Infections of non-skeletal tissue, i.e., exclusive of bone, ligaments, cartilage, and fibrous tissue. The concept is usually referred to as skin and soft tissue infections and usually subcutaneous and muscle tissue are involved. The predisposing factors in anaerobic infections are trauma, ischemia, and surgery. The organisms often derive from the fecal or oral flora, particularly in wounds associated with intestinal surgery, decubitus ulcer, and human bites. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1688)

One of the three domains of life (the others being Eukarya and ARCHAEA), also called Eubacteria. They are unicellular prokaryotic microorganisms which generally possess rigid cell walls, multiply by cell division, and exhibit three principal forms: round or coccal, rodlike or bacillary, and spiral or spirochetal. Bacteria can be classified by their response to OXYGEN: aerobic, anaerobic, or facultatively anaerobic; by the mode by which they obtain their energy: chemotrophy (via chemical reaction) or PHOTOTROPHY (via light reaction); for chemotrophs by their source of chemical energy: CHEMOLITHOTROPHY (from inorganic compounds) or chemoorganotrophy (from organic compounds); and by their source for CARBON; NITROGEN; etc.; HETEROTROPHY (from organic sources) or AUTOTROPHY (from CARBON DIOXIDE). They can also be classified by whether or not they stain (based on the structure of their CELL WALLS) with CRYSTAL VIOLET dye: gram-negative or gram-positive.

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)

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)

Preseptal cellulitis is a distinct disorder that explains an infection of the eyelid and superficial periorbital soft tissues, which do not involve the globe and orbit (10). One of the most common ocular diseases is a cellulitis in the orbital area, relatively. It can usually be treated effectively with antibiotics. Rapid diagnosis is very necessary, since a delay in detection, diagnosis and management can cause serious complications such as vision loss, cavernous sinus thrombosis, meningitis, and sepsis.. Preseptal cellulitis and orbital cellulitis can both present with increasing swelling, tenderness and redness around the eye, but their management differs. Preseptal cellulitis is more common and much less aggressive than orbital cellulitis (11). Preseptal cellulitis characterizes a cellulitis of the tissues localized anterior to the orbital septum. This distinction is important, as orbital cellulitis, while less common, may be associated with significant visual and life-threatening sequelae, ...

Eosinophilic cellulitis is a rare dermatosis originally described by Wells as recurrent granulomatous dermatitis with eosinophilia, then called Wells syndrome. The etiology is unknown, although a hypersensitivity mechanism is suspected. Flame figures are considered as a characteristic histologic feature of Wells syndrome. To clarify the nature of eosinophilic cellulitis and its flame figures, the authors have reviewed five cases of eosinophilic cellulitis with its clinical and histopathologic findings. Cutaneous lesions were variable in appearance and was confused with angioedema, urticarial vasculitis, erydiema multiforme, morphea or granuloma annulare. Microscopically, early lesions (2-7 days) showed diffuse dermal eosinophilic infiltration with widespread degranulation, sometimes extended into the underlying muscle. Subepidermal bulla was present in one case. Subsequently, granulomatous features with characteristic flame figures became apparent (several months). Collagen alteration by ...

It is very interesting that how fast we are changing our practice lately. Still remember when we started to give double dose of TMP/SMZ plus cephalexin for cellulitis, and then we changed it to 1 dose of TMP/SMZ + cephalexin and then we doubted if cephalexin is necessary or not. JAMA published a randomized study showing Effect of Cephalexin Plus Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazole vs Cephalexin Alone on Clinical Cure of Uncomplicated Cellulitis. 496 patients received cephalexin plus trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole vs cephalexin plus placebo in uncomplicated cellulitis.

We found that there was no clinical difference in outcome when treating lower limb cellulitis with either intravenous flucloxacillin alone or combining it with intravenous benzylpenicillin. Furthermore, there was no difference in subjective outcome from the patient perspective when the two antibiotic regimens were compared. It seems likely from our data that the addition of penicillin to a regimen containing flucloxacillin is unnecessary in the management of cellulitis.. There are potential weaknesses in our findings. These include a large number of randomised patients who did not complete the protocol, albeit that several were inappropriately randomised to begin with (penicillin allergy, admission pending under inpatient team). Our concern over the smaller size of area affected in the flucloxacillin alone group led us to perform the analysis of covariance, on the assumption that this difference allowed flucloxacillin to seem as effective, but only because it was used in patients with milder ...
Cellulitis is a common infection of the skin and structures beneath skin, including the fat tissue. Cellulitis is most common on the legs, but can occur anywhere on the body. Although cellulitis may affect the top layer of skin (called the epidermis), it is classified as infection of the structures beneath the skin, such as the structural tissue below the skin (called the dermis) and the fat tissue (called subcutaneous tissue) which lies below the dermis and above the muscle. Cellulitis usually begins as a small, red area on or below the skin. In the first stages, cellulitis is often mistaken for a bruise, scratch, or insect bite, but can quickly spread into a much larger area of the skin, structures under the skin, or into the bloodstream. ...

Conditions that create breaks in the skin and allow bacteria to enter, such as eczema and severe acne, will put a child at risk for cellulitis. Chickenpox, scratched insect bites, animal bites, and puncture wounds are other causes.. Cellulitis also can form in areas of intact skin, especially in people who have diabetes or who are taking medicines that suppress the immune system.. Orbital cellulitis, which infects the eyelid and tissues surrounding the eye, requires particularly close monitoring. It can be caused by minor trauma to the area around the eye (such as an insect bite or a scratch) or be an extension of another infection, such as sinusitis. This kind of cellulitis is treated with antibiotics and close follow-up. If untreated, it can progress to a more serious infection that affects vision.. ...

A 10 week old, intact female Labrador Retriever presented to the Emergency Service at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals (CUHA) in February 2012 following a four day history of progressive forelimb lameness, fever, and pinnal pustules. On presentation to CUHA, the dog was markedly painful and nonambulatory, with bilateral elbow joint effusion and significant soft tissue swelling over the elbows, forearms, and paws. Pustules were noted on the inner pinnae and chin. Differential diagnoses for the progressive lameness included panosteitis, hypertrophic osteodystrophy, vaccine reaction and septic arthritis. For the pinnal pustules, differential diagnoses included a vaccine reaction, juvenile cellulitis, and bacterial pyoderma. Radiographs of the forelimbs and cytology of the pinnal pustules and joint fluid, along with the development of panniculitis, pointed to a presumptive diagnosis of juvenile cellulits. The dog was treated with oral dexamethasone and symptomatic care. She made a full ...
Cellulitis is defined as an infection of the skin and soft tissue beneath the skin. The infection is usually due to bacteria that are commonly present on the skin or inner surface of the nose or mouth of otherwise normal and healthy people, most commonly staphylococci or streptococci. Cellulitis develops when there is a break in the skin such as a wound or injury, which may be minor or even go unnoticed. This break allows bacteria to pass through the outer layer of the skin and multiply, causing infection and swelling. Many cases of cellulitis are mild and heal completely with antibiotic treatment. However, some can be severe and lead to generalized infection. Thus, it is imperative to seek medical care promptly if the infection is associated with fever, rapid spreading and other signs of progression, or other medical conditions such as diabetes are present.1. Certain conditions increase the risk for developing cellulitis (Table 1), but it can occur in patients without known risk factors.1 The ...

Orbital cellulitis is a relatively uncommon presentation in the emergency department, but orbital cellulitis complicated by intracranial extensions, loss of vision, and death has rarely been reported in the literature. We report a 40-year-old Pakistani diabetic male complaining of 5 days of bilateral eye pain, proptosis, ophthalmoplegia, headache, and fever. A diagnosis of orbital cellulitis with intracranial extension was made. A computed tomography (CT) scan and a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were done on the patient and showed unremarkable orbits, extensive sinusitis, frontal abscess, and multiple septic emboli. The patient was admitted and on day 9 deteriorated and died. Orbital cellulitis associated with intracranial extension is an extremely rare presentation, and the incidence is unknown.

Orbital cellulitis is inflammation of eye tissues behind the orbital septum. It most commonly refers to an acute spread of infection into the eye socket from either the adjacent sinuses or through the blood. It may also occur after trauma. When it affects the rear of the eye, it is known as retro-orbital cellulitis. It should not be confused with periorbital cellulitis, which refers to cellulitis anterior to the septum. Common signs and symptoms of orbital cellulitis include pain with eye movement, sudden vision loss, chemosis, bulging of the infected eye, and limited eye movement. Along with these symptoms, patients typically have redness and swelling of the eyelid, pain, discharge, inability to open the eye, occasional fever and lethargy. It is usually caused by a previous sinusitis. Other causes include infection of nearby structures, trauma and previous surgery. Orbital cellulitis occurs commonly from bacterial infection spread via the paranasal sinuses. Other ways in which orbital ...
Periorbital or preseptal cellulitis is the inflammation of the eyelids and the other soft tissues outside the orbit. This can be caused by trauma, or by an infected wound or an abscess in the lid. This can also be caused by a stye, conjunctivitis, infected blocked tear duct and insect bite. The most important thing to consider is to differentiate this with orbital cellulits which involves the inflammation of the tissues of the orbit with proptosis and limitations of eye movement. Sometimes it is hard to differentiate the two especially when the eyes are really swollen and it is hard to examine the movement of the eye. We then order a CT scan of the head and the orbits to determine if there is extension in the orbits. Orbital cellulitis follows a direct infection from a wound, deposition of organisms from the eyelids, conjunctiva, metastatic involvement from a tumor. The most common cause in children is paranasal sinusitis. Orbital cellulitis have complications which result in meningitis and ...
Orbital Cellulitis most often presents with symptoms similar to preseptal cellulits such as red and swollen eyelids, but also includes pain, blurred or double vision, fever, headache, and a red eye. These conditions refer to an inflammation and infection of the tissue and skin that surround the eye. Your baby wont be able to tell you if his eye hurts, but if his eyelid is swollen and red, call his doctor right away. Both of these conditions are serious and require immediate medical attention by your childs physician. This infection usually results from the spread of another nearby infection such as conjunctivitis or sinusitis. Treatment is with antibiotics and sometimes surgical drainage. The most common location of a subperiorbital abscess is along the medial orbital wall. Orbital cellulitis is an inflammation of the soft tissues in the orbit of the eye posterior to the orbital septum. Orbital cellulitis affects the eye socket (orbit) as well as the skin closest to it. A CT scan confirms the ...

INTRODUCTION: Orbital cellulitis is an uncommon, potentially devastating condition that, when not promptly and adequately treated, can lead to serious sequelae. The presenting clinical signs are proptosis, swelling, ophthalmoplegia, pain and redness of the peri-orbital tissues. A number of cases have been reported in which these symptoms have been mistakenly interpreted as being secondary to an orbital infection whilst, in fact, other pathology was present. DISCUSSION: We add another case in which, on clinical grounds and after radiological assessment and laboratory tests, a working diagnosis of orbital cellulitis of the left eye was made. It was only after histopathological analysis of a soft tissue specimen from the maxillary sinus that a diagnosis of an AIDS-related plasmablastic lymphoma was made. The patient was referred to the department of haematology where chemotherapeutic treatment for the lymphoma and the HIV infection was started. This case report adds another differential diagnosis ...

Retinoblastoma-associated orbital cellulitis is a well-recognized clinical entity. Inflammation of orbital soft tissues can clinically mimic extraocular tumor invasion, potentially affecting patient management decisions. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an established modality for tumor staging and assessment of extraocular spread in advanced intraocular retinoblastoma. As far as we are aware, MRI findings in retinoblastoma-associated orbital inflammation have not been reported in the literature. Herein, we have described the MRI features of the orbit in retinoblastoma-associated cellulitis, and its role in differentiating inflammation from extraocular tumor invasion. Full Story →. ...
What is the difference between Erysipelas and Cellulitis? Lesions are localized and have clearly demarcated boundaries in erysipelas; in cellulitis, the lesions
Cellulitis is a common infection of the deep dermis and subcutaneous tissue, most often caused by bacteria, that presents with the classic signs of inflammation as described by the Roman scholar Celsus in the first century CE: redness (rubor), swelling (tumor), heat (calor), and pain (dolor). Erysipelas is a variant of cellulitis that predominantly affects the superficial lymphatic vessels and surrounding tissue. Unlike the ill-defined plaques characterizing classic cellulitis, erysipelas demonstrates sharply marginated edematous plaques and is strikingly red in color. Diagnosis may be challenging and relies predominantly on clinical findings as laboratory, serologic, microbiologic, histopathologic, and imaging studies are often equivocal or negative. For these reasons, despite the high prevalence of these infections, misdiagnosis is common and may lead to both treatment-related morbidity and significant health care costs. ...
Red is a bold color. You have to be brave to wear an all-red outfit. How many men have you seen wear a red suit, besides The Joker and Elton John? I wear red ties. I dont have any red pants or shirts. Shoe colors are cordovan or ox blood, but not red. Better dead than red?. What happens if your skin is red?. Cellulitis and erysipelas are two types of relatively common skin infections. Bacteria infect the skin and cause redness, heat, and swelling that can be painful. Erysipelas occurs more often in kids, and cellulitis in adults. Strep and staph are usually the bad boys of these skin infections.. Butterfly is a rap song that I cannot do justice to on my karaoke machine. Well, erysipelas on the face kind of looks like a butterfly, affecting the forehead, nose, and cheeks. But erysipelas doesnt flow like a butterfly. It spreads like wild fire, causing a raised, swollen, well-demarcated rash. Fever, chills, and just feeling ill often occur with erysipelas, but usually not with cellulitis. ...

Orbital cellulitis generally produces unilateral eyelid edema, hyperemia of the orbital tissues, reddened eyelids, and matted lashes. Although the eyeball is initially unaffected, proptosis develops later due to edematous tissues within the bony confines of the orbit. Other indications include extreme orbital pain, impaired eye movement, chemosis, and purulent discharge from indurated areas. The severity of associated systemic symptoms (chills, fever, and malaise) varies with the cause. Complications include posterior extension, causing cavernous sinus thrombosis, meningitis, or brain abscess and, rarely, atrophy and subsequent loss of vision secondary to optic neuritis.. ...

I. What every physician needs to know. The classification of orbital infections is based on a five-tier system, which is as follows: Group I (periorbital cellulitis, which is also known as preseptal cellulitis), Group II (orbital cellulitis), Group III (subperiosteal abscess), Group IV (orbital abscess), and Group V (cavernous sinus thrombosis). Periorbital/preseptal cellulitis affects structures…. ...
Introduction: Sodium hypochlorite is a solution used in endodontic treatment, and if an accidental apical extrusion occurs, serious complications may affect soft tissue. Objective: The aim of this article is to present a case of apical extrusion of sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) during root canal system instrumentation. Case report: A 28-year-old woman sought a local dental service for root canal treatment of tooth #24. Conventional endodontic treatment was adopted, which consisted of the use of 2.5% NaOCl solution as irrigation solution applied with a 10-ml syringe and 22G hypodermic needle. At that time, the patient reported extreme pain and a burning sensation in the left maxillary region, followed by the formation of intense edema. A clinical diagnosis of hypochlorite-induced cellulitis was made. The patient was treated immediately with amoxicillin (500 mg, orally) at intervals of 8 h for 7 days and dexamethasone (4 mg, intramuscularly) at intervals of 24 h for 3 days. In the subsequent ...
Cellulitis is a spreading skin infection. It may affect the upper skin layer. Or it may affect the deeper skin and layer of fat under the skin. When cellulitis affects the upper skin layer, it may be called erysipelas. This type of infection is more common in children.

During March I am working full time from home. Still struggling to get around but things are improving. Then disaster! I started to get chilblains on my RIGHT foot. I had kicked my middle toe (seen in photo above) at the end of February and the chilblains took hold around the middle of march. Unfortunately the redness started spreading up my middle toe so I started taking antibiotics as a precaution for two weeks.. April 2011. My doctor put me on nifedapine to try to increase the blood flow to my feet. The chilblains started to recede and I stopped taking it. Saw my consultant on 13th April and was sent for multiple blood tests, I think there were 16 in all. I am advised to go back on nifedapine..

Hospitalizations for certain chronic conditions are considered avoidable for adult Canadians given effective and timely primary care management. Individual-level risk factors such as income and health behaviours are not routinely collected in most hospital databases and as a result, are largely uncharacterized for avoidable hospitalization at the national level. The aim of this study was to identify and describe demographic, socioeconomic, and health behavioural risk factors for avoidable hospitalizations in Canada using linked data. A national retrospective cohort study was conducted by pooling eight cycles of the Canadian Community Health Survey (2000/2001-2011) and linking to hospitalization records in the Discharge Abstract Database (1999/2000-2012/2013). Respondents who were younger than 18 years and older than 74 years of age, residing in Quebec, or pregnant at baseline were excluded yielding a final cohort of 389,065 individuals. The primary outcome measure was time-to index avoidable ...
An acute bacterial skin and skin-structure infection (ABSSSI) is a bacterial infection of the skin with a lesion size of ≥75 cm2, which is measured by the area of redness, edema, or induration.1. The types of infections that comprise ABSSSIs include cellulitis or erysipelas, major cutaneous abscesses, and wound infections1; these infections can be life-threatening and may require hospitalization and surgery.2 Streptococcus pyogenes and Staphylococcus aureus, including methicillin-resistant S aureus (MRSA), are the most common bacterial pathogens responsible for ABSSSIs. The less common ABSSSI-causing pathogens include other Streptococcus species, Enterococcus faecalis, and gram-negative bacteria.1 In the United States, more than 2 million individuals are infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria annually, and at least 23,000 die annually as a direct result of these infections.3 Cellulitis, a skin infection that is primarily attributed to streptococci, is most often caused by Streptococcus ...

In one study, otolaryngologists were able to clinically diagnose peritonsillar abscess versus peritonsillar cellulitis with 78% sensitivity and 50% specificity when compared to contrast CT and/or ultrasound.1 Traditional management has been to perform diagnostic (and potentially therapeutic) blind needle aspiration. Yet, blind needle aspiration carries a false-negative rate of 10-24%.2 A recent review highlights that intraoral ultrasound consistently has superior diagnostic and procedural advantages when compared to clinical exam alone.3 Intraoral sonography carries a 90-100% sensitivity allowing providers to differentiate between peritonsillar abscess and cellulitis. A number of case series and reviews now support the ability of EM physicians to accurately diagnose PTA.2,3-6 Further, a recent randomized trial compared POC ultrasound and landmark-based (i.e. blind aspiration) head-to-head amongst emergency department patients. Twenty-eight patients were enrolled with the findings that ultrasound ...
