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)

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...

The area involved may not be typical for erysipelas, the lesion may be less intensely red than usual and may fade into surrounding skin, and/or the patient may appear only mildly ill. In such cases, it is prudent to broaden the spectrum of empirical antimicrobial therapy to include other pathogens, particularly S. aureus, that can produce cellulitis with the same appearance. Staphylococcal infection should be suspected if cellulitis develops around a wound or an ulcer. Streptococcal cellulitis tends to develop at anatomic sites in which normal lymphatic drainage has been disrupted, such as sites of prior cellulitis, the arm ipsilateral to a mastectomy and axillary lymph node dissection, a lower extremity previously involved in deep venous thrombosis or chronic lymphedema, or the leg from which a saphenous vein has been harvested for coronary artery bypass grafting. The organism may enter via a dermal breach some distance from the eventual site of clinical cellulitis. For example, some patients ...
