Congenital hyperinsulinism: characterization of patients treated in a pediatric university hospital in Colombia.

Bol Med Hosp Infant Mex 2020 ;77(2):94-99

Instituto Roosevelt, Bogotá, Colombia.

Background: Congenital hyperinsulinism is a disease of the glucose metabolism, relevant in pediatric endocrinology because of the elevated production of insulin according to blood glucose level, which leads to persistent severe hypoglycemia. This condition can produce important neurological sequelae in the patient due to the irreversible damage that occurs in the neuron caused by the exposure to hypoglycemia for short periods of time. Congenital hyperinsulinism diagnosis is not simple and it requires a high index of suspicion. Read More

General anesthesia in infants: neurobiological and neuropsychological concerns.

Bol Med Hosp Infant Mex 2020 ;77(2):54-67

Departamento de Neurociencias, Centro Universitario de Ciencias de la Salud, Universidad de Guadalajara, Guadalajara, Jalisco, México.

General anesthetics are crucial drugs for surgical interventions, which are indicated to induce analgesia, diminish pain, and reduce anxiety in order to facilitate invasive procedures. In pediatric patients, benefits of general anesthetics also include abolishment of motility. Besides their probed benefits on surgery, the recent warning of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the use of general anesthetics in children yielded a controversy on their potential neurotoxic effects.

Bol Med Hosp Infant Mex 2019 ;76(6):265-272

Hospital Español. Ciudad de México, México.

Background: The foundations for the growth and optimal development of every human being are laid in the first 2 years of life.

Giant congenital melanocytic nevi.

Bol Med Hosp Infant Mex 2019 ;76(6):251-258

Departamento de Micología, Hospital General Dr. Manuel Gea González, Ciudad de México. México.

Giant congenital melanocytic nevi (GCMN) are melanocytic lesions secondary to the abnormal migration of melanoblasts during the embryogenesis, affecting approximately one in 20,000 live births. They are usually present since birth and are distinguished by changing their morphological characteristics within time, and increasing their size parallel to the growth of the child, reaching a diameter ≥ 20 cm in adulthood. The importance of the GCMN lies in the complications associated to them; mainly the development of melanoma or neurocutaneous melanosis, in addition to the psychological or social impact that generates in most of the cases.

Trisomy 13 mosaicism.

Bol Med Hosp Infant Mex 2019 ;76(5):246-250

Unidad de Genética Médica, Departamento de Puericultura y Pediatría, Universidad de Los Andes, Mérida.

Background: Trisomy 13 is a chromosomal alteration with an incidence of 1 in 10,000 to 20,000 births. It can occur completely, partially or in mosaicism; the latter occurs when a percentage of cells are trisomic for chromosome 13, while the rest are euploid in an individual and corresponds to only 5% of all cases. Patients with trisomy 13 present a wide variable expressivity, ranging from severe malformations with early death (phenotype similar to the complete form and more frequent), to normal development and few dysmorphic findings.

Criticism of mechanistic causality in life sciences.

Bol Med Hosp Infant Mex 2019 ;76(4):155-166

Unidad de Investigación en Medicina Basada en Evidencias, Edificio de Hemato-Oncología e Investigación, Hospital Infantil de México Federico Gómez, Ciudad de México, México.

The reductionist empiricism (RE) underlying the current scientific habitus by imposing mechanistic causality (MC) as an explanatory principle of life sciences has obscured the understanding of the life process by equating it with that of a machine. The shapes ideas can take within knowledge are analyzed: as paradigms (anthropocentric and of disjunction, reduction and simplification), implicit logics of human ways of thinking and acting, and as comprehensive-explanatory theories. It is proposed that, by dismissing the ideas, the RE supplants the biological significance of what is observed by the statistical significance of the MC and the linear and probabilistic mathematics.

La crítica y la educación médica: hacia un conocimiento liberador. Parte II.

Bol Med Hosp Infant Mex 2019 ;76(2):55-65

Unidad de Investigación en Medicina Basada en Evidencias, Hospital Infantil de México Federico Gómez, Ciudad de México, México.

The critique of medicine begins at unveiling and specifying its network of predominant logics, ideas and practices: logics of disjunction and reductionism; the health-disease binomial; the natural history of the disease; the medicalization of social life; the dehumanizing technologization of medical practice and reductionist suppressive medicine. It goes on to argue about its role as agents of domination of limitless profit interests and as an expression of the power of the health industry, justifying itself with the proposal of alternatives tending to overcome that network: transdisciplinarity and the concept of organism as hierarchical totality and interacting with its environment, with respect to disjunction and reductionism; the cultural history of the disease in relation to the health-disease binomial and the dehumanizing technologization; good living, the search for spiritual, intellectual, moral and coexistence growth as meaning of human life, as an alternative to the medicalization and antidote of degrading traits and stimulating medicine of the endogenous healing forces of the organism whose foundation of possibility and credibility is the placebo effect as an alternative to suppressive therapy for non-communicable chronic conditions, based on the pharmacological effect with unfailing side effects. It concludes that without an education based on critique, liberating knowledge would hardly accompany and guide the various social groups in the search for an inclusive, pluralistic, egalitarian, fair, solidary and caring of the planetary ecosystem world.

Determinación y cuantificación de subpoblaciones de linfocitos T y células natural killer en sangre periférica de individuos sanos por citometría de flujo.

Bol Med Hosp Infant Mex 2019 ;76(2):66-78

Universidad Anáhuac México Norte.

Background: The knowledge of the participation of different subpopulations of T lymphocytes in various pathologies helps to make therapeutic decisions, having as reference the presence of the different subpopulations of the T lymphocytes associated with the disease.

Methods: A profile standardization of surface molecules for the characterization of subpopulations of T cells was conducted: naïve, activated and memory, as well as natural killer (CD3- CD56+) cells in peripheral blood of clinically healthy individuals.

Results: Naïve (CD3+, CD4+ or CD8+, CD45RA+, CD62L+, CCR7+), activated (CD3+, CD4+ or CD8+, CD45RA+ or CD45RO+, CD69+ and/or CRTAM+), effectors (CD3+, CD4+ o CD8+, CD45RA+, CD62L-, CCR7-), central memory (CD3+, CD4+ o CD8+, CD45RO+, CD62L+, CCR7+), memory effectors (CD3+, CD4+ or CD8+, CD62RO+, CD62L-, CCR7-) subpopulations were analyzed by flow cytometry.
