Resumen

TORRES MOLINA, Alexander  y  URRUTIA MORA, Osvaldo. Reiter’s Syndrome in Childhood. A Case Report. Medisur [online]. 2011, vol.9, n.4, pp.374-377. ISSN 1727-897X.

Reiter’s Syndrome is a condition typical of genetically predisposed individuals. They tend to develop this syndrome after a urogenital or gastrointestinal infection. These infections are the triggering factor of complex immunological reactions responsible for the cutaneous, mucous, ocular and articular sintomatology. The most common clinical presentation is not frequent in children, but in men between 20 and 40 years old. The case of an eight years old, male patient, with clinical manifestations compatible with Reiter’s Syndrome is presented. The study and clinical description of the patient were performed. Seronegative oligoartcular arthritis of the right ankle, heel pain and anthesitis of Achilles tendon, keratoconjunctivitis and aseptic urethritis with circinate balanitis were detected. Antiflamatory treatment was initiated with favorable evolution.

Palabras clave : child; therapeutics; arthritis reactive.
