1,364 Possible Causes for Streptococcal Infection

  • Urinary Tract Infection

    Streptococcus pneumoniae infections in children are most often lung infections or meningitis. Urinary tract infections are much rarer. We present the case of a urinary tract infection with Streptococcus pneumoniae. The clinical picture was classical. The urine culture showed the presence of Streptococcus[…][]

  • Streptococcal Infection

    Neuropsychiatric disorders can also follow streptococcal infections.[] Necrotizing streptococcal infections involving the skin and soft tissues of the face are uncommon.[] As suggested by recent cases, the streptococcal infection was likely a trigger for narcolepsy onset in this genetically predisposed child.[]

  • Streptococcus Pyogenes

    In recent epidemiological studies, Streptococcus dysgalactiae subsp. equisimilis (SDSE) has been isolated from severe invasive streptococcal infection.[] It has been suggested that a host-related immunogenetic background, as well as bacterial virulence factors may play an important role in the outcome of streptococcal infections[] Infections/diagnosis* Streptococcal Infections/microbiology Streptococcal Infections/pathology Streptococcus pyogenes/isolation & purification* Venous Thrombosis/microbiology[]

  • Pharyngitis

    The pathophysiology, classification, and treatment of invasive group A streptococcal infection is discussed.[] FINDINGS: The 5 recommendations approved are: blood exams should not be performed; antibiotics should not be administrated unless microbiologic confirmation of streptococcal[] (URIs) per year and an average of one streptococcal infection every 4 years.[]

  • Scarlet Fever

    Close attention should be paid to streptococcal infection as a complication of varicella.[] Recognize the clinical manifestations of group A streptococcal skin infections.[] A person in close contact with another person infected with group A streptococcal pharyngitis has a 35% chance of becoming infected.[]

  • Tonsillitis

    Streptococcal infection is a rarely recognized cause of nonrheumatic perimyocarditis.[] In two of the children the cause was related to streptococcal infection, and to hemophilus in the third child.[] Antibiotics are used to treat group A beta-hemolytic streptococcal infection.[]

  • Hypercapnia

    We encountered a 2-year-old child with life-threatening hypercapnia, with a PaCO(2) of 238 mm Hg and severe respiratory and metabolic acidosis, due to status asthmaticus that was refractory to steroid and bronchodilator therapy. Suspecting ventilatory failure and excessive ventilation-induced obstructive shock,[…][]

  • Erythema Nodosum

    Four cases had double diagnoses as follows: streptococcal infection plus Mycoplasma pneumoniae, streptococcal infection plus LTBI, streptococcal infection plus Chlamydophila[] Anti-streptolysin-O titer: Elevated with streptococcal infections (10%), but normal levels do not exclude streptococcal infection.[] Currently, the most common cause of erythema nodosum is streptococcal infection in children and streptococcal infection and sarcoidosis in adults. [2] Numerous other causes[]

  • Pressure Ulcer

    Despite advances in reconstruction techniques, sacral pressure ulcers continue to present a challenge to the plastic surgeon. The flap from the gluteal crease derives blood supply from the inferior gluteal artery perforator (IGAP) and reliably preserves the entire contralateral side as a donor site. To incorporate[…][]
