    ABSTRACT: L'objectif de notre étude était de faire une approche épidémiologique du trouble délirant (ou délire paranoïaque) et de dégager des indices cliniques pouvant orienter précocement le diagnostic, à travers une étude comparative des cas rencontrés dans les divers secteurs d'activité du service de psychiatrie « C » au CHU Hédi-Chaker à Sfax en Tunisie. Pour ce faire, nous avons mené une étude épidémiologique rétrospective sur 66 cas de trouble délirant, en référence aux critères du DSM-IV, que nous avons comparés à un groupe de 130 patients pour lesquels le diagnostic était autre qu'un trouble délirant. La série des délirants paranoïaques était composée de 53 hommes et 13 femmes. Parmi eux, 27,3 % avaient divorcé au moins une fois. Le niveau scolaire était limité et la situation professionnelle était médiocre pour la majorité. Les principaux types, en référence au DSM-IV, étaient de persécution pour 47 % et de jalousie pour 21,2 %. Le taux de ceux qui avaient commis des actes médicolégaux était de 42,4 %. Le diagnostic initial était un trouble dépressif mineur, pour 40,9 %, et une schizophrénie, pour 24,2 %. Le délai moyen du diagnostic correct était de près de cinq ans. Les délirants paranoïaques se distinguaient des témoins, de façon statistiquement très significative, par la formulation de demandes de nature autre que des soins et par plus d'insatisfaction vis-à-vis de l'évolution sous le traitement initial. Ces deux indices pourraient s'avérer utiles pour orienter l'investigation diagnostique, dans le même milieu socioculturel, devant des tableaux évoquant, a priori, une dépression mineure, fréquemment rencontrée en pratique.

    ABSTRACT: Numerous studies have reported beneficial effects of antioxidant drugs on semen quality, but there is no well-defined therapeutical protocol in male infertility. This study aimed to test the effects of vitamin E and selenium supplementation on lipid peroxidation and on sperm parameters. The study included 54 voluntary and infertile men who produced semen samples for spermiogram and for spectrophotometric measurement of a lipid peroxidation marker, the malondialdehyde (MDA), and produced blood samples for high-performance liquid chromatography assessment of serum vitamin E level. The trial was randomized and open. Twenty-eight men were supplemented daily by vitamin E (400 mg) and selenium (225 microg), during 3 months. The remaining 26 patients received vitamin B (4,5 g/day) for the same duration. Only 20 patients achieved their treatment and returned for control analysis. MDA concentrations in sperm were much less than in seminal plasma and motility and viability were inversely correlated with semen MDA levels. In contrast to vitamin B supplementation, vitamin E and selenium supplementation produced a significant decrease in MDA concentrations and an improvement of sperm motility. The results confirm the protective and beneficial effects of vitamin E and selenium on semen quality and advocate their use in male infertility treatment.
