OBJECTIVE Actinomyces spp. are often underestimated as causes of central nervous system infection because they are not looked for routinely and are difficult to detect. We try to determine the optimal management of these problematic intracranial infectious diseases in neurosurgical practice. METHODS Five cases of intracranial suppurations due to(More)
INTRODUCTION This study aims to determine the Acinetobacter sp clinical isolates frequency and its antibiotic susceptibility pattern by comparing results obtained from the Intensive Care Units (ICUs) to that of other units at the Mohammed V Military Teaching Hospital in Rabat.

We report a case of osteitis in a 46-year-old patient, caused by Pseudomonas stutzeri following an open fracture of the left femur. The patient was treated with 1g ceftazidime every 8 hours for two weeks combined with 160 mg/day of amikacin for 10 days. A second-line ofloxacin oral treatment at 400 mg/day was then given during 4 weeks. Surgical treatment(More)
