Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is one of the modern management therapies in patients with advanced heart failure, and it serves as a bridge to heart transplantation or even as destination therapy. However, it is burdened with a high risk of thromboembolic, hemorrhagic, and infectious complications despite prophylactic management. Splenic abscesses, as septic complications following implantation of mechanical ventricular support, have not yet been described in the literature. We report of a patient with severe left ventricular insufficiency (NYHA II/III), pulmonary hypertension, and arrhythmia who underwent implantation of the Heart Ware® pump for left ventricular support with simultaneous tricuspidvalvoplasty, as a bridge therapy to heart transplantation...

Erysipelas is a common skin infection. Hemorrhagic, bullous, abcessing and necrotic lesions are the major local complications. However, their occurrence factors are not clearly known. The aim of this study is to identify the risk factors associated with the occurrence of local complications of Erysipelas. Medical records from all patients hospitalized with local complications of erysipelas admitted to the Military Hospital of Rabat between 2005 and 2015, were retrospectively studied. Using an univariate and multivariate statistical study, the main characteristics were compared with those from patients with erysipelas without local complications...

Infective Endocarditis (IE) is an endocardial infection usually caused by bacteria that affects not only the native heart valves but also, with increasing frequency intravascular implanted devices and congenital heart diseases. Despite medical advances, IE remains a life-threatening disease with substantial morbidity and mortality. In Africa, its diagnosis and treatment are still a major challenge in clinical practice. The objective of this work was to study the epidemiological, clinical features, diagnostic techniques currently used in medical practice and the range of micro-organisms that are responsible...

Neonatal meningoencephalitis is a severe condition for the developing brain of a newborn. Radiologic findings of necrosis and liquefaction due to hemorrhagic meningoencephalitis may be confused with brain abcess. In this article, we report a neonate having liquefaction necrosis due to hemorrhagic meningoencephalitis mimicing intracranial abscess due to Proteus mirabilis. We would like to describe the clinical course and evolution of brain imaging and emphasize the importance of the serial MR imaging (MRI).

The efficacy of fibrinolytic therapy in two loculated abscesses is being reported. First case had a postoperative mediastinal abscess in left paraspinal location and the second case had two bilateral tubercular psoas abscesses. Both cases were managed with pig tail catheter drainage of abcesses and fibrinolytic therapy with instillation of urokinase followed by aspiration. Both cases had significant drainage, clinical and radiological resolution. There were no adverse effects in either case.

Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGP) is a rare histological subset of pyelonephritis characterized by being a chronic destructive granulomatous inflammation of the renal parenchyma. XGP is classified according to the extent of disease into two entities: within the renal cortex (focal or segmental XGP) or diffuse spread with pelvic communication (diffuse XGP). Although rare, XGP can have fatal complications including perinephric, psoas abscess, nephro-cutaneous fistula and reno-colic fistula. Only few studies have reported XGP complicated with psaos abcess and reno-colic fistula...

Over the last years a growing number of prosthetic heart valve (PHV) implantation procedures have been performed in sequence with the aging of the population and improving surgical techniques. Currently, echocardiography is the most important tool in the follow-up and evaluation of complications associated with the PHV (pannus, thrombus, endocarditis). However, echocardiographic examination of PHV associated disease may be hampered by poor acoustic window or scatter artefacts caused by the PHV. PHV related disease such as endocarditis is related with a poor prognosis, especially when complications such as periannular abcess formation occurs...

Melioidosis is due to Burkholderia pseudomallei and is known to be endemic in South-East Asia, while epidemiology of disease in Sub-Saharan Africa is still unclear. Prompt recognition of infection is crucial for adequate antibiotic treatment. Infection can lead to visceral abcesses and awareness of this complication is important for proper management.

With continuing worldwide growth in travel, timely information about the epidemiology of post-travel illness is important. Various travel-related surveillance systems have been established that provide these data. Knowledge about prevalences of important diseases in travelers and migrants can help in the differential diagnosis. On the other hand it has be kept in mind that also rare, but life-threatening diseases can be imported like leptospirosis, viral hemorrhagic fever or amebic liver abcess.

Dermatoses in returning travellers are common. These dermatoses are mainly infectious, the most common being bacterial infections of cosmopolitan origin (cellulitis, pyoderma and abcess). Others dermatoses are environmental diseases such as sunburns, arthropod-related reactions and superficial injuries. The most common tropical skin disease is hookworm-related cutaneous larva migrans but treating physicians may also face patients with localized cutaneous leishmaniasis, tungiasis, or myiasis. Also some systemic infections can be associated with skin manifestations...

The disseminated BCG infection is a rare and serious complication of bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccine. We report a case of probable disseminated BCG infection in a 10-month-old child who had been vaccinated by BCG vaccine at birth. No incident was noted on the first days of vaccination. At the age of 40 days, she developed left supra clavicular and axillar abcessed lymph nodes. She was treated by surgical flattening of the lymph adenopathy. The same lymph node recurred at the age of 6 months and was treated with surgery...
