Abscess co-existing within a brain tumor is a rare entity. Case reports in literature primarily consist of sellar pathology and parenchymal lesions including meningioma, glioma, and metastases. We report a case of glioblastoma with an intra-tumoral abscess in a middle-aged lady with no prior invasive procedure or systemic focus of infection.
Surgical-site infection, spinal cord abscess, and catheter tip granuloma are known but rare complications of intrathecal drug delivery systems (IDDS). To date, there are no published cases of brain abscess in a patient with an IDDS. In this study, we report a case of a cancer patient with an IDDS for management of cancer pain who developed a brain abscess with profound mental status changes and clinical management challenges.
To investigate clinical features, treatment modality, and outcomes of patients with parotid abscess.
Duodenal perforation is a complication of endoscopic mucosal resection. Liver abscess secondary to iatrogenic perforation is extremely rare. A 43-year-old female visited the hospital to remove a sub-epithelial tumor on the duodenal bulb. After endoscopic mucosal resection with band ligation, duodenal perforation occurred. Endoscopic closure was performed successfully using a clipping device to manage duodenal perforation. After 4 weeks, the patient visited our outpatient clinic due to abdominal pain and fev...
Gastrointestinal foreign bodies are commonly encountered in clinical practice. However, although perforation of the gastrointestinal tract by a foreign body is not unusual, the formation of a hepatic abscess as a result of the migration of a foreign body is extremely rare. Patients usually present with atypical symptoms, and the treatment of such pyogenic liver abscesses presents a challenge. Here we report a case of hepatic abscess secondary to stomach perforation by a fish bone.
Though outcome of brain abscess has been improved due to stereotactic drainage and appropriate antibiotic treatment, late unprovoked seizure often occurs after the abscess is resolved. The purpose of this study is to reveal the factors related to the late unprovoked seizure and effect of steroid on the prevention of seizure.
Percutaneous drainage for pyogenic liver abscess has been considered the gold-standard approach for the treatment on almost of the cases. However, when percutaneous drainage fails or even in some especial situations, as multiloculate abscess, lobe or segment surgical resection can solve infectious clinical condition.
The diagnosis of lung abscess can be difficult to make and often requires imaging beyond plain chest x-ray. The decision to further image with computed tomography should be weighed against the risks of radiation exposure, especially in pediatric patients. In addition, the cost and potential impact on length of stay from obtaining computed tomography scans should be considered. In this report, we describe a case of lung abscess made immediately using point-of-care ultrasound in the emergency department. To o...
Congenital dermal sinuses (CDS) are uncommon lesions. They are most often noted in lumbosacral region and may lead to meningitis or spinal abscess. Intramedullary spinal cord abscess (IMSCA) due to CDS is rare and often co-exists with an inclusion tumor such as dermoid/epidermoid cyst.
Neck abscesses such as retropharyngeal, peritonsilar, and lateral pharyngeal are well described, typically cause a characteristic illness, and have a known epidemiology. We present a rare occurrence of case of confluent, mixed retropharyngeal, lateral pharyngeal, and peritonsilar abscess in a 9-month-old female infant. The symptoms at presentation were very mild and not expected in association with this extensive an abscess. The causative organism was methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
The disease of parapharyngeal abscess is well known to the otolaryngologist and is commonly managed via transoral, transcervical, or combined incision and drainage. We report a novel approach to an abscess that was drained through the external auditory canal (EAC). An otherwise healthy 2-year-old female presented with a 4-day history of fevers, decreased oral intake, neck stiffness, and voice changes. CT neck with contrast revealed a deep abscess in the left neck extending from the peritonsillar space into ...
The worldwide incidence of cutaneous melanoma (CM) has been continuously increasing over the last decades. Primary and secondary prevention, with attention to risk factors and early diagnosis, remain the cornerstone for reducing the burden of cutaneous melanoma. Detailed information with respect to clinical and pathological data on cutaneous melanoma is scarce in Brazil.
Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is a rare vasculitis affecting medium-sized vessels. Cutaneous PAN is a clinical variant, and we report the first case of empagliflozin-induced cutaneous PAN in a 69-year-old man. After starting empagliflozin, the patient presented with tender subcutaneous nodules on his legs, which showed a medium-sized vessel vasculitis on histopathology. Upon cessation of this medication, he had full resolution of these nodules. This case illustrates that empagliflozin can induce cutaneous PAN,...
Deep postanal abscess (DPA) comprises less than 15% of all types of anorectal abscess (1). The deep postanal space communicates on either side with the ischioanal fossa providing a pathway for abscess extension. A horseshoe extension with bilateral involvement of both ischioanal fossae secondary to a trans-sphincteric fistula is the most severe manifestation of this condition(2).

Subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus is a clinically distinct form of cutaneous lupus erythematosus, with age of onset typically in the second to fifth decades. Eleven cases have been reported in childhood, and we present the first known case of subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus in identical twins. Although flares are typically photo-induced, we present an annular eruption typical of subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus with concurrent pinworm infestation, with recurrence of disease with cutaneous ...
Prompt diagnosis and treatment are critical in spinal epidural abscess, as delay can lead to paralysis or death. The initial management decision for spinal epidural abscess is not always clear, with the literature showing conflicting results. When considering nonoperative management, it is crucial to avoid failure of treatment, given the neurologic compromise incurred through failure. Unfortunately, data regarding risk factors associated with failure are scarce.
Group A Streptococcus (GAS) is a rare cause of central nervous system infections. We describe 3 new cases of GAS brain abscess in previously healthy children treated by us between 2015-2016 and review the 5 cases reported in the literature since 1988. All 8 children received early empiric antibiotic therapy and surgical intervention, and 5 made a full recovery. GAS brain abscess is a rare infection; however its incidence may be rising. We suggest that if patients show symptoms such as fever, vomiting, and l...
A 14-year-old otherwise healthy boy presented with right-sided back pain following high fever. Abdominal computed tomography scan showed a large liver abscess. Klebsiella pneumoniae (KP) was rapidly identified from peripheral blood using the melting temperature mapping (Tm) method, which enables identification of pathogenic microorganisms within four hours after patient sample collection. He was diagnosed with pyogenic liver abscess (PLA) caused by KP on the day of admission. The KP was the hypervirulent (h...
Lung abscess was previously treated surgically, but is now mainly treated with antibiotics and ideally with direct drainage, although postural drainage canalso be used.
One of the most challenging tasks in dermatopathology practice is distinguishing fibroblastic, myofibroblastic, and smooth muscle differentiation in cutaneous spindle cells neoplasms. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
To assess the clinical course, surgical and fertility outcomes of patients diagnosed with tuboovarian abscess (TOA) following fertility treatment.
Recurrence of spinal epidural abscess (SEA) after treatment is an important cause of continued morbidity for patients.
Lipomatous neurofibroma (Lnfs) is a histopathological variant with adipocytes noted among cells of cutaneous neurofibromas. We aimed to investigate the prevalence and clinicopathological features of Lnfs of NF1-associated cutaneous neurofibromas and to review the literature systematically. We also evaluated the expression of leptin (a hormone involved in lipid metabolism) in neurofibromas to better understand the pathogenesis of Lnfs.
The objective of this study was to investigate the microbiological cultures and the management of acute ethmoiditis complicated by subperiosteal orbital abscess (SPOA) in a pediatric population.
