Postpartum septic pelvic thrombophlebitis after caesarean delivery: a case report

We report a case of a 41-year-old woman with fever and right abdominal pain three days after an uncomplicated caesarean delivery. Clinical, laboratory and imaging exams were unremarkable and the patient was treated for endometritis. In the absence of improvement despite an antibiotic adjustment, a clinical diagnosis of septic pelvic thrombophlebitis was made, and the patient presented a good response to anticoagulation in conjunction with broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy.

Publication date: Available online 5 December 2019Source: Orthopaedics &Traumatology: Surgery &ResearchAuthor(s): Jean-Yves JennyAbstractHip or knee revision for infection requires careful planning of the debridement phase. Bacteriological sample management needs to be planned. Multidisciplinary decisions have to be taken as to 1- or 2-stage strategy, reconstruction technique and soft-tissue management. Surgical resection should be complete while economical. There must be no shortcomings in the technical procedure. Implant removal and surgical debridement are the keys to curing the infection, and planning is essent...

We hereby report a case of subclinical community ‐acquiredAcinetobacter pneumonia in association with a mature cystic teratoma masquerading as a lung abscess. A 22 ‐year‐old lady presented with fever and right pleuritic chest pain with chest X‐ray showing a right suprahilar shadow. Her symptoms largely subsided with antibiotic therapy but the shadow remained unresolved. Computerized tomography (CT) scan of thorax showed consolidation over the anterior se gment of the right upper lobe with a hypodense area suspicious of a lung abscess. Fine needle aspirates of the lesion grewAcinetobacter baumannii twice but the sha...

Objective: to study features of pulmonary complications in intravenous drug users (IDUs) with and without HIV.Materials and Methods: 149 patients (111 were males, mean age - 34,6±5,2 years)- IDUs diagnosed with pneumonia who were included in the study as they admitted to the hospital. HIV infection was verified in 112 (75%). 105 (70%) patients had viral hepatitis (B, C, B+C), 70 (47%) -tuberculosis.Results: In the presence of HIV infection, especially with severe immunosuppression of CD4+

We report a case of cervicofacial, subcutaneous, and mediastinal emphysema caused by dental laser treatment. The patient consulted our hospital complaining of swelling and pain across his both sides of the forehead, around the eye lid, from left cheek to the neck. On computed tomography, low absorption images indicative of air infiltration were found scattered from the forehead and left side of the face to the left side of the neck. We admitted the patient to monitor his airway, for bed rest, and to initiate prophylactic intravenous antibiotic therapy. Consequently, 6 days after the dental laser treatment, the patient&rsqu...

CONCLUSIONS: Our results indicated showed that the supplement with the probiotic mix of Bifidobacterium lactis LA 304, Lactobacillus salivarius LA 302, and Lactobacillus acidophilus LA 201 in combination with the standard antibiotic therapy for AUD reduced abdominal pain and inflammation significantly more than antibiotic treatment used alone. These findings could be due to the anti-inflammatory activity of the probiotic mix. Larger studies are needed to validate its use in the clinical practice. PMID: 31696504 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: This is the first case of AST complicated with thyroid metastasis from easophageal cancer and it throws new light on AST and thyroid metastasis for physicians.When patient present to hospital because of fever,neck pain and swelling,AST should be alarmed.The diagnosis of AST should be based on high clinical suspicion.In addition,thyroid cancer have to be taken into our account,especially when antibiotic therapy is ineffective.Notably,except for primary thyroid cancer,thyroid metastasis should be alarmed.

CONCLUSIONS: In patients suffering from chronic pain after TKA, periprosthetic low-grade infection was diagnosed in a relevant proportion of cases. Therefore, synovial biopsies for histological and microbiological evaluation should be collected whenever there's clinical suspicion of PPI. For histological evaluation, samples should be collected using arthroscopic control and ideally multiple biopsies should be taken. For microbiological evaluation, excessive joint lavage should be avoided. PMID: 31658475 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
