Resumen

DIAZ LEDESMA, Lizeth; DAVILA ACOSTA, Jorge Humberto; RODRIGUEZ SALAZAR, Victor Manuel  y  ANANOS FLORES, Dirck Martin. Frecuencia de diagnósticos de la especialidad de otorrinolaringología en el consultorio de medicina general en un centro de salud. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2003, vol.14, n.4, pp.163-166. ISSN 1018-130X.

Objective: To determinate the frequency of diagnostics by specialty in outpatients in general practice and to describe the more frequent diagnostics in otolaryngology. Material and Methods: Descriptive, transversal study. The frequency of diagnostics by specialty and in otolaryngology at general practitioner´s consulting room was determined between June and September 2002. The diagnostics were consigned by the international codification (ICE-10). Results: 2,116 consultations with 2,499 diagnostics were performed in this period. The age average was 29.85 + 17.11 years. 852 consultations (40%) were performed in male and 1,264 in female. Of the total of diagnosis, 1,226 (49%) were of otolaryngology, 219 (8.8%) of gastroenterology, 189 (7.6%) of neumology, 170 (6.8%) of reumatology and 163 (6.5%) of general infectious diseases. In otolaryngology problems, the frequency of diagnosis were 405 (33%) cases of acute rinofaringitis, 361(29.4%) acute faringitis and 358 (29.2%) acute tonsilitis. Conclusions: Otolaryngology diseases are the first cause of consultation for general practitioners in a periferical health center of the Fuerza Aerea del Perú medical service. This can be extrapolated to the other periferical health centers. Because of that the training of the general practitioners should be more oriented towards this kind of diseases.(: To determinate the frequency of diagnostics by specialty in outpatients in general practice and to describe the more frequent diagnostics in otolaryngology.
