dc.description.abstractWe determined the profile of respiratory morbidity in family practice in the region of Sousse. We conducted a cross-sectional study in 86 primary health care centres in Souse over 1 year [‎2002-03]‎. Medical records for 3 weeks per season were randomly selected. The International Classification of Primary Care [‎ICPC]‎ was used to code recorded data. Respiratory diseases ranked first both for reason for consultation [‎8397/24 882, 33.7%]‎ and for diagnosis made [‎7788/18 097, 43.0%]‎. Of the 7715 respiratory complaints, cough was the most common complaint [‎54.8%]‎. Of respiratory diagnoses, 37.1% were acute tonsillitis, 26.5% acute bronchitis and 21.6% were acute respiratory tract infection. Children under 5 years were most affected by acute upper respiratory tract infections [‎44.5%]‎. Acute bronchitis was the primary diagnosis for patients aged over 45 yearsEN
