International Medical Humanities Review / Revista Internacional de Humanidades Médicas Thu, 24 Feb 2022 00:00:00 +0100 Oculomotor Nerve Paralysis in a Patient with Thrombocytopenic Purpura and Antiphospholipid Syndrome <p>We describe the case of a patient with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura refractory to treatment, who was admitted due to headache, exotropia of the right eye, palpebral ptosis, severe thrombocytopenia, requiring transfusion. A contrasted brain MRI was performed which revealed subarachnoid hemorrhage in the right frontal operculum, requiring a negative infectious, deficiency, autoimmunity and vasculitic profile, with a profile for positive antiphospholipid syndrome. Vasa nervorum thrombosis was considered a possible pathophysiological mechanism, which favored incomplete oculomotor cranial nerve palsy. Anticoagulation with warfarin was started, immunomodulatory therapy was adjusted for the underlying disease, with favorable evolution on the part of the patient.</p> Neiby Johana Rivera Rojas, Karen Marcela Muñoz Martínez, Andrea Catalina Nassar Tobón Copyright (c) 2022 MEDICA REVIEW.

The challenges faced by a person with a chronic and complex disease such as IBD-Crohn require a constant state of alertness to maintain control and management of signs and symptoms. It is also necessary to understand that absorbing proper and state-of-the-art medications does not minimize the mental triggers that can be triggered through poorly designed behaviors, thoughts, interactions and emotions within oneself.</p> Fátima Farias Copyright (c) 2022 MEDICA REVIEW.
