Osteopetrosis: presenting as maxillary osteomyelitis.

Osteopetrosis: presenting as maxillary osteomyelitis. Trop Doct. 2019 Mar 21;:49475519833548 Authors: Gupta S, Kumar R, Agrawal A Abstract Osteopetrosis is a rare congenital disease presenting with recurrent fractures, hematopoietic insufficiency and hepatosplenomegaly. Though osteomyelitis is a known complication in osteopetrosis, osteopetrosis presenting as osteomyelitis is rare. Management consists of multidisciplinary approach for complications and bone marrow transplant for the infantile form of disease. PMID: 30895884 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In recent years nontyphoidal Salmonella has emerged as one of the pathogens most frequently isolated from the bloodstream in humans. Only a small group of Salmonella serovars cause this systemic infection, known as invasive nontyphoidal salmonellosis. Here, we present a focused minireview on Salmonella enterica serovar Panama, a serovar responsible for invasive salmonellosis worldwide. S. Panama has been linked with infection of extraintestinal sites in humans, causing septicemia, meningitis, and osteomyelitis. The clinical picture is often complicated by antimicrobial resistance and has been associated with a large repert...

ABSTRACT Cicatricial ectropion may be a consequence of certain systemic diseases as well as the result of drug use. Our goal here was to research the different causes of this condition as reported in the literature, including more recently suspected etiologies. A detailed PubMed literature search indicated many different etiologies were associated with cicatricial ectropion development, from severe cases of systemic diseases, such as ichthyosis and lupus erythematosus, to reversible scenarios secondary to anti-glaucomatous drug use. More recently reported connections include periorbital necrotizing fasciitis, frontal osteo...

Conclusion: New onset symptoms or persistent symptoms in SBO suggest progressive disease and necessitate re-evaluation of the microbial aetiology and antimicrobial treatment. Skull base osteomyelitis induced aneurysm is rare but can be life threatening, if not identified and managed immediately.

Infection and inflammation are a common occurrence with orthopaedic procedures. Anatomical modalities can show the transformation in the disease process; however, these may occur later when compared with functional imaging modalities that are more likely to identify early disease patterns. Various molecular imaging modalities such as three-phase bone scintigraphy, labelled leucocyte scintigraphy, as well as radiolabelled antibiotics and immunoglobulins have been considered and have played key roles in assisting clinical decision-making. While 18F-flurodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET/computed tomography (CT) has been relatively well...

Definitive treatment of chronic osteomyelitis of the long bones typically includes radical debridement of infected areas, and such patients generally received several surgical interferences, leading to serious bone and soft tissue damages and eventually considerable bone defects [1]. Although a multitude of treatment options are employed to eradicate long-lasting bone infections and to reconstruct defects of long bones, the treatment of osteomyelitis of the long bones remains a considerable challenge, even in the best hands [2].

Osteomyelitis of calcaneus is a sinister condition which can lead to serious complication if treatment is delayed. Indolent nature of calcaneus osteomyelitis leads to overlap in its clinical picture with Sever's disease. Two cases of Sever's disease which were later diagnosed and managed for osteomyelitis are reported. Salien...

We report outcomes from 52 patients with chronic osteomyelitis from implant infection treated with a single stage protocol including debridement augmented with application of CERAMENT™/G biocomposite after resection of Cierny-Mader (C-M) stage III and IV chronic osteomyelitis. Mean age was 53 years with a mean follow up of 17 months. Infection was eradicated in 48 (92.3%) patients. There were four (7.7%) recurrences. Eighteen patients (35%) had a flap. Staphylococci (51%) and Enterococci (15%) were the commonest microorganisms. Local antibiotic augmentation (CERAMENT™/G biocomposite) with dead space management ...
