Breast abcess

Søren Kjær, Bo Rud, Morten Bay-Nielsen
INTRODUCTION: Subcutaneous trunk abscesses are frequent, and current treatment options generally involve incision. By contrast, the standard care for breast abscesses is ultrasound-guided drainage. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of ultrasound-guided drainage combined with antibiotics in the treatment of subcutaneous abscesses on the trunk. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In this prospective study, 27 patients were treated with ultrasound-guided needle aspiration and oral antibiotics...

BACKGROUND: Kingella kingae is the second most common pathogen causing paediatric arthritis and is described to be the causative bacteria in some paediatric osteomyelitis. Its microbiological detection is particularly difficult due to its slow growing. To our best knowledge this is the first case description of osteomyelitis pubis caused by this microorganism. CASE PRESENTATION: We report the unusual case of pubic osteomyelitis with soft tissue abcess caused by Kingella kingae in an adult patient of 66 years with a history of end-stage renal disease and breast carcinoma...

Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic and debilitating inflammatory disease. It presents as recurrent abcesses, sinus tracts and scarring. The condition usually develops in the axillae and groins, and more rarely involves the breasts, perineum and buttocks. There are many myths around hidradenitis suppurativa including its origin and pathomechanisms. Some antibiotics as well as corticosteroids and other immune downregulators are poorly effective in this stubborn condition. By contrast, TNF-alpha antagonists appear promising...

This is a case report of a four week old newborn, presenting with a red and swollen right breast gland. Clinical examination and ultrasound confirmed the diagnosis of a suppurative mastitis. The abcess was incised and drained and systemic antibiotic therapy started. Staphylococcus aureus was isolated from the culture. The important aspects of aetiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy of suppurative mastitis in the newborn are discussed in a short literature review.

Various cutaneous side effects, including nail changes, have been associated with taxane chemotherapeutic agents, but usually docetaxel has been implicated. We report a patient with acute paronychia due to paclitaxel administered for treatment of breast cancer.

AIM: Sentinel axillary lymph node (SALN) detection is a new technique. Surgeons must progress up a learning curve in order to guarantee quality and safety equivalent to axillary lymphadenectomy. To ensure accurate staging of patients this learning curve must include SALN detection and an axillary lymphadenectomy. The aim of our work was to validate the principles and evaluate the consequences of learning curve for SALN detection from a prospective series of 200 consecutive patients. METHOD: Prospective assessment was made of the detection and false negative rates, post operative morbidity as abcess and seroma, and length of hospital stay...

Retrospective analysis of 25 pyogenic brain abcesses diagnosed by computed tomography (CT) revealed relatively specific morphologic characteristics of these infections. The ability to obtain an early accurate diagnosis resulted in a dramatic decrease in patient morbidity and mortality. Repeated examinations by CT permitted close monitoring of the response of the abscess to antibiotic therapy. In some instances the need for surgical intervention was eliminated or the surgical approach was modified as a result of these studies...
