In the frame of an European telemedicine project, we have designed and implemented an Andrology server that provides the user (e.g. physicians, students) with a set of anonymized andrology cases. Within this context we faced the problem of re-structuring existing clinical information sources and gained some experience on how much of the problem might be solved by the software engineer. This paper presents a method that partially automates the maintenance of the andrology case collection. Moreover, the potential benefit of XML for information representation will be discussed.
