A Rare Cause of Pyogenic Flexor Tenosynovitis: Nocardia nova.

07:00 EST 15th January 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "A Rare Cause of Pyogenic Flexor Tenosynovitis: Nocardia nova."

Infection complicates approximately 5% of open trigger digit releases. Both superficial and deep infections may occur. We present a unique case of a cactus farmer who underwent an uneventful thumb trigger finger release and subsequently developed pyogenic flexor tenosynovitis and acute carpal tunnel syndrome resulting from Nocardia nova infection.

Typically, IMMUNOGLOBULIN M levels are low and IMMUNOGLOBULIN A and IMMUNOGLOBULIN E levels are elevated. Lymphoreticular malignancies are common.

A powerful flexor of the thigh at the hip joint (psoas major) and a weak flexor of the trunk and lumbar spinal column (psoas minor). Psoas is derived from the Greek "psoa", the plural meaning "muscles of the loin". It is a common site of infection manifesting as abscess (PSOAS ABSCESS). The psoas muscles and their fibers are also used frequently in experiments in muscle physiology.
