195 Possible Causes for Endotoxic Shock

  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

    Health consequences of sexually transmitted diseases disproportionately affect women, making it important to determine whether newly emerged pathogens cause sequelae. Although the pathogenic role of Mycoplasma genitalium in male urethritis is clear, fewer studies have been conducted among women to determine its[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Gram-Negative Septicaemia

    Septic shock (also known as gram-negative sepsis or endotoxic shock) is fast becoming a major health care problem among hospitalized patients.[www2.hawaii.edu] See also electrical stunning. endotoxic shock caused by endotoxins, especially Escherichia coli.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] He was receiving an I.V. cephalosporin to prevent acute septic shock.[www2.hawaii.edu]

  • Acute Pyelonephritis

    Subcapsular renal hematoma (SRH) is an extremely rare complication of acute pyelonephritis (APN). We report a case of SRH complicating APN with a ureteral stone, together with a review of the literature.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ureterolithiasis

    OBJECTIVE: The tissue rim sign-a rim or halo of soft-tissue attenuation seen around the circumference of an intraureteral calculus on unenhanced axial CT-has been described as useful in differentiating ureteral calculi from extraurinary abdominal or pelvic calcifications. The purpose of this study was to determine[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    BACKGROUND: The serotype-specific effectiveness of 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV23) against pneumococcal pneumonia has not been established in people aged 65 years or older. We assessed the effectiveness of PPV23 in this population. METHODS: For this multicentre, prospective study, we[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Peritonitis

  • Gram-Negative Pneumonia

    BACKGROUND: Diagnosis of ventilator associated pneumonia can be made by quantitative cultures of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid or of protected specimen brushings, though cultures require 24-48 hours to provide results. In 80% of cases aerobic Gram negative bacteria are the cause. METHODS: A rapid diagnostic[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ascending Cholangitis

    Abstract An intussusception-type antireflux valve was created in the Roux-en-Y loop in 23 infants with biliary atresia (17 new cases, and six others after episodes of ascending cholangitis) and 10 patients with congenital bile duct dilatation, in order to prevent ascending cholangitis after hepatic portojejunostomy.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Abdominal Visceral Abscess

    Abstract This review describes the microbiology, diagnosis, and management of intra-abdominal abscesses (including subphrenic, hepatic, splenic, and retroperitoneal abscesses) in children. They often occur as a complication of local or generalized peritonitis, commonly secondary to appendicitis, necrotizing enterocolitis,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
