Soft Tissue Infections
Extraction and analysis of cosmetic active ingredients from an anti-cellulitis transdermal delivery system by high-performance liquid chromatography. (1/320)A new transdermal delivery system that controls cellulitis is evaluated using reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with photodiode array detection. An extraction procedure and the validation of the analytical method to assay the active excipients from the Centella asiatica plant (asiaticoside, madacessic acid, and asiatic acid) are described. Excellent results ae obtained in terms of linearity, accuracy, and specificity of the analytical method. (+info)
Fulminant meningococcal supraglottitis: An emerging infectious syndrome? (2/320)We report a case of fulminant supraglottitis with dramatic external cervical swelling due to associated cellulitis. Blood cultures were positive for Neisseria meningitidis. The patient recovered completely after emergency fiberoptic intubation and appropriate antibiotic therapy. We summarize five other cases of meningococcal supraglottitis, all reported since 1995, and discuss possible pathophysiologic mechanisms. (+info)
Risk factors for erysipelas of the leg (cellulitis): case-control study. (3/320)OBJECTIVE: To assess risk factors for erysipelas of the leg (cellulitis). DESIGN: Case-control study. SETTING: 7 hospital centres in France. SUBJECTS: 167 patients admitted to hospital for erysipelas of the leg and 294 controls. RESULTS: In multivariate analysis, a disruption of the cutaneous barrier (leg ulcer, wound, fissurated toe-web intertrigo, pressure ulcer, or leg dermatosis) (odds ratio 23.8, 95% confidence interval 10.7 to 52.5), lymphoedema (71.2, 5.6 to 908), venous insufficiency (2.9, 1.0 to 8.7), leg oedema (2.5, 1.2 to 5.1) and being overweight (2.0, 1.1 to 3.7) were independently associated with erysipelas of the leg. No association was observed with diabetes, alcohol, or smoking. Population attributable risk for toe-web intertrigo was 61%. CONCLUSION: This first case-control study highlights the major role of local risk factors (mainly lymphoedema and site of entry) in erysipelas of the leg. From a public health perspective, detecting and treating toe-web intertrigo should be evaluated in the secondary prevention of erysipelas of the leg. (+info)
Staphylococcus intermedius cellulitis and toxic shock in a dog. (4/320)A Labrador retriever was examined for sudden lameness and cellulitis of the right forelimb. Bacterial culture of the dermis yielded a large number of Staphylococcus intermedius. The association of this bacterium with toxic shock is discussed. (+info)
Persistent Bacillus licheniformis bacteremia associated with an international injection of organic drain cleaner. (5/320)In recent years manufacturers have developed several products containing saprophytic bacteria, previously believed to be of minimal pathogenicity. We describe the first case of persistent Bacillus licheniformis bacteremia occurring after intentional injection of a consumer product that includes B. licheniformis spores. We postulate that these spores remained in the tissue, unaffected by antimicrobials, ultimately necessitating soft-tissue debridement of the area surrounding the injection site. On the basis of this case and a review of the literature, we submit that some consumer products contain bacteria with demonstrated pathogenicity. Manufacturers should study these bacteria in detail in order to rapidly provide information such as bacteriologic data and antimicrobial susceptibility data to clinicians. (+info)
Cost-effectiveness of blood cultures for adult patients with cellulitis. (6/320)To assess the cost-effectiveness of blood cultures for patients with cellulitis, a retrospective review was conducted of clinical and microbiological data for all 757 patients admitted to a medical center because of community-acquired cellulitis during a 41-month period. Blood cultures were performed for 553 patients (73%); there were a total of 710 blood samples (i.e., a mean of 1.3 cultures were performed per patient). In only 11 cases (2.0%) was a significant patient-specific microbial strain isolated, mainly beta-hemolytic streptococci (8 patients [73%]). An organism that was considered a contaminant was isolated from an additional 20 culture bottles (3. 6%). The cost of laboratory workup of the 710 culture sets was $36, 050. Isolation of streptococci led to a change from empirical treatment with cefazolin to penicillin therapy for 8 patients. All patients recovered. In conclusion, the yield of blood cultures is very low, has a marginal impact on clinical management, and does not appear to be cost-effective for most patients with cellulitis. (+info)
High prevalence of abscesses and cellulitis among community-recruited injection drug users in San Francisco. (7/320)The prevalence of and risk factors for abscesses and cellulitis were investigated among a community sample of injection drug users (IDUs). Participants were interviewed, and those with symptoms were examined. Of 169 IDUs, 54 (32%) had abscesses (n=35), cellulitis (n=5), or both (n=14); 27% had lanced their own abscesses; and 16% had self-treated with antibiotics they purchased on the street. IDUs who skin-popped (injected subcutaneously or intramuscularly) were more likely to have an abscess or cellulitis than those who had injected only intravenously (odds ratio, 4.9; 95% confidence interval, 2.2-11). The likelihood of abscesses and cellulitis increased with frequency of skin-popping and decreased with increasing duration of injection drug use. Abscesses are extremely prevalent among IDUs in San Francisco. Skin-popping is a major risk factor, and self-treatment is common. (+info)
Management and morbidity of cellulitis of the leg. (8/320)Ascending cellulitis of the leg is a common emergency. An audit was conducted in two district general hospitals to determine how it is managed and the long-term morbidity, and to formulate a treatment strategy. Case notes were reviewed for 92 patients admitted to hospital under adult specialties. Mean duration of inpatient therapy was 10 days. A likely portal of entry was identified in 51/92 cases, of which the commonest were minor injuries and tinea pedis. Pathogens were rarely identified, group G streptococci being the single most frequent organism. Benzylpenicillin was administered in only 43 cases. Long-term morbidity, identified in 8 of 70 patients with over six months' follow-up, included persistent oedema (6) and leg ulceration (2); an additional 19 patients had either suffered previous episodes or experienced a further episode subsequently. Ascending cellulitis of the leg has substantial short-term and long-term morbidity. Important but often neglected therapeutic suggestions are the inclusion of benzylpenicillin in all cases without a contraindication, assessment and treatment of tinea pedis, use of support hosiery, and serological testing for streptococci to confirm the diagnosis in retrospect. The high frequency of recurrent episodes suggests that longer courses of penicillin, or penicillin prophylaxis, might be useful. (+info)
Symptoms of cellulitis may include:
* Redness and swelling of the affected area
* Warmth and tenderness to the touch
* Pain or discomfort
* Swollen lymph nodes
If you suspect you or someone else has cellulitis, it's important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Antibiotics are usually prescribed to treat the infection, and early treatment can help prevent more serious complications.
Complications of untreated cellulitis may include:
* Abscesses: pockets of pus that form in the skin or underlying tissues
* Blood poisoning (sepsis): a potentially life-threatening condition that occurs when bacteria enter the bloodstream
* Infection of the bones or joints
Prevention is key to avoiding cellulitis. Some ways to prevent cellulitis include:
* Practicing good wound care, such as keeping wounds clean and covered
* Avoiding piercings or tattoos with unsterilized equipment
* Avoiding scratches or cuts on the skin
* Keeping the skin moisturized to prevent dryness and cracking
* Avoiding tight clothing that can cause friction and irritation
Early recognition and treatment of cellulitis are essential to prevent more serious complications. If you suspect you or someone else has cellulitis, seek medical attention as soon as possible. With prompt treatment, most people with cellulitis can recover fully.
The symptoms of orbital cellulitis may include:
* Severe pain and tenderness in the eye and surrounding tissues
* Swelling and redness of the eyelids and conjunctiva
* Discharge or pus in the eye
* Fever and chills
* Sensitivity to light
* Blurred vision or vision loss
If left untreated, orbital cellulitis can lead to serious complications such as:
* Internal eye damage
* Vision loss
* Orbital abscess
Orbital cellulitis is typically diagnosed through a combination of physical examination, imaging tests such as CT or MRI scans, and laboratory tests to identify the causative bacteria. Treatment usually involves antibiotics and, in severe cases, hospitalization and intravenous antibiotics. In some cases, surgical drainage of the abscess may be necessary.
Prompt treatment is essential to prevent serious complications and improve outcomes for patients with orbital cellulitis.
Some common types of orbital diseases include:
1. Orbital cellulitis: This is an infection of the tissues in the orbit that can be caused by bacteria or viruses. It can cause swelling, redness, and pain in the eye and eyelid.
2. Orbital abscess: This is a collection of pus in the orbit that can be caused by an infection. It can cause swelling, redness, and pain in the eye and eyelid.
3. Dacryostenosis: This is a blockage of the tear ducts that can cause tears to build up in the eye and eyelid.
4. Orbital pseudotumor: This is a condition in which there is inflammation in the orbit without any obvious cause. It can cause pain, swelling, and double vision.
5. Thyroid eye disease: This is a condition that affects the muscles and tissues around the eyes due to an overactive thyroid gland. It can cause double vision, puffy eyelids, and dryness in the eyes.
6. Graves' ophthalmopathy: This is a condition that affects the muscles and tissues around the eyes due to an autoimmune disorder. It can cause double vision, puffy eyelids, and dryness in the eyes.
7. Orbital lymphoid hyperplasia: This is a condition in which there is an abnormal growth of immune cells in the orbit. It can cause pain, swelling, and redness in the eye and eyelid.
8. Orbital sarcoidosis: This is a condition in which there are inflammatory lesions in the orbit due to a systemic autoimmune disorder called sarcoidosis. It can cause pain, swelling, and redness in the eye and eyelid.
9. Orbital pseudotumor: This is a condition that mimics a tumor but is actually caused by inflammation or abnormal blood vessels in the orbit. It can cause pain, swelling, and double vision.
10. Orbital metastasis: This is a condition in which cancer cells from another part of the body spread to the orbit. It can cause pain, swelling, and redness in the eye and eyelid.
It's important to note that this is not an exhaustive list and there may be other causes of orbital inflammation. If you are experiencing symptoms of orbital inflammation, it's important to see an eye doctor or a specialist as soon as possible for proper evaluation and treatment.
1. Atopic dermatitis: A chronic skin condition characterized by dry, itchy, and inflamed skin.
2. Psoriasis: A chronic autoimmune condition that causes red, scaly patches on the skin.
3. Eczema: A general term for various types of skin conditions that cause dryness, itching, and inflammation.
4. Cellulitis: A bacterial infection of the skin and subcutaneous tissues that can cause swelling, redness, and warmth.
5. Lymphedema: A condition characterized by the abnormal accumulation of fluid in the soft tissues, leading to swelling and discomfort.
6. Varicose veins: Enlarged and twisted veins that can cause aching, cramping, and skin changes such as darkening or thickening.
7. Keratosis pilaris: A condition characterized by the buildup of keratin on the skin, causing small bumps and rough texture.
8. Vitiligo: A condition that causes the loss of melanin-producing cells, leading to white patches on the skin.
9. Necrobiosis lipoidica: A condition characterized by the formation of yellowish, soft, and tender nodules on the skin.
10. Pyoderma gangrenosum: A condition characterized by the development of large, painful ulcers on the skin.
Leg dermatoses can cause significant discomfort, pain, and embarrassment, and may have a negative impact on an individual's quality of life. Treatment options vary depending on the specific condition and its underlying causes, and may include topical medications, oral medications, light therapy, and lifestyle changes. It is important to seek medical attention if symptoms persist or worsen over time, as early diagnosis and treatment can help to prevent complications and improve outcomes.
Soft tissue infections are typically caused by bacteria or fungi that enter the body through cuts, wounds, or other openings in the skin. They can also be caused by spread of infection from nearby tissues or organs, such as bone or joint infections.
Symptoms of soft tissue infections may include redness, swelling, warmth, and pain in the affected area, as well as fever and chills. In severe cases, these infections can lead to serious complications, such as abscesses or gangrene.
Treatment for soft tissue infections typically involves antibiotics or antifungal medications, depending on the type of infection and the severity of symptoms. In some cases, surgical drainage may be necessary to remove infected tissue or abscesses.
It is important to seek medical attention if you suspect that you have a soft tissue infection, as early treatment can help prevent complications and promote faster healing. Your healthcare provider may perform a physical examination, take a sample of the affected tissue for testing, and order imaging studies such as X-rays or CT scans to determine the extent of the infection and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
The exact cause of orbital pseudotumor is unknown; however, it is believed to be an immune-mediated response to an underlying infection or inflammatory process. It can occur at any age but is most common in young adults and middle-aged women.
Symptoms of orbital pseudotumor may include:
1. Progressive protrusion of one eye
2. Diplopia (double vision)
3. Blurred vision
4. Eye pain or discomfort
5. Redness and swelling of the affected eye
If you suspect you may have orbital pseudotumor, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. A comprehensive eye exam and imaging tests such as CT or MRI scans can help diagnose the condition. Treatment options for orbital pseudotumor include:
1. Steroids: To reduce inflammation and swelling
2. Antibiotics: If an underlying infection is suspected
3. Immunosuppressive medications: To suppress the immune system and prevent further inflammation
4. Surgery: In some cases, surgical intervention may be necessary to remove any affected tissue or to relieve pressure on the eye.
It is important to note that orbital pseudotumor can recur in some cases, so close follow-up with an eye care professional is crucial to monitor for any signs of recurrence and to prevent any long-term visual complications.
1. Impetigo: A highly contagious infection that causes red sores on the face, arms, and legs. It is most commonly seen in children and is usually treated with antibiotics.
2. Cellulitis: A bacterial infection of the skin and underlying tissue that can cause swelling, redness, and warmth. It is often caused by Streptococcus or Staphylococcus bacteria and may require hospitalization for treatment.
3. MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus): A type of staph infection that is resistant to many antibiotics and can cause severe skin and soft tissue infections. It is often seen in hospitals and healthcare settings and can be spread through contact with an infected person or contaminated surfaces.
4. Erysipelas: A bacterial infection that causes red, raised borders on the skin, often on the face, legs, or arms. It is caused by Streptococcus bacteria and may require antibiotics to treat.
5. Folliculitis: An infection of the hair follicles that can cause redness, swelling, and pus-filled bumps. It is often caused by Staphylococcus bacteria and may be treated with antibiotics or topical creams.
6. Boils: A type of abscess that forms when a hair follicle or oil gland becomes infected. They can be caused by either Staphylococcus or Streptococcus bacteria and may require draining and antibiotics to treat.
7. Carbuncles: A type of boil that is larger and more severe, often requiring surgical drainage and antibiotics to treat.
8. Erythrasma: A mild infection that causes small, red patches on the skin. It is caused by Corynebacterium bacteria and may be treated with antibiotics or topical creams.
9. Cellulitis: An infection of the deeper layers of skin and subcutaneous tissue that can cause swelling, redness, and warmth in the affected area. It is often caused by Staphylococcus bacteria and may require antibiotics to treat.
10. Impetigo: A highly contagious infection that causes red sores or blisters on the skin, often around the nose, mouth, or limbs. It is caused by Staphylococcus or Streptococcus bacteria and may be treated with antibiotics or topical creams.
These are just a few examples of common skin infections and there are many more types that can occur. If you suspect you or someone else has a skin infection, it's important to seek medical attention as soon as possible for proper diagnosis and treatment.
There are several types of abscesses, including:
1. Skin abscesses: These occur when a bacterial infection causes pus to accumulate under the skin. They may appear as red, swollen bumps on the surface of the skin.
2. Internal abscesses: These occur when an infection causes pus to accumulate within an internal organ or tissue. Examples include abscesses that form in the liver, lungs, or brain.
3. Perianal abscesses: These occur when an infection causes pus to accumulate near the anus. They may be caused by a variety of factors, including poor hygiene, anal sex, or underlying conditions such as Crohn's disease.
4. Dental abscesses: These occur when an infection causes pus to accumulate within a tooth or the surrounding tissue. They are often caused by poor oral hygiene or dental trauma.
The symptoms of an abscess can vary depending on its location and severity. Common symptoms include:
* Redness, swelling, and warmth around the affected area
* Pain or discomfort in the affected area
* Fever or chills
* Discharge of pus from the affected area
* Bad breath (if the abscess is located in the mouth)
If an abscess is not treated, it can lead to serious complications, including:
* Further spread of the infection to other parts of the body
* Inflammation of surrounding tissues and organs
* Formation of a pocket of pus that can become infected and lead to further complications
* Sepsis, a life-threatening condition caused by the spread of infection through the bloodstream.
Treatment of an abscess usually involves drainage of the pus and antibiotics to clear the infection. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove affected tissue or repair damaged structures.
It's important to seek medical attention if you suspect that you have an abscess, as prompt treatment can help prevent serious complications.
Symptoms of periapical abscess may include:
* Pain in the affected tooth and surrounding areas
* Swelling of the face, cheek, or neck
* Redness and tenderness of the gums
* Fever and chills
* Bad breath
* Discharge of pus from the abscess
If left untreated, periapical abscess can lead to more severe complications such as:
* Bacterial endocarditis (infection of the inner lining of the heart)
* Osteomyelitis (infection of the bone)
* Sepsis (systemic infection)
Treatment of periapical abscess usually involves a combination of antibiotics and dental treatment, such as:
* Root canal therapy to remove the infected pulp and nerve tissue
* Extraction of the affected tooth if it is too damaged to be saved
* Drainage of the abscess to release any collected pus
Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial to prevent further complications and ensure a successful outcome.
