Actinomycosis: Infections with bacteria of the genus ACTINOMYCES.Actinomycosis, Cervicofacial: A form of ACTINOMYCOSIS characterized by slow-growing inflammatory lesions of the lymph nodes that drain the mouth (lumpy jaw), reddening of the overlying skin, and intraperitoneal abscesses.Actinomyces: A genus of gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria whose organisms are nonmotile. Filaments that may be present in certain species are either straight or wavy and may have swollen or clubbed heads.Mycobacterium haemophilum: A species of gram-positive, aerobic bacteria that causes granulomatous or ulcerating skin lesions in immunosuppressed persons. This organism owes its name to its requirement for growth of high levels of iron, conveniently supplied as blood, heme, or ferric ammonium citrate.Intrauterine Devices: Contraceptive devices placed high in the uterine fundus.Lymphadenitis: Inflammation of the lymph nodes.Cheek: The part of the face that is below the eye and to the side of the nose and mouth.Dental High-Speed Technique: Dental methods involving the use of DENTAL HIGH-SPEED EQUIPMENT.Neck: The part of a human or animal body connecting the HEAD to the rest of the body.Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: A spectrum of inflammation involving the female upper genital tract and the supporting tissues. It is usually caused by an ascending infection of organisms from the endocervix. Infection may be confined to the uterus (ENDOMETRITIS), the FALLOPIAN TUBES; (SALPINGITIS); the ovaries (OOPHORITIS), the supporting ligaments (PARAMETRITIS), or may involve several of the above uterine appendages. Such inflammation can lead to functional impairment and infertility.Face: The anterior portion of the head that includes the skin, muscles, and structures of the forehead, eyes, nose, mouth, cheeks, and jaw.Vascular Malformations: A spectrum of congenital, inherited, or acquired abnormalities in BLOOD VESSELS that can adversely affect the normal blood flow in ARTERIES or VEINS. Most are congenital defects such as abnormal communications between blood vessels (fistula), shunting of arterial blood directly into veins bypassing the CAPILLARIES (arteriovenous malformations), formation of large dilated blood blood-filled vessels (cavernous angioma), and swollen capillaries (capillary telangiectases). In rare cases, vascular malformations can result from trauma or diseases.Granuloma, Foreign-Body: Histiocytic, inflammatory response to a foreign body. It consists of modified macrophages with multinucleated giant cells, in this case foreign-body giant cells (GIANT CELLS, FOREIGN-BODY), usually surrounded by lymphocytes.Bronchial DiseasesOophoritis: Inflammation of the OVARY, generally caused by an ascending infection of organisms from the endocervix.Pelvic Infection: Infection involving the tissues or organs in the PELVIS.Actinomyces viscosus: A species of ACTINOMYCES found in the oral cavity of man and hamsters.

Cervicofacial actinomycosis: CT and MR imaging findings in seven patients. (1/14)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Cervicofacial actinomycosis is uncommon, but without proper treatment it causes extensive tissue destruction. Early diagnosis is critical but usually difficult with cultures or imaging. Our aim was to identify characteristic imaging features that facilitated diagnosis in seven patients with cervicofacial actinomycosis. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the CT and MR findings in seven patients with pathologically proved actinomycosis. Histologic diagnosis was made by means of surgical excision or biopsy in seven patients. Culturing was performed in two patients. Enhanced CT scans (n=7) and MR images (n=2) were evaluated for the location, margin, infiltrative nature, enhancement pattern, and presence of lymphadenopathy. RESULTS: CT and MR images showed either a well-defined (n=2) or ill-defined (n=5) mass. Involved areas included the nasal cavity (n=2), buccal space (n=1), pyriform sinus (n=1), aryepiglottic fold (n=1), oro- and hypopharynx (n=1) and tongue (n=1). Imaging confirmed the infiltrative nature, showing the tendency of the lesion to invade across tissue planes and boundaries (n=6). Moderate homogeneous contrast enhancement was seen on CT scans in six patients with several small low-attenuating foci (n=2). T1- and T2-weighted MR images showed intermediate signal intensity with moderate contrast enhancement (n=2). Reactive lymphadenopathy was associated in three patients. CONCLUSION: Although cervicofacial actinomycosis occurs infrequently, it should be included in the differential diagnosis when images show a soft-tissue mass with inflammatory changes and an infiltrative nature in the cervicofacial area.  (+info)

Human cervicofacial actinomycoses: microbiological data for 1997 cases. (2/14)

Actinomycoses are sporadically occurring endogenous polymicrobial inflammatory processes, in which fermentative actinomycetes of the genera Actinomyces, Propionibacterium, or Bifidobacterium act as the principal pathogens. Difficulties in diagnosing the disease in a timely and reliable fashion have led clinicians and microbiologists to grossly underestimate its medical importance. Therefore, we evaluated microbiological and selected clinical data derived from 1997 culture-positive cases of human cervicofacial actinomycoses examined in our laboratories during 1972-1999. The causative actinomycetes belonged to at least 9 different species, among which Actinomyces israelii and Actinomyces gerencseriae predominated. The well-known predisposition of male patients to acquire the disease varied with age and appeared to be especially pronounced in patients aged 20-60 years, the highest incidence being found in female patients aged 11-40 years and in male patients aged 21-50 years. The relevant procedures necessary for diagnosing human actinomycoses reliably, as well as details of their complex etiology, are discussed.  (+info)

Histopathologic examination to confirm diagnosis of periapical lesions: a review. (3/14)

Most periapical lesions are represented by inflammatory cysts, granulomas, abscesses or fibrous scars. These inflammatory conditions are often termed "endodontic lesions" because pulpal necrosis is the initiating event in their pathogenesis. Although rare, other clinically confusing periapical lesions have been extensively documented in numerous case reports and short case series. These lesions represent a wide range of pathosis, including various developmental cysts, infections, benign but locally aggressive lesions, and malignancies. The literature describing these lesions and the value of a histopathologic examination in diagnosis is reviewed.  (+info)

Short-term treatment of actinomycosis: two cases and a review. (4/14)

Recommendations for prolonged penicillin treatment of actinomycosis date from the early antibiotic era, when patients often presented with neglected, advanced disease and received interrupted therapy at suboptimal dosages. This report describes cases of esophageal and of cervicofacial actinomycosis treated successfully with short-term antibiotic therapy and reviews the literature. Many patients are cured with <6 months of antibiotic therapy. If short-term antibiotic treatment is attempted, the clinical and radiological response should be closely monitored. Cervicofacial actinomycosis is especially responsive to brief courses of antibiotic treatment.  (+info)

Fine-needle aspiration cytology in the diagnosis of cervicofacial actinomycosis: report of 15 cases. (5/14)

OBJECTIVES: Actinomycosis is quite an infrequent bacterial infection nowadays. However it can be considered in cases with a persistent cervicofacial disease. Although it is a bacterial infection, microbiologic cultures are frequently not diagnoses, therefore histopathologic studies and image studies are essential. Our interest is to explain our experience with cervicofacial actinomycosis; the clinical behaviour, evolution and treatment, always assisted by their elected diagnostic technique: the FNAC. STUDY DESIGN: In the last 16 years, 15 patients have been diagnosed with cervicofacial actinomycosis by FNAC, treated by Maxillofacial, Internal Medicine and Paediatrics units. Clinical course, evolution, anatomical space situation, antibiotic treatment, and surgical treatment have been studied. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: The fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is an easy, safe and rapid method, with a high effect, that has made the final diagnosis in 15 cases in our Hospital. All the patients have had a good clinical evolution, only in one case did we need a new treatment for recidive. In all the cases treatment has been definitive. Our interest is to explain our experience in the treatment of cervicofacial actinomycosis, its clinical presentation and evolution, together with its elected method of diagnosis, FNAC.  (+info)

Cervicofacial actinomycosis: still a difficult differential diagnosis. (6/14)

Cervicofacial actinomycosis, a rare chronic infectious disease, is, however, an important clinical entity, due to the difficulties involved, still today, in its diagnosis. Following personal experience in a case referred to our Department, and in agreement with reports in the literature, attention is drawn to the presenting clinical manifestations, stressing that these are often confusing since they mimic those of other diseases, Moreover, many pre-operative investigations (radiological scans, incisional biopsy, fine-needle aspiration) are generally nonspecific. Finally, surgical excision of the mass is now the last essential step to make a definitive diagnosis and define the appropriate antibiotic therapy.  (+info)

Two unusual presentations of cervicofacial actinomycosis and review of the literature. (7/14)

Cervicofacial actinomycosis is the most common clinical form of actinomycosis. This bacterial infection is rare. Diagnosis is difficult, often it is definitive only after surgical excision of the cervicofacial mass. Personal experience is reported concerning two cases of cervicoactinomycosis. Diagnosis, in both cases, has been based on histological findings, not on clinical symptoms. A review of the literature shows that mainly males are affected by this condition and, in fact, both patients described here are males. Symptoms of acute infection were absent. Both patients denied any history of oromaxillofacial trauma or recent dental extraction or oral manipulations. Imaging techniques--ultrasonography and computerized tomography--were not effective in making the diagnosis, in either of these patients. Furthermore, fine needle aspiration cytology did not provide a definitive diagnosis. Both patients underwent surgical excision of the mass. Penicillin was the drug of choice in post-operative long-term treatment (one month). In one of the two men, intravenous steroids were administered. As in several reports in the literature, the definitive diagnosis was histological and not clinical.  (+info)

Actinomycotic pseudo-tumour of the mid-cervical region (a case report). (8/14)

Cervicofacial actinomycosis is today a rare disease in our country. Isolated actinomycotic neck masses are extremely rare. A case of young man with an isolated midcervical tumour like actinomycotic granuloma without sinuses or discharging granules is reported here.  (+info)

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..

Actinomycosis is a rare disease. The cervicofacial region is the most frequent localization. A chronic pus discharge, sometimes tumor-like, suggests the diagnosis, which is often confirmed by anatomopathology. The treatment is surgical debridement and antibiotic therapy, frequently long-term. We report three cases of mandibular actinomycosis. A 21-year-old male patient presented ...
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.
Esophageal actinomycosis has been autoptically discovered. Its diagnosis and differentiation from tuberculosis would probably rest upon the microscopic study of tissue removed esophagoscopically though as yet no such case.

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 ...

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 ...
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.. ...
Case Reports in Gastrointestinal Medicine is a peer-reviewed, Open Access journal that publishes case reports focusing on gastroenterology, hepatology, pancreas and biliary, and related cancers.
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 ...
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. (d) Pelvic - lesion on the pelvic region, associated with the use of intrauterine devices. ...

Successful reconstruction of the cheek following excision for cutaneous malignancy requires careful consideration of defect location, size, and depth in relation to the anatomic properties of the affected cheek unit. Various reconstructive options are available to the surgeon, ranging from simple excisions to complex cervicofacial advancements to meet the needs for functional and aesthetically pleasing reconstructive outcomes. The surgeon must prevent distortion of mobile structures, such as the eyelid, nose, and lips; respect aesthetic subunits; and avoid blunting natural creases.

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 ...
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.. ...

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). Jones is of the opinion that the disease, if ...

To the Editor:. Pneumothorax and spontaneous pneumomediastinum should be considered in an Ecstasy user who complains of chest pain, neck pain, or shortness of breath (1-5). We report a case of a patient who presented with subcutaneous cervical air emphysema and spontaneous pneumomediastinum associated with Ecstasy use.. A 27-year-old man was admitted to the hospital, complaining of sudden chest pain and dyspnea. He had taken one tablet of Ecstasy and was an occasional drug abuser. No history of trauma or surgery was reported. Initial examination showed cervicofacial and thoracic subcutaneous air emphysema. The initial chest radiograph showed emphysema in the cervicofacial, thoracic, and axillary regions with no evidence of rib fracture or pneumothorax. The results of the esophagogram, otolaryngologic examination, and bronchoscopy ruled out any abnormality. The chest CT demonstrated air in the subcutaneous, visceral, and carotid spaces of the neck, extending along the anterior mediastinal space. ...

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 ...

BACKGROUND: Facial nerve palsy is a rare complication of acute otitis media (AOM). The general understanding is that this complication has a bacterial cause although bacteria can be isolated from the middle ear only in approximately two-thirds of cases of AOM. Detection of viral agents from specimens obtained during myringotomy in patients with AOM suggests a possible role of viruses in the etiology of this disease. CASE PRESENTATIONS: We studied 5 otherwise healthy 17- to 27-month-old children who were referred to the Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Cervicofacial Surgery from December 2012 to January 2016 because of AOM and ipsilateral facial nerve palsy ...

BACKGROUND: Reconstruction of large defects in the temporal region can be performed with skin grafts or pedicled or free flaps. Results are often not optimal because of the patch of a skin graft, lack of availability of local flaps, and distant skin from free flaps. A technique for reconstruction of these defects with local tissue is presented in this article that uses superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) plication to allow wide advancement of a cervicofacial flap. METHODS: Once the defect is outlined, a face-lift-like skin incision is used to raise the flap. The SMAS is plicated with two purse-string sutures that relieve tension on the flap and allow maximal advancement. Thirteen face-lift SMAS plication flaps were used in 12 patients (mean age, 70.2 years) after cancer resection, which was bilateral in one case. Defects up to 8 cm in largest diameter can be closed. In one case of an 8 × 6-cm defect, a 1 × 1.5-cm skin graft was necessary. RESULTS: All flaps healed uneventfully, and no ...

As the nerve exits the stylomastoid foramen, it gives off a sensory branch that supplies part of the external acoustic meatus and tympanic membrane. It then passes between the posterior belly of the digastric muscle and the stylohyoid muscle and enters the parotid gland. Lying between the deep and superficial lobes of the gland the nerve divides into to main branches at the pes anserinus (Latin: duck foot) - a superior temporofacial and and inferior cervicofacial branches. From the anterior border of the gland, five branches emerge; temporal, zygomatic, buccal, mandibular (marginal) and cervical (see facial nerve branches mnemonic here). The temporal branch runs with the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) over the zygomatic arch. This branch is at risk during surgery in this region. To avoid damage procedures should be deep to the SMAS (e.g. zygomatic fracture repairs). The mandibular branch, in 80% of cases, runs along the lower border of the mandible (thus also referred to as ...

Im currently working on the BRCA1 gene and am having troubles amplifying its exon 2 as there is a pseudo gene sequence that is very homologous to it and im worried that im amplifying both so i decided to look for the most recent sequences for these two regions (BRCA1 and its pseudo gene) for both of which i have some old accession numbers. however these are old sequences and alignment of these sequences do not correspond with my currant results. I would be very grateful ifyou could let me know where and how i can find up to date DNA genomic sequences for these two regions and what would be the best way to align them so as to decipher non-homologous primer sequences. Or do you know of anyone else who could help me. Thank you very much Yogen Patel _________________________________________________________________ Send and receive Hotmail on your mobile device: http://mobile.msn.com ...
