Because of, well established relationship between seasonal variability and diseases dynamism we embarked here in evaluating recurrently diagnosed diseases dynamism at Korhogo General Hospital in Northern Côte d’Ivoire from 2014 to 2018. For this purpose, clinical data with regard 1707 patients were collected and clusterized in 25 diseases cases. Data have been submitted to multivariate and computational statistical survey with the purpose to assess recurrently diagnosed diseases dynamism from 2014 to 2018. Results supported strong effect of year’s dynamism on recurrent diseases variability by exhibiting high frequency of malaria and hypertension diseases cases. Findings also revealed two diseases clustering groups in terms of diseases variability dynamism. Of note, malaria and high blood pressure diseases exhibited a contrasting attitude in assessing recurrently diagnosed diseases dynamism. Indeed, high blood pressure disease exhibited regular increasing dynamism by contrast to malaria that displayed a relative irregular increasing dynamism. Variance homogeneity tests and descriptive clustering analysis, clusterized recurrently diagnosed diseases at Korhogo General Hospital in two distinct groups, associated to malaria and hypertension, in terms of those diseases increasing dynamism. Diseases discriminated as exhibiting regular increasing dynamism (i.e. diabetes, gastritis, asthma, gastroenteritis and bronchitis) and associated to hypertension, meanly claim to be influenced by patients age parameter as opposed to those showing irregular increasing dynamism; i.e., malaria and influenza (p>0.05). Furthermore, findings revealed cardiac pathologies dynamism as relatively influenced by patients gender and age as opposed to lumbosciatic, back pain, pneumonia and osteoarthritis diseases dynamism that exhibited sole age parameter as a source of data variability (p=0.02-0.07). To conclude our study highlighted a relative yearly increasing diseases variability and revealed two tendencies in assessing recurrently diagnosed diseases dynamism at Korhogo General Hospital from 2014 to 2018.
