Osteomyelitis of the Mandible in an Adolescent
ConclusionsOur cases highlight that paediatricians should be aware of the clinical presentations of and therapeutic approaches for DRESS syndrome, especially in children receiving long-term antibiotic treatment. The removal of the offending drug is crucial and may be the only life-saving measure. In more aggressive cases, corticosteroid or other immunosuppressive drugs should be considered to achieve the best outcome.
Advanced ankle arthritis, avascular osteonecrosis, and osteomyelitis of the ankle remain a surgical challenge in the foot and ankle arena with limited treatment options. Multiple medical comorbidities contribute to total loss of the talus. Collapse of the talar body as a complication of total ankle arthroplasty, talectomy in infection, and septic talus necrosis or severe bone defects caused by tumor resection may result in need for total talar replacement. Ankle arthrodesis and tibiocalcaneal fusion after talectomy can produce severe disability of the ankle and foot. Total ankle replacement is a viable option for treatment...
This population-based cohort study of commercially insured patients examines the association between use of oral medication for type 2 diabetes and lower extremity amputation, peripheral arterial disease, critical limb ischemia, osteomyelitis, and ulcer.
Diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) is a common complication in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) and can consequently lead to soft tissue infection and osteomyelitis.
Conclusion:10% VCM-loaded CPC offered the optimal physicochemical properties and drug releasing profile and appears as the most suitable concentration for clinical use.Level of evidence: Ⅲ
Authors: Zellali K, Benard E, Smokvina E, Belgaid A, Labbé F, Bertrand V Abstract Bone infections in cat-scratch disease (CSD) are uncommon and the diagnosis can be missed. A 3-year-old boy with multifocal pelvic osteomyelitis caused by Bartonella henselae is reported. Serological tests were negative but DNA was detected by polymerase chain reaction assay of a lymph node. A swift recovery followed antibiotic treatment and there was completeresolution within a few months. The literature on 64 cases of osteomyelitis owing to CSD in children and adults since 1954 is reviewed. PMID: 30092749 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionFine needle aspiration cytology should be done in cutaneous nodules associated with head and neck cancers to rule out malignancy, even if it clinically appears to be benign in nature.
ConclusionsThe purpose of this study is to remind clinicians of an easily recognised sequelae of an eradicated disease and make them aware of its complications.
Hypervirulent strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae are a recognized cause of a distinct invasive syndrome that results in pyogenic liver abscesses and metastatic complications, particularly in the Asia Pacific region...
We present a successful case in which off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) was performed in a tracheostoma patient using a low T-shaped partial sternotomy and the PAS-Port system. Good long-term results were achieved.
