Abstract

Introduction: Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis is a rare airway disease affecting children and adults, caused by papillomavirus infection.

Objective: To perform a clinical-epidemiological characterization of recurrent respiratory papillomatosis in pediatric patients and evaluate the evolution of these patients in the short and medium term.

Methods: An observational, longitudinal and prospective investigation was carried out in pediatric patients with the diagnosis of recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, attended in the Otolaryngology Service of the South Children's Hospital "Antonio María Béguez César" of Santiago de Cuba from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2016.

Results: The patients included in the study represented 3.17% of total admissions, male patients predominated (60%), the mean age was 8.6 ± 4 years. There was a statistical association between the anatomical location of the lesions and the male sex, it was the oropharyngeal location (50%) and the laryngeal location (42.5%) that were the most observed, there was no statistical association between the location of the lesions and age. Transvaginal delivery was associated with the highest number of cases of recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (85%) and treatment with excision and interferon was associated with satisfactory evolution in 95.8%.

Conclusions: The clinical characteristics and epidemiologies of patients with recurrent respiratory papillomatosis of this casuistry do not differ from the global epidemiological context, being a rare observation entity, but not rare in pediatric services.
