A circumscribed collection of purulent exudate in the brain, due to bacterial and other infections. The majority are caused by spread of infected material from a focus of suppuration elsewhere in the body, notably the PARANASAL SINUSES, middle ear (see EAR, MIDDLE); HEART (see also ENDOCARDITIS, BACTERIAL), and LUNG. Penetrating CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA and NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES may also be associated with this condition. Clinical manifestations include HEADACHE; SEIZURES; focal neurologic deficits; and alterations of consciousness. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp712-6)
Circumscribed collections of suppurative material occurring in the spinal or intracranial EPIDURAL SPACE. The majority of epidural abscesses occur in the spinal canal and are associated with OSTEOMYELITIS of a vertebral body; ANALGESIA, EPIDURAL; and other conditions. Clinical manifestations include local and radicular pain, weakness, sensory loss, URINARY INCONTINENCE, and FECAL INCONTINENCE. Cranial epidural abscesses are usually associated with OSTEOMYELITIS of a cranial bone, SINUSITIS, or OTITIS MEDIA. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p710 and pp1240-1; J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 1998 Aug;65(2):209-12)

A powerful flexor of the thigh at the hip joint (psoas major) and a weak flexor of the trunk and lumbar spinal column (psoas minor). Psoas is derived from the Greek "psoa", the plural meaning "muscles of the loin". It is a common site of infection manifesting as abscess (PSOAS ABSCESS). The psoas muscles and their fibers are also used frequently in experiments in muscle physiology.
Conditions in which increased pressure within a limited space compromises the BLOOD CIRCULATION and function of tissue within that space. Some of the causes of increased pressure are TRAUMA, tight dressings, HEMORRHAGE, and exercise. Sequelae include nerve compression (NERVE COMPRESSION SYNDROMES); PARALYSIS; and ISCHEMIC CONTRACTURE.
An individual's objective and insightful awareness of the feelings and behavior of another person. It should be distinguished from sympathy, which is usually nonobjective and noncritical. It includes caring, which is the demonstration of an awareness of and a concern for the good of others. (From Bioethics Thesaurus, 1992)
Conditions characterized by a significant discrepancy between an individual's perceived level of intellect and their ability to acquire new language and other cognitive skills. These disorders may result from organic or psychological conditions. Relatively common subtypes include DYSLEXIA, DYSCALCULIA, and DYSGRAPHIA.
Current Procedural Terminology
Phenotype of mice and macrophages deficient in both phagocyte oxidase and inducible nitric oxide synthase. (1/1459)The two genetically established antimicrobial mechanisms of macrophages are production of reactive oxygen intermediates by phagocyte oxidase (phox) and reactive nitrogen intermediates by inducible nitric oxide synthase (NOS2). Mice doubly deficient in both enzymes (gp91(phox-/-)/NOS2(-/-)) formed massive abscesses containing commensal organisms, mostly enteric bacteria, even when reared under specific pathogen-free conditions with antibiotics. Neither parental strain showed such infections. Thus, phox and NOS2 appear to compensate for each other's deficiency in providing resistance to indigenous bacteria, and no other pathway does so fully. Macrophages from gp91(phox-/-)/NOS2(-/-) mice could not kill virulent Listeria. Their killing of S. typhimurium, E. coli, and attenuated Listeria was markedly diminished but demonstrable, establishing the existence of a mechanism of macrophage antibacterial activity independent of phox and NOS2.

Obturator internus muscle abscess in children: report of seven cases and review. (2/1459)Obturator internus muscle (OIM) abscess is an uncommon entity often mistaken for septic arthritis of the hip. We describe seven children with OIM abscess and review seven previously reported cases. The most common presenting symptoms were hip or thigh pain (14 patients), fever (13), and limp (13). The hip was flexed, abducted, and externally rotated in 11 patients. Magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography (CT) were diagnostic for OIM abscess in the 14 patients. Associated abscesses were located in the obturator externus muscle (5 patients), psoas muscle (2), and iliac muscle (1). The etiologic agents were Staphylococcus aureus (8 patients), Streptococcus pyogenes (2), Neisseria gonorrhoeae (2), and Enterococcus faecalis (1). Three patients underwent CT-guided percutaneous drainage, and three had surgical drainage. Three patients had ischial osteomyelitis in addition to OIM abscess. The 11 children with uncomplicated OIM abscess were treated for a median of 28 days. All patients had an uneventful recovery. (+info)
Pathogenesis of experimental Pseudomonas keratitis in the guinea pig: bacteriologic, clinical, and microscopic observations. (3/1459)Uniformly severe corneal infections were produced in guinea pigs by intracorneal injection of about 10 viable Pseudomonas aeruginosa. After a brief lag period, multiplication of bacteria was rapid, reaching geometric means of 280,000 after 24 hr and of 5 million after 48 hr. Within 8 hr after inoculation, polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) began to infiltrate the anterior two thirds of the stroma. Stromal cells adjacent to the injection site became necrotic and appeared to be engulfed by PMNs. By 14 to 16 hr, an abscess containing a dense aggregate of PMNs and multiplying bacteria developed in the central stroma. By 16 to 24 hr, collagen breakdown was apparent within and around the abscess. Ultrastructural evidence of collagen breakdown included loss of intact collagen fibrils, tactoid formation, and accumulation of amorphous electron-dense material. The area of liquefactive necrosis gradually enlarged, and many corneas perforated after 3 to 4 days. Because the course of infection is highly reproducible, this model should prove useful for many studies of experimental Pseudomonas keratitis. (+info)
Comparison of efficacies of oral levofloxacin and oral ciprofloxacin in a rabbit model of a staphylococcal abscess. (4/1459)Oral levofloxacin was compared to oral ciprofloxacin in a Staphylococcus aureus subcutaneous abscess model in rabbits. Rabbits were surgically prepared with subcutaneous wiffle balls (43 mm in diameter) and allowed to recover for 4 to 6 weeks. Rabbits were infected by direct injection into the capsule with S. aureus ATCC 29213 (5 x 10(5) CFU) and were allowed to remain infected for 8 days before the initiation of anti-infective treatment. Efficacy was determined by assessing the bacterial load within the capsule over a 10-day treatment period. In single-dose pharmacokinetic studies in infected rabbits, similar area under the concentration-time curve/MIC ratios were obtained in the plasma and abscess fluid for levofloxacin at 45 mg/kg of body weight and ciprofloxacin at 200 mg/kg of body weight. Similar efficacies were seen with levofloxacin at 45 mg/kg/day and ciprofloxacin 400 mg/kg/day by day 10. In this model, levofloxacin was significantly more efficacious than ciprofloxacin (P < 0.01).

Hyper-IgE syndrome with recurrent infections--an autosomal dominant multisystem disorder. (5/1459)BACKGROUND: The hyper-IgE syndrome with recurrent infections is a rare immunodeficiency characterized by recurrent skin and pulmonary abscesses and extremely elevated levels of IgE in serum. Associated facial and skeletal features have been recognized, but their frequency is unknown, and the genetic basis of the hyper-IgE syndrome is poorly understood. METHODS: We studied 30 patients with the hyper-IgE syndrome and 70 of their relatives. We took histories, reviewed records, performed physical and dental examinations, took anthropometric measurements, and conducted laboratory studies. RESULTS: Nonimmunologic features of the hyper-IgE syndrome were present in all patients older than eight years. Seventy-two percent had the previously unrecognized feature of failure or delay of shedding of the primary teeth owing to lack of root resorption. Common findings among patients were recurrent fractures (in 57 percent of patients), hyperextensible joints (in 68 percent), and scoliosis (in 76 percent of patients 16 years of age or older). The classic triad of abscesses, pneumonia, and an elevated IgE level was identified in 77 percent of all patients and in 85 percent of those older than eight. In 6 of 23 adults (26 percent), IgE levels declined over time and came closer to or fell within the normal range. Autosomal dominant transmission of the hyper-IgE syndrome was found, but with variable expressivity. Of the 27 relatives at risk for inheriting the hyper-IgE syndrome, 10 were fully affected, 11 were unaffected, and 6 had combinations of mild immunologic, dental, and skeletal features of the hyper-IgE syndrome. CONCLUSIONS: The hyper-IgE syndrome is a multisystem disorder that affects the dentition, the skeleton, connective tissue, and the immune system. It is inherited as a single-locus autosomal dominant trait with variable expressivity. (+info)
A murine model of renal abscess formation. (6/1459)We developed a murine model of kidney abscess by direct renal injection of either Escherichia coli (1 x 10(6) to 7 x 10(6) organisms) or sterile medium. Bacterial infection produced renal abscesses, bacteremia, and late-onset leukocytosis in all animals. Controls were unaffected. This model may be useful for the study of various sequelae of kidney infection. (+info)
Gallium-67 scintigraphy and intraabdominal sepsis. Clinical experience in 140 patients with suspected intraabdominal abscess. (7/1459)In 140 patients with suspected intraabdominal abscess, studies were made using gallium-67 citrate and technetium-99m labeled radiopharmaceuticals. Gallium-67 scintigrams correctly localized 52 of 56 intraabdominal abscesses confirmed at surgical operation or necropsy. In an additional 20 patients in whom findings on scintigrams were abnormal, there were clinically established infections. Sixty-one patients in whom findings on scintigrams were normal were conservatively managed and discharged from the hospital; none proved to have an abscess. Four false-negative and three false-positive studies were recorded. Gallium-67 scintigraphy is a useful noninvasive diagnostic adjunct that should be employed early in the evaluation of patients with suspected intraabdominal sepsis. (+info)
Spinal epidural abscess associated with epidural catheterization: report of a case and a review of the literature. (8/1459)We describe a 53-year-old man who developed a catheter-related epidural abscess 8 days after left upper lobectomy for lung cancer. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) was detected in a culture of the epidural pus. Magnetic resonance imaging was essential for the diagnosis of epidural abscess and for determining the extent of spread. The patient was treated by laminectomy and administration of appropriate antibiotics, with almost complete recovery, except for urinary retention. A literature search yielded 29 additional cases of catheter-related epidural abscess. The median duration of catheterization was 4 days and the median time to onset of the clinical symptoms after catheter placement was 8 days. Eleven of the 30 patients had some underlying disorders, including malignancy or herpes zoster, or were receiving steroids. Nine of the 10 patients with thoracic epidural abscess had persistent neurological deficits, whereas 12 of the 15 patients with lumbar epidural abscess showed a full recovery after treatment. Surgical decompression was not required in six patients without significant neurological deficits, who recovered following antibiotic treatment (four patients) or percutaneous drainage (two patients). Thoracic catheters are associated with a disproportionately high incidence of epidural abscess and persistent neurological sequelae following treatment. (+info)
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: Tubo-Ovarian Abscess - WellSpan Health Library
A pocket of pus that forms during an infection of a fallopian tube and ovary is called a tubo-ovarian abscess. Tubo-ovarian abscesses can develop in women who have pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).. A tubo-ovarian abscess is usually diagnosed by physical exam or pelvic ultrasound. Some abscesses are found by surgical exploration of the abdomen (laparoscopy or laparotomy).. These abscesses are usually treated with antibiotics. Very large abscesses or abscesses that do not go away after antibiotic treatment may have to be drained. Draining may be done by using a large needle. The needle is guided by ultrasound or by cutting into the abscess during laparoscopy or laparotomy. Sometimes the infected tube and ovary also have to be removed surgically.. ...
Head and Neck Abscesses Found in Dogs
Dogs can have abscesses show up on most any part of their body. Abscesses on their head and neck are just a few that dog owners can watch for. Retrobulbar and Submandibular abscesses are two of these head and neck abscesses.. Retrobulbar abscesses are abscesses that form behind the dogs eye. This abscess or pus filled lump is usually caused by the dog having an infection in its sinuses or in another area of the head such as its teeth, mouth or one of its eyes. Systemic infections can also be the cause of head and Neck Abscesses in dogs, but abscesses are not always caused by one of these infections but from a piece of foreign material migrating into the area.. When Retrubulbar abscesses occur, there is usually only one eye affected. The affected eye will bulge out due to the abscess that is behind it or there may be some swelling in the tissues that surround the affected eye. Other symptoms of Retrobulbar abscesses are the dogs third eyelid on the affected eye prolapsing partly over the ...
Pancreatic abscess - Wikipedia
Antibiotics are commonly used as a curing method for pancreatic abscesses although their role remains controversial. Prophylactic antibiotics are normally chosen based on the type of flora and the degree of antibiotic penetration into the abscess. Pancreatic abscesses are more likely to host enteric organisms and pathogens such as E. coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterococcus faecalis, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus mirabilis, and Streptococcus species. Medical therapy is usually given to people whose general health status does not allow surgery. On the other hand, antibiotics are not recommended in patients with pancreatitis, unless the presence of an infected abscess has been proved. Although there have been reported cases of patients who were given medical treatment and survived, primary drainage of the abscess is the main treatment used to cure this condition. Drainage usually involves a surgical procedure. It has been shown that CT-guided drainage brought inferior ...

Incision and Drainage Versus Needle Aspiration in Soft Tissue Abscesses - Tabular View - ClinicalTrials.gov
The incidence of skin and soft tissue infections has increased dramatically over the last decade, in part due to increased prevalence of community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA). Incision and drainage (I&D) is considered the primary intervention, however some clinicians prefer ultrasound guided needle aspiration (US Asp). The investigators performed a randomized trial comparing US Asp to I&D for uncomplicated skin and soft tissue abscesses, with a subgroup analysis of patients with CA-MRSA ...

Anorectal abscess - Wikipedia
Anorectal abscess (also known as an anal/rectal abscess, or perianal/perirectal abscess) is an abscess adjacent to the anus. It arises from an infection at one of the anal sinuses[clarification needed] which leads to inflammation and abscess formation. Most cases of perianal abscesses are sporadic, though there are certain situations which elevate the risk for developing the disease, such as diabetes mellitus, Crohns disease, chronic corticosteroid treatment and others. Ischiorectal, inter- and intrasphincteric abscesses have been described. There are four types of anorectal abscesses: perianal, ischiorectal, intersphincteric, and supralevator. Pain in the perianal area is the most common symptom of an anorectal abscess. The pain may be dull, aching, or throbbing. It is worst when the person sits down and right before a bowel movement. After the individual has a bowel movement, the pain usually lessens. Other signs and symptoms of anorectal abscess include constipation, drainage from the ...

Characterization of Pediatric Breast Abscesses and Optimal Treatment: by Charlene Dekonenko, Neal Shah et al.
BACKGROUND: Literature on pediatric breast abscesses is sparse; therefore, treatment is based on adult literature which has shifted from incision and drainage (I&D) to needle aspiration. However, children may require different treatment due to different risk factors and the presence of a developing breast bud. We sought to characterize pediatric breast abscesses and compare outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of patients presenting with a primary breast abscess from January 2008 to December 2018 was conducted. Primary outcome was persistent disease. Antibiotic utilization, treatment required, and risk factors for abscess and recurrence were also assessed. A follow-up survey regarding scarring, deformity, and further procedures was administered. Fishers exact and Kruskal-Wallis tests for group comparisons and multivariable regression to determine associations with recurrence were performed. RESULTS: Ninety-six patients were included. The median age was 12.8 y [IQR 4.9, 14.3], 81%
Homemade ultrasound phantom for teaching identification of superficial soft tissue abscess | Emergency Medicine Journal
Methods Increasing amounts of Jell-O (Northfield, Illinois, USA) brand gelatin and sugar-free Metamucil (Cincinnati, Ohio, USA) brand psyllium hydrophilic mucilloid fibre were experimented with until a satisfactory model was achieved. Various liquids were injected into it to simulate superficial abscess formation. The desired goal was for the phantom to appear similar to superficial human soft tissue under ultrasound scan and to be firm enough to withstand pressure from an ultrasound probe scan. The goal for the simulated abscess was to appear as a hypoechoic space under ultrasound scan. A Sonosite M-Turbo (Bothell, Washington, USA) bedside ultrasound machine with linear array transducer probe was used for the ultrasound scans. ...

Abscess | Lima Memorial Health System
An abscess is a collection of pus in any part of the body. In most cases, the area around an abscess is swollen and inflamed.. Abscesses occur when an area of tissue becomes infected and the bodys immune system tries to fight it. White blood cells (WBCs) move through the walls of the blood vessels into the area of the infection and collect in the damaged tissue. During this process, pus forms. Pus is the buildup of fluid, living and dead white blood cells, dead tissue, and bacteria or other foreign substances.. Abscesses can form in almost any part of the body. The skin, under the skin, and the teeth are the most common sites. Abscesses may be caused by bacteria, parasites, and foreign substances.. Abscesses in the skin are easy to see. They are red, raised, and painful. Abscesses in other areas of the body may not be seen, but they may cause organ damage.. Types and locations of abscesses include:. ...

Library - Kingston Mills Veterinary Hospital
Abscesses are firm or compressible, often painful swellings that contain pus. They can develop in many areas of the body including around tooth roots, anal glands, under the skin, or in the liver. Abscesses are caused by the introduction of bacteria through wounds, injuries, or bloodborne in the case of an internal organ abscess. Any area of the body that becomes infected can eventually cause an abscess to form such as anal gland abscess, bite wound abscess, prostatic abscess, or brain abscess from inner ear or sinus infection. Treatment depends on severity and location and usually involves removal of the pus either through drainage or surgical removal, the use of antibiotics based on the type of bacteria and location of the abscess, and pain control medications. Monitoring after initiating treatment includes watching the site for additional drainage if the abscess was superficial or monitoring the pet for improvement of clinical signs. Delayed treatment of abscesses can lead to chronic draining ...
Breast Abscess Drainage | B. C. Shah
Most abscesses are caused by a bacterial infection. The bacteria usually enter the breast through small cracks or breaks in the skin of the nipple, which can sometimes develop during breastfeeding.. Infections can also be caused by an overgrowth of bacteria that usually exist quite harmlessly within the milk ducts (the tiny tubes inside the breast that carry milk). An overgrowth of bacteria can occur if stagnant milk collects in a blocked milk duct.. When bacteria enter your body, your immune system (the bodys natural defence) tries to fight them off by sending white blood cells to the affected area. As the white blood cells attack the bacteria, some of the tissue at the site of the infection dies, creating a small, hollow pocket.. The pocket starts to fill with pus to form an abscess. The pus contains a mixture of dead tissue, white blood cells and bacteria. As the infection progresses, the abscess may get bigger and more painful as more pus is produced.. ...
Health Information | Almondsbury Surgery | Abscess
The main treatment is to drain away the pus from the abscess. For a skin abscess, this involves a small operation to cut the top of the skin and allow the pus to drain. A local anaesthetic will usually be used. A scar will form as the skin heals. If the abscess is deep, a small piece of gauze (antiseptic wick) may be put in the drainage hole. This stops the hole from sealing over before all of the pus has drained and the cavity has shrunk.. A more sophisticated operation is needed to drain an abscess from inside the body. The techniques vary, depending on the site of the abscess. Sometimes a tube will be left in the hole to drain the pus.. Medicines called antibiotics may also be prescribed, especially if there is infection in the skin (cellulitis). However, they are often not able to treat an abscess on their own. See separate leaflet called Cellulitis and Erysipelas for more details.. ...
Rabbit Abscesses » Galens Garden
Abscesses occur when an opportunist bacterial infection enters a sore, wound, around a foreign body or in occluded place such as a tooth or hair socket where matter can accumulate. Repeated occurrences are common in rabbits. Prognosis is varied depending on the site and whether bone has been affected. They can occur anywhere in the body and are particularly common in rabbits in the mouth or around the head.. To understand how awful abscesses can get in rabbits, see the Google Images page for Rabbit Abscess. (Graphic content). Abscesses on the skin may respond to Manuka Honey (see CNN article) but I would advise you to read the Abscess Management (PDF) article on the Medirabbit site for a fuller picture of when this might or might not be appropriate.. Dental or mandibular abscesses can occur when malocclusion and lack of calcium cause the tooth socket to distort in such a way that pockets are created where food collects and leads to infection. Bite wounds on both rabbits can apparently heal ...

Abscesses - Sled Dog Society of Wales
Abscesses may be very small or extraordinarily large, and may feel swollen and warm. These wounds are often extremely painful. Typically, dogs with abscesses become depressed, and may exhibit a tendency to hide in inconspicuous places in the home. Occasionally abscesses may rupture prior to the onset of any other signs. Abscesses of the anal glands are very common and can be mistaken for rectal bleeding if they rupture. They may cause the dog to scoot the rectal area on the ground. Tooth root abscesses typically form just below the eye, and start as a bump or swelling. They may break open and bleed, and the dog my stop eating due to the pain or experience upon chewing ...
Abscess | Providence Oregon
An abscess is sometimes called a boil. It happens when bacteria get trapped under the skin and start to grow. Pus forms inside the abscess as the body responds to the bacteria. An abscess can happen with an insect bite, ingrown hair, blocked oil gland, pimple, cyst, or puncture wound.. Your healthcare provider has drained the pus from your abscess. If the abscess pocket was large, your healthcare provider may have put in gauze packing. Your provider will need to remove it on your next visit. He or she may also replace it at that time. You may not need antibiotics to treat a simple abscess, unless the infection is spreading into the skin around the wound (cellulitis).. The wound will take about 1 to 2 weeks to heal, depending on the size of the abscess. Healthy tissue will grow from the bottom and sides of the opening until it seals over.. ...

The fistula may go internally, or it may go to the outside, sometimes (often) both ways. Cipro and flagyl are usually the antibiotics that are first prescribed for an abscess, abscesses in the rectum are the most difficult to treat (according to our GI). My son was on antibiotics for 3 months - for him they did next to nothing, inflammatory markers were still high, lots of pain, abscess did not go away and developed 3 fistulas. In hindsight I wish they would have drained his abscess, I *think* he may have been spared the fistulas, but who knows. My sons abscess took about 2 months until it started draining, but it was very painful for a long time ...
Abscess in my mouth
Hi, Ive got an abscess in my mouth. Im fairly certain that its a gum abscess and not a tooth abscess. But Ive got a problem: Its not hurting. But the situation is weird. See, I had a horrible pain in my mouth before the abscess appeared. Then when the abscess appeared in the same spot as the pain, the pain stopped. The abscess is red and flat-ish. Its obviously not completely flat, but you can only feel the bump when you touch it. Looking at it, you dont see anything. I can still feel it throbbing, and I guess you could kinda say it hurts, but its nothing I cant deal with. Its really easy to tolerate. Its not draining, either. Ive had some abscesses in the same spot before, but they were MUCH worse visibly than this one. I changed to a new toothpaste before it started hurting, could that be a reason? Im really worried that the nerves in my tooth might be dying and I might need a root canal or get it removed. I swear Im forgetting to put something in so you might be hearing from me ...

Symptoms of a Dental Abscess you Need to Pay Attention to | Lindale Dentist: The Center for Implant & General Dentistry
Medically, an abscess can develop almost anywhere. Abscesses are basically infected swellings which develop in areas where bacteria has been allowed to accumulate and grow. In the dental field, most of the time they occur as a result of infected teeth. They might also be caused by lacerations that happen in the inside of the mouth, but this is rare because of the antibacterial action of saliva, which makes sure any bacteria that might accumulate within these cuts and lesions are easily conquered. Dental Abcess Symptoms An abscess on the teeth is a serious condition, and the infection can very easily spread to other areas of the teeth. This is why it is important to deal with the situation as early as possible. Understanding the symptoms is the first step to doing that. The most obvious symptom here is pain. Presence of an abscess is enough indication that the infection has spread to surrounding tissue, which often results in swelling and pain. The pain, however, often comes during the later stages of

An anal abscess is an infected cavity filled with pus found near the anus or rectum.. An abscess results from an acute infection of a small gland just inside the anus, when bacteria or foreign matter enters the tissue through the gland. Certain conditions - colitis or other inflammation of the intestine, for example - can sometimes make these infections more likely.. An abscess is treated by making an opening in the skin near the anus to drain the pus from the infected cavity and thereby relieve the pressure. A large or deep abscess may require hospitalization and the assistance of an anesthesiologist. Hospitalization may also be necessary for patients prone to more serious infections, such as diabetics or people with decreased immunity. Antibiotics are a poor alternative to draining the pus, because antibiotics do not penetrate the fluid within an abscess.. ...

The Truth on Dental Abscesses | General Dentistry of Cape Cod, PC | Hyannis, MA
Your teeth have three layers: the enamel, dentin, and pulp. If your pulp-the soft center layer of your tooth-becomes infected, an abscess could form. This pocket of pus can appear at the root tip and on the gums. Typically, abscesses are caused by an untreated dental cavity or by inadequate dental care. If an abscess is not treated, serious complications could follow.. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to recognize an abscess, and there are several treatments your dentist can do for you.. If you notice any of the following symptoms, we recommend visiting your dentist soon:. ...
Abscess Incision and Drainage - procedure, blood, tube, pain, time, infection, cells, rate
I had went to my primary doctor to check on a swollen bump on my left butt cheek close to my anus. I was told i had a perirectal abscess and i was prescribed antibiotics on a friday. Not knowing anything about cause ive never been in this situation nor did i know how painful it was going to be i tried to tough it out until monday to get it checked out or maybe lanced. Unfortunately, the pain was so unbearable and the doctor gave me no pain medication i was forced to go to the ER. The doctor there gave me a shot of dilaudid and shot me with numbing medication all around the abscess (which is very very very painful by the way) and waited to cut it open. So the doctor comes and cuts it open (not that bad but still painful) then proceeds to drain the abscess. He pushes a few times and the pain starts getting worse and worse then he starts cutting deeper and it felt like i had no medication or numbing what so ever. I cant even describe how bad it hurt. I had told the doc to stop and he said we could ...
A Guide to Abscesses
Youll soon know about it if you get an abscess on your tooth. The pain can arrive very suddenly and rapidly gets worse. In most cases, the gum around the infected tooth will swell and become tender to the touch. The tooth itself will develop a throbbing ache. You may find your temperature rises and you feel feverish. In some cases, areas of the face can swell and become distorted and you can find it difficult to swallow.. If you think you have an abscess on your tooth, you need to visit your dentist as a matter of urgency. Theres no time for procrastination. To be quite honest, an abscess can be so painful that you probably will not need telling twice. However - just in case you do need any further incentive - if the infection is left unchecked then it can cause further complications. It can lead to issues such as sinusitis as the infection spreads across your face. In very rare cases, it has been known to cause a blood clot on the brain.. So, now you know the worst-case scenario. Lets see ...

Microbial synergy in experimental intra-abdominal abscess | Meta
Intra-abdominal sepsis was studied in Wistar rats by using four microbial species: Escherichia coli, enterococci, Bacteroides fragilis, and Fusobacterium varium. These organisms were implanted into the peritoneal cavity singly and in all possible dual combinations. Results were evaluated by mortality rates and the incidence of intra-abdominal abscesses on autopsy following sacrifice after 7 days. Mortality was restricted to recipients of E. coli, thus implicating coliforms in the acute lethality associated with this experimental model. Intra-abdominal abscesses were produced in 61 of 95 (94%) animals that received the combination of an anaerobe and a facultative organism. Abscesses failed to form with any single strain or with E. coli plus enterococci, and they were detected in one 1 of 19 animals receiving B. fragilis plus F. varium. These results suggest that intra-abdominal abscess formation is related to synergy between anaerobes and facultative bacteria. ...

Abscesses in Dogs - Veterinarians in Oviedo, Florida | Tuscawilla Oaks Animal Hospital
The simple description of an abscess is a pocket of pus located somewhere in the body. Abscesses are typically described anatomically by where they are located - for instance, a tooth root abscess occurs at the tip of a tooth root, and a subcutaneous abscess occurs under the skin. Typically, an abscess appears suddenly as a painful swelling (if it is not located inside a body cavity or deep within tissue) that may be either firm to the touch, or fluctuant like a water balloon. The abscess may be large or small, will often cause redness if it is under the skin, and may cause local tissue destruction. Some abscesses will rupture and drain foul-smelling material.. A dog with an abscess will often have a fever, even if the abscess has ruptured and drained to the outside of the body. Should the abscess be located inside the body - in the liver, for instance - fever would be expected, and there may be the additional complication of a disseminated internal infection - that is, bacteria in the ...
Expression of Angiogenic and Growth Factors in Pediatric Subperiosteal Orbital Abscesses | IOVS | ARVO Journals
Purpose: : Angiogenic and growth factors have an important role in directing inflammation and wound healing. At the present time there is limited knowledge of their respective roles in the evolution of pediatric orbital abscesses. Our study aims to characterize the growth and angiogenic factors present within pediatric subperiosteal orbital abscess fluid collections. Methods: : All pediatric cases of subperiosteal orbital abscess drainage performed at a single institution from July 2005 through May 2006 were included in this prospective laboratory study. An external approach was used to drain each fluid collection. In addition to submitting the abscess fluid for routine microbiological analysis, a portion of the abscess fluid was sampled in a sterile fashion and retained for characterization using a cytokine protein membrane array (RayBio Human Cytokine Arrays VI and VII, RayBiotech, Inc., Norcross, GA.) Chemiluminescence was employed to assess for the presence of specific proteins, and those ...

Objective: Cold abscesses, although common in spinal tuberculosis, are usually localized to the level of infection, follow tissue planes, and may extend into the spinal canal at any level. They may cause symptoms resulting from neurovascular compression, hemorrhage, and direct mass effect. Design and patients: We present an unusual case of cervical tuberculous spondylodiscitis in a 25-year old man with a cold abscesses involving the retropharyngeal, mediastinal, and retroperitoneal areas bilaterally. The abscess tracked from the neck to the psoas muscles bilaterally. Following the diagnosis the patient received 9 months of antituberculous therapy. Results: MRI showed resolution on medical treatment alone. Conclusions: Even in the presence of massive paravertebral cold abscesses medical treatment alone may well suffice for this common worldwide disorder. MRI is ideal for monitoring regression of massive abscesses in deep anatomical locations. ...

Review of 10 Cases of Pyogenic Epidural Abscess of the Spine
Spinal epidural abscess is a rare disorder with poor prognosis. In order to understand its clinical feature and method of treatment, a retrospective study of spinal epidural abscess spanning 8 years and encompassing 10 patients was done. There were 6 males and 4 females aged 12 to 64 years with peak incidence at the sixth decade. In one patient, epidural abscess recurred at the site previously treated 10 years ago. In addition to fever and leukocytosis in 8 patients, other frequent symptoms according to lesion site were abdominal pain and motor weakness in thoracic epidural abscess and low back pain and sciatica in lumbar epidural abscess. Staphylococcus aureus was the most common causative organism. Magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) showed variable signal on T1-weighted images and hyperintensity on T2-weighted images, which was studied in 6 patients. Two patterns in gadolinium-enhanced MRI were a central focus of low signal intensity surrounded by ring enhancement(2 patients) gadolinium-enhanced ...
Prevalence and recurrence rate of perianal abscess -a population-based study, Sweden 1997-2009
INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to assess the impact of diabetes mellitus, Crohns disease, HIV/aids, and obesity on the prevalence and readmission rate of perianal abscess.. METHODS: The study cohort was based on the Swedish National Patient Register and included all patients treated for perianal abscess in Sweden 1997-2009. The prevalence and risk for readmission were assessed in association with four comorbidity diagnoses: diabetes mellitus, Crohns disease, HIV, and/or AIDS and obesity.. RESULTS: A total of 18,877 patients were admitted during the study period including 11,138 men and 4557 women (2.4:1). Crohns disease, diabetes, and obesity were associated with a significantly higher prevalence of perianal abscess than an age- and gender-matched background population (p , 0.05). In univariate analysis, neither age nor gender had any significant impact on the risk for readmission. In a multivariate Cox proportional hazard analysis, Crohns disease was the only significant risk factor ...

Surgical and survival outcomes of lung cancer patients with intratumoral lung abscesses | Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery |...
Intratumoral lung abscess is considered a fatal condition and surgical procedures for intratumoral lung abscesses have sometimes been performed. Our retrospective study demonstrates that surgical procedures for advanced-stage NSCLC patients with intratumoral lung abscesses led to satisfactory post-operative mortality rates (0.0%) and acceptable prognoses, although the post-operative morbidity rate was a little high. No pre-operative, intra-operative, or post-operative prognostic factors were identified in our univariate analyses.. Davis et al.  reported intratumoral lung abscesses to be secondary lung abscesses and, although rare, they are potentially refractory and serious. Ishida et al.  reported cases of intratumoral lung abscesses after bronchoscopy and this was considered the main reason for the development of intratumoral lung abscesses. In the present study, 8 intratumoral lung abscesses were detected after bronchoscopic biopsy. Other reasons included bronchial obstruction due to ...

Aquacel Versus Iodoform Gauze for Filling Abscess Cavity Following Incision and Drainage - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
The large increase in the incidence of skin and soft tissue infections cause by methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has produced a corresponding increase in the number of ED patients presenting with abscesses that require incision and drainage. This study compares Aquacel against routine Iodoform packing for packing abscess cavities after incision and drainage. It is hypothesized that Aquacel will produce speedier healing of the abscess. More effective abscess healing will reduce the need for oral antibiotic coverage, which will in turn reduce the potential for drug resistance caused by indiscriminate use of oral antibiotics ...

Vesalius Clinical Folios: Pelvic Abscess Following Appendectomy
A 42-year-old woman underwent laparoscopic appendectomy. She was found to have a gangrenous appendix. She was treated with a 7d course of antibiotics postoperatively. At the end of the 7 days, she was afebrile with a normal white count and was discharged to home. Three days later she represented with fever and leukocytosis. A pelvic mass was felt on rectovaginal examination and a well-developed pelvic abscess (see appendicitis discussion) was seen on CT scan. The inflammatory rind is well defined (highlight). The abscess was drained transvaginally with ultrasound guidance and a pigtail catheter was left in place for four days, at which time the drainage was minimal. Repeat CT scan at that time showed the cavity to be collapsed. The patient was afebrile with a normal WBC count when discharged. The patient was asymptomatic on follow-up.

Pituitary abscess: two case reports | Journal of Medical Case Reports | Full Text
Pituitary abscess is a rare condition with nonspecific symptoms that can be delayed. Proper diagnosis needs to occur preoperatively so that the management can be set up accordingly. Accurate diagnosis is challenging because many differential diagnoses can exhibit the same magnetic resonance imaging features. We report two cases of pituitary abscess. The first patient was a 66-year-old Arab woman who underwent a surgical procedure for a pituitary macroadenoma and presented 3 months later with chronic headaches and panhypopituitarism. A pituitary abscess was found on the follow-up magnetic resonance imaging. The second patient was a 64-year-old Arab man with no medical history who presented with a chiasmal syndrome with headaches and panhypopituitarism. Brain magnetic resonance imaging showed a heterogeneous pituitary mass that turned out to be a pituitary abscess intraoperatively. These two patients were treated with hormone substitution, endoscopic transsphenoidal drainage, and antibiotherapy, with
Primary localized amyloidoma of abdominal wall presenting as abscess: Rare case | OGH Reports
Abstract:. The deposition of amyloid as a distinct, clinically apparent mass is uncommon particularly in the soft tissues. There have been no previously published case reports of abdominal wall involvement; thereby we are describing a case of AA amyloidoma which presented as an abdominal wall abscess without any evidence of systemic disease. The clinical and radiological findings suggested soft tissue abscess likely cysticercosis or a neoplastic process. This case demonstrates the importance of considering the possibility of amyloidoma in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue lesions.. ...

Abscess - Infogalactic: the planetary knowledge core
An abscess (Latin: abscessus) is a collection of pus that has built up within the tissue of the body. Signs and symptoms of abscesses include redness, pain, warmth, and swelling. The swelling may feel fluid filled when pressed. The area of redness often extends beyond the swelling. Carbuncles and boils are types of abscess that often involve hair follicles with carbuncles being larger.. They are usually caused by a bacterial infection. Often many different types of bacteria are involved in a single infection. In the United States and many other areas of the world the most common bacteria present is methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Rarely parasites can cause abscesses and this is more common in the developing world. Diagnosis of a skin abscess is usually made based on what it looks like and is confirmed by cutting it open. Ultrasound imaging may be useful in cases in which the diagnosis is not clear. In abscesses around the anus, computer tomography ...

Lung Abscess at 40x Magnification | MicroscopyU
Since the symptoms of a lung abscess are similar to pneumonia and other lung disorders, testing must be carried out to produce a definitive diagnosis. Most abscesses can be identified in a chest x-ray, though sometimes computed tomography (CT) scans are necessary. CT scans can also sometimes provide information regarding the cause of the condition. In other cases, sputum smears and cultures can be helpful in determining the cause of an abscess. However, because of the microorganisms that are normally present in the mouth and throat, expectorated sputum is not useful for analyses, so that samples must be obtained via specialized techniques. As a result, some sputum tests are often not carried out unless traditional abscess treatments are ineffective.

Lung Abscess Remains a Life-Threatening Condition in Pediatrics - A Case Report | The Journal of Critical Care Medicine
Pulmonary abscess or lung abscess is a lung infection which destroys the lung parenchyma leading to cavitations and central necrosis in localised areas formed by thick-walled purulent material. It can be primary or secondary. Lung abscesses can occur at any age, but it seems that paediatric pulmonary abscess morbidity is lower than in adults. We present the case of a one year and 5-month-old male child admitted to our clinic for fever, loss of appetite and an overall altered general status. Laboratory tests revealed elevated inflammatory biomarkers, leukocytosis with neutrophilia, anaemia, thrombocytosis, low serum iron concentration and increased lactate dehydrogenase level. Despite wide-spectrum antibiotic therapy, the patients progress remained poor after seven days of treatment and a CT scan established the diagnosis of a large lung abscess. Despite changing the antibiotic therapy, surgical intervention was eventually needed. There was a slow but steady improvement and eventually, the ...
DSpace at EWHA: Clinical spectrum of intra-abdominal abscesses in patients admitted to the emergency department
Background: The mortality of undrained abdominal abscesses may be as high as 35 %. In this study, we analyzed the clinical spectrum of intra-abdominal abscess (IAA) patients in the ED and attempted to identify factors that can predict the severity of IAA. Method: This study was a retrospective review of adults (≥ 18 years) with IAA admitted to a single ED. IAA were diagnosed by abdominal computed tomography. The differences in clinical variables between patients receiving and not receiving inotropic drugs were analyzed. Multiple logistic regression was performed for assessing predictor variables. Results: 128 patients presented with IAA. The most common complaint was abdominal pain (60.2 %) and the liver was most common location (39.8 %). Patients who required inotropic drugs had lower serum leukocyte, lymphocyte, and platelet counts and higher serum BUN and CRP levels. The independent factors associated with need for inotropic drugs were serum leukocyte, CRP, and BUN level. The optimal cutoff ...
