Resumen

PEREZ REYES, Rogelio  y  OTERO CEBALLOS, Marta. Experiencia de trabajo en la Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos ante las manifestaciones psiquiátricas de la malaria. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2002, vol.31, n.2, pp.100-103. ISSN 0138-6557.

A research work was carried out on malaria cerebral affecting internationalist soldiers who were admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of Luanda´s General Hospital. This work was made in coordination with the psychiatric ward of convalescents of "Dr Luis Galván Soca" Military Hospital. In the sample of 18 cases that had associated psychiatric manifestations, the analyzed variables were: age, length of stay in the People´s Republic of Angola, personal and familiar pathological history, most frequent symptoms and progression. It was concluded that if there are acute cerebral alterations (blackouts, disorientation, hallucinations, psychomotor agitation, delirious and negative ideas, and neurotic symptoms) in patients with acute malarial episodes, then malaria with psychiatric alterations is present. On this occasion, recovery was favorable without any sequelae. There was good response to combined therapy of antimalarials and psychotropic drugs.
