Liver abscess due to Fusobacterium species detected on ultrasonography: a case report

We present such a case history of a man in his mid-40s, who presented with infection and Fusobacterium liver abscess with an acute fulminant disease course. The initial diagnosis was arrived at by ultrasound imaging and blood investigations. He was treated with antibiotics, ultrasound-guided liver abscess drainage, and extraction of the infected molar tooth. He was discharged 6  weeks after admission. To date, there have been no reports describing the ultrasound images of a Fusobacterium liver abscess in detail. Hence, we herein present the ultrasound images of a Fusobacterium liver abscess.

In this study, we analyzed and compared the intestinal microbiota composition of patients with idiopathic focal epilepsy (n = 30) and healthy volunteer group (n = 10) by 16s ribosomal DNA sequencing. Proteobacteria phylum was found to be higher in patients with epilepsy (25.4%) than in healthy volunteers group (1.5%). The genera of Campylobacter, Delftia, Haemophilus, Lautropia, Neisseria among Proteobacteria phylum were found to be statistically significantly higher in patients with epilepsy than in healthy volunteers (p

In these new types of outbreaks, morbidity was high and clinical signs severe, resulting in substantial economic losses for affected farms. In our study, we visited 18 free stall dairy herds experiencing an outbreak of IP and 3 control herds without a similar outbreak. From a total of 2...

Authors: Hernández-Luna MA, López-Briones S, Luria-Pérez R Abstract Worldwide, neoplasms of the gastrointestinal tract have a very high incidence and mortality. Among these, colorectal cancer, which includes colon and rectum malignancies, representing both highest incidence and mortality. While gallbladder cancer, another neoplasm associated to gastrointestinal tract occurs less frequently. Genetic factors, inflammation and nutrition are important risk factors associated with colorectal cancer development. Likewise, pathogenic microorganisms inducing intestinal dysbiosis have become an importan...

CONCLUSIONS: The composition and structure of bacterial communities in CG patients were different from HC. Most of the genera observed in CG patients were associated with periodontitis and pulp infection. These findings might be helpful in understanding the etiology of CG. Further study will be needed to confirm these findings and explore the underlying pathological mechanism. PMID: 31655830 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionIn children with AM presenting with, high fever, leukocytosis, elevated CRP, and sub-periosteal abscess, early CT and surgical intervention were frequently required. The increase in Fusobacterium infection might be an explanation for the increase in complicated AM requiring surgery.
