultations: there are some patients going very rarely to their GP (one or less access in a year), and some others (so-called " frequent attenders ") go several times within a few months.

Alzheimer, her family, her GP

A 73 years old woman, one of our patients, affected from Alzheimer's disease since 2001, had an epileptic fit in the morning, a couple of hours after waking up. Her family called us and we went immediately to visit her at home, and while waiting for the ambulance we tried to calm down the family.

Family doctors are better  placed than other professions to see what is wrong with all parts of healthcare and better placed to recognise the value of collaborative solutions. Most of the world came to recognise this as long ago as 1978 at the Alma Ata consensus conference and Starfield has demonstrated it in her comparison of healthcare systems – high quality, cost – efficient healthcare needs to have broad – visioned primary care at its heart.

We present here a case which demonstrates how much important patient – doctor relationship is. Our practice was visited by a young lady, our patient for many years, a mother of a  17 month old boy. She said since the previous day her baby developed a large exanthema with dark red or purple papules, having noted abruptly “red points" series on baby’s arms. Having examined better, the rash was covering legs and buttock also. The baby was feeling well and afebrile.
