Numerous hospitals contain unexploited knowledge deposits. These often take the form of unstructured records with heterogeneous content, which, at various levels of those organizations, register past cases. Those records are for instance patient medical records. Accessing the knowledge and experience they gather would help us to handle present cases. We present here a method to normalize textual reports in foetopathology in order to constitute a proper case base that will be the target of case-based reasoning techniques. Statistics of noise and silence generated by this method on 10 cases are presented.
