Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


Pleuropulmonary staphylococcia is one of the most important pulmonary abscessant infectious processes in infancy. Its high incidence and seriousness, its preference for the infant and its notable resistance to antibiotics help to make it one of the most serious therapeutical problems amongst those of infectious pathology of the infant and child. Preceded by a brief introduction on the characteristics of the disease, treatment is described, together with the different therapeutical methods, medical-surgical, which are now used. Special emphasis is laid on the indications, advantages and functional conditions of pleural drainage, likewise the dangers and complications that can be derived from its use.
