Resumen

FERNANDEZ LORA, Lilian  y  FERNANDEZ LORA, Fausto. Infection due to induced abortion at San Marcos National Hospital (Guatemala). MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.3, pp.350-355. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive and cross-sectional study of 40 patients with infection due to induced abortion, hospitalized at the Gynecology-Obstetrics Ward from San Marcos National Hospital (Guatemala), was carried out from April, 2006 to September, 2006, in order to determine the clinical manifestation of this septic condition. Women having multiple pregnancies, housewives, as well as illiterate women or with low educational status were predominant in the series. The most important medical complications, such as severe salpingitis, showed up mainly in adolescent and unemployed females when the service provider was not qualified to offer the adequate delivery care (for example, midwives).

Palabras clave : women; induced abortion; infection; severe salpingitis; secondary health care; Guatemala.
