This was confirmed by the provincial Ministry of Health. What is it and how it prevents this disease.
The Ministry of Health Misiones confirmed this week that during the year 2018 there were 36 cases in the province, which is the expected figure for the endemic region. It is known that this chronic contagious disease affects every 10,000 inhabitants two decades ago, and is known for its consequences but currently has a much smaller number and can be successfully treated.
"Guba is a contagious disease caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium Leprae or Hansen bacillus, which uncovered a bacilli in the 19th century, and has been treated with antibiotics and is being treated since 1985. Argentina has adopted a World Health Organization (WHO) scheme with three concurrent medications high degree of effectiveness, "said dermatologist Raul Valdez in a dialogue with PERFIL.
The expert added that "in the country 20 years before the leak was a public health problem because there was one patient per 10,000 residents, but in 1983 the law on losing in Argentina was changed, deciding on compulsory and free treatment as mandatory entry , no longer needed.
– It mostly affects skin and peripheral nerves
– It's cureable
– Usually manifests as a stain without sensitivity to cold, heat and / or pain
– Transmission of the disease is by direct and long-lasting contact
– The area where the most endemic is recorded is in the provinces in the north and northeast of the country: Misiones, Chaco, Formosa, Corrientes.
– It usually manifests itself as a stain without any sensitivity to coldness, heat, and pain.
– Usually manifests as a stain without sensitivity to cold, heat and / or pain.
In this context, the Australian University Hospital's expert gave details of how the disease concept has changed over the last few years: "Dr. Luis María Baliña, a hippopotamus, is one who in 1983 proposed a change in the law, saying that" compulsory and Free treatment "and no longer" hospitalization "because it is more effective to give antibiotics than to limit the person, and this is where the changing history is lost."
"From 1985 onwards there is a very important fall in Argentina. In 2016, only 300 confirmed cases are lost throughout the country," he added.
"Anti-leukemia treatment is effective and effective," says Dr Raúl Valdez
"Today, the diagnosis becomes simple: clinical examination is performed on biopsy, a bacteriological examination is performed, and the patient starts treatment on that day." It is important that it is effectively effective and effective, two weeks after receipt, that the patient stops infectious and gives peace to the family " explained the expert.
The person skilled in the art has shown the stages of the disease:
-Incubación. If the patient comes up and doubts the liver, the diagnosis can be set within 24 hours. Nonetheless, this person might have incubated the disease, 1 or 2 years, without knowing it.
All the symptoms. The best physician ally is a pain because if you hurt something, go to a professional. Guba affects not only the skin but also the peripheral nervous system, and the patient does not feel it. When you burn or have nails in your shoe, you do not feel it and that's what is striking because a part of the body sleeps or stains. Reason for consultation is & # 39; not feeling & # 39;
-Contagio. Influence comes from person to person and close relationship, that is, relatives. We're talking about spouses, people living under the same roof and having residences, that's our risk group. The infection was mostly nasal-nos, before it was considered to touch the skin, but it turned out to be no case. Intimate and long-lasting contact is required.
-Follow. The efficacy of losing treatment is 95%, which is very much in medicine. The liver is given two years of pharmacological discharge, that is, it does not take more medication and it's been five years to know if it will not come back. In other words, partial discharge is given.
Lifeline shelter. In 1929, when Pedro Baliña (father Luisa), a dermatologist and a leprologist, proposed the mandatory right to hospitalization, leprosarisms were created in Argentina. One of them was San Francisco de Cheval (Córdoba) and another Baldomero Sommer (Buenos Aires), which is currently acting as a general hospital, "Valdez recalled.
"A lot of leprosarists reacted to that law that was appropriate, at a time when no antibiotics existed, and the only solution that the society had had to isolate infectious patients was the same with those who had tuberculosis," he said. .
"In 1983, when Luis Baliña managed to amend the law, it was established that every patient was given a free mandatory treatment by the state, not mandatory hospitalization because it was more effective to give antibiotics to the person who closed it." More efficient and cheaper, the leprosy locked and opened as health centers, "he concluded.
