Approach to the Patient with a Skin and Soft Tissue Infection

Cervical suppurative lymphadenitis in children: microbiology, primary sites of infection, and evaluation of antibiotic treatment

S. aureus was the predominant pathogen in paediatric CSL at all cervical levels, and even in cases with evidence of primary site infection not normally associated with S. a Aureus, based on evaluation of the clinical outcomes.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Lip Infections.

Analysis of the Microbial Landscape of Infection Site and the Effectiveness of Antibiotic and Immunotherapy in Patients with Diabetic Foot

Positive dynamics was noted: subsiding of the inflammatory process, cleansing of the wound from a purulent-necrotic substrate, and early epithelialization of the wounds was observed in patients with diabetic foot.

Interactions Between Atopic Dermatitis and Staphylococcus aureus Infection: Clinical Implications

Understanding of S. aureus could provide us with ways to manage S.aureus colonization more effectively in AD patients, including microbiome transplant, monoclonal antibodies against virulent toxins, vaccines and recombinant phage endolysin.

Advances in Antimicrobial Microneedle Patches for Combating Infections

In the present review, skin anatomy and its barriers along with skin infection are discussed, and potential strategies for designing antimicrobial microneedles and their targeted therapy are outlined.

Efficacy of Lazolex® Gel in the Treatment of Herpes Simplex Mucocutaneous Infections and the Prevention of Recurrences: A Pilot Study

Topical treatment with Lazolex® Gel applied to lesions four times a day for 10 days was shown to be effective and safe in the treatment of herpes simplex mucocutaneous infections and dramatically reduced the rate of recurrence.



Intertrigo and secondary skin infections.

Candidal intertrigo is a superficial inflammatory dermatitis occurring on two closely opposed skin surfaces as a result of moisture, friction, and lack of ventilation that can cause skin breakdown and create an entry point for secondary fungal and bacterial infections.

Clinical Syndromes Associated with Adult Pneumococcal Cellulitis

A high degree of suspicion and early aggressive management is needed for those presenting with cellulitis characterized by bullae and violaceous color, and in contrast to other common bacterial etiologies, pneumococcal cellulitis is frequently associated with blood stream invasion, tissue necrosis and supporative complications.

Impetigo: an update

Impetigo, a bacterial infection of the superficial layers of the epidermis, is a common childhood disorder and has three clinical varieties: impetigo contagiosa, common impetIG, and bullous impetiosa.

Linezolid versus Vancomycin in Treatment of Complicated Skin and Soft Tissue Infections

The results of this study demonstrate that linezolid therapy is well tolerated, equivalent to vancomycin in treating CSSTIs, and superior to vanxellicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in the treatment ofCSSTIs due to MRSA.

Skin and Soft-Tissue Infections Caused by Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus

A 37-year-old man presents for the evaluation of localized swelling and tenderness of the left leg just below the knee. He suspects this lesion developed after a spider bite, although he did not see

This guideline addresses the wide array of SSTIs that occur in this population and emphasizes the importance of clinical skills in promptly diagnosing SSTI, identifying the pathogen, and administering effective treatments in a timely fashion.

Tinea Capitis

Although the oral antifungal agents are the most important aspect of therapy, adjunctive therapy may be beneficial and either a short burst of oral corticosteroids or topical cortICosteroids in patients with the most severe disease is recommended.

Diagnosis and management of tinea infections.

Oral terbinafine is first-line therapy for tinea capitis and onychomycosis because of its tolerability, high cure rate, and low cost, however, kerion should be treated with griseofulvin unless Trichophyton has been documented as the pathogen.

Guidelines for the management of periorbital cellulitis/abscess.

Simple guidelines suggested to manage orbital and periorbital swelling secondary to acute sinusitis, including their initial assessment, investigations with particular reference to the indications and timing of CT scanning, antimicrobial therapy and the type of surgery are reviewed.
