ABSTRACTSepsis is a physiopathologic concept, that considers the interactions between bacteria and host. There are many mediators like ILK 1, IL K3, ILK 6 and NTFa, conditioning a hypoperfusion situation, that creates an emergency condition, with high mortality. Survival depends of many factors, between them, the comorbidities. The most important are: respiratory, hepatic, kidney and cardiac failure. There are many ways to evaluate the prognosis; those considered most important are the physiological variables and comorbidities. Unfortunately, there are many failures on the different instruments to evaluate prognosis in sepsis; that is the reason why we must reevaluate the role of comorbidities in sepsis.
