Resumen

POSE L, Georgette et al. PNEUMATOSIS INTESTINALIS AND COW’SMILK PROTEINE ALLERGY. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2008, vol.14, n.2, pp.68-72. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082008000200005.

Pneumatosis intestinalis in newly born infants constitutes a clinical manifestation greatly associated with the presence of necrotizing enterocolitis, a highly severe medical condition. This study provides a clinical case series presenting with bloody stools and benign pneumatosis intestinalis. A short colonoscopy proven diagnosis of allergic colitis was made, which was confirmed in the 87,5% (7/8) of the cases, while a number of biopsies showed eosinophiles exceeding the normal ranges. Diagnosis in 12,5% of patients (1/8) was based on clinical records, lab-tests, imaging and treatment responses. The suppression of cow's milk protein in the maternal diet or the replacement of human milk by a substitute free from that protein led to a rapid regression of symptomatology.

Palabras clave : Pneumatosis; necrotizing enterocolitis.
