Conclusions: In children with persistent symptomatic CDC, despite adequate antifungal therapy, administration of corticosteroids may yield rapid resolution of symptoms and decreased inflammatory markers. In patients who do not respond to steroids, the addition of a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug should be considered.

g; T Abstract Endophthalmitis is a severe intraocular infection with potentially devastating consequences, such as becoming blind or loss of an eyeball. It can be exogenous (postoperative or posttraumatic) or endogenous. The most frequent causes of postoperative endophthalmitis are cataract surgery and intravitreal injections. Typical symptoms are pain and loss of visual acuity. Hypopyon and infiltration of the vitreous body with the loss of the red reflex are the most important clinical findings for endophthalmitis. The diagnosis is primarily clinical and supported by microbiological cultures and PCR from th...

Authors: Metin A, Dilek N, Bilgili SG Abstract Intertrigo is a common inflammatory dermatosis of opposing skin surfaces that can be caused by a variety of infectious agents, most notably candida, under the effect of mechanical and environmental factors. Symptoms such as pain and itching significantly decrease quality of life, leading to high morbidity. A multitude of predisposing factors, particularly obesity, diabetes mellitus, and immunosuppressive conditions facilitate both the occurrence and recurrence of the disease. The diagnosis of candidal intertrigo is usually based on clinical appearance. However, a range...

AbstractChronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) has a substantial worldwide prevalence and is a major cause of hearing impairment. In cases of CSOM unresponsive to local antibiotics, superimposed fungal infection should be suspected. The aim of the present study was to study the spectrum of cases with fungal otitis media. The study was conducted over a period of 12  years (2006–2017). Fifteen cases of CSOM clinically not suspected to be of fungal etiology that underwent surgery with identification of fungal organisms on histopathology were included in the study. Age of the patients ranged from 12 to 75 year...

CONCLUSIONS Lidocaine 2% has strong antimicrobial activities against some commonly encountered bacterial strains in PJI. As a result, infiltration anesthesia with additive-free lidocaine 2% before the arthrocentesis procedure may affect the results of SFC. To further evaluate its potential antibacterial usefulness in clinical applications, studies are needed to assess the ability of lidocaine to reduce the risk of iatrogenic infections.

Conclusion: SPE in IDUs manifests with variable and often nonspecific clinical and radiographic features. For high-risk groups, such as IDUs, fever, acute thrombophlebitis of the proximal veins, and imaging findings of multiple nodules or local infiltrates, with or without cavitation, are highly suggestive of SPE. Association of the SPE and HIV leads to an unfavorable outcome.
