REVIEW
Walid L Dajer-Fadel, Rubén Argüero-Sánchez, Carlos Ibarra-Pérez, Francisco P Navarro-Reynoso
OBJECTIVE: To describe and clarify management protocols in relation to spontaneous pneumomediastinum, and try to integrate criteria on this subject. BACKGROUND: Thoracic physicians are faced with patients who present with gas in the mediastinum, frequently without an obvious etiologic factor. Published material contains heterogeneous information from which different conclusions can be drawn. METHODS: In a Medline search from 1990 to 2012, we collected data on mortality, morbidity, signs, symptoms, etiologic factors, and diagnostic methods...

Mediastinal infections usually originate from postoperative complications or in a descending manner from a cervical infectious process; few reports have emerged describing an ascending trajectory. A 56-year-old woman with a Huang class 1 left emphysematous pyelonephritis was referred due to a progression of an ascending necrotizing mediastinitis. A left posterolateral thoracotomy was performed, drainage and thorough lavage were carried out with a successful outcome. We believe this is the first reported case of ascending necrotizing mediastinitis secondary to an emphysematous renal infection...

BACKGROUND: Descending necrotizing mediastinitis is a dreadful disease with a high mortality rate, particularly when below the tracheal carina. This study describes the epidemiologic, clinical, and paraclinical features of patients treated for this condition. METHODS: We performed a single-center retrospective descriptive review of 60 patients with descending necrotizing mediastinitis below the tracheal carina, who were treated during a 7-year period, the largest study in the last 50 years...

Descending necrotizing mediastinitis is usually associated with cervical or odontogenic infections. We describe a patient with blunt trauma to the chest 2 years earlier, and a slowly developing chest wall hematoma 18 months prior to admission, complicated by chronic sternoclavicular joint osteomyelitis, eventually leading to descending mediastinitis. Thoracotomy with drainage of the mediastinal spaces and multiple procedures for the sternoclavicular joint infection were successful. The rarity of this association and undefined optimal management prompted this report...

Descending necrotizing mediastinitis has been thoroughly described in the past, but we could not find a detailed description of the technique to perform adequate drainage and lavage of all the mediastinal and thoracic spaces. We describe the procedure as we perform it, emphasizing the sites for incision and proper drainage of all the mediastinal compartments and the contralateral thoracic cavity.

Lipomas are benign mesenchymal tumors that develop in areas of abundant adipose tissue. Due to the fatty composition of the breast, difficulties in diagnosis, treatment, and reconstruction are often encountered. We report a case of a 55-year-old female with a giant tumor of the right breast that comprised most of its mass, causing breast asymmetry. A thorough preoperative evaluation, followed by an uneventful difficult surgical resection and reconstruction, resulted in diagnosis of a benign lipoma. The case prompted this report because of its challenging size, location, diagnosis, and reconstructive solution...

A 58-year-old man with a history of Ludwig's angina was admitted with a spinal cord abscess at the level of C2-T1 and associated osteomyelitic destruction of vertebral bodies, spinal cord compression, and secondary quadriparesis, followed by descending mediastinitis. A right posterolateral thoracotomy and a cervicotomy drained purulent exudates. A tracheostomy was performed, and the patient was discharged after 84 days.

A 22-year-old man with varicella had associated cervical enlargement, right upper thoracic anterior and suprascapular cellulitis, and mediastinitis. A tracheostomy, right posterolateral thoracotomy, cervicotomy, and upper thoracic fasciotomy were performed 14 h after admission, draining purulent exudates from all sites. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 22.

We report the case of a 42-year old diabetic male presenting with erythema of the neck and anterior right thoracic region secondary to the application of an ointment derived from rattlesnakes, progressing to a full-blown necrotizing fasciitis in a short period of time, with associated mediastinitis, thrombocytopaenia and sepsis. The patient died despite aggressive multidisciplinary medical and surgical treatment. We present this case due to the unusual aetiology and fulminating course.
