Extract

Introduction: The aim of our study is to evaluate the potential correlation between oral health status and systemic inflammatory syndrome at COPD patients during exacerbation.

Method: We performed a transversal descriptive study which evaluated 14 patients hospitalized at Constanta Pneumoftiziology Hospital, diagnosed with COPD. The mean age was 65 years old and 13 patients were men. The patients were in exacerbation and we evaluated clinical, functional, biological and imagistic respiratory status. Also, they were investigated to evaluate their oral health status due to the fact that infectious oral focuses might be risk factors for COPD exacerbations.
