Background and Objectives. Extended spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) production is increasing all over the world, and organisms other than E. coli and K. pneumoniae are acquiring this character. ESBL production is detectable by automation, E-test, double disk diffusion (DDD), and PCR. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of ESBL production among clinical isolates of gram-negative rods, and to evaluate the effectiveness of augmentation of clavunate with Cefotaxime, Ceftazoxime, Aztreonam, Ceftriaxone, and Cefpodoxime in detecting ESBL production...

The redundant bacterial growth syndrome in the small intestine is associated with the increased total semination of over 10(5) CFU/ml presented by enterobacteria, bacteroids, clostridia, fusobacteria, etc. It is developed at the dysfunction of the gastrointestinal tract, insufficient bacteria inhibition at the time when they come from the large intestine (atony, stasis, bypasses) and is accompanied by the enhanced intestinal barrier permeability along with chronic diarrhea and intoxication. Intestinal absorption disorders cause B12-deficiency anemia, hypovitaminosis and protein deficiency...

Necrotizing soft tissue infections constitute some of the most potentially threatening infections that may be acquired in the community or in the hospital milieu as they are associated with a high mortality rate. In most cases they are produced by Streptococcus pyogenes. We report a case of a necrotizing soft tissue infection caused by Streptococcus agalactiae (group B beta hemolytic streptococcus) that involved the leg of an elderly man with chronic lymphatic leukemia and diabetes mellitus. The lesions notably improved after initiating intravenous antibiotic treatment with amoxicillin-clavunate and clindamycin...
