3,879 Possible Causes for Cellulitis, Predisposition to UV Induced Malignancies, Retropharyngeal Abscess

  • Acute Sinusitis

    METHODS: Aspirates of 18 acutely infected maxillary sinuses that were associated with odontogenic infection in children who presented with periorbital cellulitis were processed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Herein, to our knowledge, we present the first case involving an otherwise healthy little girl with nasal septal abscess complicated with acute sinusitis and facial cellulitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract We report a case with orbital cellulitis and irreversible visual loss caused by asymptomatic acute sinusitis in a patient without symptoms or history of sinusitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Scarlet Fever

    We report three cases of septic scarlet fever due to Streptococcus pyogenes Group A (serotype M1/T1/OF-) cellulitis in healthy young adults.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Local complications include peritonsillar and retropharyngeal abscesses, and usually present with prolonged symptoms or localised pain; affected patients generally have a[doi.org] Possible suppurative complications include: Peritonsillar/retropharyngeal abscess Cervical lymphadenitis Mastoiditis Acute sinusitis Otitis media Pneumonia Septic arthritis[pharmaceutical-journal.com]

  • Peritonsillar Abscess

    Synergistic necrotizing cellulitis is a fulminant infection associated with spread along fascial plains, necrosis of connective tissue and muscle, and high mortality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe a case of a patient with a peritonsillar abscess that extended to the neck, producing bilateral retropharyngeal abscesses and myonecrosis of the strap muscles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Peritonsillar cellulitis can be treated with antibiotics alone, while a peritonsillar abscess should be drained.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pharyngitis due to Group A Beta-Hemolytic Streptococcus

    It is an important cause of pharyngitis, impetigo, cellulitis and necrotising fasciitis.[dermnetnz.org] […] complications Rheumatic fever Poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis Suppurative complications Cervical lymphadenitis Peritonsillar or retropharyngeal abscess Sinusitis Mastoiditis[aafp.org] , retropharyngeal abscess, viral pharyngitis [4] Prevention Handwashing [1] Treatment Paracetamol (acetaminophen), NSAIDs, antibiotics [1] [5] Frequency 5 to 40% of sore throats[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Retropharyngeal Abscess

    Computed tomography scan was the crucial tool for the diagnosis, notably to differentiate cellulitis from abscesses.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] a retropharyngeal abscess.[symptoma.com] KEYWORDS: T2 shine through; computed tomography; magnetic resonance imaging; retropharyngeal cellulitis; retropharyngeal edema[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tonsillar Abscess

    This case demonstrates the rare but potentially fatal condition of synergistic necrotizing cellulitis of the head and neck.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] lateral abscess) or nasopharyngeal (abscess retropharyngeal) flora.[tonsilitisunderstood.blogspot.com] Cellulitis causes general redness and swelling above the tonsil and on the soft palate.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Tonsillitis

    Infection can spread downwards into the mediastinum through the anatomic cervical spaces, causing widespread cellulitis, necrosis, abscess formation and sepsis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical and radiologic findings must be considered together prior to surgical drainage of a suspected retropharyngeal abscess.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in patients with recurrent NST, and an immune response can also be detected against P. intermedia and Fusobacterium nucleatum in patients who recovered from peritonsillar cellulitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Streptococcal Infection

    The results of the rapid antigen detection test for GAS (Strep A) taken at the PHCC were compared with the occurrence of peritonsillar abscess (PTA) and peritonsillar cellulitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He died before doctors could conduct an ultrasound on his throat, which would have revealed the retropharyngeal abscess, which ruptured a blood vessel.[dailymail.co.uk] Leading edge aspirate of cellulitis grew S pyogenes.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Parapharyngeal Abscess

    However, CT scan is not specific in differentiating an abscess from cellulitis or inflammatory edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Seven children were identified, 4 with retropharyngeal abscess and 3 with parapharyngeal abscess.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: Eighteen patients with proven parapharyngeal infection were included: 10 with proven abscess and 8 with cellulitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ludwig's Angina

    Frequently, submandibular cellulitis develops from an acute infection spreading from the lower molar teeth.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Based on clinical and operative findings, these abscesses were categorized as retropharyngeal abscess (29 patients), parapharyngeal abscess (10 patients), Ludwig's angina[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of buccal space of mouth Cellulitis of canine space of mouth Cellulitis of floor of mouth Cellulitis of gingiva Cellulitis of masticator space of mouth Cellulitis of oral[icd9data.com]
