  • Risk factors associated with Intensive Care Unit admission in pediatric
           patients hospitalized for dengue in Cali, Colombia

    • Abstract: Resumen Introducción: el dengue es la arbovirosis de propagación más rápida en todo el mundo; anualmente 390 millones de personas son infectadas. Objetivo: identificar las manifestaciones clínicas y características demográficas asociadas a ingreso a unidad de cuidados intensivos en una institución pediátrica de Cali, Colombia, entre enero 2015 y diciembre 2016. Materiales y métodos: estudio de casos y controles anidado en una cohorte. Caso: paciente mayor de 28 días y menor de 18 años, hospitalizado en la unidad de cuidados intensivos pediátricos con diagnóstico confirmado de dengue con signos de alarma o dengue grave, sumado a serología positiva para IgM y/o NS1. Control: paciente de igual edad y diagnóstico confirmado de dengue, sin ingreso a la unidad de cuidas intensivos. Resultados: se evaluaron 24 casos y 176 controles, la mediana de edad en meses fue 142 vs.106 (RIC: 59-142). El 83 % procedía del área de urbana de Cali y 53 % era de sexo masculino. Presentar derrame pleural OR 3,4 (IC 95% 1,2-9,8) y alteraciones cardiovasculares OR 4,7 (IC 95% 1,7-13,1), incrementaron la probabilidad de ingreso a unidad de cuidados intensivos pediátricos. Tres pacientes fallecieron, todos pertenecían al grupo de casos. Conclusiones: el dengue en población pediátrica tiene un comportamiento clínico inespecífico; sin embargo, identificar derrame pleural o alteraciones cardiovasculares pueden explicar un ingreso a unidad de cuidados intensivos pediátricos y alertar sobre un posible desenlace fatal.Abstract Introduction: Dengue is the fastest spreading arbovirosis worldwide, 390 million people are infected annually. Objective: To identify the clinical manifestations and demographic characteristics associated with severe dengue in a pediatric institution in Cali, Colombia, between January 2015 and December 2016. Methods: Case-control study nested in a cohort. Case: patient over 28 days and under 18 years of age, hospitalized in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) with a confirmed diagnosis of dengue with warning signs or severe dengue, plus positive serology for IgM and / or NS1. Control: patient of equal age and confirmed diagnosis of dengue, without admission PICU. Results: 24 cases and 176 controls were evaluated, the median age in months was 142 vs. 106 (95% CI). Of the total, 83% proceed from the urban area of Cali. 53% of the patients were male. The multivariate analysis showed that presenting pleural effusion OR 3.4 (95% CI 1.2-9.8) or cardiovascular disorders OR 4,7 (95% CI 1.7-13,1), increased the probability of admission to PICU. Three patients died, all belonged to the case group. Conclusions: Dengue in the pediatric population has a nonspecific clinical behavior, however, identifying pleural effusion and cardiovascular alterations can explain an admission to PICU and warn of a possible fatal outcome.
       
  • Clinico-pathological characteristics of central nervous system tumors in a
           South American center from 2010 to 2015

    • Abstract: Resumen Objetivo: Caracterizar los pacientes diagnosticados con tumores del sistema nervioso central en el Instituto Neurológico de Colombia durante el periodo 2010-2015. Métodos: Estudio descriptivo retrospectivo. Para los tumores primarios se usó la clasificación de la Organización Mundial de la Salud y para los metastásicos se usó la Clasificación Internacional de Enfermedades en Oncología. Resultados: Se identificaron 288 pacientes, 194 de ellos con tumores primarios y 94 tumores metastásicos. No se lograron clasificar los tumores primarios en el 23,7 % de los casos y para los metastásicos no se obtuvo la clasificación morfológica (histológica) en el 35,1 % de los casos. Los hombres presentaron con mayor frecuencia tumores de comportamiento maligno tipo glioblastoma NEO (no especificado de otra manera) (14,9 %) y en las mujeres predominaron los tumores de comportamiento benigno tipo meningioma (23,2 %). En mayores de 65 años, tanto el glioblastoma NEO como el meningioma fueron más frecuentes en mujeres con 17,4 % y 28,3 %, respectivamente. Entre los pacientes con tumores metastásicos, de acuerdo con la clasificación topográfica, los tumores primarios más frecuentes se localizaron en pulmón (39,4 %) y mama (17 %). No se identificó el sitio primario de metástasis en el 11,7 % de los casos. La histología más comúnmente identificada fue el adenocarcinoma (14,9 %), seguido del carcinoma (8,5 %). Conclusiones: Para una vigilancia efectiva de la enfermedad es necesario realizar un monitoreo epidemiológico y clínico de tumores primarios y metastásicos, mediante el uso de registros institucionales de cáncer, incluyendo datos topográficos, histológicos y moleculares, según disponibilidad.Abstract Objective: The aim of this study was to characterize patients with a diagno- sis of a central nervous system (CNS) tumors at the Instituto Neurologico de Colombia during the period between 2010 to 2015. Methods: A retrospective descriptive study was conducted. The Classification of the World Health Organization was used for CNS primary tumors whereas the International Classification of Diseases for oncology (ICD-O) was used for CNS metastatic tumors. Results: 288 patients were identified, 194 of them with primary tumors of CNS and 94 with metastatic tu- mors from systemic cancer. It was not possible to classify primary tumors in 23.7% of the cases and regarding the metastatic tumors it was not possible to obtain the classification in 35.1 % of the cases. Men presented more frequently tumors of ma- lignant behavior such as glioblastoma NOS (not otherwise specified) (14.9 %) while in women benign behavior tumors such as meningioma predominated (23.2 %). For population older than 65 years old, both glioblastoma NOS and meningioma were more frequent in women with 17.4 % and 28.3 %, respectively. In patients with CNS metastatic tumors, according to the topographic classification, the most frequent primary tumors were lung (39.4 %), followed by breast (17 %). Its origin was not iden- tified in 11.7 % of the cases. The most identified histology was adenocarcinoma (14.9 %), followed by carcinoma (8.5 %). Conclusion: For disease surveillance, it is necessary to complete epidemiological and clinical monitoring of primary and metastatic tumors of the CNS by using institutional cancer registries including topographic, histological and molecular data according to availability.
       
  • Systematic review about ASSIST (Alcohol, Smoking and Substance Involvement
           Screening Test) in Colombian populations

    • Abstract: Resumen Introducción: El consumo de drogas en Colombia está aumentado y su tamización es baja. La Organización Mundial de la Salud diseñó el ASSIST (Alcohol, Smoking and Substance Involvement Screening Test) para determinar la prevalencia y el riesgo del consumo. El objetivo fue describir los usos del ASSIST en Colombia y el perfil de consumo de las poblaciones estudiadas con esta escala. Métodos: Revisión sistemática en Medline-Pubmed, Science-Direct, Scielo y Google-Scholar. Se garantizó exhaustividad, reproducibilidad y evaluación de la calidad. Se realizó síntesis cualitativa mediante proporciones. Resultados: Se incluyeron nueve estudios con 4 736 sujetos. La mayor proporción de sujetos presentó un consumo de bajo riesgo; en estudiantes fue 16,1 % para tabaco, 18,9 % alcohol y 17,9 % cannabis; entre líderes sociales fue 100 % en tabaco y cannabis, y 80 % alcohol; en desplazados 35,8 % para alcohol y 6,6 % cannabis; y en gestantes 58,4 % tabaco y 58,4 % alcohol. Los factores asociados fueron el desplazamiento forzado, violencia sexual, edad, escolaridad, depresión, estrato social y bajo soporte socio-familiar. Conclusión: Se evidencia la necesidad de mejorar la tamización del uso de drogas en el país, dado que una detección temprana es clave para articular acciones clínicas, epidemiológicas y de política pública.Abstract Introduction: Drug use in Colombia has increased and its screening is low. The World Health Organization designed the ASSIST (Alcohol, Smoking and Substance Involvement Screening Test) to screen the prevalence and risk of consumption. The objective was to describe the uses of ASSIST in Colombia and the consumption profile of the populations studied with this scale. Methods: A systematic review in Medline-Pubmed, Science-Direct, Scielo and Google-Scholar. The completeness, reproducibility and quality assessment was guaranteed. Qualitative synthesis was performed using proportions. Results: Nine studies with 4736 subjects were included. The highest proportion of subjects had low risk consumption; in students it was 16.1 % for tobacco, 18.9 % alcohol and 17.9 % cannabis; among social leaders it was 100% in tobacco and cannabis, and 80 % for alcohol; in displaced persons it was 35.8 % for alcohol and 6.6 % cannabis; and in pregnant women it was 58.4 % tobacco and 58.4 % alcohol. The factors associated with consumption were forced displacement, sexual violence, age, schooling, depression, social status and low social or family support. Conclusion: A low proportion of research was found with ASSIST. This demonstrates the need to improve the screening of drug use in the country, since an early detection of consumption is key to articulate clinical, epidemiological and public health policy actions.
       
  • Genomic and cytogenetic panorama of acute myeloid leukemias with recurrent
           genetic abnormalities

    • Abstract: Resumen Las leucemias mieloides agudas son un grupo heterogéneo de enfermedades caracterizadas por un aumento de células inmaduras. Inicialmente, fueron clasificadas teniendo en cuenta datos morfológicos; sin embargo, con las nuevas herramientas diagnósticas se establece una clasificación más completa que comprende grupos de alteraciones cromosómicas y mutaciones genéticas a las cuales se dirige el tratamiento. Se asocian con mutaciones genéticas adicionales que, en la mayoría de los casos, confieren características desfavorables a los pacientes y en muchas ocasiones se traducen en bajas tasas de remisión completa y recaídas frecuentes.Abstract Acute myeloid leukemias are a heterogeneous group of diseases characterized by an increase in immature cells. Initially, acute myeloid leukemias were classified taking into account morphological data; however, with new diagnostic tools a more complete classification is established and comprising groups of chromosomal alterations and genetic mutations to which treatment is directed. Acute myeloid leukemias are associated with additional genetic mutations, which, in most cases, confer unfavorable characteristics to patients and often result in low rates of complete remission and frequent relapses.
       
  • Sickle trait and splenic infarction, a non-foreign entity in Antioquia
           population

    • Abstract: Resumen Generalmente, los pacientes con rasgo falciforme sufren pocas manifestaciones del espectro de la anemia de células falciformes. El infarto esplénico es raro, pero es una complicación documentada del rasgo falciforme y, usualmente, se presenta en condiciones de disminución de la presión parcial de oxígeno, como ocurre en grandes alturas. Se presenta el caso de un joven sin antecedentes, quien presentó dolor súbito en hipocondrio izquierdo luego de viaje a zona de gran altura y en quien se documentó infarto esplénico y posteriormente se confirmó como etiología del cuadro, rasgo falciforme mediante electroforesis de hemoglobina. La mayoría de los pacientes desconocen su rasgo falciforme, lo que hace desafiante su enfoque, retrasa el diagnóstico y resulta en manejos inadecuados que pueden aumentar la extensión del infarto esplénico y requerir finalmente esplenectomía.Abstract Generally, patients with sickle cell trait have few manifestations of the sickle cell spectrum. Splenic infarction is rare, but is a documented complication of sickle cell trait and usually occurs under conditions of decreased partial pressure of oxygen, such as at high altitudes. We present the case of a young man with no previous history who presented sudden pain in the left hypochondrium after traveling to a high-altitude area. Splenic infarction was documented and sickle cell trait was later confirmed with hemoglobin electrophoresis as the etiology of the condition. Most patients remain ignorant of their sickle cell trait, which makes their approach challenging, delays diagnosis, and results in inappropriate management that may increase the extent of splenic infarction and eventually require splenectomy.
       
  • Pulmonary artery aneurysm: an incidental finding

    • Abstract: Resumen Los aneurismas de la arteria pulmonar son entidades infrecuentes y su tratamiento es tema de discusión. Desde el punto de vista etiológico pueden ser congénitos o adquiridos. Los primeros, generalmente se asocian a malformaciones cardiacas que producen hipertensión pulmonar, siendo el ductus arterioso la más frecuente. Otras anomalías incluyen defectos auriculares o ventriculares. Las causas adquiridas pueden ser idiopáticas o estar asociadas a infecciones (tuberculosis, sífilis), traumatismos o colagenopatías. Presentamos el caso de una mujer de 62 años, quien consultó por un cuadro clínico en el que se destacaba su sintomatología neurológica e infecciosa, con posterior progresión a un choque séptico y en quien los hallazgos de las imágenes mostraron un aneurisma gigante de la arteria pulmonar siendo este un hallazgo incidental y sin relación a la sintomatología de la paciente.Abstract Aneurysms of the pulmonary artery are rare entities and their treatment is a matter of discussion. From the etiological point of view, they can be congenital or acquired. Those in the first group are generally associated with cardiac malformations that generate pulmonary hypertension, with the ductus arteriosus being the most frequent. Other abnormalities include atrial or ventricular defects. The acquired causes may be idiopathic or associated with infections (tuberculosis, syphilis), trauma, or collagen disease. We present the case of a 62-year-old woman, which consulted for a clinical condition where neurological and infectious symptoms stood out, with subsequent progression to a state of septic shock, and in whom the imaging finding showed a giant pulmonary artery aneurysm. this being an incidental finding and unrelated to the patient’s symptoms.
       
  • Paraneoplastic bullous pyoderma gangrenosum occurring in a patient with a
           relapse of an acute myeloid leukemia

    • Abstract: Resumen El pioderma gangrenoso ampolloso fue descrito por primera vez en 1972. Se presenta el caso de una paciente con pioderma gangrenoso asociado a una recaída de leucemia mieloide aguda y se hace una revisión de la literatura sobre el tema.Abstract Bullous pyoderma gangrenosum was first described by Perry in 1972. We present a case of a patient with paraneoplastic pyoderma gangrenosum associated to relapse of an acute myelogenous leukemia and we review the literature on pyoderma gangrenosum.
       
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome after vaccination in an infant

    • Abstract: Resumen El síndrome de Guillain-Barré es un trastorno autoinmune que se presenta como polineuropatía paralítica flácida rápidamente progresiva y puede ser fatal. Su diagnóstico es clínico y se apoya en la electromiografía. En la mayoría de los casos está precedido por un proceso infeccioso respiratorio o gastrointestinal, pero existen casos excepcionales en los que aparece posterior a vacunación, particularmente contra influenza. El objetivo de este artículo es presentar el caso de un lactante menor diagnosticado con síndrome de Guillain-Barré posterior a la aplicación de vacunas de los seis meses de edad. Es importante para el clínico considerar esta asociación al momento de definir diagnósticos diferenciales, dejando claro que el beneficio de la vacunación siempre superará los riesgos.Abstract Guillain-Barré syndrome is potentially fatal autoimmune disorder that presents as rapidly progressive flaccid paralytic polyneuropathy. Diagnosis is based on clinical findings and supported by electromyography. In most cases, it is preceded by a respiratory or gastrointestinal infection, but exceptional cases in which it appears after vaccination have been reported. This article aims to present the case of a young infant diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome after influenza vaccination. It is important for the clinician to consider this association when defining differential diagnoses when dealing with similar cases, stating that the benefits of vaccination clearly outweight its risks.
       
  • How to write a scientific paper

    • Abstract: Resumen La escritura científica tiene su estructura bien establecida y aceptada por la comunidad académica. El seguimiento adecuado de estas normas implícitas facilita la publicación e interpretación de los resultados de las investigaciones; la estructura adecuada de un artículo científico comprende desde la acertada elección del título, hasta la correcta selección de las referencias. La apropiada redacción del resumen permite capturar la atención del lector, por lo que debe ser cuidadosamente escrito. La introducción debe poner en contexto el cuerpo del conocimiento sobre la investigación que se está reportando y argumentar la necesidad de esta. Los métodos deben describir todos los procesos de investigación que se realizan, para permitir que en cualquier escenario se replique lo que se ha realizado. Los resultados deben ser presentados de forma objetiva, limitándose a resaltar los hallazgos importantes. La discusión permite un contraste de los nuevos hallazgos con lo previamente conocido y cómo esos resultados pueden ser incorporados en el acervo del conocimiento. Todos estos aspectos son discutidos de manera esquemática, siguiendo el estilo IMRD (Introducción, Métodos, Resultados y Discusión) y le permitirán al lector familiarizarse con el método de la escritura de un artículo científico. Scientific writing has its well-established structure and it is accepted by the academic community. Proper compliance with these implicit rules makes it easier to publish and interpret the research results. The adequate structure of a scientific paper ranges from the proper choice of title to the correct selection of references. The proper writing of the abstract allows to capture the attention of the reader, so it must be carefully written. The introduction should put into context the body of knowledge about the research being reported and argue the need for it. Methods should describe all research processes to allow replication of what has been done in any setting. Results should be presented objectively, limiting to highlight im- portant findings. Discussion allows contrast of the new findings with what was previously known and how these results can be incorporated into the body of knowledge. All these aspects are discussed following the IMRD format (Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion) and will allow the reader to become familiar with the method of writing a scientific article.
