DIAZ P., Marcela; LAGOMARSINO F., Edda  y  CAVAGNARO S.M., Felipe. Immunization guide for paedriatric patients with chronic renal disease. Rev. chil. pediatr. [online]. 2002, vol.73, n.1, pp. 27-33. ISSN 0370-4106.

Immunization is a very important weapon in the prevention and eradication of infectious diseases. The Chilean Health Ministry recommends a basic vaccination schedule adapted to the epidemiological characteristics of the country. Patients suffering from chronic renal disease are often immunosuppressed as a consequence of their disease or their treatment. They therefore form a high risk group for severe infectious complications as well as developing non-optimal protection. This forces strategic changes in the recommended vaccination programme. The purpose of this article is to propose a customized immunization schedule for paedriatric patients with chronic renal failure, those receiving dialysis, transplantation or those with nephrotic syndrome

Palabras clave : immunization; immunosuppression; nephrotic syndrome; chronic renal failure; renal transplantation.
