This review of articles published in 2011 covers a large spectrum of topics that are of interest for the practice of general internal medicine and of primary care. Authors discuss public health issues, such as sleep disorders and their relationship with subsequent weight disorders, and the benefits of commercial weight reduction programs. Clinical topics, such as the management of victims of sexual violence and screening strategies for lung cancer, streptococcal pharyngitis, functional bowel disorders and hypertension in ambulatory settings are also reviewed. Besides, authors cover therapeutic issues, such as the treatment of hand arthritis with chondroitin sulfate and the management of plantar warts with salicylic acids and cryotherapy.
