BISERO, Elsa D; LUQUE, Graciela F  and  FRAMARIN, Reinaldo G. Reacciones adversas a fármacos antituberculosos en pediatría: A propósito de 4 hermanos. Rev. am. med. respir. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.3, pp.273-278. ISSN 1852-236X.

It is called tuberculous adverse drug effect (RAFAs), to a noxious response and not desired to one or more of the drugs used for prophylaxis, diagnosis or treatment of tuberculous disease. To attribute them to the medication, it is necessary to take into account that doses should be normal; also dismiss drug interactions and co-morbidities. It is necessary to know them and monitor them, to avoid possible risks of morbidity and mortality. Objective: to communicate the case of four brothers who presented RAFAs, to more than one TB drug.

Keywords : Tuberculosis; Adverse effects; Antituberculostatic; Hepatitis; Visual acuity; Thrombocytopenia; Reintroduction of antituberculosis treatment.
