184. Intraoral drainage under surgical microscopy with tonsillectomy for parapharyngeal abscesses. (Abstract)

Intraoral drainage under surgical microscopy with tonsillectomy for parapharyngeal abscesses. An intraoral approach combined with tonsillectomy has been used to access the parapharyngeal space. However, the utility of this technique for parapharyngeal abscesses in paediatric patients has not been investigated. This paper describes an intraoral drainage technique combined with tonsillectomy for treating children with a parapharyngeal abscess that obviates the need for skin incision.Clinical case (...) records are presented, along with a description of the surgical procedure accompanied by a video clip.Both cases encountered involved paediatric parapharyngeal space abscesses that extended to the skull base. The patients underwent an intraoral approach combined with tonsillectomy performed under surgical microscopy; this resulted in a good post-operative course without complications.To our knowledge, no previous reports have addressed the use of surgical microscopy to help access the parapharyngeal

185. Brain Abscess and Keratoacanthoma Suggestive of Hyper IgE Syndrome Full Text available with Trip Pro

Brain Abscess and Keratoacanthoma Suggestive of Hyper IgE Syndrome Hyper immunoglobulin-E (IgE) syndrome is an autosomal immune deficiency disease. It is characterized by an increase in IgE and eosinophil count with both T-cell and B-cell malfunction. Here, we report an 8-year-old boy whose disease started with an unusual skin manifestation. When 6 months old he developed generalized red, nontender nodules and pathologic report of the skin lesion was unremarkable (inflammatory). Then he (...) developed a painless, cold abscess. At the age of 4 years, he developed a seronegative polyarticular arthritis. Another skin biopsy was taken which was in favor of Keratoacanthoma. Laboratory workup for immune deficiency showed high eosinophil count and high level of immunoglobulin-E, due to some diagnostic criteria (NIH sores: 41 in 9-year-olds), he was suggestive of hyper IgE syndrome. At the age of 8, the patient developed an abscess in the left inguinal region. While in hospital, the patient

. Orbital computed tomography (CT) scan showed a well-defined, hypo-dense, peripheral rim-enhancing lesion in relation to left superior rectus muscle suggestive of left superior rectus abscess. The abscess was drained through skin approach. We concluded that pyomyositis of EOM should be considered in any patient presenting with acute onset of orbital inflammation and characteristic CT or magnetic resonance imaging features. Management consists of incision and drainage coupled with antibiotic therapy. (...) Isolated abscess in superior rectus muscle in a child Pyomyositis is a primary bacterial infection of striated muscles nearly always caused by Staphylococcus aureus. Development of the intramuscular abscess involving the extra-ocular muscles (EOMs) remains an extremely rare process.

serious infections like endocarditis, abscesses, or necrotizing fasciitis or risk exposure to HIV and hepatitis from sharing needles? One response to this is that those who are addicted to opioids have built up a tolerance so they won’t show any effects from skin or inhalational exposure but as we have just shown that is not possible. Also, let’s say you started by injecting fentanyl, wouldn’t you then want to switch over to skin absorption if that was at all possible? Carfentanil = Fentanyl (...)

hemorrhoid). Thirty-day complications were observed in 5 patients (n = 4 urinary retention, 1 perianal abscess). Five patients with Crohn's disease eventually required proctectomy at a median of 7 years after skin tag excision (range, 6 months to 10 years), but none were secondary to impaired wound healing. Two patients with ulcerative colitis who had previously undergone IPAA were subsequently diagnosed with Crohn's disease of the pouch after skin tag excision. No other long-term complications were seen (...) Hemorrhoidectomy and Excision of Skin Tags in IBD: Harbinger of Doom or Simply a Disease Running Its Course? Controversy in performing hemorrhoidectomy and anal skin tag excision in patients with IBD stems from dated reports of nonhealing wounds resulting in proctectomy.This study aimed to determine the safety of interventional management of hemorrhoids or anal skin tags in patients with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis.This study is a retrospective review of patient records from 2000

191. Effect of Initial Bedside Ultrasonography on Emergency Department Skin and Soft Tissue Infection Management. (Abstract)

Effect of Initial Bedside Ultrasonography on Emergency Department Skin and Soft Tissue Infection Management. We examine the utility of emergency department (ED) ultrasonography in treatment of skin and soft tissue infections.We enrolled ED patients with skin and soft tissue infections and surveyed clinicians in regard to their pre-ultrasonography certainty about the presence or absence of an abscess, their planned management, post-ultrasonography findings, and actual management. We determined (...) sensitivity and specificity of ultrasonography and clinical evaluation, and assessed appropriateness of management changes based on initial clinical assessment and outcomes through 1-week follow-up.Among 1,216 patients, clinicians were uncertain of abscess presence in 105 cases (8.6%) and certain for 1,111 cases (91.4%). Based on surgical exploration and follow-up through 1 week, sensitivity and specificity for abscess detection by clinical evaluation were 90.3% and 97.7%, and by ultrasonography were 94.0

197. Guidelines vs Actual Management of Skin and Soft Tissue Infections in the Emergency Department Full Text available with Trip Pro

Guidelines vs Actual Management of Skin and Soft Tissue Infections in the Emergency Department Infections of skin and soft tissue (SSTI) commonly cause visits to hospital emergency departments (EDs). The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) has published guidelines for the management of SSTI, but it is unclear how closely these guidelines are followed in practice.We reviewed records of patients seen in the ED at a large tertiary care hospital to determine guidelines adherence in 4 (...) important areas: the decision to hospitalize, choice of antibiotics, incision and drainage (I&D) of abscesses, and submission of specimens for culture.The decision to hospitalize did not comply with guidelines in 19.6% of cases. Nonrecommended antibiotics were begun in the ED in 71% of patients with nonpurulent infections and 68.4% of patients with purulent infections. Abscesses of mild severity were almost always treated with antibiotics, and I&D was often not done (both against recommendations). Blood

The what, when and how in performing and interpreting microbiological diagnostic tests in skin and soft tissue infections. To summarize and classify the most recent and relevant microbiological studies for each type of skin and soft tissue infection (SSTI).Following Infectious Diseases Society of America and Food and Drug Administration classifications of SSTIs, we differentiate between two large groups, the superficial or uncomplicated infections and the complicated infections with deep (...) involvement. It is not usually necessary to obtain microbiological samples in uncomplicated infections, except in cases of recurrences or for epidemiological control purposes. In the case of complicated infections, the samples are of two different types: those obtained from the affected area (surgical samples, punctures of abscesses or swabs) and systemic samples (i.e. blood cultures). The clinical condition also determines the type of samples to be obtained. In cases of systemic involvement, blood
