REVIEW

The number and complexity of endovascular procedures performed via either arterial or venous access are steadily increasing. Albeit associated with higher morbidity compared to the radial approach, the traditional common femoral artery remains the preferred access site in a variety of cardiac, aortic, oncologic and peripheral vascular procedures. Both transarterial and venous cannulation (for electrophysiology, intravenous laser ablation and central catheterisation) at the groin may result in potentially severe vascular access site complications (VASC)...

Hui Yuan, Rong Gao
OBJECTIVES: This study sought to investigate the impact of involvement of the infrahyoid neck space on the management of non-odontogenic DNI. METHOD: Eighty-one patients treated for non-odontogenic DNI over 5 years were retrospectively recruited into this study. Demographics, etiology, radiology results, treatments, duration/cost of hospital stay, and complications were recorded. Differences between DNIs with and without infrahyoid involvement, as defined based on an anatomical chart, were analyzed...

Compartment syndrome (CS) is a threatening condition characterized by excessive tissue pressure accumulation associated with acute trauma. Compartment syndrome causes a significant reduction in blood flow with subsequent muscle and nerve ischemic necrosis. Recently, reports have described the importance of intramuscular pressure measurements as a basis for CS diagnosis. Unfortunately, the measuring devices that were utilized produced results with unsatisfactory reliability, making a diagnosis and subsequent treatment challenging...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with burn wounds of the lower extremities are at increased risk of developing cellulitis. The probability of developing burn-associated cellulitis is presumed to be correlated with a medical history of diabetes, the etiology of the burn, delay in hospitalization of the patient during their initial presentation, and depth of the burn itself. This study aims to identify factors that place patients at increased risk for developing lower extremity burn wound cellulitis...

Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare proliferative disorder, which commonly arises in the bone and may involve other systems. To date, the diagnosis of temporal bone LCH remains a challenge as it may masquerade as a common ear infection. We report a case of a child who presented to us with persistent bilateral ear discharge for four months and was not responding to treatment. Her condition subsequently worsened, with clinical features and radiological findings suggestive of mastoid cellulitis. Nevertheless, further histopathology study revealed LCH...

Sporotrichosis is the most common subcutaneous or implantation mycosis in Mexico. The case of a preauricular cutaneous-fixed sporotrichosis simulating atypical bacterial cellulitis is reported in an elderly patient with no history of trauma. The biopsy showed a suppurative granuloma with scarce yeast. Sporothrix schenckii was identified in the culture and confirmed by molecular biology. She was treated with itraconazole and a clinical and mycological cure was obtained. The case of atypical presentation is presented, coming from a semi-arid zone with extreme weather...

BACKGROUND: Phosphoinositide 3-kinase α (PI3Kα) is an attractive target for anticancer drug design. OBJECTIVES: Target compounds were designed to probe the significance of alcohol and imine moieties tailored on a benzoin scaffold to better understand the structure activity relation (SAR) and improve their biological activity as anticancer compounds. METHODS: Chemical synthesis of the targeted compounds, biological evaluation tests against human colon adenocarcinoma (HCT-116), breast adenocarcinoma (MCF-7), and breast carcinoma (T47D) cell lines, as well as Glide docking studies were employed in this investigation...

CLINICAL CASE: A 10-year-old girl was seen with a 3-week history of right upper lid swelling and with no other symptoms or fever. There was no recent history of sinusitis, trauma, or previous infection involving the periorbital area, or response to oral antibiotic treatment. Orbital computed tomography showed a lesion involving the upper margin of the orbit, and bone destruction at the orbital roof. Biopsy performed revealed the presence of Langerhans cell Histiocytosis. The lesion was surgically debulked and corticosteroids were used intra-operatively...

Cutaneous cryptococcosis is usually secondary to the hematogenous dissemination of pulmonary or meningeal Cryptococcus neoformans. Primary cutaneous cryptococcosis (PCC) is a rare form of the infection, typically caused by direct inoculation from trauma to the skin [1]. Most cases of PCC present as a localized cellulitis, abscess, nodule, or ulceration. Herein, we present a case of a rapidly spreading cellulitis characterized by bullae and ulceration, caused by direct inoculation from a fall.

Methotrexate toxicity in mucocutaneous areas is usually not associated with tissue eosinophilia. We describe a case of acute methotrexate-induced mucocutaneous erosions with interface dermatitis and eosinophils. A 76-year-old African-American woman with a history of bullous pemphigoid on methotrexate therapy presented with lower extremity cellulitis, developing oral and cutaneous erosions during hospitalization after daily dosage of methotrexate. Shallow circular cutaneous erosions were found on chest, abdomen and limbs...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Our previously published data suggested several risk factors for infection after the Nuss procedure. We aimed to further elucidate these findings. METHODS: An IRB-approved (14-03-WC-0034), single institution, retrospective review was performed to evaluate the incidence of postoperative Nuss bar infections associated with seven variables. These were subjected to bivariate and multivariable analyses. A broad definition of infection was used including cellulitis, superficial infection with drainage, or deep infection occurring at any time postoperatively...

Cellulitis is a frequently encountered condition, but remains a challenging clinical entity. Under and overtreatment with antimicrobials frequently occurs and mimics cloud the diagnosis. Typical presentation, microbiology and management approaches are discussed.

We describe a 53-year-old man presenting at the emergency department with sepsis and a swollen right hand. Over the course of a day a large haemorrhagic bulla developed on the back of the hand. The blood cultures were positive for Streptococcus pyogenes. Our diagnosis was bullous cellulitis leading to S. pyogenes sepsis.

Phlegmonous gastritis is a rare but often fatal acute pyogenic infection of the stomach. We herein report three cases of phlegmonous gastritis with different causes: the long-term placement of a nasogastric feeding tube, bacteremia associated with cellulitis in a diabetic patient, and an adverse reaction to paclitaxel/carboplatin chemotherapy for cancer of unknown primary cause, which were classified as primary, secondary, and idiopathic types, respectively. Coping with the increasing morbidity rate associated with the diverse background of such patients requires a thorough understanding of the clinical features and image findings associated with this entity...

Background: Poor eating habits, a sedentary lifestyle, and limited physical activity are predisposing factors for the development of cellulite. The PnKCelulitis® Programme (Pronokal Group, Barcelona, Spain) is a new approach to the treatment of cellulite that combines dietary guidelines, physical exercise, and the application of an anti-cellulite cream. Objective: We sought to objectively and via cutaneous ultrasound assess the benefit of the new multidisciplinary anti-cellulite treatment program and to evaluate any visual changes in the appearance of the skin...

BACKGROUND: Ocular involvement in melioidosis is rare and has devastating outcomes. Although there have been few reports on the condition, Khon Kaen, a city in northeast Thailand, has been called the "capital of melioidosis" due to the high prevalence of the condition in the region. We retrospectively reviewed all admitted cases of melioidosis with ocular involvement from the two largest hospitals in Khon Kaen. We reviewed cases from Srinagarind Hospital (a university hospital) of patients admitted between 1993 and 2016 and from Khon Kaen Hospital (a provincial hospital) of patients who presented from 2012 to 2016...
