The incidence of lung abscess acquired in the community is unknown, but this is a common clinical problem encountered in developing countries. The incidence of lung abscess was high in the pre-antibiotic era but the advent of susceptible antibiotics it has reduced with an equal fall in mortality to 8.7%. With the emerging antibiotic resistance and change in the trends of bacteriological profile causing lung abscess, it is the need of time to reevaluate lung abscess.
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.
Morbidity following pancreatectomy is commonly due to leakage of exocrine secretions resulting in abscess or pancreatic fistula (PF). Previously, we authored a double-blind randomized controlled trial demonstrating perioperative pasireotide administration lowers abscess or PF formation by over 50%. Accordingly, we adopted pasireotide usage as standard practice following pancreatectomy in October 2014 and hypothesized a similar PF/abscess rate reduction would be observed.
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...
The spleen is the most common abdominal site for systemic septic emboli that often complicate infective endocarditis. Management of an embolic splenic abscess usually involves surgical splenectomy or image-guided drainage, but the natural history of splenic abscess without drainage is unknown. We describe the successful conservative treatment of a large complex splenic abscess with antibiotics alone in a patient with aortic valve infective endocarditis who required emergent valve replacement surgery. Previo...
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.
Cutaneous lymphomas represent a unique group of lymphomas. Cutaneous lymphomas are the second most frequent extra nodal involvement; gastrointestinal involvement being the most frequent (Malkan et al. ). To the best of our knowledge few cases of cutaneous relapse of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) have been reported where there was an absence of primary cutaneous involvement.
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 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.
Intramural gastric abscess is a rare clinical condition. It is frequently neglected because of the absence of specific clinical symptoms and misdiagnosed due to the difficulty in differentiating a benign lesion from a malignant one on the gastric wall. Several imaging techniques are helpful for identifying an intramural gastric abscess. Nevertheless, a definite diagnosis is still challenging, and unnecessary surgery is sometimes performed. Therefore, more information regarding case experiences should be sha...
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 aim of this study were to describe the technique of percutaneous drainage of iliopsoas abscess, and to discuss the benefits of using this minimally-invasive tool. A single center study with retrospective analysis of patients with psoas abscess confirmed by imaging scans, sent to the interventional medicine center and submitted to computed tomography and ultrasound-guided percutaneous drainage, from November 2013 to August 2016. Seven patients underwent percutaneous drainage of psoas abscess in this peri...
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).

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.
Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is common congenital abnormality of gastrointestinal tract, only about 6.4% of patients become symptomatic. A smaller minority develop potential fatal complications such as hemorrhage, perforation, abscess, and bowel obstruction.

To assess the clinical course, surgical and fertility outcomes of patients diagnosed with tuboovarian abscess (TOA) following fertility treatment.
Mastocytosis is a rare and multifaceted disease group characterized by mast cell accumulation in the skin and/or internal organs. In its most common form solitary or widespread, often itchy, red-brown skin lesions appear in childhood or during adulthood (cutaneous mastocytosis). The skin lesions are not always easy to recognize by medical professionals; hence, a correct diagnosis is often delayed. In children, the lesions tend to resolve before puberty, whereas most post-adolescent patients experience a chr...
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.
