Abstract

MOSELLA V., Felipe et al. Management of breast cancer in COVID-19 pandemic: a local experience. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2020, vol.85, suppl.1, pp.S16-S22. ISSN 0048-766X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262020000700004.

The COVID-19 pandemic has generated a global stagnation in the care and medical treatment of serious and chronic illnesses due to the collapse of the health systems, the difficulty of consulting due to decreased mobility caused by forced quarantines and also because of the fear of infection when attending a health center. Cancer patients have had their medical appointments canceled, their treatments suspended or postponed, and their surgeries delayed. Breast cancer patients have not been the exception. We report the experience of a Breast Pathology Unit of a public hospital in Santiago of Chile, and the actions carried out to maintain continuity of care in a community with a high infection rate of SARS-CoV-2.

Keywords : COVID -19; breast cancer; pandemia; SARS-CoV-2.
