121. Treatment and recommendations for homeless people with Opioid Use Disorders

-medical interventions for this population. The recommendations in this document specify what experienced providers and recipients of homeless services believe works best, with the realistic understanding that limited resources, fragmented health care delivery systems, and loss to follow-up often compromise adherence to optimal clinical practices. We hope these recommendations provide helpful guidance to health care professionals, and that they will contribute to improvements in both quality of care (...) providers and recipients gave generously of their time to formulate guidance for practitioners less experienced in the care of patients whose comorbidities and limited resources, both financial and social, are among the causes and consequences of homelessness. In addition, the Advisory Committee would like to thank the following individuals for reviewing and commenting on draft recommendations prior to publication: ?

The microorganisms causing infections are usually Gram-positive bacteria residing on the patient’s skin, most often coagulase-negative staphylococci and Staphylococcus aureus. In addition, metastatic colonization of the device from a distant site of infection (Gastrointestinal and urinary tract, wound etc.) may occur. Figure 1.

On admission (...) slowly improved. He was discharged after 1.5 months of hospitalisation. On follow-up 2 months later, the patient was asymptomatic with normalized biochemistry and ultrasound showed complete regression of the abscess.This is the first case of documented Eikenella corrodens concurrent liver abscess and endocarditis. The case report highlights that Eikenella corrodens should be considered as a cause of liver abscess. Empirical treatment of pyogenic liver abscess will most often cover Eikenella corrodens
