Description Introduction. Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is often associated with severe comorbidities that may confuse diagnosis and treatment. The problem with comorbidity is that it affects their progress and behavior in a negative way. Methodology. We carried out a quantitative, descriptive, cross-sectional study of pediatric patients with symptoms of ASD, who visited the pediatric neurology consultation to find out the main comorbidities and their most important clinical aspects. Results. The main comorbidities found were epilepsy (36.11%), behavioral disorders (27.77%), hyperactivity (25.92%) and aggressiveness (20.3%). Discussion. The strong association between ASD and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has been described. Many individuals with ASD have psychiatric symptoms that are not part of the diagnostic criteria for the disorder. Conclusion. Many individuals have psychiatric and neurological symptoms, such as epilepsy, behavioral disorders, learning disorders, motor tics, among others. When the criteria for ASD are met, concurrent diagnoses need to be recorded.
Introducción. El Trastorno del Espectro Autista (TEA) muchas veces está asociado con comorbilidades severas que pueden confundir el diagnóstico y el tratamiento. El problema de la comorbilidad es que afecta su progreso y comportamiento de manera negativa. Metodología. Se realizó un estudio de tipo cuantitativo, descriptivo, transversal de los pacientes en edad pediátrica con clínica de TEA que acuden a la consulta de neurología infantil para conocer las principales comorbilidades y sus aspectos clínicos más importantes. Resultados. Las principales comorbilidades encontradas fueron epilepsia (36,11%), trastornos de conducta (27,77%), hiperactividad 25,92% y agresividad 20,3%. Discusión. Se ha descrito la fuerte asociación de TEA y trastorno por déficit de atención con hiperactividad (TDAH). Muchos individuos con TEA tienen síntomas psiquiátricos que no forman parte de los criterios diagnósticos del trastorno. Conclusión. Muchos individuos tienen síntomas psiquiátricos y neurológicos como epilepsias, trastornos de conductas, trastornos del aprendizaje, tic motor, entre otros. Cuando se cumplen los criterios de TEA se deben registrar los diagnósticos concurrentes. Introduction.
