5101. Unusual presentation of B-cell lymphoma as a cutaneous abscess. (Abstract)

Unusual presentation of B-cell lymphoma as a cutaneous abscess. Cutaneous abscesses can result from many conditions and are primarily managed with incision, drainage and antibiotics, without the need for extensive diagnostic workup. We herein report a case of a B-cell lymphoma manifesting as an abscess on the back of a 67-year-old female. Standard therapies failed to improve her condition, and, by the time of tissue diagnosis, a greater than palm-sized necrotic ulcer eroding through skin (...) and fat, and into the psoas muscle had developed. Primary or secondary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas almost never lead to tissue necrosis but should be entertained in cases of abscesses or ulcers with unusual presentation.

5102. Metastatic tuberculous abscesses in an immunocompetent patient. (Abstract)

Metastatic tuberculous abscesses in an immunocompetent patient. The decreased incidence of infectious diseases in developed countries may make their diagnosis difficult. Cutaneous tuberculosis is an example of this fact. A 44-year-old man presented with two painful abscesses on his lower extremities, which developed into chronic ulcers. A cutaneous biopsy revealed necrotizing granulomas in the dermis. Ziehl-Neelsen and periodic acid-Schiff stain were negative. Mantoux test was positive. Tc-99m (...) scintigraphy showed increased uptake in the bone tissue of the left ankle and right tibiae, without direct relation to cutaneous lesions. Chest X-ray showed micronodular, apical, bilateral infiltrates, reduced volume of the right lung, and cavitation of the right superior lobe. Mycobacterium tuberculosis was grown from sputum and skin biopsy samples. Isoniazid, rifampin and pyrazinamide treatment for 2 months, followed by isoniazid and rifampin for 12 months, resulted in complete resolution. The clinical

after the steroid injection might have triggered the infection by T. asahii. A cutaneous abscess formation by T. asahii in an immunocompetent patient is an unusual cutaneous finding that to our knowledge has not been reported previously. The local immune reaction of the skin is important for the prevention of Trichosporon infection. (...) Cutaneous abscess by Trichosporon asahii developing on a steroid injection site in a healthy adult. We report a rare case of cutaneous abscess by Trichosporon asahii in an immunocompetent adult. A 31-year-old Korean woman presented to our hospital with a cutaneous abscess. She had received an intralesional steroid injection 4 months earlier on the site of a hypertrophic scar. Direct sequencing of the intergenic spacer regions of the rRNA genes identified T. asahii. The decreased local immunity

Treatment of hospitalized patients with complicated skin and skin structure infections: double-blind, randomized, multicenter study of piperacillin-tazobactam versus ticarcillin-clavulanate. The Piperacillin/Tazobactam Skin and Skin Structure Study Group. We compared the efficacy and safety of two beta-lactam-beta-lactamase inhibitor combinations, namely, piperacillin-tazobactam and ticarcillin-clavulanate, in the treatment of complicated bacterial infections of skin that required (...) hospitalization. The study was a randomized, double-blind, comparative trial involving 20 centers. The infections were classified as (i) cellulitis with drainage, (ii) cutaneous abscess, (iii) diabetic or ischemic foot infection, and (iv) infected wounds and ulcers with drainage. The clinical response rates were comparable for the two treatment regimens (61% of the patients were cured with piperacillin-tazobactam and ticarcillin-clavulanate and improvement was seen in 15 and 16% of patients treated

Multiple prostatic abscesses presenting with urethral discharge. Prostatic abscess has become less common, is now usually related to urinary tract infection, and is a rare cause of urethral discharge. The case is described of a man with prostatic abscesses caused by Staphylococcus aureus possibly related to recent skin abrasions. Transrectal ultrasound was used to make the diagnosis and to facilitate repeated drainage with a successful outcome.

5110. Open versus closed surgical treatment of abscesses: a controlled clinical trial. (Abstract)

abscesses to conventional packing. Abscesses requiring drainage under a general anaesthetic were considered for the study, excluding extensive, secondary and deep suppurations. In the 'open' group, the abscess was drained, curetted, irrigated, and then packed. Instead of packing, the cavity in the 'closed' group was obliterated using interrupted vertical mattress skin sutures with/without closed suction drainage. Other aspects of management were standardized.Of the 32 abscesses treated using the closed (...) Open versus closed surgical treatment of abscesses: a controlled clinical trial. Conventional drainage, curettage and packing of acute superficial abscesses has been challenged and in some centres replaced by curettage and primary closure under antibiotic cover. This technique has not been used widely in Australasia or North America, probably because of the lack of reassurance from local randomized trials.A randomized trial was conducted to compare the primary closure of acute superficial

5114. Microbiology of polymicrobial abscesses and implications for therapy. (Abstract)

Microbiology of polymicrobial abscesses and implications for therapy. Abscesses that develop as a result of introduction of the normal flora into a normally sterile body site are often polymicrobial. This review summarizes past studies published by our group on the microbiology of polymicrobial abscesses that occur at various body sites. Staphylococcus aureus and Group A beta-haemolytic streptococci are the most prevalent aerobes in skin and soft tissue abscesses and are isolated at all body (...) . These organisms probably reached these sites from the oral cavity, where they are part of the normal flora. Drainage of the abscess is the treatment of choice. Appropriate management of these mixed aerobic and anaerobic infections may also require the administration of antimicrobials that are effective against both the aerobic and anaerobic components of the infections.

5115. Spontaneous dermal abscesses and ulcers as a result of Serratia marcescens. (Abstract)

Spontaneous dermal abscesses and ulcers as a result of Serratia marcescens. Serratia sp have only rarely been reported as isolates from leg ulcers. We describe the case of a middle-aged man with a medical history significant for alcohol-induced cirrhosis who presented with rapidly progressive skin ulcers initially starting as purple nodules. These skin ulcers and underlying dermal abscesses were found to be a result of S marcescens, with the presumed portal of entry being a toe-web infection.

5117. Is antimicrobial therapy needed to manage uncomplicated skin and soft-tissue abscesses? (Abstract)

Is antimicrobial therapy needed to manage uncomplicated skin and soft-tissue abscesses? Community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) infections occur across a wide spectrum of epidemiologic groups, which range from medically underserved urban dwellers to professional athletes. CA-MRSA primarily causes skin and soft-tissue infections but it can also cause severe invasive disease, including necrotizing pneumonia and necrotizing fasciitis. In light of CA-MRSA's (...) proclivity to cause skin and soft-tissue abscesses and its capacity to inflict severe illness, investigators have been prompted to revisit the question of whether adjunctive antimicrobial therapy is necessary in the management of uncomplicated abscesses. This article evaluates the findings of a recently published randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial that aims to determine whether 'standard-of-care' antimicrobial therapy is needed after adequate surgical incision and drainage
