In the high doses pyrimethamine causes megaloblastic anemia generic 100mg epitol amex, agranulocytosis and thrombocytopenia (leucovorin calcium is given concurrently) discount 100mg epitol mastercard. Sulfones and Sulfonamides Sulfonamides and sulfones have blood schizonticidal action against P falciparum by inhibition of dihydrofolic acid synthesis buy cheap epitol 100mg on-line. But epitol 100mg, the drugs have weak effects against the blood schizonts of P vivax, and they are not active against the gametocytes or liver stages of P falciparum or P vivax. When a sulfonamide or sulfone is combined with an antifol, synergistic blockade of folic acid synthesis occurs in susceptible plasmodia. Sulfadoxine with pyrimethamine (Fansidar) and dapsone with pyrimethamine (Maloprim) are the most used combination. Pyrimethamine-Sulfadoxine (Fansidar) Pyrimethamine-Sulfadoxine (Fansidar) is well absorbed. Its components display peak plasma levels within 2-8 hours and are excreted mainly by the kidneys. Average half-lives are about 170 hours for sulfadoxine and 80-110 hours for pyrimethamine. Pyrimethamine-Sulfadoxine is effective against certain strains of falciparum malaria. But, quinine must be given concurrently in treatment of seriously ill patients, because fansidar is only slowly active. Presumptive Treatment of Chloroquine-Resistant Falciparum Malaria Adverse Effects: Rare adverse effects to single-dose Fansidar are those associated with sulfonamide allergy, including the hematologic, gastrointestinal, central nervous system, dermatologic, and renal systems. However, in our situation, it used for prevention of malaria in pregnant women after the first trimester. Contraindications: Fansidar is contraindicated in patients who have had adverse reactions to sulfonamides, in pregnancy at term, in nursing women, or in children less than 2 months of age. Fansidar should be used with caution in those with severe allergic disorders, and bronchial asthma. Mefloquine Mefloquine is used in prophylaxis and treatment of chloroquine-resistant and multidrug-resistant falciparum malaria. It can only be given orally because intense local irritation occurs with parenteral use. The drug is highly bound to plasma proteins, concentrated in red blood cells, and extensively distributed to the tissues, including the central nervous system. Its elimination half-life, which varies from 13 days to 33 days, tends to be shortened in patients with acute malaria. Sporadic and low levels of resistance to mefloquine have been reported from Southeast Asia and Africa. Resistance to the drug can emerge rapidly, and resistant strains have been found in areas where the drug has never been used. Clinical uses: Prophylaxis of Chloroquine-Resistant Strains of P falciparum and Treatment of Chloroquine-Resistant P falciparum Infection Adverse Reactions: The frequency and intensity of reactions are dose-related. In rophylactic doses it causes; gastrointestinal disturbances, headache, dizziness, syncope, and extra systoles and transient neuropsychiatric events (convulsions, depression, and psychoses). In treatment doses; the incidence of neuropsychiatric symptoms (dizziness, headache, visual disturbances, tinnitus, insomnia, restlessness, anxiety, depression, confusion, acute psychosis, or seizures) may increase. Contraindications: A history of epilepsy, psychiatric disorders, arrhythmia, sensitivity to quinine and the first trimester of pregnancy. Doxycycline Doxycycline is generally effective against multidrug-resistant P falciparum. The drug is also active against the blood stages of the other Plasmodium species but not against the liver stages. Halofantrine Halofantrine hydrochloride is an oral schizonticide for all four malarial species. Qinghaosu (Artemisinin) These drugs are especially useful in treatment of cerebral falciparum malaria. Drugs used in amebiasis Amebiasis is infection by the protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica. E histolytica infection may present as a severe intestinal infection (dysentery), a mild to moderate symptomatic intestinal infection, an asymptomatic intestinal infection, ameboma, liver abscess, or other type 183 of extraintestinal infection. The choice of drug depends on the clinical presentation and on the desired site of drug action, ie, in the intestinal lumen or in the tissues. All of the antiamebic drugs act against Entamoeba histolytica trophozoites, but most are not effective against the cyst stage. Tissue amebicides eliminate organisms primarily in the bowel wall, liver, and other extraintestinal tissues and are not effective against organisms in the bowel lumen. Metronidazole, and tinidazole are highly effective against amebas in the bowel wall and other tissues. Emetine and dehydroemetine act on organisms in the bowel wall and other tissues but not on amebas in the bowel lumen. Asymptomatic Intestinal Infection: The drugs of choice, diloxanide furoate and iodoquinol. Diloxanide furoate or iodoquinol should also be given to eradicate intestinal infection whether or not organisms are found in the stools. An advantage of metronidazole is its effectiveness against anaerobic bacteria, which are a major cause of bacterial liver abscess. Ameboma or Extraintestinal Forms of Amebiasis: Metronidazole is the drug of choice. Dehydroemetine is an alternative drug; chloroquine cannot be used because it does not reach high enough tissue concentrations to be effective (except in the liver). Metronidazole Pharmacokinetics: Oral metronidazole is readily absorbed and permeates all tissues including cerebrospinal fluid, breast milk, alveolar bone, liver abscesses, vaginal secretions, and seminal fluid. Intracellular concentrations rapidly approach extracellular levels whether administered orally or intravenously. Mechanism of Action: The nitro group of metronidazole is chemically reduced by ferredoxin within sensitive organisms. The reduction products appear to be responsible for killing the organisms by reacting with various intracellular macromolecules. Clinical Uses: Metronidazole is active against amebiasis, urogenital trichomoniasis, giardiasis, anaerobic infections, acute ulcerative gingivitis, cancrum Oris, decubitus ulcers, and bacterial vaginitis and Helicobacter pylori infection. Rare adverse effects include vomiting, diarrhea, insomnia, weakness, dizziness, stomatitis, rash, urethral burning, vertigo, and paresthesias. Other Nitroimidazoles Other nitroimidazole derivatives include tinidazole, and ornidazole. They have similar adverse effects Because of its short half-life, metronidazole must be administered every 8 hours; the other drugs can be administered at longer intervals. However, with the exception of tinidazole, the other nitroimidazoles have produced poorer results than metronidazole in the treatment of amebiasis. Chloroquine Chloroquine reaches high liver concentrations and is highly effective when given with emetine in the treatment and prevention of amebic liver abscess. Adverse Effects: Sterile abscesses, pain, tenderness, and muscle weakness in the area of the injection are frequent. Emetine and dehydroemetine should not be used in patients with cardiac or renal disease, in patients with a history of polyneuritis, or in young children or liver abscess. Diloxanide Furoate Diloxanide furoate is directly amebicidal, but its mechanism of action is not known. In the 2gut, diloxanide furoate is split into diloxanide and furoic acid; about 90% of the diloxanide is rapidly absorbed and then conjugated to form the glucuronide, which is rapidly excreted in the urine. For mild intestinal disease, and other forms of amebiasis it is used with another drug. Iodoquinol Iodoquinol is effective against organisms in the bowel lumen but not against trophozoites in the intestinal wall or extraintestinal tissues. Iodoquinol is an alternative drug for the treatment of asymptomatic or mild to moderate intestinal amebiasis. Adverse Effects: Reversible severe neurotoxicity (optic atrophy, visual loss, and peripheral neuropathy). Mild and infrequent adverse effects that can occur at the standard dosage include diarrhea, which usually stops after several days, anorexia, nausea and vomiting, gastritis, abdominal discomfort, slight enlargement of the thyroid gland, headache, skin rashes, and perianal itching. Paromomycin Sulfate Paromomycin is an alternative drug for the treatment of asymptomatic amebiasis. In mild to moderate intestinal disease, it is an alternative luminal drug used concurrently with metronidazole.

It squeezes through between two endothelial cells and discount 100mg epitol, along the chemotactic gradient generic 100 mg epitol with visa, approaches the focus of infection buy 100 mg epitol with visa. In the process cheap epitol 100 mg without prescription, they quickly die, as the harsh conditions necessary to kill bacteria also lead to irreparable cell damage. Mast cells Mast cells are activated to degranulate and release histamine by a broad spectrum of stimuli: mechanical stress including scratching or laceration, heat, cold and, as a consequence of complement activation, C5a. Later, following an adaptive immune response, mast cells may degranulate in response to cross linking of antibodies of the IgE type. Endothelial cells and thrombocytes To avoid too much redundancy, we will take a closer look at the activation of endothelial cells and platelets in cardiocascular pathophysiology. Activation of macrophages and dendritic cells via pattern recognition receptors To sense the presence of pathogens, macrophages and dendritic cells express a much broader spectrum of receptors than neutrophils. Many of these receptors reside at the plasma membrane: • One group of receptors, C-type lectins, recognize certain sugar units that are typically located at the terminal position of carbohydrate chains on pathogen surfaces. The "mannose receptor" recognizes terminal mannose, N-acetyglucosamin or fucose, in a parallel to mannan binding lectin. Activation of these macrophage receptors leads to phagocytosis and in most cases killing and break-down of ingested bacteria. Via the bloodstream, these cytokines also reach the liver, where they launch another tool of non-specific defense, the production of acute phase proteins. They are "heavy earth moving equipment", as their name implies, able to phagocytize large amounts of particulate matter. Dendritic cells are mainly on the adaptive side of defense: their main goal is to gather all kinds of antigenic materials, take it to the lymph node and show it to T cells. Many antigens are taken up by macropinocytosis ("drinking a whole lot"), a mechanism of taking up large gulps of surrounding fluids with all soluble antigens. A third way for dendritic cells to take up antigens is by being infected with viruses, which, as we shall see later, is important to start an adaptive antiviral immune response. Many of our dendritic cells are quite long-lived, having originated during developmental stages before birth from hematopoietic cells in the wall of the yolk sac or the fetal liver. Dendritic cells have two stages of life: while functionally young and immature, they roam the periphery, eagerly collecting stuff but lacking the tools to activate T cells. Where they go is determined by chemokine receptors, with which they follow the chemokine trail into peripheral tissues. Innate lymphoid cells Our innate defence system contains cells that look just like B or T lymphocytes in the microscope, yet express neither B nor T cells receptors. These cells may be activated by cytokines released by macrophages or dendritic cells and contribute to non-adaptive defence. Drugs blocking these receptors are frequently used in the treatment of allergies, unwanted aspects of inflammation (runny, stuffed nose) and motion sickness. Via H1 receptors, histamine increases small vessel diameter and permeability; via H4 receptors, it recruits eosinophils and other leukocytes. However, a frequent unwanted side effect of these activities is tissue destruction, as proteases are also released from the cells. On demand, arachidonic acid is mobilized from the membranes by phospholipases and metabolized in either of two directions: to prostaglandins by cyclooxygenases or to leukotrienes by lipoxygenase. Due to their very short half-life, prostaglandins primarily influence the immediate neighborhood of the producing cell. They have very different functions in different tissues; their pro-inflammatory functions are just a small part of their spectrum. For these reasons, it does not do prostaglandins justice to describe their functions in generalized terms: they depend strongly on type and state of tissue and the mix of specific prostaglandin molecules present. Two other prostaglandins have opposing effects on blood coagulation: thromboxane, produced by thrombocytes, promotes coagulation, while prostacyclin, released by endothelial cells, is inhibiting it. Fever reduces proliferation rates of many pathogens, as their enzymes are optimized to function at normal body temperature. At the same time, some steps required for an adaptive immune response (antigen presentation) are accelerated. From an evolutionary point of view, fever is an old trick in fighting infections: if possible, poikilothermic fish swim to warmer waters upon experimental Klebsiella-infection, which increases survival rates. Leukotrienes C4, D4, E4 cause bronchial constriction and enhance vascular permeability, making them key players in bronchial asthma. Pharmacology cross reference: Due to their broad spectrum of effects, prostaglandins and leukotrienes offer numerous opportunities to interfere pharmacologically, with, unsurprisingly, equal opportunities for unwanted side effects. Cortisol and related glucocorticosteroids inhibit the phospholipase which releases arachidonic acid from phospholipids. As this curtails synthesis of both prostaglandins and leukotrienes, glucocorticoids have a strong anti-inflammatory effect. The main bifurcation in arachidonic acid metabolism may result in hyperactivity of one pathway in case the other is blocked. It has many pro-inflammatory effects, including platelet activation, increasing vascular permeability, bronchial constriction and neutrophil chemotaxis and activation. This works very well to kill phagocytized pathogens, but also kills the phagocyte and frequently damages surrounding tissue. It denotes a polypeptide signaling molecule produced primarily, but not exclusively, by cells of the immune system with the aim of coordinating the defense functions of many different cell types. Designated chemokines, these are small (8-10 kDa) proteins with a conserved structure of three β-sheets and a C-terminal α-helix. To improve on the bewildering chaos of traditional designations, a unified nomenclature was introduced. The guiding system of chemokine-gradient fields and chemokine receptors enables all cells of the immune system to arrive in the right place at the right time. Cortisol and other glucocorticoids at higher than physiologic concentrations are highly immunosuppressive. Recombinant proteins counteracting specific cytokines can be used to inhibit limited aspects of an immune reaction without exposing the patient to the danger of generalized immune suppression. Receptor activation results in expression of genes, the products of which contribute to defending the organism against infection. Purpose of the molecule: Coordination of a non-adaptive defense reaction on a local and a systemic level. Strategy: Local level: In case an epithelial barrier is breached, it is essential to confine the ensuing bacterial infection to this area. The most dangerous development possible would be the distribution of these pathogens via the blood over the entire organism, a life-threatening complication termed sepsis. This can be prevented by enhancing permeability of the small blood vessels and closing the draining venules by clotting. Driven by blood pressure, which is locally increased by vasodilatation, this creates a slow movement of tissue lymph toward the regional lymph node, taking some of the pathogens with it. At the same time, leukocytes are recruited from the blood to the primary infection area and endothelial cells are instructed to help them pass. Everywhere in the body, the coagulation cascade is kicked off, together with the fibrinolytic cascade, consuming all available clotting factors (disseminated intravascular coagulation) and causing profuse bleeding. This causes fever, the sensation of feeling sick with conservation of energy, but mobilization of energy to produce more defense equipment: plasma proteins and neutrophils. These two effects allow complement components and IgG to reach the source of infection, they facilitate the extravasation of leukocytes and increase the flow to local lymph nodes. Tissue lymph flow carries pathogen antigens --packaged in phagocytes and ohterwise-- into lymph nodes, helping to initiate an adaptive immune response. This process is already in full swing after one or two days, while it takes much longer to produce antibodies. Acute phase peptide hepcidin blocks iron export via ferroportin, a membrane protein expressed in many cell types including macrophages. Iron is a limiting factor for many pathogens (including staphylococci, streptococci, fungi); in fighting them, our organism may therefore gain an advantage by "locking iron away". In chronic inflammation, however, 12 continuing misallocation of iron may result in anemia, as iron remains unavailable not only for pathogens, but also for erythropoiesis. This is probably due to the fact that they are produced in human cells, making their appearance "less unfamiliar" than that of other pathogens. Three types of interferons were originally described, depending on the cell type used for purification: α, β and γ. Type-I-interferons are signaling molecules secreted by virus-infected cells with the aim of slowing or inhibiting virus replication in neighboring cells. This severely restricts replication opportunities for any virus infecting these cells, as it relies on the host cell machinery to produce virus proteins.

Los folículos pilosos epitol 100 mg free shipping, que a diferencia de las anteriores microscópicas estructuras best 100mg epitol, sí muestran sus vellos order epitol 100mg with mastercard, no reciben sangre por lo que comienzan a caerse generic epitol 100mg visa. Los vellos inicialmente son ralos y finalmente desaparecen, mostrándose la alopecia. Las uñas, que son las estructuras más distales de la extremidad, se tornan vulnerables a la isquemia, por lo que es frecuente que se “entierren”, o aparezcan 63 a su alrededor, o en su lecho, pequeñas lesiones, inflamaciones, abscesos, infecciones, que en su conjunto reciben el nombre de paroniquias, donde paro significa proximidad y niquia se refiere a uña. Los espacios interdigitales son especialmente proclives a las micosis que en estado de isquemia se tornan peligrosas puertas de entrada de infecciones catastróficas. Otras lesiones de piel, como pequeñas cortaduras, golpecitos sin importancia aparente, arañazos, pinchazos, rasponazos, rozaduras de zapatos apretados, se convierten en ulceraciones crónicas de localización atípica, mal llamadas traumáticas, que no cicatrizan por estar comprometida la irrigación de la piel de la extremidad y pueden comprometer su viabilidad. Los músculos involucionan por el deterioro en su irrigación, además de su falta de ejercicio por limitaciones de la marcha. Lo más importante al examen físico es la búsqueda y localización de los pulsos arteriales. Existe una enraizada tendencia en todo alumno y profesional joven a restarle importancia a este importante hallazgo en el examen físico, de manera que se escribe con frecuencia después de un examen superficial o veloz: “todos los pulsos arteriales, presentes y sincrónicos”, como si siempre, o casi siempre, todos estuviesen presentes. Los pulsos arteriales deben buscarse con todo rigor en el examen físico de cualquier paciente. Paciente masculino de 57 años, fumador de 2 cajetillas diariamente, obeso, hipertenso, probablemente diabético y con hipercolesterolemia, pues ni él mismo 64 conoce que tiene su aorta abdominal ocluida y sufre de una enfermedad de Leriche. Fuma en la mañana uno o dos cigarrillos antes de desayunar exageradamente con huevos, tocino, mantequilla. Fuma otro cigarrillo mientras llega a buscarlo el chofer de la empresa de la cual es funcionario. Llega a la empresa, da igualmente unos 10 pasos hasta el ascensor que lo lleva al cuarto piso. Allí realiza su trabajo, sentado, con aire acondicionado, tenso por sus grandes responsabilidades y contrariedades, fuma continuamente. En el curso de los últimos seis meses ha notado que la uña del dedo grueso del pie derecho se ha enterrado en varias oportunidades y ahora lo ha molestado de nuevo por lo que decide buscar ayuda médica. Uña del pie encarnada El médico lo ve y ante la demanda del enfermo que le pide le “saque la uña” pues lo ha molestado frecuentemente en los últimos meses, anestesia su dedo y le extrae la uña. Al día siguiente el paciente acude de nuevo para curar la zona, pero no ha dormido nada por el intenso dolor que no se alivió con ningún analgésico. En el curso de los días todo el antepié se vuelve casi negro y el médico asustado y perplejo por la evidente gangrena, lo remite al Hospital donde lo amputan esa misma noche, a nivel del muslo, casi a nivel del pliegue inguinal al faltarle ambos pulsos femorales. Este caso por sus hábitos de vida, otros porque no 65 deambulan al tener limitaciones físicas: operados de cadera, ciegos, sordos, sufren de artritis. Ante cualquier enfermo que consulte por paroniquia debemos buscar la presencia de sus pulsos. Si los tiene, entonces es otra la causa de su uña enterrada: zapato apretado, uña mal recortada, un pisotón en el baile… 2. Antes de realizar cualquier intervención en una extremidad debemos asegurarnos de que los pulsos periféricos estén presentes. Ejemplos de intervenciones: extracción de uñas, biopsias de piel, resección de várices, lipomas, quistes, gangliones, correcciones de dedos, entre otros. Propia del hombre-joven-fumador que enferma sus venas superficiales y profundas, periféricas o viscerales, así como las arterias de mediano calibre en sus cuatro extremidades. Enfermedad de las extremidades, preferentemente superiores, de la mujer joven que sufre de crisis de Raynaud y sugiere colagenosis, en particular esclerodermia y lupus. La comunicación patológica entre una arteria y una vena de las extremidades, casi siempre producida por heridas penetrantes, roba la sangre que debe llegar a ella desencadenando la claudicación intermitente. La sangre secuestrada retorna a través de un cortocircuito que llevará más temprano que tarde a la insuficiencia cardíaca por gasto aumentado o la endocarditis bacteriana. Cualquier compresión que afecte el calibre de una arteria disminuye su flujo y puede producir claudicación intermitente. El sector más comprimido es el axilosubclavio, en la salida torácica y mucho más frecuentemente por una costilla cervical supernumeraria. En este caso la claudicación es de miembros superiores: al peinarse, tender la ropa, sostenerse en el ómnibus, o trabajar con los brazos elevados como los estomatólogos, pintores y mecánicos. Es frecuente el soplo sistólico por compresión extrínseca en la fosa supraclavicular. Existen numerosos procedimientos diagnósticos, invasivos o no, con ventajas y desventajas, para precisar el sitio, extensión y características de la obstrucción. De igual manera existen diversos procedimientos quirúrgicos destinados a mejorar el flujo arterial a una extremidad. Puede mejorarse el flujo de las colaterales por medio de la simpatectomía, mientras que el flujo troncular se mejora desobstruyendo la arteria enferma o derivándola mediante el procedimiento denominado by pass o puente. Más recientemente el desarrollo de endoprótesis ha permitido realizar revascularizaciones, especialmente en las zonas de aorta e ilíacas, por la vía endovascular, con mucho menos tiempo y riesgos, aunque con costos aún muy elevados. Definir las formas anatomopatológicas mas frecuentes y las manifestaciones clínicas específicas de cada uno de los territorios afectados: carotídeo y vertebral. Determinar las diferentes formas de tratamiento así como destacar la importancia del tratamiento preventivo. Enfatizar la necesidad absoluta de auscultar las arterias carótidas en todo examen físico en busca de soplos patológicos. Ellas tienen su origen dentro o fuera del cráneo, de ahí que se clasifiquen en intracraneales y extracraneales. Actualmente se conoce, que esta localización extracraneal es la causa de más de 50 % de los episodios cerebrovasculares. Estos cuadros pueden variar desde ser fugaces, sin dejar secuelas, hasta ser permanentes cuando determinan invalidez del enfermo, incluso su muerte. Causas ¾ Desde el punto de vista anatómico 69 La estenosis de las arterias carótidas, casi siempre por ateromas. Estenosis La trombosis es otra de las causas, pero su cuadro es agudo y se instala en una arteria previamente estenosada por aterosclerosis, cuando el ateroma se desestabiliza. Por ejemplo una deshidratación o hipotensión, concentran la sangre o hacen más lento su movimiento y por lo tanto la inestabilidad del ateroma produce la oclusión súbita de la arteria que asciende al cráneo, cuya evolución y pronóstico son muy graves. Una carótida enferma con placas de ateromas puede ocasionar émbolos, debido a ulceraciones de estas placas en las que puede ocurrir un desprendimiento del material ateromatoso, es la ateroembolia. De hecho, muchas de las isquemias transitorias no son solamente producto de serios trastornos hemodinámicos, sino también de microembolias desprendidas del ateroma carotídeo que se impactan en las pequeñas arterias del interior del encéfalo. De igual manera, un corazón enfermo puede ser causa de embolias tal como se precisa en el capítulo 12. La acodadura y el enrollamiento, se producen cuando la arteria se alarga debido a una hipertensión arterial severa de muchos años de evolución. El alargamiento termina acodándose y en el grado extremo, enrollándose y se evidencia como una tumoración visible delante del músculo esternocleidomastoideo, que late, se expande y hasta puede tener un soplo sistólico, por lo que semeja un aneurisma, que es infrecuente en la arteria carótida. Cuadro clínico Es diferente según se afecte el territorio de la arteria carótida o vertebral. La derecha nace por detrás de la articulación esternocostoclavicular de ese lado como rama ascendente de la bifurcación del tronco arterial braquiocefálico, que también emite de forma casi horizontal y hacia afuera, la arteria subclavia. Del lado izquierdo la arteria carótida primitiva nace como segunda rama del arco aórtico, tiene una porción intratorácica y es unos centímetros más larga que la derecha. Ambas ascienden por delante del músculo esternocleidomastoideo y forman parte del paquete vasculonervioso del cuello, junto con la vena yugular interna y el nervio neumogástrico, vago, o (X) par. Un centímetro por encima de los cartílagos de la laringe se divide en dos ramas: interna y externa, que es el sitio preferente para su obligada auscultación. La externa busca hacia fuera y arriba, la glándula parótida y en su intimidad se divide en temporal superficial y maxilar interna para irrigar el cuero cabelludo, músculos masticadores y cara. La carótida interna se introduce por la base del cráneo y ya en su interior, contribuye con sus ramas terminales a conformar el polígono de Willis, con frecuencia un heptágono, que en general anastomosa ambas carótidas internas entre sí, así como con las vertebrales. La carótida interna es responsable de la irrigación de los dos tercios anteriores de los hemisferios cerebrales, con sus áreas motoras y sensitivas, los ojos y los oídos, lo que explica el cuadro clínico. Sensitivos: Calambres o adormecimiento, entumecimiento del hemicuerpo contralateral. Visuales: Amaurosis fugaz, del mismo lado que se encuentra la carótida afectada, o sea ipsilateral. Signos Examen neurológico: - Fuerza muscular disminuida en el hemicuerpo contralateral, hasta la hemiplejia. Examen del cuello: - Inspección: Cara anterolateral del cuello, puede ser normal o estar presente una tumoración que late por acodadura o enrollamiento y más raramente aneurismas. Es muy difícil diferenciar, por la palpación, si es una acodadura- enrollamiento o un aneurisma, lo que se hará por ultrasonografía.
