Review article of Global Journal of Men’s Health Cardiometabolic risk in elderly patients infected with HIV since 1990 Vasconcelos R.P¹, Moraes S.R.T², Andrade R.M3, Konze V.S4, Ramos R.C.F5 1,2,3,4Estudantes do Curso de Medicina – Unicap; 5Docente/Pesquisador do Curso de Medicina – UNICAP; Introduction: One of the increases in life expectancy in HIV seropositive elderly is attributed to the success of antiretroviral therapy (ART), but it may present metabolic alterations along with the aging of the HIV seropositive population, which increases the risk of thromboembolic events. Associated with this, the biological aging imposed by the virus and the inadequate urban feeding routine can evolve to a more rapid and deteriorated senescence. Objectives: To identify cardiometabolic risks in elderly HIV seropositive patients and to seek measures that promote an improvement in health as a whole. Methods: We analyzed 10 articles in the scientific data base PubMed “fulltext” with the age group from 65 years, both sexes, from 01/01/1990 to 09/22/2017. Results and Discussion: 55.7% of comorbidities were observed in HIV seropositive patients with cardiovascular diseases, the most prevalent was Diabetes. The relevant cardiometabolic risks were increased systolic (21%), diastolic (10%), LDL (31-49%) and Framingham risk score. White males were more prevalent and the median age was 60 years. In the analyzed studies, diabetes was the most frequently mentioned, although HIV infection is not a risk factor for it, since there is a higher incidence among those who are not infected. It has been shown that dyslipidemia and insulin resistance are probably due to antiretroviral treatment, which, associated with LDL, can cause coronary diseases more frequently. Nevertheless, an unbalanced diet aggravates cardiometabolic risks. Conclusion: Among the main cardiometabolic risks associated with HIV infection is the increase in blood pressure and LDL. Treatments should be effective for HIV, with full adherence to ART medications. To ...

Since breast cancer has a higher incidence in women, the development of this disease is unnoticed in men. This leads to a delayed diagnosis that results in the discovery of advanced or late stage male breast cancer. The conscientization of men to seek the mastologist as the perception of some change is essential, in order to abolish prejudice and male resistance.

Methodology: Narrative bibliographic review, using electronic databases: Scientific and Technical Literature of Latin America and the Caribbean (LILACS), Scientific Electronic Library Online (SCIELO) and Virtual Health Library (VHL) .Through the following keywords found in the Descriptors in Sciences (DeCS): breast cancer, male breast cancer. The original articles published in the last eight years were evaluated. Results and Discussion: Male breast cancer affects men from 60 to 70 years old, being rare before the age of 30. In Brazil, the southern states of the country, especially Rio Grande do Sul, this disease occurs in higher incidence. The male mammary gland, usually atrophied, with low production of female hormones, resembles females when cancer is present, such as: appearance of nodules in the region of the breasts and below the armpits, as well as secretion in the nipples. The etiology is unknown, being associated with genetic factors, environmental factors, hormonal factors and others. Understanding of the disease and self-care and self-examination awareness are instruments that have avoided mastectomy. Conclusion: Consult a mastologist immediately when presenting ...
