RIVERA-FLORES, Lorena Guadalupe; DE LA TEJA-ANGELES, Eduardo  y  DURAN-GUTIERREZ, Luis Américo. Palliative Management of oral manifestations in a terminal pediatric patient with Leukemia: Clinical case report. Acta pediatr. Méx [online]. 2015, vol.36, n.2, pp.97-104. ISSN 2395-8235.

Palliative care in Mexico is based on assistance programs originated from the care of cancer patients in the terminal phase of their illness, directed to prevent suffering, accept the limits between curative and palliative treatment, pain control and attend the psychosocial and spiritual aspects. The pediatric dentistry is responsible for providing dental care as part of a multidisciplinary palliative care team and eliminate any factor that causes pain, infection or bleeding, and other common oral symptoms in these patients. We present the case of a pediatric patient with lymphoblastic leukemia in terminal phase and the intervention of each member of the multidisciplinary team including stomatology to provide comfort and improving the quality of life in the last days of life.

Palabras llave : Palliative care; terminal phase; care of mouth; multidisciplinary approach.
