Actinomyces and nocardia infections in immunocompromised and nonimmunocompromised patients. (1/212)

A retrospective survey of nocardia and actinomyces infections in five local hospitals was conducted over a 3-year period in El Paso, Texas, a border city, in the southwestern United States. The medical records of 42 patients with suspected nocardiosis or actinomycosis were reviewed. One patient was diagnosed with actinomyces and 12 patients with nocardia. Microbiological data included morphologic characteristics, biochemical profile, and susceptibility testing. Predisposing factors included leukemia, renal insufficiency, renal transplant, and lymphoma. No predisposing factors were found in 67% (n = 8) of patients (including the patient with actinomycosis). Twenty-three percent (n = 3) of patients had disseminated disease without evidence of underlying disease or immunosuppression. The mortality and morbidity of these infections appeared to be low.  (+info)

Pathogenesis of cancrum oris (noma): confounding interactions of malnutrition with infection. (2/212)

This study showed that impoverished Nigerian children at risk for cancrum oris (noma) had significantly reduced plasma concentrations of zinc (< 10.8 micromol/L), retinol (< 1.05 micromol/L), ascorbate (< 11 micromol/L), and the essential amino acids, with prominently increased plasma and saliva levels of free cortisol, compared with their healthy counterparts. The nutrient deficiencies, in concert with previously reported widespread viral infections (measles, herpesviruses) in the children, would impair oral mucosal immunity. We postulate, subject to additional studies, that evolution of the oral mucosal ulcers including acute necrotizing gingivitis to noma is triggered by a consortium of microorganisms of which Fusobacterium necrophorum is a key component. Fusobacterium necrophorum elaborates several dermonecrotic toxic metabolites and is acquired by the impoverished children via fecal contamination resulting from shared residential facilities with animals and very poor environmental sanitation.  (+info)

Childhood actinomycosis. Report of 3 recent cases. (3/212)

Three cases of childhood actinomycosis are reported, 2 with the commonest presentation of cervicofacial abscess and the third with a rarely reported superficial chest wall abscess. The importance of prompt bacteriological diagnosis and adequate treatment with surgical drainage and chemotherapy is stressed. Though in adults males are affected more frequently than females, the sexes are probably equally affected in childhood.  (+info)

Endobronchial actinomycosis simulating endobronchial tuberculosis: a case report. (4/212)

We report a case of a 70-year-old woman who presented with mild exertional dyspnea and cough. Fiberoptic bronchoscopic findings revealed an endobronchial polypoid lesion with stenotic bronchus. The lesion was very similar to endobronchial tuberculosis. Histologic examination of the biopsy specimen demonstrated Actinomyces infection. There was a clinical response to intravenous penicillin therapy. Primary endobronchial actinomycosis must be considered in the differential diagnosis of an endobronchial lesion, especially endobronchial tuberculosis in Korea.  (+info)

Actinomyces bowdenii sp. nov., isolated from canine and feline clinical specimens. (5/212)

Four strains of a previously undescribed Actinomyces-like bacterium were isolated from canine and feline clinical specimens. Phenotypic studies indicated the strains were members of the genus Actinomyces, and most closely resembled Actinomyces viscosus serotype I and Actinomyces slackii. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing studies demonstrated the unknown bacterium constitutes a new subline within a group of Actinomyces species, which includes Actinomyces bovis, the type species of the genus. Based on phylogenetic and phenotypic evidence it is proposed that the unknown bacterium be classified as Actinomyces bowdenii sp. nov. The type strain of Actinomyces bowdenii is CCUG 37421T.  (+info)

Infection of a hip prosthesis by Actinomyces naeslundii. (6/212)

We present the case of a 77-year-old woman who developed an Actinomyces naeslundii infection of a hip prosthesis. The isolate grew well aerobically with 5% CO(2). Possible diagnostic problems may arise in the microbiological laboratory because aerobic growth is not sufficiently accounted for in some of the traditional identification schemes and commercial test kits. Therefore, besides presenting an unusual pathogen in this setting, this report focuses on possible diagnostic problems in the microbiological laboratory.  (+info)

Molecular and genetic analyses of Actinomyces spp. (7/212)

Members of the genus Actinomyces are predominant primary colonizers of the oral cavity and play an important role in initiating plaque development. These bacteria have evolved unique mechanisms that favor colonization and persistence in this micro-environment. The expression of cell-surface fimbriae is correlated with the ability of these bacteria to adhere to specific receptors on the tooth and mucosal surfaces, and to interact with other plaque bacteria. The elaboration of sialidase is thought to enhance fimbriae-mediated adherence by unmasking the fimbrial receptors on mammalian cells. The presence of certain cell-associated or extracellular enzymes, including those involved in sucrose or urea metabolism, may provide the means for these bacteria to thrive under conditions when other growth nutrients are not available. Moreover, these enzyme activities may influence the distribution of other plaque bacteria and promote selection for Actinomyces spp. in certain ecological niches. The recent development of a genetic transfer system for Actinomyces spp. has allowed for studies the results of which demonstrate the existence of multiple genes involved in fimbriae synthesis and function, and facilitated the construction of allelic replacement mutants at each gene locus. Analyses of these mutants have revealed a direct correlation between the synthesis of assembled fimbriae and the observed adherence properties. Further genetic analysis of the various enzyme activities detected from strains of Actinomyces should allow for an assessment of the role of these components in microbial ecology, and their contribution to the overall success of Actinomyces spp. as a primary colonizer and a key player in oral health and disease.  (+info)

Actinomyces canis sp. nov., isolated from dogs. (8/212)

Three strains of a previously undescribed catalase-positive Actinomyces-like bacterium were isolated from dogs. Biochemical testing and PAGE analysis of whole-cell proteins indicated that the strains were phenotypically highly related to each other but different from previously described Actinomyces and Arcanobacterium species. Sequencing of 16S rRNA showed that the unknown bacterium represents a new subline within a cluster of species which includes Actinomyces hyovaginalis, Actinomyces georgiae, Actinomyces meyeri, Actinomyces odontolyticus, Actinomyces radingae and Actinomyces turicensis. On the basis of phenotypic evidence and 16S rRNA sequence divergence levels (greater than 5% with recognized Actinomyces species) it is proposed that the unknown strains from canine sources be classified as a new species with the name Actinomyces canis sp. nov. The type strain of Actinomyces canis is CCUG 41706T (= CIP 106351T).  (+info)

Actinomycosis is a rare infectious bacterial disease caused by Actinomyces species. About 70% of infections are due to either Actinomyces israelii or A. gerencseriae. Infection can also be caused by other Actinomyces species, as well as Propionibacterium propionicus, which presents similar symptoms. The condition is likely to be polymicrobial aerobic anaerobic infection. The disease is characterised by the formation of painful abscesses in the mouth, lungs, breast, or gastrointestinal tract. Actinomycosis abscesses grow larger as the disease progresses, often over months. In severe cases, they may penetrate the surrounding bone and muscle to the skin, where they break open and leak large amounts of pus, which often contains characteristic granules (sulfur granules) filled with progeny bacteria. These granules are named due to their appearance, but are not actually composed of sulfur. Actinomycosis is primarily caused by any of several members of the bacterial genus Actinomyces. These bacteria ...
Pulmonary actinomycosis is usually secondary to aspiration; less commonly it is secondary to hematogenous dissemination. Pneumonia develops, and it tends to invade the pleura, resulting in empyema necessitatis, and fistula draining through the chest wall. With empyema formation, erosion of adjacent ribs frequently results. Actinomycosis of the lung and pleura become more complicated when the mediastinum, pericardium, thoracic vertebrae, or subphrenic spaces become infected.. Actinomycosis of the gastrointestinal tract most commonly develops in the ileocecal region, but the infection can also arise in the gastric or anorectal areas. Patients with the disease often show a previous history of appendicitis. Actinomycotic infection of the bone is usually a result of an adjacent soft tissue infection (75 percent), but may be associated with trauma (e.g. fracture of the mandible (19 percent), or it may be hematogenous 3 percent) Infection involving the facial bones, especially the mandible, represents ...

Actinomycosis involving the extremities is although rare but has been reported in literature. Bose et al treated synovial actinomycosis of knee in a 32 year old woman with penicillin.2 Kumar et al reported actinomycosis of knee which was mimicking neoplasm but on surgical removal histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis.3 Vandevelde et al have also reported actinomycosis of lower leg in a young man for which below knee amputation was done.4 Earlier, we have also reported a case of actinomycosis of knee for which above knee amputation was performed.5 Only few cases from an infection in hand have been reported in the literature.6,7 Actinomycosis has been called "the most misdiagnosed disease" and its entity remained a diagnostic challenge even to most experienced clinicians. Its chronic and indolent course resembles that of fungal infection, tuberculosis and malignancy and delays early diagnosis as happened in our case..

Most cases of pelvic actinomycosis have been recorded in women who were using an intrauterine device (IUD) form of contraception.. An IUD is a small, T-shaped contraceptive device made from plastic and copper that fits inside the womb. The women affected by the condition tend to be long-term users of an IUD (eight years or more).. One explanation for cases of pelvic actinomycosis in women who are using an IUD is that, over time, it may damage the womb lining, allowing bacteria to penetrate deep tissue. However, no research has been carried out to find out whether or not this is the case.. Its important to note that its very rare to develop pelvic actinomycosis as a result of using an IUD. For example, in England, millions of women use the device and there have only been a handful of reported cases of pelvic actinomycosis. It only tends to occur if an IUD is left in place longer than the manufacturer recommends.. ...
Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Oral bacterium, Actinomyces viscosus. Actinomyces viscosus is a Gram-positive, anaerobic, filamentous bacterium that is part of the human oral flora. This rod shaped filamentous bacteria occur around the teeth, gums and throat in healthy humans. Species of this bacterium can cause actinomycosis, a granulomatous infection with the formation of abscesses in the mouth, lungs, or the gastrointestinal tract. Oral actinomycosis may occur due to trauma such as a tooth extraction or bleeding gums. Abdominal actinomycosis may follow appendicitis. Treatment is with antibiotics. Actinomyces sp. normally are soil or aquatic fungi feeding off decaying matter (saprophytes). They resemble fungi and form fungi-like mats (mycelia).

The etiology of Actinomyces infection is probably related to local mucosal trauma, or dental manipulation. In infection, the organism can function as a facultative intracellular parasite which spreads into adjacent soft tissues without regard for tissue planes or lymphatic drainage. Actinomycosis seldom involves lymph nodes.
Pathogenicity - causes the disease actinomycosis. In man it is usually caused by A. israelli. They are commensals of mouth, therefore endogenous cause of disease. The disease is a chronic granulomatous infection occuring in human beings and animals. It is characterized by the development of indurated swellings, in the connective tissue, suppuration and the discharge of sulfur granules. Actinomycosis in human beings is an endogenous infection. The actinomyces species are normally present in the mouth, intestine, vagina as commensals. Actinomycosis in human beings occurs in 4 forms : (a) Cervicofacial - indurated lesions on the cheek and submaxillary regions. (b) Thoracic - lesions in the lung involving pleura and pericardium and spread outwards through the chest wall. (c) Abdominal - lesion around the cecum, neighbouring tissues and the abdominal wall, sometimes spread to the liver.

Actinomycosis is a chronic bacterial infection that commonly affects the face and neck. It is usually caused by an anaerobic bacteria called Actinomyces israelii. Actinomyces are normal inhabitants of the mouth, gastrointestinal tract, and female genital tract, and do not cause an infection unless there is a break in the skin or mucosa. The infection usually occurs in the face and neck, but can sometimes occur in the chest, abdomen, pelvis, or other areas of the body. The infection is not contagious ...
Botryomycosis; also known as bacterial pseudomycosis is a rare chronic granulomatous bacterial infection that affects the skin, and sometimes the viscera. Botryomycosis has been known to affect humans, horses, cattle, swine, dogs and cats. There are only a handful of documented cases of botryomycosis in humans, and its pathogenesis is not completely understood. However, it is usually described in individuals with impaired immunity, or with an underlying disease such as diabetes mellitus, cystic fibrosis or HIV infection. Staphylococcus aureus is usually the organism that causes the infection, however it can also be caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa or several other species of bacteria. The anatomic structure of its lesion is similar to that of actinomycosis and eumycetoma, and its granules resemble the sulfur granules of actinomycosis. The disease was originally discovered by Otto Bollinger (1843-1909) in 1870, and its name was coined by Sebastiano Rivolta (1832-1893) in 1884. The name refers to ...
INTRODUCTION. Although many of the strains of Actinomyces are highly sensitive in vitro to many antimicrobial agents, the disease caused in human beings by these microörganisms continues to present difficult therapeutic problems. The distinctive character of the tissue reaction offers a logical explanation for some of these problems. The involved areas are usually extensive, markedly indurated, and relatively avascular in the region of the active growth of the Actinomyces. These features suggest serious difficulty in getting a bactericidal concentration of the effective drug into areas of active infection, and raise serious doubts concerning the possibility of restoring the involved tissues ...
The dogs abscesses will be drained and lavaged for several days. In some cases, a penrose drain will be utilized, whereby a soft rubber tube is placed in the affected area to prevent fluid buildup. Depending on the severity of the infection, your veterinarian may also need to debride (cut open and/or remove tissue) or remove bone, which will require surgery.. Many veterinarians recommend the administration of antibiotics for a minimum of three to four months after the resolution of all signs. This will assist in fighting against other commonly associated microbes.. ...

Neurology news, research and treatment studies for epilepsy, neurodegenerative disorders, patients with MS and other brain and central nervous system disorders and diseases.
The most common physical finding of actinomycosis is a woody, hard, palpable mass with a subacute clinical course. About half of the patients present with a low-grade fever (1). The lack of responsiveness to empirical antibiotic therapy, the presentation of a chronic palpable mass, and the difficulty in establishing the microbiologic diagnosis make it difficult to differentiate this mass from a neoplasm, granulomatous disease, or a fungal infection on the basis of the initial presentation (1, 4).. Actinomyces species are anaerobic bacteria that cannot penetrate healthy tissue, and mucosal breakdown is a prerequisite for infection. About half of the patients have a history of local trauma resulting in mucosal breakdown (1). Poor dental hygiene, caries, oral trauma, dental extraction, and an immunocompromised status are considered to be important antecedents (1, 4). Determining if a patient has a history of these risk factors may be helpful in establishing a correct diagnosis. In cervicofacial ...

262 PATHOGENIC BACTERIA. lungs. Israel has pointed out certain cases of human actinomycosis beginning in the peribronchial tissues, probably from inhalation of the fungi. The occurrence of three distinct elements as compo- nents of the rays served to class this organism among the pleomorphous bacteria in the genus Cladothrix, where it has remained undisturbed for at least a decade. Recent researches have, however, changed the view held by some bacteriologists in regard to the actinomyces, and caused them to regard the organism as a bacillus. If it be a bacillus, the central zone of granular cocci-like elements is to be regarded as consisting of individuals in process of rapid division and spore(?)-formation, the mycelial zone as consisting of perfect individuals, and the peripheral zone, with the rosette-like, club-shaped elements, as consisting of individuals partly degener- ated through the activity of the cells and tissue-juices (involution-forms).

The authors describe the case of a young man, who was admitted do the thoracic surgery department with a mediastinal tumour and an induration of the base of the neck. Initial diagnostic tests gave the wrong diagnosis of actinomycosis. A lack of progress in the therapy and the occurrence of a life-threatening condition led to the implementation of more aggressive diagnostic methods. In biopsies taken during thoracotomy, the patient was finally diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma of nodular sclerosis type. Conclusions: Mediastinal tumours may cause diagnostic difficulties and, to avoid mistakes, typical histological studies should be complemented by targeted immunohistochemical tests. ...

In this report, a posttraumatic scar with unusual behavior is discussed. How was actinomycosis diagnosed and ultimately treated in this case?
BACKGROUND: In the female genital tract, up to 30% of Papanicolaou (Pap)-stained cervicovaginal smears of intrauterine device (IUD) users are positive for actinomyces-like organisms (ALOs). Many clinicians believe that no therapeutic intervention is necessary if women with ALOs are without symptoms. However, there are no recommendations for the procedure in ALO-positive women with need for a routine IUD exchange. STUDY DESIGN: In this retrospective study, the incidence of ALOs was compared in ALO-positive women with a routine IUD exchange according to two new procedures: Group 1 (n=19), insertion of a new IUD immediately after removal of the index device, and Group 2 (n=19) IUD removal and reinsertion after 3-5 days. A Pap smear was obtained at intervals of 6 weeks and 12, 24 and 36 months after reinsertion. RESULTS: The cytological examination carried out after 6 weeks proved to be negative for ALOs in all cases. After 36 months, smears were more often positive for ALOs in women with immediate ...

The symptoms of actinomycosis can vary depending on the type. Symptoms of oral cervicofacial actinomycosis include swollen lumps on the face or neck.
We describe two immunosuppressed female patients with fever and Actinomyces odontolyticus bacteremia, a combination documented once previously in an immunocompetent male patient. The patients were treated with doxycycline and clindamycin; these drugs, with β-lactams, are effective treatment for A. odontolyticus infections. Further instances of bacteremia may be expected in immunosuppressed patients.

Results: 16 of the 32 teeth were infected with one or more Actinomyces species. The prevalence rates of the examined species were: A. odontolyticus 31.3%, A. meyeri 9.4%, A. naeslundii 9.4%, A. israelii 6.3% and A. gerencseriae 3.1%; no A. bovis was detected in any of the canals. Furthermore, A. odontolyticus was isolated more frequently from root canals with caries or a history of caries (Fishers exact test: P=0.0496; Odds ratio=9.00, 95% confidence interval: 0.97-83.63), and A. naeslundii was significantly associated with traumatized teeth (Fishers exact test: P=0.0121; Odds ratio=57.00, 95% confidence interval: 2.10-1546.90). However, no significant correlation was found between Actinomyces spp. and clinical symptoms and signs, such as pain, swelling, percussion to tenderness, sinus and periapical radiolucency ...
Objective: To explore the feasibility of identifying potential radiometric differences in periapical radiolucencies with and without actinomycotic colonization as seen on periapical radiographs using histopathology for ground truth. Method and Materials: Periapical radiographs demonstrating apical lesions with and without biopsy-proven actinomycosis were included in the study. Lesion sizes were estimated on standardized images using anatomical reference points. The reading session was repeated after 2 weeks, and mean lesion sizes were calculated. All measurements were made by a single, calibrated observer. Results: The mean dimension of lesions with actinomyces was 13.51 16.43 mm, while lesions without actinomyces had a mean size of 10.24 11.27 mm. Conclusion: Apical lesions with biopsy-proven actinomyces may be larger in dimension than those without bacterial colonization. Further controlled studies are required to confirm this finding. Keywords: actinomyces, histology, intraoral, periapical, ...

The finding of granulomas in an endometrial biopsy can be caused by a variety of diseases. In a recent review granulomas were identified in 0.15% of endometrial biopsies.20 Focal granulomas, that is the finding of a single granulomatous focus, were significantly associated with a prior history of cesarean section or dilatation and curettage, and none of the women had any signs of a systemic disorder or infection upon follow-up. In terms of infection, granulomas can be caused by tuberculosis (as described previously), atypical mycobacteria, endemic mycosis, actinomycosis, and parasites.20,21 Noninfectious causes can include a reaction to foreign material, Crohn disease, sarcoidosis, or lymphoma. Granulomas can also be seen postsurgically. Sarcoidosis is associated with well-formed, clearly demarcated epithelioid cell granulomas lacking central necrosis. It occurs usually, but not always, in women with known systemic disease. However, as necrosis is unusual in tuberculous endometritis, endometrial ...

Introduction: Intrauterine contraceptive devices generally carry a low risk of complications. Infection, possibly due to damage caused upon insertion, can occur and actinomycetaceae are the most likely cause of pelvic actinomycosis. Case Report: A 41-year-old female presented with a two-month history of raised temperature, weight loss and abdominal tenderness. Contrast tomography imaging indicated pyometria and pelvic actinomycosis-like abscess linked to intrauterine contraceptive device use. Full microbiological reporting, including anaerobic cultures and 16S PCR, identified the bacterium Propionibacterium propionicum. A six-month course of amoxicillin resolved the infection and the patient made a full recovery. Conclusion: Increased IUCD-related actinomycosis awareness and improved diagnostics may increase detection of P. propionicum, a pathogen rarely reported on to date.
Chronic suppurative lacrimal canaliculitis is an important cause of ocular surface discomfort. Being a relatively rare condition, it is commonly overlooked and undiagnosed for long periods of time. Actinomyces israelii is classically cited as the most common causative organism of canaliculitis,1 at the same time, isolation is difficult owing to the anaerobic nature of the pathogen. Herein we present a case of chronic lacrimal canaliculitis successfully managed with the therapeutic triad of surgery, systemic antibiotics, and topical eye drops to increase awareness for this treatable condition.. A 75-year-old male, retired personnel, presented with complaints of swelling at medial canthus of the left eye of one-year duration associated with pain, ocular discharge, redness, and watering. Prior to his visit at our hospital, he had consulted another hospital and received certain medications for his symptoms, but without relief. He was a known diabetic since 10 years, on oral glucose lowering agents ...
Breasts are important as they act as accessory sex organs to the female reproductive system. Just as the other body parts go through diseases breasts also are infected with various kinds of diseases. Breast disease cause cysts, infections,lesions and lumps. These diseases can be painful as well as without pain in many cases. Some of these diseases can be benign and others can be malignant. Most of the comman breast diseases and infections are Baterial Mastitis, Fibrocystic Breast Disease, Chronic Subareolar Abscess, Tuberculosis of the breast, Actinomycosis of the breast and breast engorgement. The breast gives out various symptoms if it has been going through some disease. The symptoms can be lumps in the breast region, inversion of the nipple, breast skin change and secretion from the breast. Nowadays many women are heavily being affected by breast cancer due to the lifestyle they are leading. Major causes of breast cancer includes smoking, drinking alchohol, usage of oral contraceptive pills. ...

When a species has many synoniems (16 in this case), one cannot help but wonder what that means. There may be a couple of reasons for the plethora of names, but in this case the most likely one is the species being so highly variable. Understandably, this makes it often difficult to positively identify it. The situation is further complicated by the fact that the species often grows together with C. bilobum and hybridizes with it, resulting in swarms of plants with intermediate characters.. The plants form small or large cushions (up to 30 cm in diameter), which may be straggly or neatly domed ...
Structure:. The adenoid has pseudostratified epithelium. The adenoid is often removed along with the palatine tonsils.. Development:. Adenoids develop from a subepithelial infiltration of lymphocytes after the 16th week of embryonic life.. They are part of Waldeyer Ring of Lymphnoid tissue which includes the palatine tonsils and the lingual tonsils.. After birth, enlargement begins and continues until aged 5 to 7 years. Symptomatic enlargement between 18-24 months of age is not uncommon meaning that snoring, nasal airway obstruction and obstructed breathing may occur during sleep.. The establishment of the upper respiratory tract is initiated at birth.. Species of bacteria such as lactobacilli anaerobic streptococci, actinomycosis, Fusobacterium species and Nocardia are normally present by 6 months of age. Normal flora found in the adenoids consists of alpha-hemolytic streptococci and entercocci.. For more details visit one of the best homeopathy hospital in India Modern Homeopathy. ...
Hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) is the process of breathing 100% oxygen in a carefully controlled, pressurized environment, resulting in increased oxygen delivery to the body tissue. Specially designed "chambers" safely administer the oxygen needed. Patients plasma is saturated with oxygen resulting in increased oxygen delivery to the tissues. This increased oxygen activity enhances the bodys ability to heal.

An 8-year-old, brachycephalic, mixed breed cat underwent full mouth tooth extractions for the treatment of tooth root abscessation. Subsequently, the cat developed anterior uveitis refractory to topical therapy that eventually necessitated enucleation. Actinomyces species were isolated from both the tooth root abscesses and the anterior chamber after enucleation. Histopathology of the enucleated eye revealed panophthalmitis with abundant intralesional bacteria morphologically consistent with Actinomyces. Between the time of tooth root extraction and enucleation (20 weeks), the cat was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and treated with oral steroids for inflammatory bowel syndrome. We believe this report represents a rare case of endogenous endophthalmitis secondary to dental disease, possibly precipitated by concurrent immunosuppression. ...

antibiotic produced by actinobacteria is a secondary metabolites produced in the stationery phase. In other words, when you do a batch culture on this bacteria, it would produce antibiotics when the carbon source is already limited. So, I can say yes, actinobacteria can degrade this antibiotics to obtain carbon source not only from the antibiotics they produce but also carbon source from another organisms which is killed by this antibiotics. But if I were an actinobacteria and Im asked which one I prefer, Id say that eating carbon from the killed one would be better. I wont eat my own pee ...

Dental caries is the most common bacterial infection in the mouth that may progress to abscess and cellulitis if left untreated. (The caries process is described in Chapter 374). Nontooth-related intraoral bacterial infections are relatively uncommon. Extraoral bacterial infections tend to be far more common (see Chapter 367). Several other systemic conditions that have bacterial etiologies can present with oral lesions. These include streptococcal infections (see Chapter 285), diphtheria, tuberculosis, cat-scratch disease, actinomycosis, gonorrhea, and syphilis. Impetigo (see Chapter 367) is typically a superficial infection of the perioral tissues caused by Streptococcus pyogenes and Staphylococcus aureus. The classic clinical presentation is multiple delicate vesicles that spread and rupture to produce thickened amber crusts.14,15 Some cases may resemble exfoliative cheilitis or herpes labialis. Localized infections respond to topical antibiotics, while more widespread infections may require ...

The impetus for our study was the concern that the lay press often focuses on potential harm caused to patients by CT imaging," Lee said. "Lacking in this discussion is a sense of how sick these patients already are.". To better understand the risks and benefits of CT in young adults, the research team lead by Lee and Zondervan, analysed imaging records of patients 18 to 35 years old who underwent chest or abdominopelvic CT exams between 2003 and 2007 at one of three university-affiliated hospitals in Boston, USA. Children and young adults are more susceptible to ionising radiation and more likely to live for the approximately 10 to 20 years considered necessary to develop a radiation-induced malignancy.. The researchers had access to records from 22,000 patients, including 16,851 chest and 24,112 abdominopelvic CT scans. During the average 5.5-year follow-up period, 7.1% of young adults who underwent chest CT and 3.9% of those who had abdominopelvic CT died: figures that were much greater than ...

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.. ...
Image-guided drainage of tubo-ovarian abscesses help women avoid surgery, according to a study performed at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, USA.. The study included 54 tubo-ovarian abscesses in 46 patients. Results showed that "image guided tubo-ovarian abscess drainage avoided salpinto-oophorectomy (the surgical removal of a patients ovary and fallopian tube) in 95% of pelvic inflammatory disease cases, and in 72% of cases overall," according to Robin Levenson, lead author of the study.. ...

Gradual increasing of glycerol concentration up to 10% using sheep ruminal fluid as an inoculum for in vitro cultivation was accompanied by significant changes in bacterial population as documented by DGGE analysis. The resulting bacterial consortium was composed of three dominant bacteria with Actinomyces related bacterium to be predominant. Upon cultivation on media with glycerol as a sole carbon source a single bacterium was cultivated from this consortium. Isolate G10 was found to be anaerobic, Gram-positive rod-shaped bacterium. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that G10 isolate is related to the Actinomyces ruminicola species (97.7% of similarity). The role of rumen actinobacteria is largely unknown and their participation in glycerol utilization (tolerance) has not been described yet. The G10 bacterium and related consortium could be possibly used to improve glycerol tolerance and uptake by ruminants ...
GUNEY, Y. et al. Melatonin prevents inflammation and oxidative stress caused by abdominopelvic and total body irradiation of rat small intestine. Braz J Med Biol Res [online]. 2007, vol.40, n.10, pp.1305-1314. Epub 31-Jul-2007. ISSN 1414-431X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-879X2006005000156.. We investigated the day-night differences in intestinal oxidative-injury and the inflammatory response following total body (TB) or abdominopelvic (AP) irradiation, and the influence of melatonin administration on tissue injury induced by radiation. Rats (male Wistar, weighing 220-280 g) in the irradiated groups were exposed to a dose of 8 Gy to the TB or AP region in the morning (resting period - 1 h after light onset) or evening (activity span - 13 h after light onset). Vehicle or melatonin was administered immediately before, immediately after and 24 h after irradiation (10, 2.0 and 10 mg/kg, ip, respectively) to the irradiated rats. AP (P , 0.05) and TB (P , 0.05) irradiation applied in the morning ...
