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 ...
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 ...

Actinomycosis Definition Actinomycosis is an infection primarily caused by the bacterium Actinomyces israelii. Infection most often occurs in the face and neck region and is characterized by the presence of a slowly enlarging, hard, red lump.
Actinomyces are gram-positive aerobic-growing bacteria that are part of human bacterial flora. They usually occur in a commensal relationship with the host, growing, in particular, on teeth and other surfaces in the mouth. Actinomyces infections, which are more prevalent among men than among women (3:1), usually affect patients in their fourth decade and most often involve A. israeli (85%). A. meyeri is less common. Actinomycosis occurs most frequently with cervicofacial involvement (in up to 65% of cases); thoracic, abdominal or pelvic actinomycosis is uncommon. Pulmonary infections and hematogeneous spread result more often from A. meyeri than from other actinomycetal species.1 Dentogingival disease is a risk factor for acquiring A. meyeri infection, and alcoholics are at high risk for pulmonary actinomycosis because of their poor dental health and the higher likelihood of ...

Its chronic and ...
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 ...

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 ...
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 ...

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 ...

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.. ...

Pathophysiology of canaliculitis. As has been mentioned above, canaliculitis occurs due to infection of the canaliculi. This infection is often brought on by bacteria though there could be alternative aetiology such as fungi and viruses as well. The most common cause of canaliculitis is Actinomyces Israelii. However, the other causes can include aspergillus, Canada albicans and even herpes simplex and herpes zoster virus.. Infection by these organisms results in the formation of tiny stones that are rich in sulphur. These stones form little pockets that unfortunately are not affected by the antimicrobial properties of tears.. History and examination. ...

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. ...

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 ...

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. This discussion covers choice of flap, techniques, and technical considerations for medial/perinasal, perilabial, preauricular, lateral, and zygomatic cheek defects ...
OBJECTIVES: To review simultaneous intra-operative sclerotherapy (IOS) with immediate surgical resection for the treatment of cervicofacial venous malformations (VMs) at a single institution. While pre-operative sclerotherapy (POS) has been reported in the literature, simultaneous intra-operative sclerotherapy and surgery in the operating room has not. METHODS: The database from the Hemangioma and Vascular Birthmarks Clinic was reviewed. All patients in both groups had biopsy-proven VMs. RESULTS: IOS was used in 11 surgical patients with average age 17 years. Sclerotherapy was performed with sodium tetradecyl sulfate 3%, absolute alcohol or bleomycin. Immediately after IOS, and under the same anesthetic, all patients had either complete resection or debulking of the VMs. Eight patients had complete resolution of their VM and 3 had improvement. Average duration of the combined procedures done under a single anesthetic was 121â ¯min. The POS approach was used for 6 surgical patients with ...

The exclusion criteria were incomplete hospitalization records. There were a total of 139 files were retained. Results: In 60 months, 139 cases were collected out of 1720 patients hospitalized for surgery, representing a hospital prevalence of 8.08%. The average age was 46.89 years. (123 women and 16 men). The socio-professional categories were dominated by housewives (68.34%). The reported functional signs were tachycardia, asthenia and other signs ...
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 ...

Contributor Comment: Actinomycosis is a pyogranulomatous osteomyelitis that primarily affects cattle and is caused by the gram-positive bacterium Actinomyces bovis.9 Occasionally other species such as pigs, deer, sheep, goats and horses are affected.9 A similar species of bacterium, A. israeli, is responsible for the disease in human beings.6 The affected bone is thickened from multiple coalescing py-ogranulomas that impart to the bone tissue a honeycomb appearance.5 The inoculation of A. bovis - a commensal organism of the oral cavity - into the oral mucosa of animals can be facilitated by small wounds from hard straw present in the feed, foreign bodies and dental eruption. 9. Although actinomycosis has been described in cattle at unusual sites such as the penis and in the maxilla, as in the case presented here, the classical presentation in cattle is in the mandible and rarely in the maxilla.9,12 It is likely that the reason the mandible ...
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.. ...

Dental abscesses come in three types, depending on what causes them. A periapical abscess happens when bacteria enters the dental pulp through a cavity. A periodontal abscess is the result of gum disease (or sometimes an injury). Finally, a gingival abscess happens when a foreign body like a piece of popcorn hull remains embedded in the gum tissue long enough to cause an infection.. ...

Alongside pain, other symptoms of dental abscesses include redness and swelling in your face, a tender or loose tooth and sensitivity to hot or cold food and drink. If you think you have a dental abscess you should visit your dentist as this problem will only get worse - it can lead to further complications and can affect your health. When you visit Real Good Dental, your dentist will examine your mouth, teeth and gums. If you have a dental abscess then your treatment will involve draining away the pus and dealing with the source of infection. In extreme situations, the affected tooth may have to be removed or a root canal procedure may be necessary. An anaesthetic will be used and you should only feel a small amount of discomfort. While you are waiting to visit your dentist you can relieve discomfort by cleaning your teeth with a soft toothbrush and by taking over-the-counter pain medication (ask your chemist for advice on the best type to take). ...
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 ...

My friend David took a chance on penicillin. He has been suffering from a most hideous bacterial infection called klebsiella which has resulted in his body becoming a mass of internal ulcers that have needed drainage, surgery and physical washing. This on top of surgery he had for another situation, extremely unpleasant in its own right. This nightmare has played out over months with David and his doctors trying every treatment known to medicine. Discomfort all round. Operation upon operation. Horrible.. Eventually DRPs doctors told him they had exhausted all options and the only alternative left was intravenous penicillin. But therein lay the rub - David is allergic to antibiotics. Has been since he was a child. So he had a choice - die from the septicaemia, or roll the dice on a drug that could kill him. But hes no shrinking violet, so roll he did - and he survived. It seems he had outgrown his childhood allergy.. Through all of this DRP has been posting updates on Facebook so his many ...
Ninety-one patients (80% males) were included in the study. The majority of cases were found in men aged 51-60 years old (26%) and 41-50 years old (17%). Around 30% of the patients were men who have sex with men (MSM). Snellen BCVA was converted to logMar notation. Pre-treatment mean was 0.42 (BCVA around 20/50) while post-treatment mean was 0.34 (BCVA around 20/40). The most common ophthalmological diagnoses were all types of uveitis (anterior being the most frequent one with a proportion of 31%). Coinfection with HIV was found in 34 % of patients. Lumbar puncture was done in 55% of patients and VDRL serology was positive in 11% of those patients. The mainstay of treatment was intravenous penicillin in 75% of the patients. In about 85% of patients treated, no history of reinfection was noted.. ...
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 ...
