This study aimed to determine the incidence, spectrum, and risk factors for major infections in hospitalized children with nephrotic syndrome. METHODS: All consecutive hospitalized children between 1-12 years of age with nephrotic syndrome were enrolled in the study. Children with acute nephritis, secondary nephrotic syndrome as well as those admitted for diagnostic renal biopsy and intravenous cyclophosphamide or rituximab infusion were excluded. RESULTS: A total of 148 children with 162 admissions were enrolled. Incidence of major infections in hospitalized children with nephrotic syndrome was 43.8%. Peritonitis ...

Authors: Swindell WR, Gau JT Abstract Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare but serious neutrophilic dermatosis characterized by ulcerative lesions with violaceous borders. The disease mainly occurs in young or middle-aged adults. The authors present the case of a 79-year-old female nursing home patient who had an idiopathic PG-like ulcer on her lower extremity. Initial treatment with 3 courses of antibiotics and topical wound care for assumed cellulitis failed to improve the lesion, but the ulcer healed rapidly after a 1-week course of prednisone therapy (15 mg/d). This case provides insights into the challenges tha...

In this study, we reported a 2-(N-Phenylmethylsulfonamido)-N-(2-(phenylthio)phenyl)propanamide (PSTP) compound, PSTP-3,5-Me, as a potential therapeutic agent for osteoporosis. Mouse bone marrow-derived macrophages (BMMs) were differentiated into osteoclasts by receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa B ligand (RANKL) and macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) in the presence of PSTP-3,5-Me. PSTP-3,5-Me inhibited osteoclast differentiation by reduced tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP)-positive osteoclasts, and suppressed the expression of osteoclast marker genes, such as cathepsin K (Ctsk) and TRAP (Acp5). W...

ConclusionsThis case report is valuable in that it is the first case in which this syndrome was diagnosed by a genetic method. Munchausen syndrome should not be neglected as a possible cause of refractory and recurrent infection.

Cellulitis is commonly treated in the emergency department (ED). Oritavancin is a novel, broad-spectrum antibiotic which provides an entire treatment course for cellulitis with one dose. However, optimal ED prescribing scenarios for oritavancin have not been well defined. The purpose of this study was to identify a population of ED patients with cellulitis who would be most appropriate to receive oritavancin.

We report the case of a 5-week-old male infant with retrobulbar orbital abscess secondary to acute dacryocystitis developed from a dacryocystocele. The patient presented with respiratory difficulty, sepsis and progressive clinical findings suggestive of post-septal cellulitis. He was successfully treated with endonasal incision of subturbinate dacryocystoceles followed by probing of the lacrimal ducts. Congenital dacryocystocele must be considered a differential diagnosis in infants with respiratory difficulty and may develop into a vision- and life-threatening condition requiring immediate intervention.

Abstract Gram-negative toe-web infection can cause pain and disability, be complicated by a long healing time, management failure, and cellulitis, and recur due to persistent predisposing factors. To describe the clinical features and management of Gram-negative toe-web infection and evaluate predisposing factors and associated diseases, their management, and the effect of controlling them on the rate of recurrence, we conducted a retrospective real-life study of patients with Gram-negative toe-web infection. Among the 62 patients (sex ratio 9:1), 31 experienced more than one episode of Gram-negative toe-web infec...

We present a case of Myroides spp. lower extremity cellulitis and bacteremia. To our knowledge, this is the 16th case of cutaneous infection caused by Myroides spp. Etiology of this patient’s infection was felt to be related to exposure of his pre-existing lower extremity wounds to soil and water versus a dog lick in the context of relative immunosuppression from type 2 diabetes and chronic inhaled steroid use. Given the characteristic multi-drug resistance of Myroides spp., resistance to usual empiric antimicrobials given for cellulitis, and potential for fatal infection in cases of pan-resistance, it is important t...

We present a patient with left-sided neck swelling after a recent oral surgical procedure and was found to grow Actinomyces turicensis on wound culture. The patient was treated with intravenous ampicillin-sulbactam, which not only decreased the swelling but improved the necrotic appearance of his abscess wound.
