Results: at discharge, 17 patients (44.7%) presented malnutrition and a year before seven patients (18.5%) still presented malnutrition. The radiological discharge was possible after 39 days in 27 children and after 50 days in six children. Hemoglobin results were not adequate at the moment of discharge in 73.7% and it persisted during six months in 14 children (36.9%). Seven patients presented allergic respiratory disease; three respiratory intense infections had equal children's number over. Respiratory functional tests were normal. Conclusions: malnutrition and amounts of non-adequate hemoglobins are the complications of highest incidence in the later evolution it could be obtained to the certificate of discharge, the radiological certificate of discharge in most of the patients before the two months; the presence of allergic respiratory disease is an affection that is frequently present in  these patients.
