  • Mario Sánchez Medina Sociedad Colombiana de Endocrinología
  • Jaime Cortázar Sociedad Colombiana de Endocrinología



1.- Se describe la tnica para llevar a cabo le prueba "in vitro" de transformaci de linfocitos en linfoblastos, como modo diagntico de alergia a drogas y en el caso particular a la insulina.
2.- Se Presenta un caso diagnosticado positivamente mediante la prueba mencionada, de alergia a la insulina, en una mujer ignorada diabica, de 40 as de edad.

3.- Se comenta en forma general la utilidad  del modo diagntico de transformaci de linfocitos en linfoblastos, altamente sensible y de probada utilidad en la practica mica.
