Intravenous drug users are at increased risk for developing right-sided infective endocarditis involving the tricuspid and pulmonary valves. Isolated pulmonary valve endocarditis in intravenous drug users is very rare, and these patients often have more complications, such as pulmonary embolism, sepsis, and pneumonia. We report a case with pulmonary valve endocarditis and extensive pulmonary complications, including sepsis, septic emboli, pneumonia, and pneumothorax. Early identification of pulmonic valve endocarditis and treatment with appropriate antibiotics with or without surgical management should provide better outcomes, and clinicians need to think about pulmonary valve endocarditis in patients with complex respiratory presentations...

Lemierre's syndrome is characterized by an oropharyngeal infection with internal jugular vein thrombosis followed by metastatic infections in other organs. This infection is usually caused by Fusobacterium spp. In this report, we present a rare case of Klebsiella pneumoniae-associated Lemierre's syndrome in a patient with poorly-controlled diabetes mellitus. The infection was complicated by septic emboli in many organs, which led to the patient's death, despite combined antibiotics, anticoagulant therapy, and surgical intervention...

INTRODUCTION: Infection by Fusobacterium necrophorum, a Gram negative anaerobic bacteria, can lead to the development of Lemierre's syndrome, an uncommon but potentially fatal infection of the internal jugular vein. Since the introduction of antibiotics, the morbidity and mortality associated with this syndrome have been dramatically reduced. This syndrome is characterized by a pharyngeal infection, which leads to the development of septic thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein with septic emboli, which usually spread into the lung...

BACKGROUND: Identifying predictors of mortality and surgical complications has led to outcome improvements for a variety of surgical conditions. However, similar work has yet to be done for factors affecting outcomes of emergency general surgery (EGS). The objective of this study was to determine the predictors of in-hospital complications and mortality among EGS patients. METHODS: The Nationwide Inpatient Sample (2003-2011) was queried for patients with conditions encompassing EGS as determined by the American Association for Surgery of Trauma, categorizing them into predefined EGS groups using DRG International Classification of Diseases-9th Rev...

Lemierre's syndrome (LS) is a rare life-threatening infective condition typically starting with an oropharyngeal infection causing thrombophlebitis and metastatic abscesses. The most common aetiology of LS is Fusobacterium necrophorum; however, it can also occur after infection with other organisms. LS mainly affects young healthy adults. The initial infection site can be in the head and neck or in the abdomen. The morbidity rate of this disease is high despite aggressive treatments. In this article, we report a 63-year-old male patient with uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, presenting with Klebsiella pneumoniae infection-induced necrotizing fasciitis on the right side of the neck, leading to LS...

Lemierre syndrome is characterized by acute septic thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein (IJV) that develops after an oropharyngeal infection, and can be complicated by septic emboli to lungs and other organs. The most frequent causative agent is Fusobacterium necrophorum, an anaerobic bacillus found in normal oropharyngeal flora. Staphylococcus aureus has emerged as a cause of Lemierre syndrome in the last decade. We report a case of a 24-year-old man who developed septic IJV thrombosis and necrotizing pneumonia due to S...

Fusobacterium necrophorum is a non-spore-forming gram-negative anaerobic bacillus that may be the causative agent of localized or severe systemic infections. Systemic infections due to F.necrophorum are known as Lemierre's syndrome, postanginal sepsis or necrobacillosis. The most common clinical course of severe infections in humans is a progressive illness from tonsillitis to septicemia in previously healthy young adults. A septic thrombophlebitis arising from the tonsillar veins and extending into the internal jugular vein leads to septicemia and septic emboli contributing to the development of necrotic abscesses especially in lungs and other tissues such as liver, bone and joints...

BACKGROUND: Though USA300 community-onset methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CO-MRSA) has emerged as a major public health concern in the United States, its relative virulence is unknown. We sought to evaluate if the USA300 strain of CO-MRSA causes more severe infections than other MRSA (ie, USA100, -500, -800, and others) strains. METHODS: An epidemiologic study was conducted from 2000 to 2007 to measure rates of severe infection. A matched case-control study was conducted from 2004 to 2006 to assess the relationship of strain type, syndrome, and severity of infection...

Daptomycin has demonstrated clinical efficacy in the treatment of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus-associated bacteremia and right-sided infective endocarditis. Although daptomycin is not approved for treatment of gram-positive pneumonia, clinical evidence suggests that it may be effective therapy for S. aureus-associated septic pulmonary emboli (SPE). We present our clinical experience with the use of daptomycin in combination with rifampin in four patients with SPE in the absence of infective endocarditis...

A 67-year-old male patient presented with recurrent fever and septic emboli due to an aorto-duodenal fistula after previous aortobiiliac bypass grafting with suspected graft infection. Imaging by ultrasound, computed tomography scan (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) could not confirm graft infection. A scan using 2-deoxy-2-fluoro-[18F]-d-glucose positron emission tomography CT (18F-FDG-PET/CT) revealed a pathological uptake. The bifurcated graft was removed und revascularization was performed by axillobifemoral bypass grafting...

Lemierre's syndrome is a potentially fatal disease that usually presents with oropharyngeal infection, followed by sepsis, thrombosis of the internal jugular vein and septic emboli. Most cases are caused by the Gram-negative, anaerobic Fusobacterium necrophorum. We present two patients with an atypical presentation of Lemierre's syndrome and a review. These cases illustrate that a positive blood culture for F. necrophorum, even without the presence of clinical symptoms pointing towards thrombosis of the internal jugular vein, justifies further radiological testing for thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein...

OBJECTIVE: Wegener's granulomatosis is an uncommon necrotizing vasculitis having variable presentations in the chest that are best depicted on high-resolution CT. Imaging findings may include nodules, which may cavitate; ground-glass opacity secondary to pulmonary hemorrhage; and airway stenoses and ulcerations. Active Wegener's granulomatosis can mimic pneumonia, septic emboli, and metastases. CONCLUSION: This article will illustrate the high-resolution CT findings of Wegener's granulomatosis in the chest...
