GAVIRIA-GARCIA, Gladys; MAIDANA DE ZARZA, Aída  y  AROCA-MARTINEZ, Gustavo. Sociodemographic and clinical characteristics of patients with lupus nephritis. Barranquilla, Colombia. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2018, vol.16, n.2, pp.32-37. ISSN 1812-9528.  https://doi.org/10.18004/mem.iics/1812-9528/2018.016(02)32-037.

Lupus Nephritis (LN) is a significant complication of the patient with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Socio-demographic conditions may be vulnerable to the onset of the disease. This was a quantitative analytical and transversal study. Population comprised 22 patients with LN of the Renal Network of the Caribbean program attending a health care institution in the city of Barranquilla from January 2017 to January 2018. The sample was for convenience. The information was collected using a Likert scale instrument including these variables: socio-demographic characteristics (sex, geographical location, marital status), time of diagnosis of the disease, intake of medical prescription medicine. Ninety six percent was female and 4% male, 27.3% was between the ages of 34 and 45 years, 54.5% was from the city of Barranquilla, and 2.7% patients were diagnosed in a period of time lower than 2 years of having presented clinical manifestations. The socio-demographic and clinical conditions of patients with SLE that developed NL will allow developing actions for a timely diagnosis and effective intervention for better adherence to treatment, and reduce the morbidity associated with socio-demographic conditions that may influence patients in the Colombian Caribbean Region.
