ABSTRACT

Resumen La trombosis venosa cerebral (TVC) es una presentación clínica poco común del tromboembolismo venoso caracterizada por cefalea, crisis convulsivas, déficits neurológicos focales y papiledema. El diagnóstico es confirmado con Tomografía axial computarizada (TAC) de cráneo y Resonancia magnética nuclear (RMN) cerebral. La TVC tiene una relación importante con el virus de inmunodeficiencia humana (VIH), ya que los pacientes VIH positivos cursan con hiperviscosidad san guínea, alteraciones de factores anticoagulantes endógenos y riesgo de sobreinfección, entre otros; que predisponen a estados protrombóticos y lesión vascular como lo es la TVC. El tratamiento de la TVC es terapia anticoagulante, por lo general se utiliza heparina no fraccionada o heparina de bajo peso molecular para la fase aguda y anticoagulantes orales como la warfarina para el mantenimiento posterior. Reportamos el primer caso documentado de TVC en un paciente VIH positivo en Colombia.


Abstract Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is a rare clinical presentation of venous thromboembolism characterized by headache, seizures, neurological deficits and papi lledema. The diagnosis is confirmed using computed tomography scan (CT scan) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain. CVT has an important relationship with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) given that HIV-positive patients may present with blood hyperviscosity, irregular levels of endogenous anticoagulation factors and risk of sepsis among others, that predispose to prothrombotic states and vascular injury such as CVT. The treatment of CVT is anticoagulant therapy, generally unfractionated heparin or low molecular weight heparin for the early phase and oral anticoagulants such as warfarin for the late phase. This case reports the first documented case of CVT in an HIV positive patient in Colombia.

ABSTRACT

Resumen La trombosis de senos venosos cerebrales es un evento infrecuente en la población pediátrica y sus manifestaciones clínicas pueden variar dependiendo de la localización y extensión de la lesión, etiología o grupo etario (1); así mismo, la asociación de esta patología con virus es poco común, sin embargo, se han repor tado casos de trombosis de senos venosos en pacientes adultos con SARS-CoV-2 en relación con los mecanismos de lesión endotelial y respuesta inflamatoria que desencadena mecanismos procoagulantes. A continuación se presenta el primer caso reportado en Colombia de un caso de trombosis venosa cerebral en un lactante previamente sano, que debuta con un cuadro infeccioso gastrointestinal que resuelve y una semana después se presenta con cefalea y paralisis del VI par craneal derecho. Se documentó por angioto mografía trombosis del seno venoso sagital con extensión a senos transversos; los laboratorios fueron negativos para otras causas sistémicas y con prueba de anticuerpos para coronavirus positiva.


Abstract Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis is infrequent in the pediatric population and its clinical manifestations may vary depending on the anatomical location and the extent of the lesion, etiology or age group(1). The association of this pathology with viruses is uncommon, however, cases in adults with SARS-Cov2 have been reported triggered by procoagulant mechanisms due to endothelial injury and inflammatory response. The following article is the first reported case in Colombia of cerebral venous thrombosis in a previously healthy child, who debuted with gastrointestinal infectious disease and a week later with headache and sixth right cranial nerve palsy . The diagnosis of sagittal venous sinus thrombosis with extension to transverse sinuses was documented in a computed tomography angiography; laboratories for systemic diseases were negative and antibodies for coronavirus were positive.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Objetivo: Determinar los factores de riesgo en adultos con COVID-19 en población rural andina durante 2020. Métodos: En este estudio de cohorte retrospectivo multicéntrico, incluimos a 184 pacientes adultos (≥18 años) con pruebas serológicas y moleculares para CO VID-19 de tres hospitales de la sierra peruana (Ancash y Apurímac) incluidos con sospecha clínica entre abril y junio. Se utilizó análisis descriptivos y regresión logística univariable para explorar los factores de riesgo asociados a los pacientes con COVID-19. Resultados: Del total de pacientes, 14 (7.6%) tuvieron SARS-CoV-2. En los pacientes infectados 12 (85.7%) fueron varones con promedio de edad de 47.3±21 años. Las comorbilidades estuvieron presentes en cerca de la tercera parte de pacientes, siendo la hipertensión y diabetes las más frecuentes (ambas 14.3%), y la sinto matología más frecuentes fueron fiebre y cefalea (57.2%). La regresión univariable mostró mayores probabilidades de infección con SARS-CoV-2 en la población rural andina asociada con la edad avanzada (OR: 1.1 IC95% 0.7-1.8; p=0,019), comorbilidades previas (OR: 1.7, IC95% 0.32-9.39; p=0,006), y sintomatología previa (OR: 49.8, IC95% 5.6-436.9; p=0,0011). Conclusiones: Los posibles factores de riesgo como la edad avanzada, las comorbilidades y sintomatología previas están relacionados con el desarrollo de CO VID-19 en población rural andina de Perú.


Abstract Objective: To determine the risk factors in adults with COVID-19 in the rural Andean population during 2020. Methods: This multicenter retrospective cohort study included 184 adult patients (≥18 years) with COVID-19's serological and molecular tests from three Hospitals in the Peruvian mountains (Ancash and Apurímac) included with clinical suspicion between April and June. Descriptive analysis and univariate logistic regression were used to explore the risk factors associated with patients with COVID-19. Results: Of total of patients, 14 (7.6%) had a SARS-CoV-2. In infected patients 12 (85.7%) were men with an average age of 47.3±21 years. Comorbidities were present in about a third of patients, with hypertension and diabetes being the most frequent (both 14.3%), and the most frequent symptoms were fever and hea dache (57.2%). Univariate regression showed higher probabilities of infection with SARS-CoV-2 in the rural Andean population associated with advanced age (OR: 1.1 95% CI 0.7 - 1.8; p = 0.019), previous comorbidities (OR: 1.7, 95%CI 0.32 - 9.39; p = 0.006), and previous symptoms (OR: 49.8, 95%CI 5.6 - 436.9; p = 0.0011). Conclusions: Possible risk factors such as advanced age, comorbidities and previous symptoms are related to the development of COVID-19 in the rural Andean population of Peru.

ABSTRACT

Se describe el caso de un paciente de 70 años que consultó por cefalea súbita, tipo trueno, sin alteración del estado de consciencia, acompañada de dolor torácico de una hora de evolución y de baja intensidad. A su ingreso fue enfocado como cefalea en trueno, que es clasificada, en cuanto a la atención, como bandera roja. La medición de troponina fue negativa y una tomografía de cráneo fue leída como normal. Desde el ingreso presentaba signos vitales normales, cuando iba a ser dado de alta se torna hipotenso (completamente asintomático) y por su síntoma cardinal (cefalea), que se asoció a dolor torácico leve y no anginoso, se solicitó angiotomografía toracoabdominal, con la que se demostró aneurisma disecante de la aorta. Con la presentación de este caso, se busca resaltar la importancia en el servicio de urgencias de la asociación de la cefalea tipo trueno, con condiciones vasculares como la disección aórtica.


We describe the case of a 70-year-old patient, who seeks medical advice due to sudden, thunder headache, without alteration of the state of consciousness, accompanied by chest pain of 1 hour of evolution and of low intensity. Upon his admission, the patient was treated as a thunderclap headache, which is considered a red flag. His troponin was negative, and his head tomography was interpreted as normal. From admission he had normal vital signs, but when he was going to be discharged, he became hypotensive (completely asymptomatic) and due to his cardinal symptom (headache) that was asso-ciated with mild non-anginal chest pain, a thoracoabdominal angioCT was requested, with which dissecting aneurysm of the aorta was evidenced. With the presentation of this case, we seek to highlight the importance of the association of thunder-type headache with possible vascular conditions such as aortic dissection in the emergency department.


Descrevemos o caso de uma paciente de 70 anos que consultou por quadro de cefaleia súbita, tipo trovão, sem alteração do estado de consciência, acompanhada de dor torácica de uma hora de evolução e de baixa intensidade. Na admissão, foi tratado como cefaleia em trovoada, que é classificada, em termos de atenção, como bandeira vermelha. A me-dição da troponina foi negativa e uma tomografia de crânio foi lida como normal. Desde a admissão apresentava sinais vitais normais, quando ia receber alta ficou hipotenso (totalmente assintomático) e devido ao seu sintoma cardinal (cefaleia), que se associou a dores torácicas ligeiras e não anginosas, foi solicitada angiografia toracoabdominal, com cujo aneurisma dissecante da aorta foi demonstrado. Com a apresentação deste caso, o objetivo é destacar a importância no pronto-socorro da associação da cefaleia do tipo trovão com afecções vasculares como a dissecção da aorta.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Tuberous sclerosis (TSC) is a rare disease with multi-systemic involvement, predominantly neurological. Little evidence exists about the anesthetic management of patients with this disorder, particularly in pregnant women. This article discusses a case of a patient with TSC admitted to our hospital for the delivery of a twin gestation. Twenty-four hours after surgery, the patient presented left-side facial-brachial hypoesthesia and headache. A brain CT revealed a right frontal cortical bleeding tumor, which was diagnosed as glioblastoma multiforme. The patient was discharged 15 days after admission and a neurosurgical approach was suggested.


Resumen La esclerosis tuberosa es una enfermedad poco frecuente asociada con compromiso multisistémico, principalmente neurológico. Es poca la evidencia sobre el manejo anestésico de los pacientes con este trastorno, en particular las mujeres embarazadas. En este artículo presentamos el caso de una paciente con esclerosis tuberosa ingresada en nuestro hospital para el parto de una gestación gemelar. Veinticuatro horas después de la cirugía, la paciente presentó hipoestesia facial y braquial izquierda y cefalea. La tomografía cerebral mostró un tumor cortical sangrante en el lóbulo frontal derecho, diagnosticado como glioblastoma multiforme. La paciente fue dada de alta 15 días después de su ingreso y, con recomendación de manejo por neurocirugía.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Post-dural puncture headache is a frequent complication in neuraxial approaches. It may result in disability, healthcare dissatisfaction and potentially serious complications. The traditional initial management includes general and analgesia measures with poor evidence. The treatment approach best supported by the literature is the epidural blood patch for which rates of up 70% improvement have been reported. Regional techniques have been recently described that may be helpful because they are less invasive than the epidural blood patch, under certain clinical circumstances. This article suggests an algorithm that uses such techniques for the management of this complication.


Resumen La cefalea pospunción dural es una complicación frecuente del abordaje del neuroeje. Puede producir incapacidad, insatisfacción con la atención en salud y complicaciones potencialmente graves. Tradicionalmente su manejo inicial incluye medidas generales y de analgesia las cuales tienen baja evidencia. La medida para su tratamiento, con mejor soporte en la literatura, es la realización de parche hemático, el cual informa tazas de mejoría hasta del 70 %. Recientemente se han descrito técnicas regionales, que pueden resultar útiles por ser menos invasivas que el parche hemático, en ciertos contextos clínicos. En este artículo se propone un algoritmo que permite incorporar dichas técnicas al manejo de esta complicación.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La cefalea posterior a la punción de la duramadre es una complicación que se describió conjuntamente con la primera anestesia neuroaxial. Es un cuadro clínico complejo, que con la terapéutica adecuada mejora rápidamente, pero en ocasiones persiste a pesar de los esfuerzos realizados por el equipo médico encargado de tratarla. Objetivo: Describir la evolución clínica de un caso cefalea pospunción dural. Discusión: Se presenta un caso que después de realizarle a una anestesia subaracnoidea para una cirugía de Hallux Varus, sufre una cefalea pospunción dural que persistió por más de 18 días, a pesar de los tratamientos impuestos, tanto conservadores (terapia farmacológica, hidratación, reposo) como intervencionista (hemoparche peridural y colchón hídrico, con dextran 40), el cuadro desapareció por si solo pasado el tiempo expuesto anteriormente. Conclusiones: Se concluye que este cuadro clínico ocasionado por la punción de la duramadre es de resolución rápida con el tratamiento adecuado, pero existen casos en los que a pesar de la terapéutica indicada puede persistir por más tiempo(AU)


Introduction: Headache after dura mater puncture is a complication described together with the first neuraxial anesthesia. A complex clinical picture improves rapidly with adequate therapy, but sometimes persists despite the efforts made by the medical team in charge of treating it. Objective: To describe the clinical evolution of case of postdural puncture headache. Discussion: A case is presented of a patient who, following subarachnoid anesthesia for hallux varus surgery, suffered postdural puncture headache that persisted for more than eighteen days, despite the treatments used, both conservative (pharmacological therapy, hydration, rest) and interventionist (peridural hemopatch and water mattress, with dextran 40). The clinical picture disappeared by itself after the time previously discussed. Conclusions: It is concluded that this clinical picture caused by the dura mater puncture is of rapid resolution if treated appropriately, but there are cases in which, despite the indicated therapy, it may persist for a longer time(AU)

ABSTRACT

Resumen Objetivo: Describir la epidemiología de la Leptospirosis en el departamento del Huila durante el período 2011 -2017. Materiales y métodos: Estudio descriptivo de corte transversal, retrospectivo. La población analizada fueron pacientes de los diferentes municipios del departamento del Huila que se reportaron como casos probables o confirmados de leptospirosis. Se estructuraron registros por cada año en bases de datos recopiladas por el área de epidemiología de la Secretaría de Salud del Huila, basadas en las fichas de notificación de vigilancia en salud pública para leptospirosis y generadas por cada Unidad Primaria Generadora de Datos (UPGD) ante la presencia del evento. Los datos fueron discriminados de acuerdo a las variables de interés para el estudio en una nueva base de datos en Excel; tabuladas con el programa estadístico R - Studio 3.3.3 y Epidat 4.2, para luego ser procesados con estadísticos descriptivos y finalmente ser expresados en porcentajes y en tasas de incidencia. Resultados: Se reportaron 268 casos, de los cuales 61 (23%) fueron confirmados por laboratorio y 207 (77%) sospechosos o probables. El 69% de los pacientes presentaron fiebre, mialgias y cefalea como síntomas representativos. El grupo etario más afectado tenía entre 27 y 59 años de edad (44%). La población se caracterizó por ser del área urbana (65%), con mayor frecuencia en hombres (72%). En relación a la ocupación laboral, se encontró mayor frecuencia en agricultores (20%) y en el personal de aseo (17%). Los factores de riesgo evidenciados fueron la presencia de animales domésticos en un 67% de los casos, así como la presencia de ratas en el hogar (51%) y el posible mal manejo del agua. Conclusiones: El incremento en el número de casos de Leptospirosis probablemente está asociado a la mala manipulación del agua y a la presencia de animales en el domicilio.


Abstract Objective: Describe the epidemiology of Leptospirosis in the department of Huila during the years 2011 to 2017. Materials and methods: This article is a descriptive, cross-sectional, retrospective study. The population analyzed were patients from the different municipalities of the department of Huila who were reported as probable or confirmed cases for leptospirosis, structuring records for each year in databases compiled by the epidemiology area of ​​the department's health secretary, based on the public health surveillance notification sheets for leptospirosis, and generated by each Primary Data Generating Unit (UPGD) in the presence of the event; The data were discriminated according to the variables of interest for the study in a new database in Excel; tabulated with the statistical program R - Studio 3.3.3 and Epidat 4.2, to later be processed with descriptive statistics and finally expressed in percentages and incidence rates. Results: 268 cases were reported, which 61 (23%) were confirmed by laboratory and 207 (77%) suspicious or probable. 69% of the patients presented fever, myalgia and headache as representative symptoms. The most affected group range in ages from 27 and 59 (44%). The population was characterized for being part of the urban area (65%), and the cases were more frequent in men (72%). Regarding to employment, it was found that farmers (20%) and the cleaning staff (17%) were the most common cases. The risk factors identified were the presence of domestic animals in 67% of the cases, as well as the presence of rats at home (51%) and the possible poor water management. Conclusions: The increase in the number of cases of Leptospirosis is probably associated with the poor water management and the presence of animals at home.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Although it is known that the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which was first seen in Wuhan, China, in December 2019 and has affected the whole world, mainly targets the respiratory tract, cases of this disease with a wide clinical spectrum are emerging as information is shared. CASE REPORT: We present the case of a pregnant woman who was diagnosed with venous sinus thrombosis after she developed headache and hemiparesis. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) positivity lasted for two weeks after COVID-19 had been diagnosed. CONCLUSIONS: In patients with suspected COVID-19, especially in the presence of causes of hypercoagu- lability and presence of atypical features, venous sinus thrombosis needs to be kept in mind in making the differential diagnosis.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT A 62-year-old woman was admitted to our clinic with the complaints of periorbital ecchymosis and subconjunctival hemorrhage that are visible, especially on the right eye. We noted that her complaints began the day after she underwent leech therapy on the glabella area for headache. On the glabella, 2 leech bites were observed close to the right side. Examination revealed ecchymosis on the bilateral eyelids and subconjunctival hemorrhage on the inferolateral and medial limbus on the right eye. No treatment was initiated, rather control measures were recommended. The follow-up after 1 month revealed that the patient's complaints had disappeared.(AU)


RESUMO Uma paciente de 62 anos procurou nosso ambulatório com queixas de equimose periorbital e hemorragia subconjuntival, visíveis principalmente no olho direito. Descobrimos que suas queixas começaram no dia seguinte a um tratamento para dor de cabeça com sanguessugas na área da glabela. Na glabela, 2 mordidas de sanguessuga foram encontradas próximas ao lado direito. Durante os exames da paciente, foram detectadas equimoses nas pálpebras bilaterais e hemorragia subconjuntival no limbo ínfero lateral e medial do olho direito. Nenhum tratamento foi iniciado, sendo recomendado apenas controle. No acompanhamento, observou-se que as queixas da paciente desapareceram em cerca de um mês.(AU)

ABSTRACT

Masculino de 71 años, hipertenso, con tabaquismo activo (IPA 51); ingresó a urgencias por disminución progresiva de la agudeza visual bilateral hasta llegar a amaurosis bilateral, no dolor ocular. Asociado a cefalea crónica frontal bilateral, pulsátil. RNM cerebral mostró engrosamiento difuso de la meninge en relación con paquimeningitis. Biopsia de meninge mostró paquimeninge. Se descartaron casusas neoplásicas, infecciosas, autoinmunes, por lo cual se consideró una paquimeningitis hipertrófica idiopática (PHI). La paquimeningitis hipertrófica es una entidad clínica rara caracterizada por engrosamiento localizado o difuso de la duramadre, con o sin una inflamación asociada, produce déficit neurológico progresivo por compresión de las estructuras adyacentes (1). El dolor de cabeza es el síntoma inicial más común, seguido de síntomas oftalmológicos, como pérdida visual y diplopía (2). Su etiología es multifactorial, en estudios de imagen se encuentra engrosamiento dural en la fosa craneal posterior (2), imitando la torre Eiffel iluminada en noche (signo de Eiffel de noche) (3).


A 71-year-old hypertensive male who was an active smoker (IPA 51) was admitted to the emergency room due to progressively decreasing bilateral eyesight to the point of bilateral amaurosis, without ocular pain. This was associated with a chronic bilateral pulsatile frontal headache. A brain NMR showed diffuse meningeal thickening related to pachymeningitis. A meningeal biopsy showed pachymeninge. Neoplastic, infectious and autoimmune causes were ruled out; therefore, it was considered to be idiopathic hypertrophic pachymeningitis (IHP). Hypertrophic pachymeningitis is a rare clinical entity characterized by localized or diffuse thickening of the dura mater, with or without associated inflammation. It causes progressive neurological deficit due to compression of the adjacent structures (1). Headache is the most common initial symptom, followed by ophthalmological symp-toms such as vision loss and diplopia (2). Its etiology is multifactorial. Dural thickening in the posterior cranial fossa, mimicking the Eiffel Tower illuminated at night (Eiffel-by-night sign), is found on imaging studies. References 1. Uchida H, Ogawa Y, Tominaga T.

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION: Primary headaches, defined as disorders in themselves caused by independent pathomechanisms and not by other disorders, are prevalent in university students and considered one important health problems in the world. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the prevalence of primary headaches and analyze associations with sociodemographic characteristics and the use of electronic devices by university students. METHODS: A cross-sectional observational study analysis was carried out with a sample of 1,143 students of both genders who responded to the questionnaire on demographic, socioeconomic aspects, use of electronic devices, and on the primary headaches. Descriptive analysis, bivariate analysis, and Poisson regression were performed. RESULTS: The overall prevalence of primary headache of 60.7%, being that, in relation to the type, 33.2% presented tension-type headache, 54.3% migraine, and 12.3% other types of headache. Regression analysis showed that female gender and income of up to two minimum wages were associated with primary headache and migraine type. The primary headache was associated with subjects of the white race; watching television and playing video games for more than 3 hours per day, for example. The sitting posture, semi-lying down, and distance from the eyes to the mobile phone and tablet longer than 20 cm were associated with primary headache and the three types of headaches. CONCLUSION: The results allow us to conclude that there is a high prevalence of primary headaches in college students and that socioeconomic factors related to the use of electronic devices are associated with the presence of primary headaches.


INTRODUÇÃO: As dores de cabeça primárias, definidas como perturbações em si mesmas, causadas por patomecanismos independentes e não por outras perturbações, são prevalentes em universitários e considerada um importante problema de saúde mundial. OBJETIVO: Investigar a prevalência de cefaleia primária e analisar associações com características sociodemográficas e uso de dispositivos eletrônicos em estudantes universitários. MÉTODOS: Foi realizado um estudo observacional transversal com uma amostra de 1143 estudantes de ambos os sexos, que responderam ao questionário sobre aspectos demográficos, socioeconômicos, uso de dispositivos eletrônicos e cefaleia primária. Foram realizadas análises descritivas, análises bivariadas e regressão de Poisson. RESULTADOS: A prevalência geral de cefaleia primária de 60,7%, sendo que, em relação ao tipo, 33,2% apresentavam cefaleia tensional, 54,3% enxaqueca e 12,3% outros tipos de cefaleia. A análise de regressão mostrou que o sexo feminino e a renda de até dois salários-mínimos estavam associados à cefaleia primária e a enxaqueca; a cefaleia primária está associada a indivíduos da raça branca; assistir televisão e jogar videogame por mais de 3 horas por dia foi associado ao tipo tensional, a enxaqueca e cefaleia primária; a postura sentada, semideitada e distância dos olhos ao telefone celular e tablet com mais de 20 cm com a cefaleia primária e aos três tipos específicos. CONCLUSÃO: Os resultados permitem concluir que existe alta prevalência de cefaleia primária em estudantes universitários e que fatores socioeconômicos e relacionados ao uso de dispositivos eletrônicos estão associados à presença de cefaleia primária.

ABSTRACT

El Hospital Nacional Dr. Mario Catarino Rivas (hospital de segundo nivel de atención), sirve como centro de atención para embarazos de alto riesgo de la zona noroccidental de Honduras; reportó 1,702 casos de trastor-nos hipertensivos del embarazo en 2017 y 2,070 casos en 2018. Se caracterizó pacientes con signos y síntomas de trastornos hipertensivos del embarazo agrupadas desde un punto de vista obstétrico, epidemiológico y clínico. Se realizó un estudio, descriptivo de corte transversal en gestantes que presentaron cefalea, cifras tensionales elevadas (≥ 140/90mmHg); registrando ausencia o presencia de proteinuria, atendidas en la emergencia de labor y parto de un hospital nacional de segundo nivel de atención en San Pedro Sula, Honduras, desde junio hasta octubre del 2019. Se incluyeron 110 pacientes de entre 18-43 años, mestizas y amas de casa, la edad gestacional promedio por fecha de ultima menstruación de 37.7 semanas; el 28.2% presentó preeclampsia severa. Las manifestaciones clínicas frecuentes fueron edema de miembros inferiores y cefalea. El 57.3% desarrolló trabajo de parto espontá-neo, la resolución del embarazo fue cesárea en el 57.3% de las gestantes. Respecto al producto de la concepción, 66.4% tenían peso normal y talla apropiada para la edad gestacional, un APGAR de 8 al primer minuto y de 9 a los 5 minutos. En este estudio, se reporta una prevalencia del 13.72% con respecto a los trastornos hipertensivos del embarazo.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective To assess the effects of three 8-week exercise programs on the frequency, intensity, and impact of headaches in patients with headache attributed to temporomandibular disorder (TMD). Methodology Thirty-six patients diagnosed with headache attributed to TMD participated in the study and were divided into three groups of 12 patients: a therapeutic exercise program (G1, mean age: 26.3±5.6 years), a therapeutic and aerobic exercise program (G2, mean age: 26.0±4.6 years), and an aerobic exercise program (G3, 25.8±2.94 years). Headache frequency and intensity were evaluated using a headache diary, and the adverse headache impact was evaluated using the Headache Impact Test (HIT-6). The intensity was reported using the numerical pain rating scale. These parameters were evaluated twice at baseline (A01/A02), at the end of the 8-week intervention period (A1), and 8-12 weeks after the end of the intervention (A2). Results At A1, none of the G2 patients reported having headaches, in G1, only two patients reported headaches, and in G3, ten patients reported headache. The headache intensity scores (0.3 [95% CI: -0.401, 1.068]), (0.0 [95% CI: -0.734, 0.734]) and HIT-6 (50.7 [95% CI: 38.008, 63.459]), (49.5 [95% CI: 36.808, 62.259]), significantly decreased in G1 and G2 at A1. At A2 headache intensity scores (0.5 [95% CI: -0.256, 1.256]), (0.0 [95% CI: -0.756, 0.756]) and HIT-6 (55.1 [95% CI: 42.998, 67.268]), (51.7 [95% CI: 39.532, 63.802]) in G1 and G2 haven't change significantly. The effects obtained immediately after the completion of the intervention programs were maintained until the final follow-up in all groups. Conclusion The programs conducted by G1 (therapeutic exercises) and G2 (therapeutic and aerobic exercise) had significant results at A1 and A2.

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: Determinar a prevalência da automedicação em estudantes de Odontologia e Enfermagem da Universidade Estadual do Piauí no município de Parnaíba e avaliar se existe associação dessa tal prática com o nível socioeconômico, o sexo dos acadêmicos, bem como com o nível de conhecimento teórico-prático. Métodos: Consiste em uma metodologia quantitativa de natureza aplicada e de corte transversal. O levantamento contou com a participação de maiores de 18 anos de idade e fez o uso de um questionário autoaplicável com questões a respeito da automedicação e demais variáveis independentes. Os resultados obtidos foram tabulados e submetidos a testes estatísticos por meio de análise descritiva e bivariada. Foram utilizados os testes de Mann-Whitney, ANOVA Kruskal-Wallis, com o software Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) versão 21,0. Resultados: A amostra contou com a participação de 70 acadêmicos, dos quais 41 (58,6%) são do curso de Odontologia e 29 (41,4%) do curso de Enfermagem, e a automedicação era praticada por 97,1% dos acadêmicos, predominantemente entre aqueles que estavam no início do curso (92,3%) (p < 0,05) e eram do sexo feminino (98,1%) (p < 0,05), não havendo variação estatisticamente significativa quanto a renda familiar ou curso em que estavam matriculados (p > 0,05). Além disso, a principal classe farmacológica utilizada foi a de analgésicos. Conclusão: A prevalência de automedicação foi alta e frequentemente relatada para o combate da cefaleia, os acadêmicos relataram que conhecimentos e experiências prévias os auxiliaram na escolha dos fármacos autoadministrados, não havendo associação dessa pratica de automedicação com o curso e a renda mensal. Além disso, essa prática foi estatisticamente mais prevalente no sexo feminino e dentre aqueles estudantes que estavam no início do curso da graduação.


Aim: To determine the prevalence of self-medication in Dentistry and Nursing students at the State University of Piauí in the city of Parnaíba and to evaluate whether there is an association between this practice and the socioeconomic level and the sex of the students, as well as the level of theoretical and practical knowledge. Methods: This study consists of a quantitative methodology of an applied and cross-sectional nature. The survey counted on the participation of individuals over 18 years of age and used a self-administered questionnaire with questions regarding self-medication and other independent variables. The obtained results were tabulated and subjected to statistical tests through descriptive and bivariate analysis. Mann-Whitney and ANOVA Kruskal-Wallis tests were used, together with the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS), version 21.0. Results: This study's sample counted on the participation of 70 students, 41 (58.6%) were from the Dental School and 29 (41.4%) of the Nursing Course, and self-medication was practiced by 97.1% of the students, predominantly among those who were at the beginning of the course (92.3%) (p < 0.05) and were female (98.1%) (p < 0.05), with no statistically significant variation as to family income or course in which the students are engaged (p > 0.05). In addition, the main pharmacological class used was analgesics. Conclusion: The prevalence of self-medication was high and frequently reported to combat headaches. Academics reported that previous knowledge and experience helped them to choose self-administered drugs, with no association between this self-medication practice and the course of study and monthly income. In addition, this practice was statistically more prevalent in females among those students who were in the beginning of the undergraduate course.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) is a vasculitic disease with an infrequent involvement of the central nervous system. This can lead, in rare cases, to hypertrophic pachymeningitis (HP), which is characterized by inflammation and fibrosis that cause a thickening of dura mater. At present, it is crucial to consider GPA in the differential diagnosis of elderly patients with intracranial hypertension. The case is presented of a 60-year-old male with progressive severe headache, vomiting, and wasting syndrome. Physical examination showed pallor, weight loss, and unilateral papilloedema. A gadolinium-enhanced brain MRI scan showed sinusitis, chronic otomastoiditis, and hypertrophic pachymeningitis. Finally, a meningeal biopsy concluded a necrotising granulomatous vasculitis compatible with GPA. However, PR3- and MPO-ANCA were negative. After corticosteroid therapy was initiated, the patient had a favorable outcome during his hospital stay.


RESUMEN La granulomatosis con poliangeítis (GPA) compromete excepcionalmente el sistema nervioso central, conllevando en raras ocasiones a una paquimeningitis hipertrófica (PH), caracterizada por inflamación y fibrosis, que originan un engrosamiento de la duramadre. Actualmente, su consideración es crucial en el diagnóstico diferencial de pacientes ancianos con hipertensión endocraneana. Presentamos el caso de un adulto de 60 anos con cefalea severa progresiva, vómitos, papiledema unilateral y síndrome consuntivo en donde la resonancia magnética cerebral contrastada con gadolinio muestra sinusitis, otomastoiditis y PH. Finalmente, la biopsia de meninges reveló vasculitis granulomatosa necrosante de pequenos y medianos vasos compatible con GPA. Empero, PR3- y MPO-ANCA resultaron negativos. Se inició terapia con corticoides, presentando una evolución clínica favorable durante su hospitalización.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: Los Quistes Aracnoideos son colecciones benignas de líquido cefalorraquídeo que representan el 1% de lesiones ocupantes de espacios intracraneales. Se detecta frecuentemente antes de los 20 años, entre 60 a 90% de los casos. La prevalencia estimada es de 1,4% en adultos, siendo la menos frecuente la ubicación intraventricular. Caso Clínico: Mujer de 60 años de edad, consultó por cefalea holocraneana de larga data y ocasionales mareos. Sin alteraciones al examen físico neurológico. Se le realizó tomografía axial computarizada donde llamó la atención una leve alteración de la densidad intraventricular por lo que se procedió a realizar resonancia magnética nuclear que demostró imágenes quísticas en atrio de ventrículos laterales, bilateral. No se requirió de una intervención quirúrgica debido a que la paciente no presentaba sintomatología significativa. Discusión: El tratamiento quirúrgico es recomendado en pacientes sintomáticos, en quistes de gran extensión y en los que cursan con complicaciones. Para los pacientes que cursen sólo con dolor de cabeza, sin hidrocefalia secundaria o un aumento evidente de la presión intracraneal se recomienda la observación con o sin repetición de las imágenes.


Introduction: Arachnoid cysts are benign collections of cerebrospinal fluid that represents 1% of lesions occupying intracranial spaces. It is frequently detected before the age of 20, between 60 to 90% of cases. The estimated prevalence is 1.4% in adults, the least frequent being intraventricular location. Clinical Case: A 60-year-old woman attended for a long-standing holocranial headache and occasional dizziness. No alteration in the neurological physical examination. A computerized axial tomography was performed, where a slight alteration in the intraventricular density drew attention, for which a nuclear magnetic resonance was carried out, which showed cystic images in the atrium of bilateral lateral ventricles. No surgical intervention was required because the patient did not present a significant symptomatology. Discussion: Surgical treatment is recommended in symptomatic patients, in cysts of great extension and in those with complications. For patients with only headache, without secondary hydrocephalus or an obvious increase in intracranial pressure, observation with or without repetition of the images is recommended.

OBJETIVO: proponer una clasificación preoperatoria a los pacientes con tumor de cuerpo Carotídeo y relacionarlos con complicaciones postoperatorias. MATERIAL Y MÉTODOS: todos los pacientes operados con diagnóstico de tumor del cuerpo Carotídeo entre el 2005 al 2014 en el Hospital Obrero N° 1 de la Caja Nacional de Salud en La Paz - Bolivia RESULTADOS: se analizaron y operaron 115 pacientes con un promedio de edad de 52 años (DE±11,725 y una moda de 57 años) de los cuales el 109 (94,80%) correspondieron al género femenino con una razón de 18:1. Todos los pacientes eran originarios y residentes de ciudades ubicadas a más de 2500 m.s.n.m. El promedio de evolución fue de 3 años (DE±2,189), y solo 7 pacientes (6,1%) presentan hábito tabáquico. 83 pacientes (72,2%) de los TCC se localizan en el lado izquierdo En las manifestaciones clínicas, todos los pacientes presentan el tumor localizado en el ángulo mandibular, por delante del musculo esternocleidomastoideo, describiéndose un crecimiento paulatino y permanente en 72 sujetos (62,6%), cefalea en 45 (39,1%), presencia de latido en 30 sujetos (26,1%), disfagia en 9 (7,9%), mareos en 16 (13,9%) y disfonía en 6 (5,2%). Entre los signos más evidentes de TCC, se describe el signo de Fontaine en 114 sujetos (99,2%), adenomegalia en 20 (17,4%) y otros menos frecuentes como soplo, abombamiento parafaringeo y compromiso de pares craneales. Todos los pacientes fueron clasificados en ambos sistemas (Shamblin y la nuestra llamada de los Andes). Se describen 39 pacientes (33,2%) con complicaciones postoperatorias, Grado I: 1 paciente sin complicaciones; Grado II: de 58 sujetos, 4 (3,5%) presentaban parálisis temporal del Hipogloso; en el Grado III: de los 41 sujetos, 24 (20,8%) presentaron ligadura de la arteria carótida externa, parálisis del hipogloso y glosofaringeo, lesión de recurrente y del laríngeo superior. En el grupo IV, de los 15 sujetos operados, 11 presentaron complicaciones (9,6% del total y 73% del grupo) entre las cuales están ligadura de la arteria carótida externa, lesión del hipogloso y un paciente con AVC y hemiparesia. Se describe una reoperación (0,86%) y ninguna mortalidad. CONCLUSIÓN: proponer una clasificación preoperatoria que tenga la posibilidad de asociarse a complicaciones y pronóstico.


OBJECTIVE: to propose a preoperative classification of patients with Carotid Body Tumor and relate them to postoperative complications. MATERIAL AND METHODS: all patients operated with a diagnosis of Carotid Body Tumor between 2005 and 2014 at the Obrero Hospital No. 1 of the National Health Fund in La Paz - Bolivia RESULTS: 115 patients with an average age of 52 years (SD±11.725 and a mode of 57 years) were analyzed and operated on, of which 109 (94.80%) corresponded to the female gender with a ratio of 18: 1. All the patients were from and residents of cities located more than 2,500 meters above sea level. The mean evolution was 3 years (SD±2.189), and only 7 patients (6.1%) had a smoking habit. 83 patients (72.2%) of CBTs are located on the left side In the clinical manifestations, all patients present the tumor located in the mandibular angle, in front of the sternocleidomastoid muscle, describing a gradual and permanent growth in 72 subjects (62.6%), headache in 45 (39.1%), presence of heartbeat in 30 subjects (26.1%), dysphagia in 9 (7.9%), dizziness in 16 (13.9%) and dysphonia in 6 (5.2%). Among the most obvious signs of CBT, the Fontaine sign is described in 114 subjects (99.2%), adenomegaly in 20 (17.4%) and other less frequent signs such as murmur, parapharyngeal bulging and cranial nerve involvement. All patients were classified in both systems (Shamblin and ours called from the Andes). 39 patients (33.2%) with postoperative complications were described, grade I: 1 patient without complications; Grade II: of 58 subjects, 4 (3.5%) had temporary hypoglossal paralysis; in Grade III: of the 41 subjects, 24 (20.8%) presented external carotid artery ligation, hypoglossal and glossopharyngeal paralysis, recurrent lesion and superior larynx. In group IV, of the 15 operated subjects, 11 presented complications (9.6% of the total and 73% of the group), among which are external carotid artery ligation, hypoglossal injury and one patient with stroke and hemiparesis. A reoperation (0.86%) and no mortality are described. CONCLUSION: propose a preoperative classification that has the possibility of being associated with complications and prognosis.

ABSTRACT

La Enfermedad por Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) supone un reto sin precedentes para la salud pública. Los médicos deben fortalecer sus habilidades clínicas para combatir esta nueva enfermedad. El objetivo de esta revisión fue describir los signos, síntomas y complicaciones de pacientes con COVID-19. Se realizó una búsqueda en la literatura en la base de datos PubMed incluyendo publicaciones entre 1 de diciembre 2019 y 15 de agosto 2020, sin restricciones de lenguaje, utilizando las palabras clave 'COVID-19' cruzada con 'manifestaciones clínicas', 'signos y síntomas' y 'complicaciones'. Se incluyeron revisiones sistemáticas y meta-análisis, estudios epidemiológicos y series de casos. Se identificaron 1,066 artículos, de los cuales se seleccionaron 71 de acuerdo a los contenidos previamente definidos por los autores. La COVID-19 presenta un curso de leve a moderado y severo-crítico, específicamente en mayores de 65 años con o sin comorbilidades. Los signos y síntomas no son específicos y usualmente se superponen de acuerdo a la edad y a la fase de la enfermedad. Los síntomas más comunes son fiebre, tos y fatiga. Síntomas menos comunes incluyen escalofríos, dolor de garganta, cefalea, mialgias/artralgias, pérdida del gusto y del olfato, diarrea, nausea, vómitos, congestión nasal, palpitaciones, opresión precordial y dolor pleurítico. La sintomatología en niños difiere de la de los adultos y el curso es usualmente benigno y de baja mortalidad. La evaluación clínica de COVID-19 supone un reto hoy en día. Sin embargo, el conocimiento de la historia natural de la enfermedad permite situar los síntomas comunes e inespecíficos en el contexto clínico correcto.


Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) presents an unprecedented challenge to public health. Physicians must strengthen clinical skills for this new disease. This review aimed to describe the signs, symptoms and complications of patients with COVID-19. A literature search was conducted in the PubMed database, including publications between December 1, 2019, to August 15, 2020, without language restrictions, using the keywords 'COVID-19' crossed with 'clinical manifestations', 'signs and symptoms', and 'complications'. Systematic reviews, meta-analysis, epidemiological studies, and case report series were included. A total of 1,066 articles were identi¬fied, among 71 were selected according to the contents previously defined by the authors. COVID-19 has a mild to moderate or severe-critical course, specifically in over 65 years of age, with or without comorbidities. Signs and symptoms are not specific and usually overlap according to the age and stage of the disease. The most common symptoms are fever, cough, and fatigue. Less common symptoms include chills, sore throat, headache, myalgia/ arthralgia, loss of taste and smell, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, nasal congestion, palpitations, chest tightness, and pleuritic pain. The symptomatology in children differs from that of adults, and the course is usually benign and low mortality. Clinical evaluation of COVID-19 is challenging today. However, knowledge of the disease's natural history allows placing common and nonspecific symptoms in the correct clinical context.
