Report of Capnocytophaga sputigena primary iliopsoas abscess.

06:00 EDT 17th July 2010 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Report of Capnocytophaga sputigena primary iliopsoas abscess."

Iliopsoas abscess is usually secondary to the spread of infection from a contiguous focus. Primary disease is uncommon except in children where Staphylococcus aureus is the main pathogen. We report a 60 years old lady who developed primary iliopsoas abscess as a result of haematogenous spread of C. sputigena from palatal fistula and chronic sinusitis due to previous treatment for nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Pyomyositis due to unusual and fastidious Gram negative bacilli should be considered in patients with head and neck tumours who had previously received radiotherapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Accumulation of purulent EXUDATES beneath the DIAPHRAGM, also known as upper abdominal abscess. It is usually associated with PERITONITIS or postoperative infections.

Abscess of the PSOAS MUSCLES resulting usually from disease of the lumbar vertebrae, with the pus descending into the muscle sheath. The infection is most commonly tuberculous or staphylococcal.

A gram-negative gliding bacterium isolated from the oral cavity. It is a pathogen often causing PERIODONTITIS.

An abscess located in the abdominal cavity, i.e., the cavity between the diaphragm above and the pelvis below. (From Dorland, 27th ed)

Localized circumscribed purulent area of inflammation in the periodontal tissue. It is a derivative of marginal periodontitis and commonly associated with suprabony and infrabony pockets and interradicular involvements, in contrast to periapical abscess which is attributable to pulp necrosis.
