Resumen

MIRANDA DIAZ, Belkis Tamara. Chemopuncture, new strategy to treat patients with recidivant acuminated condyloma. Rev. Med. Electrón. [online]. 2009, vol.31, n.4. ISSN 1684-1824.

The treatment of medical affections based on the injections in certain acupunctural points with chemical products, through which the absorption of the products is higher, is known by the name of chemopuncture or pharmacopuncture. Taking into account the high incidence of patients with recidivant acuminated condylomas in our consultation and the lack of treatments controlling the recidivant rate, we decided to evaluate the efficacy of chemopuncture using subcutaneous B 12 vitamin in immunostimulant points at the provincial INTMIN clinic, because it is known the relationship of this affection recidivants with the immune status of the affected patients. Using the simple randomized method without replacement, we divided our patients with a clinic diagnosis of recidivant acuminated condylomas in two groups (n= 30 for each group). The Group A (control) patients were treated with cryotherapy (topic immunomodulator) and the Group B (experimental) patients with chemopuncture. Patients were evaluated fortnightly during the treatment and monthly during six months after the treatment. This investigation showed that chemopuncture with B 12 vitamin is efficacious in controlling the recidivism of the acuminated condylomas.
