Buruli ulcer in Western African countries over the past decade has been dramatic, it has been scarcely reported in industrialized countries. We report a patient from Equatorial Guinea who was human immunodeficiency virus-positive, presenting aggressive and multifocal BU associated with an underlying destructive osteomyelitis, in which only an aggressive surgical approach yielded to a resolution of the disease.

The impact of commercial hunting on forest mammals was studied in two regions on Bioko and Rio Muni in Equatorial Guinea, west Africa. Harvests were assessed from carcass counts in the main markets in the areas. A total of 10,812 carcasses of 13 species were recorded in Bioko, and 6160 carcasses of 30 species were recorded in Rio Muni. Biomass of harvested mammals was 111,879.63 kg in Bioko and 66,447.87 kg in Rio Muni. For the 12 prey species selected for study in Bioko, harvests totaled 7.15 animals/km2 or 62.93 kg/km2. Harvests for the 17 prey species in Rio Muni were 3.22 animals/km2 or 24.06kg/km2. We used a model developed by Robinson and Redford (1991) to estimate potential harvests based on animal production rates. Total production was 147.90 animals/km2 and 139.12 animals/km2 in Bioko and Rio Muni, respectively. Potential harvest figures varied considerably by species. Comparison of actual and potential harvests showed that five primate species (Cercopithecus erythrotis, Cercopithecus nictitans, Cercopithecus pogonias, Cercopithecus preussi, and Mandrillus leucophaeus) and one ungulate (Cephalophus ogilbyi) in Bioko were being hunted unsustainably. Only two of the 17 species (Cercopithecus nictitans and Cephalophus dorsalis) in Rio Muni were being hunted unsustainably. Percent deviation of actual from potential harvests averaged 4.98 times greater than sustainable harvest in Bioko and 1.03 times greater in Rio Muni. For the two sites together figures ranged from close to 28 times greater than potential to 0.08% of the potential harvest. Although hunting methods and the commercialization potential of species may affect their presence in markets, these figures show that Bioko animals are heavily exploited, some of them unsustainably. This poses severe risks for the conservation of the island's unique fauna that must be addressed immediately.

A detailed checklist of the Rubiaceae (coffee family) occurring naturally on the islands of Bioko and Annobon (Equatorial Guinea, Gulf of Guinea) is presented, based on herbarium collections deposited in the herbaria of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and The Natural History Museum, London. The checklist comprises 58 genera and 147 species, including six new generic records and 26 new infrageneric records. The total number of native Rubiaceae species occurring in Bioko is 139; three entities do not have formal names and probably represent new taxa. In Annobon there are 12 native genera and 13 indigenous species of Rubiaceae. The conservation status of two endemic species is assessed using IUCN criteria and it is proposed that they are considered Vulnerable.

In the last five years China has dramatically increased its presence in Africa. Despite its abundant natural resources, the notoriety of its political regime and its close relationship with Beijing, Equatorial Guinea is a glaring omission in the China–Africa literature. This article intends to fulfil that gap by analysing the bilateral relationship between Beijing and Malabo at both the official and the social levels to assess its impact on the development of Equatorial Guinea. As bad governance is the main obstacle for the development of Equatorial Guinea, the article compares the role played by Chinese companies and government in reinforcing Obiang's authoritarian regime with that played by their Western counterparts. It concludes that Chinese extractive firms play a marginal role in the financial extraversion that strongly links the Obiang regimen with US oil companies. Conversely, the Chinese government offers Obiang more extensive and stable support than Western governments to the extent that most of the undeniable developmental potential of Chinese co-operation is wasted through clientelist networks.

Fang women are known to practice virtually no contraception but for them induced abortion is not an acceptable option. Their reproductive behaviour consequently is governed by the ability to conceive, spontaneous intrauterine mortality and child spacing (due to prolonged breast-feeding and sexual abstinence).

Reports that Equatorial Guinea President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo has announced plans to bring multi-party democracy to his country, and examines the reforms proposed, which will undoubtably leave his government in full control.
