The spleen has important functions, within which there is the immune. Their withdrawal can result in the absence of these functions and hence infections occur, especially in children that can lead to death. Hence the importance of preserving the spleen or part of it. Of the conservative surgeries of the spleen (splenorraphy, segmental resections partial, autogenous splenic implant, subtotal splenectomy with preservation of the upper pole), the more recently described was subtotal splenectomy preserving the inferior pole (ESTPI). This operation, that constitutes in line of research of the first author, it aims to ensure the spleen functions.

Objective: Scoliosis is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine that leads to more than 10º in the frontal plane. In adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) does not know the cause of the condition, and the search of the pathology source settings may involve the analysis of the nutritional status of patients. This study aims to investigate the nutritional status of patients (AIS) compared to asymptomatic population in the same age group. Methods: A prospective, descriptive and comparative study with a sample of 60 subjects divided equally into two groups. The AIS group (n = 30) represented by holders of AIS and control group (n = 30) comprised healthy subjects both sexes and groups with equivalent age. We analyzed age, gender, menarche, weight, height and BMI. Results: In terms of age: AIS Group: 14.3 ± 1.97 years; Control group: 14.23 ± 1.79 years. Regarding weight: Group AIS: 47.4 ± 13.8 kg; Control group: 55.6 ± 11.63 kg As for height: AIS Group:. 1.6 ± 0.1 m; Control group: 1.64 ± 0.08 m. As for BMI: AIS Group: 18.5 ± 3.7 kg / m2; Control group: 20.79 ± 2.92 kg / m2. Age and height did not achieve statistical difference when compared to the different AIS and control groups (p> 0.05). While statistically significant difference of body weight (p = 0.01) and BMI (p = 0.01) when comparing the AIS and control groups. Conclusion: Patients with AIS have a low body weight.
Objective: To check the state of art in the steps taken in pediatric practice in cow ‘s milk allergy . Method: review in the Pubmed database 2005 to 2015. Cow ‘s milk allergy is the main food allergy in childhood. The diagnosis is still difficult to achieve in clinical prac-tice and the lack of standardization of laboratory research a challenge. The importance of correct driving in suspected or confirmed diagnosis is seen in the large potential impact on growth and development of children subjected to food restriction .

Objective: Developing and validating a questionnaire on health knowledge. Method: Descriptive, cross-sectional, quantitative design with closed questions about health education divided into five dimensions with ten indicators, thus making 50 items in Likert scale from 5.0 to 1.0. Alpha Cronbach coefficient, Pearson correlation coefficient and the statistical software SPSS 17.0 PASW Statistics version 20.0 IBM 1989, 2011were used for calculating the reliability and the internal consistency of the constructs. Result: There was statistically significant correlation (p <0.05) in the one hundred applied questionnaires. There was emphasis on the indicators of skills and general skills required for graduates’ profile: in Pharmacy, 47% of the students do not meet the profile; in Medical school, 52% did not meet the. There is 50% mismatching with articulated knowledge in the Pharmacy course and it was of 34% in the Medical School. Of the total of Pharmacy students, 82% did not meet hospital learning knowledge; among medical students, 63% fulfilled this requirement. Conclusion: The questionnaire allows viewing the teaching-learning process according to the real world and it offers reliability and reproducibility with internal consistency.
Good Syndrome is the association between thymoma and immunodeficiency presented through recurrent infections and immunologicalevaluation as well as through the reduction or absence of B lymphocytes, hypogammaglobulinemia and defects in cellular immunity. We herein study the case of a 58-year-old woman who presented recurrent sinusitis, pneumonia and previous disseminated strongyloidiasis. Chest tomography showed a mediastinal mass occupying the thymic space and, subsequently, bronchiectasis in the upper lobes. Excision of the lesion and histopathologic examination confirmed thymoma. Hypogammaglobulinemia and B lymphocyte reduction was observed at immunological investigation. Evaluate T and B lymphocytes and immunoglobulins measurement should be considered part of routine evaluation in thymona patients because it allows the early identification of the syndrome.
