Two groups of 585 members each one were conformed for that purpose, that is to say a control for each case. After having processed the information, there was a prevalence of the male sex, while, the common cold was the infection that affected with higher frequency fundamentally those patients aged 5-9. Also, it was emphasized an increment of the risk from suffering -- in order of frequency -- disorders, such as common cold, acute tonsillitis and pneumonia, bronchopneumonia, as well as interstitial pneumonia
