  • The goal of this report is to present an interesting case of generalized demodicosis, associated with a generalized pyoderma due to a resistant strain of Staphyloccocus aureus , and haematogenous osteomyelitis. (vin.com)
  • femur
  • History: He had been diagnosed pyoderma and treated with cephalexin orally during 7 days, then he had fever and mild lameness of the left rear limb, at that moment the dog received a single dose of dexamethasone, then an X-ray was taken and osteomyelitis of the left femur was diagnosed and treated with ceftriaxone IM for ten days, he was also given dipyrone, vitamin B and proteolytic enzymes.

  • findings
  • The histopathologic findings were of osteodystrophy, osteomyelitis, chondrodystrophy, though no bacteria could be isolated from the bone sample. (vin.com)
  • antibiotic
  • However, the substantial majority of available animal data, human case series and non-randomized prospective trials suggest that the addition of Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO 2 ) therapy to routine surgical and antibiotic management in previously refractory osteomyelitis is safe and improves the ultimate rate of infection resolution. (uhms.org)
  • In contrast, if prompt clinical response is not noted or osteomyelitis recurs after this initial treatment period, then continuation of the existing antibiotic and HBO 2 treatment regimen is unlikely to be effective. (uhms.org)

  • pediatric patients
  • As many as 30% of pediatric patients with long-bone osteomyelitis may develop deep venous thrombosis (DVT). (medscape.com)
  • Urso and associates evaluated 40 pediatric patients (aged 2-16 y) with osteomyelitis to assess the roles of various imaging modalities, including conventional radiology, bone scanning with 99m Tc methylene diphosphonate (MDP), scintigraphy with 99m Tc hexamethylenepropyleneamineoxime (HMPAO)-labeled leukocytes, CT, and MRI.

  • The percentage of osteomyelitis cases involving MRSA increased from 22.6% in one two-and-a-half-year period to 31.1% in the next, reported Octavio Ramilo, M.D., of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, and colleagues in the July/August issue of the Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics .
