Case Study
Se relata la experiencia en tres niños lactantes con infección de las vías respiratorias superiores que recibieron tratamiento con múltiples antimicrobianos, sin mejoría; en uno de ellos después se llega al diagnóstico clínico y radiológico de enfermedad cavitaria con absceso pulmonar, por lo que se maneja con un esquema médicoquirúrgico. El caso 1 evoluciona al tratamiento con buena respuesta al manejo médico pero el caso 2 (con diagnóstico de tuberculosis) fallece antes de los 6 meses de edad. Con base en la experiencia de los casos que se describen es importante resaltar que el médico planee el abordaje diagnóstico y terapéutico de estos casos para conocer el diagnóstico etiológico, y definir las medidas terapéuticas para el manejo integral y multidisciplinario de estos casos.
