The possibilities to suffer from the postcovid-19 syndrome grow as the pandemic expands.


To identify the risk factors related to the postcovid-19 syndrome in residents from Pinar del Río.


A cases and controls study that included covid-19 convalescents was carried out. They were assisted in the multidisciplinary service of Luis Augusto Turcios Lima Polyclinic of Pinar del Rio province during 2022 that were included in 2 groups at random, at a ratio of 1:2 (100 cases and 200 controls). The statistical analysis was based on an univaried strategy, for which the odds ratio was determined for each risk factor and the confidence intervals were considered at 95 %, as well as the chi-square test, with a significance level of p<0,05.


In the study there was a prevalence of the female sex, diabetes mellitus, pharmacological treatment, ventilation support, the presence of established sequels and complications.


In spite of identifying the most frequent risk factors related to the postcovid-19 syndrome, it is still a challenge for health professionals.
