Nonpurulent lower extremity cellulitis (NLEC) is a common clinical diagnosis, with β-hemolytic streptococci and Staphylococcus aureus considered to be the most frequent causes. In 1999, the US Public Health Service alerted clinicians to the presence of community-acquired methicillin-resistant S aureus (CA-MRSA) infections in 4 children in the upper Midwest. Since then, it has become a well-recognized cause of skin and soft-tissue infections, in particular, skin abscess. A previous population-based study of NLEC in Olmsted County, Minnesota, reported an unadjusted incidence rate of 199 per 100,000 person-years in 1999, but it is unknown whether CA-MRSA subsequently has affected NLEC incidence...

Staphylococcus aureus is a clinically significant human pathogen that causes infectious diseases ranging from skin and soft tissue infections (SSTI), healthcare associated infections (HAI) to potentially fatal bacteraemia and endocarditis. Nasal carriage of S. aureus, especially persistent carriage, is associated with an increased risk of subsequent infection, particularly nosocomial and surgical site infections (SSI), usually via autoinfection. NP108 is a cationic antimicrobial polymer composed of Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) amino acid building blocks...

Staphylococcus aureus is a very important human pathogen that causes significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. Several vaccine clinical trials based on generating antibody against staphylococcal surface polysaccharides or proteins have been unsuccessful. A killed whole cell lysate preparation (SaWCA) was made by lysing a USA 300 strain with lysostaphin followed by sonication and harvest of the supernatant fraction. Immunization with SaWCA and cholera toxin (CT) generated robust IL-17A but relatively modest antibody responses, and provided protection in the skin abscess but not in the dermonecrosis or invasive infection model...

The hyperimmunoglobulin E syndromes (HIESs) are very rare immunodeficiency syndromes with multisystem involvement, including immune system, skeleton, connective tissue, and dentition. HIES are characterized by the classic triad of high serum levels of immunoglobulin E (IgE), recurrent staphylococcal cold skin abscess, and recurrent pneumonia with pneumatocele formation. Most cases of HIES are sporadic although can be inherited as autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive traits. A fundamental immunologic defect in HIES is not clearly elucidated but abnormal neutrophil chemotaxis due to decreased production or secretion of interferon γ has main role in the immunopathogenesis of syndrome, also distorted Th1/Th2 cytokine profile toward a Th2 bias contributes to the impaired cellular immunity and a specific pattern of infection susceptibility as well as atopic-allergic constitution of syndrome...

A multidrug-resistant, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) clone, PVL-positive ST772-MRSA-V, named the Bengal Bay clone, is emerging worldwide. In Norway, where MRSA prevalence is low, a sudden increase in ST772-MRSA-V initiated a nationwide molecular epidemiological study. Clinical data were obtained from the Norwegian Surveillance System for Communicable Diseases (MSIS). S. aureus isolates were characterised by antibiotic susceptibility profiles and comprehensive genotyping (spa typing, MLVA, DNA microarray)...

INTRODUCTION: The cutaneous abscess commonly occurs in the medical practice, its management being well known. However, atypical cases - multiple occurrence, recurrence and/or resistance to classical treatment can be very challenging for the physician. These cases can be addressed for consultation in several medical specialties depending the age of the patient and the site of the lesions. The systematization of the diagnostic approach would have a great impact for the clinical practice...

REVIEW
Benjamin A Lipsky, Michael H Silverman, Warren S Joseph
Schemes for classifying skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) pose limitations for clinicians and regulatory agencies. Diabetic foot infections (DFIs) are a subset of SSTIs. We developed and are proposing a classification to harmonize current schemes for SSTIs and DFIs. Existing schemes for classifying SSTIs are limited in both their usefulness to clinicians and to regulatory agencies. The guidelines on SSTI from the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and the guidance from the US Food and Drug Administration do not adequately address many types of wound infections...
