Resumen

Presentamos un caso de neumonía varicelosa cuyas manifestaciones clínico-radiológicas fueron típicas. El diagnóstico fue confirmado por la citología de esputos. Se efectuó un tratamiento con oxígeno y medidas sintomáticas, evolucionando de forma favorable. Revisado a los seis meses sólo queda como residuo de la enfermedad un shunt patológico.

Se incluye una breve revisión de la literatura al respecto, discutiéndose las posibilidades del diagnóstico, pronóstico y tratamiento.

Summary

The authors present a case of varicella pneumonia with typical clinical-radiological manifestations. The diagnosis was confirmed by cytology of the sputum. Treatment was with oxygen and symptomatic measures, and evolved favorably. After six months, the only residuum of the disease was a pathological shunt.

The authors inelude a brief review of medical bibliography on this topic, and discuss the possibuities of diagnosis, prognosis and treatment.
