           Candida sp.

    • Abstract: Resumen Objetivo: Determinar los factores de riesgo de infección diseminada en niños hospitalizados con candidemia. Materiales y métodos: Se realizó un estudio en una cohorte de niños hospitalizados con candidiasis sistémica. La cohorte fue definida por todos los pacientes con hemocultivos positivos para las especies de Candida sp. en el Instituto de Medicina Tropical. Los casos fueron pacientes con evidencia clínica, microbiológica o radiográfica de candidiasis sistémica. Los controles fueron pacientes sin evidencia de candidiasis sistémica. Resultados: En el total de 25 niños con candiermia, la edad media fue de 4,7 años. El 52% fue Candida albicans, la incidencia aumentó en los últimos 5 años, los menores de 1 año son los más afectados. Además del hemocultivo, el sitio predominante de aislamiento fue el catéter (72%), la fiebre, hipotensión y deterioro del sensorio son los hallazgos clínicos predominantes. El 56% de los pacientes fueron tratados con fluconazol (14/25) y el resto de los pacientes tratados con Anfotericina B. Los factores de riesgo encontrados fueron la presencia de catéter y estancia prolongada en UTI (56% y 36% respectivamente) Conclusiones: El uso de catéter y estancia prolongada en UTI mas de tres días fueron factores de riesgo para la candidiasis diseminada en niños con candidemia.ABSTRACT Objective: To determine the risk factors of disseminated infection in hospitalized children with candidemia. Materials and methods: A study was conducted in a cohort of children hospitalized with systemic candidiasis. The cohort was defined by all the patients with positive blood cultures for the species of Candida sp. at the Institute of Tropical Medicine. The cases were patients with clinical, microbiological or radiographic evidence of systemic candidiasis. Controls were patients with no evidence of systemic candidiasis. Results: In the total of 25 children with candiermia, the mean age was 4.7 years. 52% was Candida albicans, the incidence increased in the last 5 years, children under 1 year are the most affected. In addition to blood culture, the predominant site of isolation was the catheter (72%), fever, hypotension, and sensory impairment are the predominant clinical findings. 56% of the patients were treated with fluconazole (14/25) and the rest of the patients treated with Amphotericin B. The risk factors found were the presence of a catheter and a prolonged stay in the ICU (56% and 36% respectively). Conclusions: The use of catheter and prolonged stay in ICU more than three days were risk factors for disseminated candidiasis in children with candidemia.

  • Complicaciones asociadas a trombocitopenia severa en pacientes con dengue

    • Abstract: Resumen Introducción. La plaquetopenia severa representa un reconocido signo de alarma del dengue. Objetivo. Determinar la relación entre el recuento de plaquetas y severidad del dengue en niños. Metodología. Niños menores de 15 años hospitalizados con el diagnóstico de dengue entre los años 2007-2018 fueron evaluados en el recuento de plaquetas y severidad de la enfermedad. Los pacientes fueron divididos en 2 grupos, según que el recuento de plaquetas fuera mayor o menor de 100.000/mm3. Resultados. Ochocientos ochenta y dos pacientes hospitalizados con dengue fueron incluidos en el estudio, con una edad media 9,7 ± 4,6 años, e igual distribución de sexo: 437 (49,5%) del sexo femenino y 445 (50,5%) del sexo masculino. El 62,4% (550 pts) presentaron plaquetas ≤100.000/mm3. No hubo diferencias en la frecuencia de fiebre (99% vs 98%), cefalea (54% vs 62%), exantema (38% vs 34%) y mialgias (42% vs 47%) entre aquellos pacientes con plaquetas <100.000/mm3 vs >100.000/mm3. Sin embargo, la frecuencia de sangrados (28% vs 26%, p<0,01; OR=1,61, 95% IC 1,16-2.23), vómitos (64% vs 57%, p<0,001; OR=2,35; 95% IC 1,78-3,11), dolor abdominal (64% vs 58%, p<0,001; OR 2,16, 95% IC 1,64-2,85) choque (53% vs 41%; p<0,001; OR=2,39; IC95% 1,79-3,18), hepatitis (definido como incremento de las trasaminasas >3 veces lo normal) (10% vs 2%; p<0,0001; OR=7,41; 95% IC 2,93-18,70), la presencia de extravasación (49% vs 4%; p<0,0001; OR 27,7; 95% IC 14,86-51,57), e ingreso a UTI (11% vs 0,4%, p<0,0001; OR 41,29; 95% IC 5,69-299,33) fue mayor en los pacientes con plaquetas <100.000/mm3. Conclusiones. El presente estudio muestra que la severidad del dengue es mayor en pacientes con dengue con plaquetas <100.000/mm3 y que las complicaciones están influenciadas por la misma. Introduction. Severe platelet disease is a recognized warning sign of dengue. Objective. To determine the relationship between platelet count and dengue severity in children. Methodology. Children younger than 15 years hospitalized with the diagnosis of dengue between 2007-2018 were evaluated for the platelet`s count and severity of the disease. The patients were divided into 2 groups, according to whether the count o platelets was greater or less than 100,000 / mm3. Results. Eight hundred eighty two hospitalized patients with dengue were included in the study, with a mean age of 9.7 ± 4.6 years, and the same sex distribution: (437 (49.5%) female and 445 (50.5%) male. Sixty-two % (550 pts) presented platelets ≤100,000 / mm3. There were no differences in the frequency of fever (99% vs. 98%), headache (54% vs. 62%), rash (38% vs. 34%) and myalgia (42% vs. 47%) among those patients with platelets <100,000 / mm3 vs > 100,000 / mm3.

  • Análisis de datos basados en evidencia para la caracterización
           epidemiológica de leishmaniasis en Paraguay: I - Leishmaniasis
           tegumentaria

    • Abstract: Resumen La leishmaniasis es una enfermedad desatendida, transmitida por dípteros de los géneros Phlebotomus y Lutzomyia. Existen tres formas clínicas principales de leishmaniasis: una visceral, y dos tegumentarias, las cuales se dividen en leishmaniasis cutánea (LC) y leishmaniasis mucocutánea (LM), todas presentes en Paraguay. El objetivo de este trabajo es describir las características epidemiológicas de la leishmaniasis tegumentaria en Paraguay. Aquí analizamos datos epidemiológicos de leishmaniasis tegumentaria (incluyendo LC y ML), tomados desde el 2006 hasta el 2017. La identidad de los pacientes se mantuvo confidencial. Un total de 2.918 casos positivos de leishmaniasis fueron estudiados. El pico de casos reportados se dio en el 2007. Una vista general muestra una disminución en la tendencia de leishmaniasis tegumentaria, donde los varones son más afectados que las mujeres, y el área endémica está localizada en las zonas este y noreste de Paraguay. Los casos en el Chaco (al oeste del Río Paraguay) están en aumento. La incidencia de leishmaniasis tegumentaria para el país es de 4 personas por 100.000 habitantes. Esta es considerada una enfermedad ocupacional ya que el 67% de los pacientes infectados fueron trabajadores rurales. Durante el periodo de estudio, la LC fue más común que la LM, excepto en los años 2010, 2014 y 2017. La mayoría de los pacientes afectados por LM son de avanzada edad. Conclusión. Remarcamos que la leishmaniasis no está restringida a las áreas húmedas del este de Paraguay, debido a que está también presente en zonas xerofíticas de Paraguay y Bolivia. Los trabajadores rurales de sexo masculino comprenden el grupo más susceptible. La alta frecuencia de LM en algunos años indica que es necesario que las agencias nacionales lleven a cabo más programas de educación en salud para prevenir o reducir la carga de LC (y por consiguiente también de LM) en el país. Leishmaniasis is a neglected disease transmitted by sandflies of the genera Phlebotomus and Lutzomyia. There are three main clinical forms of leishmaniasis: one visceral and two tegumentary, differentiated between cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) and mucocutaneous leishmaniasis (ML), all present in Paraguay. The objective of this work is to describe the epidemiologic characteristics of tegumentary leishmaniasis in Paraguay. Here we analyzed epidemiological data of tegumentary leishmaniasis (including CL and ML), taken from 2006 to 2017. Patients’ identities were kept confidential. A total of 2,918 cases of positive leishmaniasis infection were studied. The peak of reported cases was in 2007. An overview shows a decrease in the trend of tegumentary leishmaniasis, where males are more affected than females, and the endemic area located on the east and north-eastern parts of Paraguay. Cases in the Chaco (west of Paraguay river) are increasing. The incidence of tegumentary leishmaniasis for the country is 4 persons per 100,000 inhabitants. This is considered an occupational disease since 67% of the infected patients were rural workers. During the period of study CL was more common than ML, except for the years 2010, 2014, and 2017. Most of the patients affected by ML are elders. Conclusion. We remark that leishmaniasis is not only restricted to the humid area of eastern Paraguay, since it is also present in xerophytic areas of Paraguay and Bolivia. Male rural workers are the most susceptible group. The high frequency of ML in some years indicates that more educational programs have to be carried out by national agencies to prevent and reduce the burden of CL (and thus also ML) in the country.

Objetivo: Identificar los principales factores de riesgo asociados a accidente cerebrovascular isquémico en pacientes tratados en un hospital público del Paraguay. La población estudiada estuvo constituida por 43 pacientes de 30 a 80 años de edad atendidos en un hospital de Pedro Juan Caballero, Amambay - Paraguay, durante el periodo de enero a diciembre del 2019. Metodología: Se realizó un estudio observacional descriptivo de corte transversal sobre una población de 43 pacientes de 30 a 80 años de edad atendidos en el Hospital de Pedro Juan Caballero, Amambay - Paraguay, durante el periodo de enero a diciembre del 2019. Las variables medidas fueron la edad, el sexo, la Hipertensión Arterial, la Diabetes Mellitus, la Dislipidemia y el Tabaquismo. Resultados: La edad de mayor prevalencia para eventos de ACV Isquémico es a partir de los 50 años en ambos sexos y los factores de riesgo de mayor prevalencia asociados al accidente cerebro vascular isquémico en pacientes internados en el hospital fueron la hipertensión arterial, seguido de la dislipidemia. Conclusión: La epidemiología del ACV isquémico se caracteriza por tener una etiología multifactorial en el que intervienen factores de riesgo de diferente peso que se potencian entre sí, como se puede ver en este estudio con estos factores de riesgo asociadosABSTRACT Introduction: According to data from the World Health Organization, stroke is the second leading cause of death in middle-income countries, accounting for 12.8% of death for all causes. Objective: To identify the main risk factors associated with accidente cerebrovascular and serum inpatients treated in a public hospital in Paraguay. The population studied consisted of 43 patients aged 30 to 80 in a hospital of Pedro Juan Caballero, Amambay - Paraguay, during the period from January to December2019. Methodology: This is a descriptive observational cross-sectional study on a population of 43 patients aged 30 to 80 years treated at a hospital in Pedro Juan Caballero, Amambay - Paraguay, during the period January to December2019. The measured variables were age, sex, Arterial Hypertension, Diabetes Mellitus, Dyslipidemia and Smoking. Results: The age of highest prevalence for events of Ischemic ACV is from the age of 50 years in both sexes and the higher prevalence risk factors associated with ischemic vascular brain accident in hospital patient hospital were high blood pressure, followed by dyslipidemia. Conclusion: The epidemiology of ischemic ACV is characterized by a multifactorial etiology involving risk factors of different weight that enhance each other, as can be seen in this study the presence of two or more associated risk factors

Metodología: Se realizó un estudio observacional descriptivo de corte transversal sobre una población de 43 pacientes de 30 a 80 años de edad atendidos en el Hospital de Pedro Juan Caballero, Amambay - Paraguay, durante el periodo de enero a diciembre del 2019. Las variables medidas fueron la edad, el sexo, la Hipertensión Arterial, la Diabetes Mellitus, la Dislipidemia y el Tabaquismo. Resultados: La edad de mayor prevalencia para eventos de ACV Isquémico es a partir de los 50 años en ambos sexos y los factores de riesgo de mayor prevalencia asociados al accidente cerebro vascular isquémico en pacientes internados en el hospital fueron la hipertensión arterial, seguido de la dislipidemia. Conclusión: La epidemiología del ACV isquémico se caracteriza por tener una etiología multifactorial en el que intervienen factores de riesgo de diferente peso que se potencian entre sí, como se puede ver en este estudio con estos factores de riesgo asociadosABSTRACT Introduction: According to data from the World Health Organization, stroke is the second leading cause of death in middle-income countries, accounting for 12.8% of death for all causes. Objective: To identify the main risk factors associated with accidente cerebrovascular and serum inpatients treated in a public hospital in Paraguay. The population studied consisted of 43 patients aged 30 to 80 in a hospital of Pedro Juan Caballero, Amambay - Paraguay, during the period from January to December2019. Methodology: This is a descriptive observational cross-sectional study on a population of 43 patients aged 30 to 80 years treated at a hospital in Pedro Juan Caballero, Amambay - Paraguay, during the period January to December2019.
