In order to provide an  updated material, it was made a bibliographic review that goes deep into the ethiology, pathogeny and currrent recommendations of the treatment of this disease. It was concluded that the positive changes in the lifestyle  and the psychoemotional support are very important elements to be taken into account in its follow-up. The primary health care professional is an indispensable milestone in the adequate treatment of this type of patient.
