Let X be a Fano manifold, i.e. a projective complex manifold such that -K_X is ample. If X has dimension three a classical but non-trivial result by Shokurov says that a general element in the anticanonical system |-K_X| is a smooth surface. In higher dimension the situation is much more complicated, we prove that for a fourfold a general anticanonical divisor has at most isolated singularities. As an application we obtain an integral version of the Hodge conjecture : for a Fano fourfold the group H^6(X, Z) is generated over Z by classes of curves. This is joint work with Claire Voisin.
