Isolation of Pseudomonas stutzeri from an odontogenic inflammatory cyst: Diagnostic relevance.

[Isolation of Pseudomonas stutzeri from an odontogenic inflammatory cyst: Diagnostic relevance]. Rev Argent Microbiol. 2017 Feb 07;: Authors: Molgatini S, Rey E, Basilaki J, Mosca C, Galante R, Gliosca L Abstract Pseudomonas stutzeri is distributed widely in the environment, and occupies different ecological niches. However, it is found in clinically relevant infections as an opportunistic pathogen. Isolation of P. stutzeri from an odontogenic inflammatory cyst is an uncommon microbiological finding that has not been reported to date. In the case presented here, the bacterium was isolated from surgical material obtained from excision of an inflammatory odontogenic cyst located in the tooth 1.2, and presenting with concomitant pulp necrosis. Complementary techniques such as radiographs, CAT scans, and histopathological and microbiological studies were used to establish definitive diagnosis. The obtained results allowed classifying the process as an inflammatory cyst infected by P. stutzeri. Biotyping and characterization of the susceptibility profile of the isolated strain allowed adjusting the antibiotic therapy more specifically. The microbiological studies allowed establishing the etiology of the infectious process, adjusting the treatment plan, and re-establishing tissue integrity.

Conclusion: Based on the findings of the present study, although the sensitivity of ultrasonography in detection of pneumonia was significantly higher than chest x-ray, overall the screening performance characteristics of the 2 tests were not significantly different. Therefore, considering characteristics such as safety, low cost, being portable, and being available, ultrasonography seems to be a reasonable tool for screening and diagnosis of patients with pneumonia.

​BY DILEM POLAT &KHALID MALIK, MDA 50-year-old man with hypertension presented to the emergency department with an exacerbation of his lower back and perianal pain that he had had for two weeks, with a new onset of active fecal draining and difficulty urinating for four hours. He said he had no headache, nausea, vomiting, weakness, fatigue, fever, and chills, and all other reviews of systems were negative.His temperature was 98.5°F, blood pressure was 108/57 mm Hg, pulse rate was 113 bpm, respiratory rate was 20 bpm, and oxygen saturation was 97% on room air. His abdomen was soft, mildly distended, and not tender...

M, Szabó G Abstract Chronic nonbacterial osteomyelitis is a sterile inflammatory osteitis that most commonly develops in the long bones, but it can occur in any bone. Mandibular lesions are found in 1.5-3% of disease foci in patients and it is poorly characterized in the maxillofacial surgery literature due to the use of inconsistent terminology. The purpose of this study was to present the clinical experience of chronic nonbacterial multicentric osteomyelitis and a collection of research and information of the disease. This is a retrospective study of 2 cases with mandibular lesions radiographically consis...

The diagnosis of pneumonia is challenging. Our objective was to assess whether low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) modified the probability of diagnosing pneumonia in elderly patients. We prospectively included patients aged over 65 years with a suspicion of pneumonia treated with antimicrobial therapy (AT). All patients had a chest radiograph and LDCT within 72 h of inclusion. The treating clinician assessed the probability of pneumonia before and after the LDCT scan using a Likert scale. An adjudication committee retrospectively rated the probability of pneumonia and was considered as the reference for diagnosi...

A 23-year-old woman presented to our emergency department with chief complaints of recurrent episodes of intermittent fever and productive cough with greenish phlegm for the past few days. Her medical history included frequent sneezing, rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, and ear discharge since childhood. Her vital signs were as follows: blood pressure, 112/85  mmHg; heart rate, 75 beats/min and respiratory rate, 18 breaths/min. She was afebrile. Physical examination revealed crackles over bilateral lower lungs. Laboratory work-up was unremarkable except for leukocytosis and an elevated C-reactive protein level. Chest ra...

Twenty-six patients with suspected hip (24) and knee (2) prosthesis infection underwent routine analysis of blood, plain radiography and 99m Tc-HMPAO labelled leukocyte scan (WBCS). On these basis, patients were subdivided in the following groups: bone...

The objectives of this study were, in a current adult CF population, to assess the prevalence of bone disease, to examine its relationship with infections and inflammation, and to characterize the bone microarchitecture using high resolution peripheral scanner (HR-pQCT). Methods Fifty-six patients (52 % men, 26 ± 7 years) were assessed in clinically stable period, during a respiratory infection, and finally 14 days after the end of antibiotic therapy. At each time points, we performed a clinical evaluation, lung function tests, and biochemical test...

Authors: Brammen L, Palestro C, Sinzinger H Abstract OBJECTIVE: A serious complication of joint replacement surgery is infection, which results in prolonged invalidity as well as removal and subsequent re-implantation after lengthy antibiotic therapy. In terms of diagnostic imaging, nuclear medicine has presented several tracers and imaging modalities over the years to be used in prosthetic joint infection. The PubMed/MEDLINE literature database was systematically examined for publications on infection, arthroplasty, joint replacement, prosthetic joint, gallium, labeled leukocytes, sulfur colloid, antimicrobial pep...

CONCLUSIONS: To the author's knowledge, the advanced wound matrix used in this study is the only available biomaterial for the treatment of tunneled lesions. It stimulates tissue regeneration by filling surfaces which cannot be repaired spontaneously or by using conventional biomaterials in the form of sheets. Its application is atraumatic, painless, and safe. PMID: 26061490 [PubMed - in process]
