Resumen

PEREZ BORREGO, Amparo; GUNTINAS ZAMORA, María Victoria  y  GONZALEZ LABRADA, Carelia. Valoración del estado inmunológico en niños con gingivoestomatitis herpética aguda. Rev Cubana Estomatol [online]. 2002, vol.39, n.1, pp.24-27. ISSN 0034-7507.

30 children who received medical attention at the Maxillofacial Surgery Service of William Soler Pediatric Hospital with the diagnosis of acute herpetic gingivostomatitis (AHGS) were studied in order to know their cellular immunocompetence state. Average age was 3.7 years old. Both sexes were affected. A prevalence of white patients was observed. 83 % of the patients had some degree of defect in the studied immunity markers (active and spontaneous rosettes). 22 of them showed abnormally low figures in the 2 markers, and 3 in only one. 5 of the 9 patients with debut disease had values within the normal limits, whereas the rest had both markers affected. Among the patients with relapse that were 21, 100 %, presented at least one affected marker. herefore, the cellular immunological deficit may be considered as a predisposing or secondary factor to the infection caused by herpex simplex type 1.
