ALTAMIRANO, Florencia et al. El derecho a la salud: asistencia y juridicidad en la atención de niños, niñas y adolescentes en situación de calle. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2004, vol.102, n.3, pp.220-229. ISSN 0325-0075.

This work intends to show the complexity of the medical care of a child or teenager to whom "the street got into their lives" as their own place. We also intend to show that as the pediatricians have very little or non information about this subject (but they are affected by their beliefs and suppositions) they feel they have to follow their subjectivity or that they have to appeal to the legal system as a part of their medical practice. As they ignore our National Constitution and the application of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child, they do not do the most simple and the first thing they should have to do: the immediate attention of the child or teenager in any circumstances. Only after that, it is possible to see if there is a need to take some judicial measures. We include in this work two stories as an example, a critical analyses of them and some tabulations related with the laws that rule in the different provinces of our country in accordance with the National Constitution and other laws.

Palabras clave : Boys and girls in street situation; Legality; Legitimacy; International Convention on the Rights of the Child.
