VIVAS PRIETO, José Manuel; CABALLERO VERA, Sandra Virginia  e  ECHEVERRY RAMIREZ, Mateo. A Diagnostic Approach of Patient with Flushing in Primary Care. Univ. Med. [online]. 2019, vol.60, n.1, pp.34-46. ISSN 0041-9095.

The definition of flushing involves a sensation of heat along with redness of the skin, caused by vasomotor influx resulting in an increased of the regional vascular blood flow due to the direct action of different mediators through the vasomotor nerves. These symptoms can be episodic or repetitive and they can be related to benign or malignant conditions. The objective of this review is to develope a rational approach of the condition at primary care, with the purpose of an early and complete diagnosis, covering the main differential diagnosis related to this condition.
