An 11-year-Old Girl with up to 19,200 Coughs Per Day: Broadening Therapeutic Strategies
MetadatosMostrar el registro completo del ítem
An 11-year-old girl was transferred to the Universidad de Chile Clinical Hospital after 2.5 months of persistent and unresponsive treatment for coughlike spasms. On arrival, the frequency of symptoms was 1 cough every 4s, which disappeared during sleep. A multidisciplinary examination excluded allergic, viral, respiratory, epileptic, and other more usual causes of similar conditions. Two diagnoses (psychogenic cough and transient vocal tic disorder) and a mixed intervention were proposed leading to resolution in 12 days of treatment. No recurrence of symptoms was observed during several evaluations within 12 months of medical follow-up. An association between the 2 diagnoses is proposed and discussed.
