    Hemorrhagic pneumonia, the disease that affected the daughter Pampita

    The disease that killed White Vicu?a is not easy to diagnose

    Hemorrhagic pneumonia, the disease that killed White Vicu?a, the daughter of Pampita Ardohain, not easy to discover by physicians.

    It is a spongy tissue inflammation of the lungs usually produced by bacteria and which generates a bleeding organ.

    Such bleeding can be externalized through the removal of blood or sputum through the accumulation in the tissue lining the lungs.

    However, sometimes bleeding in the lungs has no external symptoms and may form a hematoma within the body that can only be seen through a chest x-ray or CT.

    In such cases it may also be concluded that it is a hemorrhagic pneumonia fatcores other, such as anemia, hyperbilirubinemia (generated by the destruction of red blood cells) and the consumption of blood platelets. In fact, in the case of White Vicu?a were requested platelet donors.

    A hemorrhagic pneumonia was the cause of death of White Vicu?a

    It is an infection caused by a bacterium that affects the lungs and can lead to bleeding of internal organs. Resistance to antibiotics and treatments.

    Lost. White was the eldest daughter of Pampita and Benjamin, born in May 2006. She was hospitalized in intensive care for nine days at the Clinica Las Condes, Santiago, Chile fighting a bacterial infection that affected her lungs.

    After spending nine days hospitalized in the intensive care unit of the clinic Las Condes, Santiago, Chile, Blanca, the young daughter of Pampita Ardohain and Chilean actor Benjam?n Vicu?a, died just six years. Although there was a medical officer, learned that the girl had suffered a hemorrhagic pneumonia caused by co-infection of two bacteria.

    But what is this disease? And why could not avoid the complications? PROFILE spoke with infectious disease and pediatricians about the disease and its treatments. According to experts, there are two major pediatric causes that can lead to pneumonia results in death of a child, or it is a rare bacteria resistant to most antibiotics, or is there some underlying disease (eg, leukemia) that may have been previously diagnosed or not.

    "Pneumonia can start with a bacterial pneumonia, which is relatively common. And while there are strains of this bacterium are more aggressive than others, in Argentina and Chile is unusual species that are resistant to the action of antibiotics, something that is starting to look itself in the United States, "he told PROFILE Jorge San Juan, infectious disease expert from the Hospital Mu?iz.

    If it is a pneumonia caused by bacteria "community acquired" (ie, non-hospital) antibiotics are able to deal with the most common pathogens. However, they can not achieve their effect, the patient's condition worsens and left lung to oxygenate the blood properly. In these cases, doctors may use a team of mechanical ventilation, which carries a coma inducing drug for the patient is sedated. There are situations where this option is not sufficient and must rely on cardiopulmonary bypass (ECMO, for its acronym in English) to achieve proper oxygenation. "But these resources are not harmless aggressive and can open the door to another infection, nosocomial calls, generated by some other bacteria. This also justifies adding new broad-spectrum antibiotics, "said San Juan.

    Possible complications may arise platelets, a decrease in concentration of platelets, which are involved in blood clotting. This condition facilitates internal bleeding in various organs, a situation that is very serious and can lead to death of the patient. Among the possible causes hemorrhagic pneumonia is directly derived from the action of bacterial colonies in the lung tissue and aggression of their toxins.

    It is usual that physicians inquire if the person is vaccinated against pneumococcus, but equally there are some situations where anyway the infection runs its course. Another important point is that doctors know the patient's history, because it is not the same as being healthy immunosuppressed for any preexisting condition, which could worsen the prognosis. "While having compromised immune system is more common in adults than in children," concluded John.

                Monday, September 10 from 201201:00 | General Information

                They confirm that the Pampita daughter died of a rare bacteria
                A strange bacteria lodged in his body during a holiday on the beach in Cancun. This disease is an inflammation of the spongy tissue of the lungs.

                The model Pampita Ardohain Argentina and Chilean actor Benjam?n Vicu?a had the disease of his daughter Blanca since 30 August, when she was admitted to a clinic in Santiago de Chile.

                White, the daughter of six years of the model Pampita Ardohain Argentina and Chilean actor Benjam?n Vicu?a who died yesterday was infected with a rare bacteria that lodged in his body during a family vacation in Cancun, the Riviera Maya in Mexico, and had to be admitted to the Clinica Las Condes, Chile.

                Actually, the story of the daughter of Vicu?a and Ardohain Pampita began Thursday August 30. However, his parents chose to retain the health of his daughter and chose not to release the medical report, according to the newspaper The Sun, in its online edition.

                Finally it became known, White suffered a hemorrhagic pneumonia: a spongy tissue inflammation of the lungs, usually caused by bacteria, and that generates a bleeding in these organs and is not easily detected by physicians.

                This bleeding can be externalized through the blood removal by cough or accumulation in the tissue lining the lungs.

                However, sometimes no symptoms and can be formed outside a hematoma within the body, which can only be seen through a chest x-ray or CT.

                In such cases, hemorrhagic pneumonia may occur by other factors, such as anemia, hyperbilirubinemia (destruction of red blood cells) and platelets consumption (coagulators) of blood. According to the site 24Con latter may be the one that hit the girl.

                As known from the start, White had bacteria in their lungs could not be identified by doctors to attack them with appropriate antibiotics. Following this, the picture got worse and the baby had to be induced coma and connected to a mechanical ventilator called ECMO system (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation), which helped her breathing oxygenates your blood.

                Invasive. This treatment is invasive to the body and, according to experts, can cause destruction of platelets and red blood cells, which is why Benjamin and blood donors Pampita asked for her daughter last week.

                The small coagulopathy and then suffered a stroke, so it underwent a minor surgical emergency. Hours later, his pneumonia haemorrhagic septicemia caused him widespread that ended her life.

                  It is still unknown what was the disease
                  After White's death, give recommendations for the care of children
                  09.10.2012 | 7:01 Daniel Pizzi, director of the Pediatric Hospital told Channel 3 that the diffusion of this case serves to make people aware. He warned that they are low vaccination levels in Cordoba and country.

                  Pizzi said that even at this time of year are at high risk of respiratory diseases.

                  The sudden death of Blanche, the daughter of 6 years of Pampita Ardohain and actor Benjamin Vicu?a, raises doubts and fears of parents about health vulnerabilities of children. Though still exact cause of death of the White small, it is speculated that a virus brought their vacation in Mexico, or contracted hantavirus, dengue or H1N1. Speaking to Cadena 3 , Daniel Pizzi, director of the Children's Hospital of Cordoba, reflected on the health of children and what things can be prevented and what not. "Breastfeeding is the best of the vaccines until 6 months of life," he said while stressing two vital aspects: "No smoking in front of children because nicotine much lower immunity, and vaccination. " Regarding the latter, Pizzi said: "Vaccines are available, we VACUNATORIOS with available times, extended, and we're not comfortable vaccinating our children. Nor are vaccinating adults." Regarding symptoms of respiratory diseases, Pizzi said that babies begin to stir, usually have fever and vomiting. The doctor reiterated that there is to do "home treatments", and whether to use "immediately" to the doctor. "Hope is know the cause of death of this small to prevent, "said Pizzi, adding:" The single death of a child is a tragedy, because it is a future that is lost. " "We see that these things happen in crowded, we hardly think this can happen in those hotels where everything is so carefully. But there are viruses and bacteria, "recalled Pizzi. "immune system (the girl) was weak before the bacteria, and maybe brothers and Parents were also contacted, but nothing happened, "said the doctor. Pizzi also stressed: "If people go on vacation to Mexico have to care for the number of cases of dengue hemorrhagic fever is in Cancun." "There are things against which we can prevent, but others can not, "said the professional. On the occasion, Pizzi reminded people that despite being a day of the arrival of spring, it was not the risk of respiratory diseases. "El vaccination rates in Cordoba is 60 percent and 52 percent in the country, "said Pizzi. "We have to play these things so hard, so we are not aflojemos and people aware," said the doctor. " Thanks to the spread of these cases in the media, people become aware, "said Pizzi. Pediatric Hospital director also stressed that the public health system of Cordoba has the technology and professionals to address a case like the Pampita daughter. "Children of the village in the Gran Chaparral Cordoba receives the same attention given to this baby clinic Los Condes, Chile," Pizzi said. "We have human resources of a scientific level as good or perhaps better than the rest of the countries in the region, "he concluded. health of children.

                    Re: Girl died from hemorrhagic pneumonia

                    Several things jump out at me here:

                    - The child appears to be the daughter of a celebrity couple; this is a MAJOR news story in Argentina right now, and appears several times in list of "most read" articles at

                    - We have at least one article in this thread that indicates that two bacteria have been identified, but we don't know their names. Later articles indicate negative testing for yellow fever (which isn't even symptomatically right) and hantavirus, which are viral and not bacterial.

                    - Obviously, influenza is one of the first things that comes to my mind, but none of the articles mention any test results. Having had exposures in both hemispheres, seasonality really isn't an issue as to whether the child could have contracted flu. If the two bacteria are common, this could be a complication of an influenza infection. H3N2v is not an issue here, as the states reporting cases in the US are nowhere near the Mexican border.

                    - We don't know where precisely in Mexico the child had been. Dengue is a risk in certain parts of Mexico, but not others. And dengue is not a great symptomatic match (it shouldn't cause pneumonia). Plague is native to the US Southwest (and a great symptomatic match), so may also exist across the border in Mexico, but with a short incubation period, someone else would likely be ill by now if the girl had contracted plague.

                    I think this case has actually been diagnosed; we just haven't found any article revealing the diagnosis.

                      Thank you Alert. From what I can tell from reading many articles, the parents are with holding medical records.

                      Articles state they were in Cancun when fever and swollen glands began. Could it have been co-infection of Dengue and flu? Flu cases are in Chile and Argentina at this time and Dengue is always in Mexico in the rainy season.

                      Hopefully answers will come soon. Condolences to all family and friends.

                        This article also puts them in Cancun (ruling out plague), and says the bacteria was contracted at the beach:


                        I suspect this is going to be something exceedingly rare. But this one also suspects Legionella:


                        The problem with a dengue/flu co-infection is that the girl apparently had bacteria in her blood, and both of those are viral. So she would have had to have the misfortune to contract at least three different agents at once.

                          risks also downplayed some rare diseases, such as the "Legionnaire", because "no longer used the air conditioning systems of decades ago, which favored the proliferation of Legionella, a bacteria capable of causing severe pneumonia. "

                          There have been cases of Legionnaires in Cancun. Though I don't think i've seen anything recently. Perhaps there was a pre-exisitng condition involved as the article states.

                          Sad story, but they all are.

                            Hemorrhagic pneumonia in children is rare, but serious
                            Specialists explain that causes severe tables and has a high mortality rate.

                            Pampita , White Vicu?a , pneumonia
                            The causes of death of White Vicu?a still have no official confirmation. Clinica Las Condes, Santiago, Chile, where he was hospitalized and died, did not broadcast any part. Last night, Clarin again communicate with the institution, which failed to report whether a statement would spread or when she would.

                            However in some cases, attributing the information to unofficial sources the clinic, several Chilean media assume that the death was the result of a hemorrhagic pneumonia.

                            Clarin consulted Alejandro Teper, head of the Center of Children's Hospital Respiratory Ricardo Gutierrez. The doctor who made ​​the caveat that it could only talk generally about the condition and not the case itself, explained that hemorrhagic pneumonia is a severe infection of the lung in which bleeding occurs that makes the support measures that take are ineffective .

                            Alejandro Videla, pulmonologist Austral University Hospital, adds that hemorrhagic pneumonia is quite rare. "In our ICU we see one to three cases a year of this condition , "said the doctor.

                            "Hemorrhagic pneumonia is rare in pediatrics and when present is a serious condition , it will be more or less depending on the different organs are affected. But there are high rates of mortality, "said Teper.

                            Transcended information speaks of bacteria have attacked the body of the baby. However, Teper explained that this type of pneumonias are generally caused by a viral agent. Videla coincides in this statement and details that in the few cases where the frame may have a bacterial origin, one of the bacteria that causes it is dengue. "And in general, bacterial pneumonias have no resolutions such as this case, but end up responding to an antibiotic," said Teper.

                            White Vicu?a had entered Clinica Las Condes with cold symptoms, high fever, chills and cough. It is believed that in a recent holiday in Mexico have contracted two bacteria and, to attack, doctors kept pharmacological coma. What preceded the death would have been a generalized infection caused a failure of all organs. According to doctors consulted by local media, "the bleeding was beyond surgical" and they could not revive her.
